    Default 2013 Monthly Video project - May - Tribute to the Wethfakawe people of Brazil

    Guys (and Gal),

    Not sure if May has a topic yet but if not I'd like to propose a challenge that recognizes the plight of the Wethfakawe people of Brazil -- as you know, they are only two feet tall but live in grasses that are seven feet tall, hence they are never seen but often heard scurrying around and uttering their distinctive cries -- "Wethfakawe!?! Wethfakawe!?!"

    I know, that one is OLD, but the challenge is as follows:

    - film some place but don't tell us where it is (just make sure there are some decent clues in the video)
    - the "winner" guesses the correct place

    I came up with this due to the fact that I am flying to my Uncle Vito's birthplace next week and I was planning to get some footage-- hopefully you will recognize it!

    nice try with the boat, but my parents took me there last year so i recognized it right away

    also way too shaky; almost threw up at 0:16 and again at 0:47

    Ha Ha, You gave it away when you said it was Uncle Vito's birth place.

    I actually did try to make it hard -- I sped things up 5x, removed all the sound and ordered the clips so that solid clues are later on in the video. You guys are better forensic experts than the team on the original CSI show!

    What you probably don't know is that I was one of the writers on the original CSI.

    I also have an affiliation with the original CSI -- they once used a product called "Limbic" to analyze a shoeprint -- the actual product was for handwriting analysis but I guess they thought the shoe print looked cool -- I ran the Canadian wing of the Limbic development team

    Not really, but here is one of the video clips at normal speed with sound -- that should do it!
