Howcast How-to Videos

Howcast How-to Videos

I wanted to write this post simply because I’ve just come across a service called Howcast for the first time and I’m quite excited about what they’re doing. It’s also a good opportunity to rave a little more about Foursquare, a check-in service that I happen to be quite partial to. Rather than just providing another video sharing service that would stand very little chance of competing against the...

Christchurch Red Zone Video

A friend of mine in Christchurch recently visited Wellington. When she got back, her first remark was how strange it felt to be in a city centre again.

A friend shared this super cool video of Christchurch from before the earthquake. Created by a Vimeo user by the ID of “lukaskaupenjohann”, the video is shot in a clever timelapse mode and makes the city look like a toy town with toy cars and trams racing around. In their own words: I shot this timelapse together with some friends on my exchange year in New Zealand. We had...
