NOTE: Sorry for the sloppy End Screen. I just found out that the old annotated end screens can no longer be a thing. I will produce all my future videos with that in mind.

Well everyone, I'm back with the 2017 Windsor Detroit Fireworks display.
Like every year I do like to talk here about what I do and don't like and i did try some different things.
In my desire to take still photos as well (I haven't been able to in several years now), I used an action cam (one very much like a GoPro) to take the video.
Since these have a very wide angle, it provides a bit of a fisheye view, which I figured would be a cool vanatage for once. I do think this worked well, overall, but will likely try to get myself a wide angle lens without such distortion for next year. I'm also hoping to not get such a wide angle for next time.
IT RAINED!!! Man, this was the worst part of the night, constantly wiping rain from my lens, and there are a couple minutes in the video where everything is blurry due to a drop that stuck to the lens for a bit. Hopefully it doesn't bother you guys as much as it bother's my wife. I, in the end, left it in, as I do want to preserve as much of the show as possible.
I did want the video to be in 4K like last year, as, at the very least, on YouTube, 4K at least looks like good 1080p should look, but due to camera malfunction, not only did we have to shoot in 1080p, but we also missed a portion of the display.
My channel has been around long enough, it's time for some self-branding. I've g iven myself a bit of an intro/outro. I don't want to make it the focus of my videos, and while it's still in development (it won't just be white text on a black backround forever, but I don't want it to be so flashy that it distracts from the actual content), it's going to develop as I go, as I'm just re-learning Premier, and I'm learning After Effects as well. The music for the intro was…
