It is a good video for people to get a perspective of wintering a hive. I shared it with members of the Western Australian Apiarist Society a few days ago.
The only thing I didn’t do was look at the climate date for where you guys are.
thanks for the feedback. Great to hear you liked and shared it. BTW it was filmed 3 May 2020, just south of the centre of Sydney. So it’s mid autumn here a probably a bit cold at night with sunny dry days at them moment.
Yep I liked that it was recent and Australian bee content.
Thanks Adam, yes Bruce is a very good beekeeper. Known by many in several countries. I always learn a lot watching him. Did you see the part on wrapping frames? I’d never seen this done before and thought it was a great idea for winter.
I am with you @Emmanuel, first time I had seen or heard of “wrapping”… well done on the video, its excellently put together, may I ask what program you used to edit and collate the video?
Did you notice the queen? I didn’t but Bruce did… have a look at 13:23mins, she was on the top of the queen excluder. That was a close call!
Hi Rodderick, thanks for the feedback. I use a few things:
and a few other plug ins.
Are you a video editor? What do you use?
unfortunately NOT! … I have been trying to put a short beekeeping clip together for a market promotion on the north shore here for World Bee Day next week and am trying to use OpenShot… but my laptop is really struggling under the load. Was hoping there was a lightweight software editing program where I could add some text and fade transitions, nothing complex, the video needs to be only 30secs.
Yes video editing is a huge load on computer power. IMHO it takes a good fast machine and a good video card to edit in realtime, especially 4k video. There are a few bits of software around but I only have experience with a few. I don’t really know of the one you spoke of.
Are u a member of the NSBKA? I’ve met michael Symes from the club a few times. They seem like a collection of good beekeeping people up your way.
If u need assistance with the video maybe I can help you out with the editng. Just let me know.
Hey Emmanuel, yes. I am on the committee with Michael. I regularly enjoy popping down to your club for the Mead Meetups with Matt. I grew up down there and know a few members of the club quite well. Its a fantastic spot and clubhouse you have, we are working towards building something similar in the next couple of years at Terrey Hills.
Thanks for the video tips by the way, I did some filming today for World Bee Day coming up this week, its pretty amateurish but its the best I could manage. Should be up on Facebook and Youtube soon.
