This Week in Maine, I'm starting my VELP-ME project,  I am filming in UHD and 4K video, it was necessary.  I am still working out the kinks... I'll be adding to this video later on this week, or add clips to the collection.  the film below can be watched in full screen version and is available to view here on my site.  This will evolve as we get things set up.  Enjoy.

I planned for the rollers which did come but then I didn't plan for the fog... ah well the best laid plans of mice and women....  I apologize for the clicking sound that’s the camera trying to focus in the fog next time I'll do manual focus see how well that works.#mainemarineart #deborahchapin#pemaquidpoint #VELPme#seaandsurf #searollers #maine_igers#maineisgorgeous #coastalmaine

  • The unexpected always happens just about the time you think you’ve figured everything out. This morning the rollers were great but fog rolled in and obscured the light.  Still fairly dramatic. I apologize for the clicking sound that’s the camera trying to focus in the fog.  If you want to see a full screen version and the whole film that will be available later on my website.  #mainemarineart  #deborahchapin #pemaquidpoint #VELPme #seaandsurf #searollers #maine_igers #maineisgorgeous #coastalmaine
  • Sorry I’ve been out of the loop for a while but had Some company over the Fourth of July weekend then my mom decided that it was a good to get the summer flu.  But I built my cabinet, receive the editing equipment, set it up, and have been practicing so I haven’t been lollygagging. 
So Saturday morning is looking good for a little drama practice run.  Heads up!!! #maineart #maineartist #videotour #VELPME #deborahchapin
  • Trying this again yesterday it wouldn’t load. Treat from the painting garden.
