Thanks for all of your kind comments! This has been a really fun project.
I'm working on the next already, a short hike in Shenandoah NP with Alan Dixon a few weeks ago while I was on a business trip to the DC area. The concept of a 24 became readily apparent on this one, I had a plane to catch!
In response to others, the software used to create these is a combination of iMovie and Final Cut Express, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The film is captured with a number of cameras, including a Panasonic DMC-TS1, Olympus E-P1, Panasonic GF1, and Canon Vixia HF100. Not all of these go on all trips, of course :)
Winter is really starting to come to Montana hard now, so I'm pretty eager to find out what we can do in 24 hours in mountains covered with really deep snow.
In addition, I have plans to do an intermezzo sometime over the winter that takes a more inside look at my 24 hour trip gear, and production of these little films.
