Our Little Muskrat Friend
Sibbald Meadows Pond, in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, is a beautiful little mountain pond, home to frogs, trout, wild waterfowl and our happy little muskrat friend. This short video is a collaborative project done with my partner—I shot one short video clip and he shot the rest over several visits to Sibbald Meadows Pond (see my previous post, A Summer Oasis: Sibbald Meadows Pond).
My partner gets all the credit for many patient hours of sitting quietly, watching and waiting for our little friend to emerge from his bank burrow. I did the video uploading, sorted through the footage to select the best bits and found the fun music by Rimsky. We did the story-boarding and draft editing together and my partner did all the fine-tuning and video rendering. We love working together.
