Water and video usually don't mix, unless you're attending H2videO School, where you get an extensive, hands-on education in underwater videography. Licensed cavern guide Len Bucko teaches the 5-day courses, which covers the entire process from pre-production to final output, including composition, lighting, modeling and diving techniques. Classes are held on the Yucatan Peninsula. For more information, visit: www.h2opeakperform.com.
Back to Afghanistan
Washington Post videojournalist Travis Fox has filed a set of five video vignettes titled Return to Afghanistan. Fox spent three weeks in Afghanistan on the project, which examines the transformation of this Asian country post-Taliban. You can view Return to Afghanistan in the Photo & Video section of the washingtonpost.com (http://www.videomaker.com/link.cfm?id=53) using the nearly universal Flash browser plugin. The presentation includes commentary by Washington Post correspondent Pamela Constable and includes quick facts related to the country that appear as the video plays.
