This weekend was my second opportunity to attend and participate in the annual Trapper’s Rendezvous campout held about 30 minutes west of Newton in southcentral Kansas. Two years ago, I shot a series of videos of different “mountain men” character re-enactors. (“Storychasing the 2010 Trappers Rendezvous“) My favorite video from that trip, however, was the video interview, “Trading an Alligator Tooth for a Laptop.” Those videography experiences encouraged me to create a longer (13.5 minute) documentary this year with my iPhone. The high definition upload was a little over 1 GB in size, which makes it the largest, edited video I’ve shared online to date. Many thanks to everyone who agreed to be interviewed for this video. Enjoy!
More photos are available in this Flickr set. Also check out the ten minute video I posted from the weekend, “7th Regiment Kansas Volunteer Cavalry, Bushwhackers, and Jayhawkers (Kansas in 1861 – 1865)“.
