I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
It took a while because I spent a lot of time waiting for occasional breaks in the cloud cover! Filming in autumn you only get a few hours when the sun's high enough.
Hopefully the next one will be mostly in the console room...

We had about 5-6 takes of Ani, because she kept missing the fence(!) and yes, the poor bike got some terrible abuse.

I'm still using Cyberlink PowerDirector 4 for the basic editing. They're now at version 6(!) so it's probably time to upgrade. There are several other editing suites in this category, all fairly similar. I also used Windows Movie Maker for the web format conversion.

Normally that's been sufficient, but this time I also found a really tekkie thing called VirtualDub supported by AviSynth, which I used for some of the special effects, video massaging and 16:9 conversion. AviSynth actually involves scripting, so it's only for the terminally geeky. It does do better special effects though.

Virtual Dub is great :)

Watched the latest foray this morning, C, and was suitably impressed, especially with the intercutting of the "other" footage with the bandages... and is it me or is your TARDIS getting lighter in colour?

Well it's possible the paint is fading - it is interior paint and she was outside for a long time, though of course I'd be the last to notice. It may also just be the colour balance in the video - a lot of the shots were regraded to deal with ambient light and the differences between the cameras and the borrowed footage. I probably should have graded the TARDIS shots a bit more, as they are a bit light...

Actually, I love it, for although she does appear very light, it looks suitably old and weathered, and it's very reminiscent of that totally gorgeous model of a Police Box that was on ebay recently...

Just a heads up that the next Scarfwearer outing has commenced filming - I have about a minute of rough-edited footage so far. I don't like spoilers so I won't say anything much about what'll be in it, but I hope to get it out before Xmas.

Crispin,

Great job. I love the black and white old fuzzy tv look to the beginning. Nice job on the console room too.

So I see you have the doors working but does the time rotor move yet?

Not yet - I was hoping to, but that'll have to wait now.

OK, I've put up a Windows Media version instead that will stream from the server so you don't have to wait for a full download when you watch it on the web page. If you find it's stopping to do buffering, let me know and I can put up a more compressed version, though it's already smoothed out most of the video noise I deliberately introduced as it is. :(

Alas I'm too shy to have it on youtube - much too public for me.

Ahhh so is that why you cover your face with a Scarf? I was concerned more along the lines of elephant man. You know if you post on Youtube you can make it private for only those you want to have access :) but seriously Crispin, your website pops first in almost any TARDIS DR WHO Search on google. SO I dont know you can be concerned about being public. LOL

Scarfwearer is my alter-ego - it started because I wasn't sure I wanted to be that public with this new-fangled online forum stuff (okay this is going back a bit), but it's sort of taken on a life of its own... plus it disguises the varying length of my hair when I'm filming over a long period. ;D
The website is public enough, but the videos were originally only reachable from Rebuilders. It looks like google has found them though. ::) I feel I'm taking baby steps with video and I don't feel really ready for wide exposure.

Crispin,

Your stuff is very creative and is far superior to most of the crap that is on Youtube! I think I speak for many on here that your vids are very enjoyable.

I was just ribbin ya on the scarf, everyone has to have their alter ego persona.

Keep up the great work!!

I think you could go more widespread and still remain safely unknown. as others have said, your scarf wearing counterpart would take the attention. Your films are clever and I know many who fans who like them as well as more who would love to see them.

An Unearthly Scarf is a classic Scarfwearer production - Wonderful!

I loved 'Tilt' ;D

Well the sign is just printed and stuck to a piece of hardboard. I searched google for "Old Road Signs" and up came the Old Road Sign font in TrueType format! Some dedicated soul has made up a free font to resemble the signs.

I'd not thought of looking for a real Totter's Lane, but I just had a look on google maps, and it turns out that there is one, in Hampshire, between Farnborough and Basingstoke. So I typed in 76, and it gave a location. So I looked at the satellite imagery to see what's there:
Well intriguingly, it's fairly remote and there's a few buildings a little south *and* nestled in some trees, there's a *small blue structure*! I'm almost tempted to drive there and see what it is... :D
