Help me find the source of this video clip, it begins at 2:08 here. It's a dance sequence,the one with the woman with short blond hair. Given the subject of the video it's likely from an advertisement in the late 80s - early 90s. The music playing in the background on the video is not the original music accompanying the clip.
I'm coordinating a project that involves sending participants to remote communities in the Canadian North. The communities have varying speeds of internet connection, but in general, I've been told it's pretty slow, and sometimes bandwidth is restricted. The participants need to record video of themselves and send it to their evaluators back here in the city. What is the best (free) solution? [more inside]

Many music videos from the late nineties, six underground by the sneaker pimps being the most salient example to me, have a distinctive cinematographic feel and style to them, with very high contrast (super dark blacks and popping-out, almost oversaturated whites); a lot of murky brown/green and pops of red/blue. Does this style have a name? Is it a film effect or some kind of post-processing, or both? digital? Why was it so prevalent in the late-nineties, and, correct me if I am mistaken, mostly just for music videos? [more inside]

I thought it would be straightforward, it hasn't been.

Last week, I shared the music video That's What's Up, by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, with my 15 year old and she fell in love with it. This week, daughter was assigned a project in her video production class to create an advertisement for the Sadie Hawkins dance at her high school. Inspired by the ES video, she's decided to recruit some youngsters from the on-campus preschool (where she is a volunteer) and film a short music video depicting a little girl asking a little boy to dance.

How can I save the LA Times' time-lapse video of space shuttle Endeavour's journey across LA for posterity (on my own computer)? It's really beautiful, but I'm afraid they'll take it off the LA Times website at some point. I'd like to save it for personal viewing later. I don't know much about these sorts of things (flask, etc.). I have an older Mac and no video capture card. Is this even possible? (Nevermind whether it's legal). Thanks all! Answer in the hypothetical if you prefer. ;-) Awesome shuttle video
