For instance, if I'm looking at my video and the wind messed it up, could I play the video on the computer and record another video with my voice over? Then you can just take the voice over from one video and place it on the video with poor sound? At least for this dinosaur that would be easier than getting a mp3 or wav file done correctly....

The footage should be shot in landscape - horizontal - 16:9 aspect ratio.
For HD that would be 1920x1080. ***No vertical shots please!***
I don't take many videos, except to capture interesting trains that pass. And I had absolutely no idea what numbers were involved.
But then, when I went to look, I found the phone was set to this!
Which is perfect, as it's one less thing for me to have to attempt to learn...

But it begs a larger question for me that might be aimed more to Paul or Andrés: What/when/how much footage would be advised taken as recordings with the gardener behind the camera pointing to what they've done vs in front of the camera doing things?
I'm guessing desirable results will vary greatly depending on individuals and their works, as well as if there is an additional person to take footage vs. stationary auto shots, and a mix should be attempted in any case. Just wondering if any of the producers have a vision of the final product they would like to nudge participants toward...

I don't know if they will be useful or not as unfortunately that is the best camera I have. It's a piece of crap for shooting video though it said it was 1080. If you'd like something else or want me to reshoot something just let me know. I'm realizing in hindsight I probably should have filmed me loading more wood into the RMH after showing it burned down and saying it was time to add more wood.

I think we need more submissions to be able to show a full picture! & totally this is the best time to do it, anyone else wants to participate? If you have any questions or need guidance, please let us know :)
Do you want us to share all the details in the first post in the video? Or can that be submitted in written form? I am trying to figure out how long the video should be. One of just the stove running will be short. I haven't made many videos so I am hoping to make it a useful video.
I mean specifically
The information needed:
average temp (average high and average low) in December
(example - Missoula is 33/19 - according to google)
estimation of quality of insulation and square feet of your house
story of heat and annual cost
what sort of indoor temps do you maintain
if burning wood, what are your December wood burning habits like (100% wood? Burn all day? Evening temp different than morning temp?)
footage of the system in action, and maybe also of the outside during winter times
