Really great, thanks! Gave me a lot of ideas for my upcoming trip.
QQ - what filter/effect did you use during the car towing scene to get the darkened borders? I really like the effect and am new to Final Cut. Thanks!
Its called a vignette. Some people say using vignettes is a crutch for footage but i don't care. I love the way it ends up looking. I did soft black oval border vignette and a defocus vignette. I did these both in apples "color" app which is part of the final cut studio 3 suite but you can def do it in after effects or final cut itself. good luck.
