Inspired by Earth Day, Adam sets footage to Vienna Teng’s “Landsailor”

This is what happens when you get struck by inspiration that has to be done in a day, that very day. I had another VEDA vlog already in the can that I was going to upload next. But when I woke and realized it was Earth Day, the inspiration bug bit and I wound up with a strong desire to make this video instead of uploading the one I already recorded. I’m glad I did; it was fun to make…even if it’s up late (both for VEDA and for Earth Day) as a result.

I’ve enjoyed Vienna Teng’s music for nearly my entire adult life (I first saw her open for Joan Baez in 2004, unless I’m mistaken), and it was a real treat to edit something to one of her songs.

Vienna Teng’s “Landsailor” song has been made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0, Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) licence.

I GOOFED ON THE CREDITS (AGAIN)! This is what I get for churning out a video every day this month. In addition to some typos, I failed to credit Glen Phillips as the male singer in the song. You can find more accurate credit details about the song at its entry on Vienna Teng’s Bandcamp.

This video is comprised of a mixture of original footage and stock footage.

Original footage by yours truly.
