A Submariner's Video "Scrapbook"

Submariner "herrwest" put up a nice 6 1/2 7 1/2 minute video that's a compilation of his career in submarines, with both still pictures and short video clips:



I think this kind of 21st-century scrapbook is a great way to personalize your career for family and friends. Has anyone else done something like this they'd be willing to share?

Update 1228 12 Oct: The video was lengthened slightly and re-posted with a new URL; the new link is included above.

Update 0808 13 Oct: The video was lengthened slightly again and re-posted (again) with a new URL; I updated the video link so it should still be watchable, but I'm not gonna chase it around anymore if he changes it again. What you'll hopefully get from this post is that making a video of your career could be a fun activity.

Sort of boring to watch, bad music and made using a very simple computer program.

I can't imagine family sitting to watch it, maybe, but only if it were playing in the background at some social event.

Oh' who gives a shit if an old computer editing program was used to put this thing together.

I thought it was very good. The musical overture selections added an endearing touch to the film. Seeing it, made me wish I was 17 again with the thought in mind to join the Navy and possibly try out for Submarine school.

Great film.

Thanks,

I take it that some folks did not recognize the background music as the submarine theme from VICTORY AT SEA. Well chosen. BRAVO to PO West.
