Suicide Off The Grand Canyon

What a way to go.

Park officials received a report of someone over the edge near Mather Point on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park at about 5:40 a.m. Friday. Responding rangers spotted a body between 400 and 600 feet below the rim, and witnesses told them that they saw the man run up to and over the edge.

Here I present to you a approximately 3 minute video made with some photos I took at South Mountain Park in Phoenix last week. It is a shortened version, with some of the personal photos removed.

I have been using Still Life for this sort of thing but have found Photo To Movie superior. Especially since it allowed me to export a dv file in the 16:9 aspect ration (which is how all my movies are since iMovie HD came out). I also really liked the quality of the titles and are looking for a way to duplicate them in iMovie when doing regular movies.

This movie is a MP4 encoded with H.264, which allowed a decent quality movie that has a 869 x 480 resolution but only be 7.1 MB in size. But you will need the latest and greatest version of Quicktime to view it.
