DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that based on a research, people who take vacation are 30% less likely to suffer from heart disease compared to those people who do not take at least one vacation a year? In addition, traveling can also help aid people who are suffering from depression. Interestingly, a study also claims that spending money on travel can make you happier than spending your money on material goods. 

Because of the growing number of people who travel and use social networking sites, creating travel or vacation videos has also become a digital trend. In fact, an Infographic by Brianna Wenner regarding the significance of online travel video shows that "80% of online visitors will watch a video, while only 20% will read" the content. Meanwhile, the first video editors have begun to edit videos by connecting video scenes through the process of physically cutting and taping together the 2-inch magnetic tapes. A study shows that editing of the videotape was initially done without using electronic editing, audio dubbing, or even the slow and fast motion tool. Thus, video editors literally cut and splice 2-inch magnetic tapes to accomplish video editing. It was the company Smith-Editor, a mechanical splicing station, which helped improve the process of editing and final tape.

    "I am certainly glad I read this article before my recent trip abroad. Just doing a little research like the article suggested made sure that I focused my efforts on shooting what was worth taping. I know it sounds simple but I have overlooked this in the past. Reading this also reminded me of how silly the zoom feature is in replay. Do yourself a favor and read this article if you want to have something nice to show others."
