Mourn not the Dead
by Ralph Chaplin

video by Bill Schaeffer copyright(C)2014

*****

Mourn not the dead that in the cool earth lie
Dust unto dust
The calm, sweet earth that mothers all who die
As all men must;

Mourn not your captive comrades who must dwell
Too strong to strive
Within each steel-bound coffin of a cell,
Buried alive;

But rather mourn the apathetic throng
The cowed and the meek
Who see the world's great anguish and its wrong
And dare not speak!

Ralph Chaplin, Mourn Not the Dead

Shot on location at Barnsdall Park, Los Angeles, California

In this edit we readjusted the contrast and brightness of many shots to expand the dynamic range and improve image consistency from shot to shot. We wish we could paint the dust hits out of many shots, but that is beyond our present technical capability.

Bird in the Tree

**

I started shooting the bird from about forty feet away. Over the next four minutes, I slowly moved closer until I was only five or six feet from the bird, standing motionless, and shooting video.

**

It is interesting to note how loud the bird call is and how much physical exertion is required for the bird to make that sound. The bird must really enjoy singing to do all that work.

***

I know the camera image is constantly interrupted by repeated automatic refocusing and the sound is occasionally "modified" automatically. I know the piano is slightly out-of-tune. I will probably have to start using a real video camera. However, this performance was very good for me with few mistakes. Oh well. Enjoy it as best as you can. Life is short.
