Back in May, I spent three days in Provence and played golf for the first time ever. I brought a camcorder and shot a few sequences. A few days later, I sat in front of my Apple MacBook, launched iMovie, chose a soundtrack and edited the rushes into a cool (to me, at least…) 4 minutes video.

Not so bad, uh?
