Video of Michael in Wellington, NZ - Nov 07 by HelenBachari on 31 May 2008 1:22am
 
I've finally managed to put some of the video of Michael speaking at the 'Literary Lunch' in Wellington, NZ in Nov 08 onto Youtube. It's a slow process downloading the footage from the mini-dvds to my pc, converting it to .mpeg files and then transferring it to YouTube in five minute 'chunks'.

My Youtube Id is 'libyaau'

Enjoy!

Thank you eversomuch, Helen, those are awesome vids ! Finally had a chance to watch them yesterday and really really enjoyed them. Thank you for the effort, I know it is a painfully slow process uploading vids on YouTube.
It's a pity though that I can't sometimes understand what he's saying due to poor sound sometimes and people laughing. Especially I'm interested in what he's saying when asked "what are you NOT capable of doing" at one point - he says something funny coz people are laughing, but I can't hear his words...
I absolutely love his hand gestures. Elegant.

Hi Kisch

Thank you for your 'thank you'. It was a truly wonderful experience to be in the same room as Michael and to hear him talk (it was even better to meet him for a few brief seconds at the book signing afterwards!).

I was disappointed that the sound quality in the video wasn't the best. I also had to focus only on Michael when I was recording as Maggy Barry (the lady who interviewed him) was sitting in front of a large window and if I tried to include her in the view finder everything went 'black'.

Over the weekend I'll watch the original dvd on the tv and see if I can pick up on the missing words you mentioned.

Cheers

Helen

Yes, Helen, I noticed that sometimes you were panning away from M.P. to get wide shot, but the light from the window turned everything to darkness. Though I don't ever mind the close-ups of Mr P., which are a lot there !
