https://vimeo.com/117768602

The PDD drone, piloted by Cory Fechner (liftoffaerials.com) was at the start of the 2015 John Beargrease Sled Dog marathon yesterday to shoot aerial footage. There were other drones at the starting line so we ventured out into the woods to capture the mushers a quarter-mile into the race.

Music: “Guit. Ditty” by Hattie Peterson from Twenty3 Years Into 4teen Songs.

Walking to Duluth

We have no idea if Julian Holenstein is really walking from Thunder Bay to Duluth via frozen Lake Superior or if the title of his video is a joke, but either way he’s worth a few awesomeness points.

PDD Video Lab: 1972 Birnamwood Homecoming Parade footage

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFoJkXeTXWg

Birnamwood, Wis. is in the vicinity of Wausau, a roughly four-hour drive from Duluth, but this 43-year-old parade footage is lovely enough to share anyway. Kudos to Duluth’s Kip Praslowicz for digitizing his grandfather Emil’s fine film work. Below are some possible soundtracks to go with the film.

Poll: Best Duluth-related Video of 2014

We’ve closed the Best Video of 2014 poll, and with an unusually low response that was all over the board, we’re calling it inconclusive. In hindsight, expecting people to watch all of the nominated videos is a lot to ask. We discussed trimming the list down even more, but felt that each of the videos there deserved to be considered.

The post with the nominated videos will remain.
