    Well, I haven't finished the real video yet, I haven't got enough footage that I'm happy enough with yet for the real video. But I keep getting asked by people I know and through PM's on here when it will be done. So I took this little short piece of it and put it up on youtube for everyone till I finish the real one.

    I kind of tried going in a format of a commercial for like a ice road truckers show or something. I know.... as if anyone cares that the video is of new people and storms... haha It just made it seem a little more serious.

    Haha, thanks. I know it sounds a little redilcous, but I just really wanted to get something up there to show and since I won't have the video done for another month at least, I thought I should at least put a part of it up.

    Thats a sweet video trailer. Are you going to use this as a form of advertisement?

    I honestly think we should all email discovery and get them to make a snow plowing series-like pick a couple different companies and spend the season with them. That would be so awesome!

    No, I don't plan on it. I mean if someone sees it, it wouldn't be bad. But I hired a professional multimedia company to shoot and edit a promo video to be used for advertisement. This one was all done by me, except that one picture of the tractor with the snow flying all around it was taken by him.

    I've been saying that for so many years! That is where the inspiration for the format of this came from. I keep thinking what the commercial would look like, and this is kind of what I came up with. Within my abilities of shooting and editing of course.

    That would be a pretty cool show. You should send them an email with the video and see what they say.

    I use the newest version (not sure what number that is) of iMovie for Mac. Its just the standard video software that comes on a mac when you buy it.
