K-27 in Arizona!

This is my first film edited with iMovie HD and the first upload to YouTube. I shot it with my Sony still digital camera on the movie setting. The Bachmann K-27 is pulling a short local freight load (all AMS rolling stock, weathered by me as is the locomotive. I shot this on the large scale outdoor layout at the Arizona Model Railroading Society in Glendale Arizona. I tried to make it look as real as possible, but some rookie mistakes crept in. Better luck next time. I hope it meets with your approval. Thanks.

EBT - I am actually an old hand at shooting both video and film professionally. I hadn't intended to shoot motion at all, but decided to try it. All I had was my Sony DSC T-9 still camera. It has a video mode, so I tried it. I wasn't planning to enter the film in the Cannes Film Festival, so I just handheld it. I don't think it turned out so bad as it was. The last shot is the worst as I was shooting between my legs! My Spielberg, "what continuity?", shot is also the last one. I shot it with an entirely different set of rolling stock between the loco and crummy.

Mark - I am running iMovie HD 6.0.3 on a Macbook Pro with Leopard (Intel) OS. Why would "they" block YouTube?
Jerry - Actually, I have to confess that the sound you hear was edited together with sounds from Skywalker Sound. I couldn't seem to load the audio I recorded with the video, so I improvised. Next time I will figure it out. I think it sounds good as it is, even though it is "over dubbed". I have a Phoenix system on the K. It sounds hellaciously good chuffing round the bend!
