Dateline: 19 October 2015
Cider season comes and goes kind of quick and I didn't want it to go by this year without getting a YouTube video about Whizbang cidermaking done. I finished Part 1 this morning (it took nearly 12 hours to upload to YouTube).
I have to admit that I rushed the filming and heavily edited the content (to get the time much shorter than it would otherwise have been). I have a lot to learn about making a good video, but I think I'm getting a little better at it each time. The main point is to show and tell the story as clearly as I can. And, hopefully, sell more Whizbang Cidermaking plan books.
The most endearing part of this little movie is the last part, where my grandson (Futureman) grinds a bunch of apples all by himself.
Futureman was here for a week earlier in the month and learned all about making apple cider. He really enjoyed the process. Hopefully it can be something of a "tradition" for him and me in years to come. And if it is, he will have a great lifetime memory that he can look back on long after I'm gone.
Teaching my grandson agrarian ways and making good memories together, when we can, is my objective.
