In June 2009, Blaine spent two weeks in Chicago. The primary purpose of the trip was for work, but there was definitely time to explore the city of Chicago and to see the sites (Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium, Art Institute of Chicago, The Chicago 'Bean' in Millennium Park, etc.)
It's taken a couple months, but I've finally created a movie of the fun that was had. Take a look at the video Chicago - Sights and Sounds.
Production Notes: The introduction (spinning and scrolling pictures) was created in After Effects. The rest of the video was put together using Sony Vegas. The HD video was shot on our Canon HV20 HD camcorder, mostly with a wide-angle lens.
