Very nice

Gave it a nod in my novel (though I call it a Republic in there.)

My daughter presently resides in Ashland, and I have fond memories of tubing down the Rogue.

Viva Jefferson! Viva Libertas!

Nice job. Here's some

Nice job. Here's some critiques.

1. Too much spitting, the last spit was grose.
2. Standoff cinematic is great, but a weird contrast to the commentary part.

Cool video. You guys are really fighting the good fight in Commiefornia. Wis here, I have my barely closeted Marxists to resist as well...

That was great. Where can I vote? :)

Also what cameras did you use; what editing suites for the A/V?

No voting!

It's not a vote based contest. I stay away from those now, having lost before to people who weren't disqualified despite blatantly buying votes.

I only used one camera, a hacked Panasonic GH2. All editing was done with Sony Vegas Pro 12.

I have watched a lot of hacked GH2 footage. It's a great camera, you used it well.

I think this was the first vid I watched that was filmed primarily with a hacked GH2, some action shots filmed with a GoPro.

There is so much talent here at the Daily Paul.
