Seven days of Denison


As 2011 rushes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the year—but not the whole year. Instead, every image in this amazing video was captured during just four days in the spring and three days in the fall.

So buckle up, folks—this video is 2 minutes, 32 seconds of pure, flat-out fun.

Happy holidays!

I appreciate the images on this DVD but not the super flash images. They don’t allow one to see anything and, frankly, just gave me a headache. Is it possible to really see something?

you weren’t kidding about buckle up. Almost too fast at first, but then a pace to it to be able to digest the photos. college is still college, even at warp speed.

Curious – how many images were there?

This was way too fast and difficult to absorb, however, it’s a current reminder of some of the happiest and most rewarding days of my life at Denison.

Thanks for all the great comments. To answer a couple of the questions:

– There were around 1,400 photos used in the video

– For the music, we found and purchased an incidental background track that we thought fit the spirit of the video really well.
