Monkey Mia Revisited - with embedded video

When I say the sea is the same size as the sky, I mean colour!. It was amazing actually - very hard to see where the sea ended and the sky began. It was like an endless horizon. Also ignore the annotation "Eliz was here" if you don't know Eliz! It may take a minute or three to load, and probably longer over dial up. (sorry)

This digital story was made in Microsoft Photo Story.

Fantástico,, meu amigo fantástico!!!
Took me 1 1/2 minute to load but the result is well worth it. This is flash, right?
Which presentation software are you using, Powerbullet?
Must try it out myself :-)

No it's not Flash Bee. It's a Windows Media Video (wmv). And it was created using Photo Story. I don't know Powerbullet, but I'll check it out.

just a brief comment, not referred to your post but to your presentation earlier today with the BAW2005 community. I enjoyed it immensely, thought it was very clear and to the point and left with a feeling of " I can do this with my students and how they would benefit from the implementation of these tools!". Both the content and form of your presentation were impecable.

Thank you very much Ale. (Ale is referring to a presentation held earlier today in Yahoo Messenger. See

Wow I love the Monkey MIA clip, I was quite calmed by watching it. Photostory does a great job, I imagine it is a series of stills made into a wmf or wmv with an audio track added. Works really well, the zoomed and panned effect really does make it seem like a captured video. The water at times looked like it shimmering. How large is the rendered source file? was it easy to embed into the blog?

Rendered source file is a lovely phrase Stephan! The .wmv file is 4 MB. Was it easy to embed? Sure, once someone gave me the code. Surprisingly easy actually.
