Over on the right in the resource list, catch the first of a string of movies from our time at Castine. It is called "White" and captures a dimension of the village of Castine. Filmed by and starring our own Rick Barter. :) Edited and saved as a quicktime in iMovie on an MLTI iBook. ( Will take a couple of minutes to load on a broadband connection).

For more information on creating videos using iMovie, go to these pages:

A special thank you to Rick Barter, Laura Richter, Elizabeth York, Jana Diket, M.J. Learned, and others for taking the wonderful raw footage of Institute events!

Blog the Boat

The first 30 people who reply to this post get free tickets to a harbor tour compliments of Maine Maritime Academy. The tour departs from the Maine Maritime dock at 4:30. Don't be late! The winners will be posted at Inspiration Station at 4 o'clock.

First 30 responses should meet at Inpiration Station at 4:10 for a guided walk down Pleasant Street to meet Captain Mike Alison at the wharf. Those who might want to drive down may park in the parking lot down at the waterfront and assemble at the Breeze ice cream stand. We will pick you up at that point. Departure from the dock is at 4:30.

Become part of recording the history of this institute by borrowing a dv camera and shooting to your heart's delight. If you haven't done it before, and wish to, we'll show you how to import it into iMovie and edit it. Rick Barter and Laura Richter have already started the ball rolling. Eight more cameras are available.
