This past weekend, Jo and I headed out to Wolmido to shoot the latest segment for my Korea Blog series on Incheon. We had a grand time and managed to not only snap up a few great pictures, but see some pretty remarkable things.
That’s right- a shih-tzu running along a fortress wall. Freaking sweet!
For this video, I once again used the GoPro and Edutige microphone. Unfortunately, the day was quite windy, so the popping you hear in the video is a result of all the wind that was buffeting the microphone. The dead cat did a great job of removing the noise, but there was still some interference with the mic itself.
The GoPro really came in handy when filming the ride scenes. In fact, they operators really didn’t want me taking the camera on the rides. However, after demonstrating that the camera would not fall out of grasp and that I was okay if it did and broke, they relented and let me take it on board. I’m really pleased with the way that portion turned out.
Overall, the video wasn’t my best, but I think that’s because neither Jo, nor myself were feeling 100%. I do recommend heading out to Wolmido though. It was a fun place to check out and you can do it as part of a Chinatown trip. The rides were great, but I wouldn’t waste time on the Korean Traditional Garden. You’d be better off going to a real folk village.
