A video of Red, a loved, red tabby cat who died too soon. He was loved by Marc. Marc contributes to this site by making interesting and useful comments. This video was made by me as a thank you. Marc will no doubt make some comments to fill out the story of his beloved cat.
Of course the material for the videos was provided by Marc. You’ll see slightly strange formatting in the video section (vertical). I am not sure why Marc’s camcorder recorded like this. It actually makes no difference. It may even improve it.
What message do I get from the video? A joie de vivre from Red and piles of love from Marc. And that simple but powerful message comes through in Marc’s comments too. There is a free spirit in Red, which for me comes across very strongly.
At the end, the video presents other versions one of which is the one above. Another version is very short and just video material. The videos are held on Vimeo. I have an account with them.
There is nothing really clever in the video. The motto is keep videos short and simple. I evened out the exposure of some of the video material, faded in some still images at the beginning and at the end, and added some words.
