Snowking Fireworks: Relive the Show

It was going to be big for me, I was going to have an awesome set-up for live streaming the Snowking Fireworks, the evening of Sunday February 28, right here in on, but of course it didn't work out as well as I hoped. We were too far away. I parked on the Dettah Ice Road, not knowing how big or high up the fireworks would go. As they started I quickly realized that we were to far away, but didn't know what to do. The way we have the camera setup it wasn't as easy as moving the truck, although next time the camera will be on the somewhere. Halfway through the show we decided to move, so while still streaming, my brother reached out of the truck window and picked up the camera and we went. Rattling over the make shift ice roads and then making our own path we found a place which I thought was close enough, unfortunately it wasn't but we made it work. During the first half I was playing music on repeat so there was not dead air, then for the second half went to commentary by my brother and I, which in my opinion we better, would love feedback.

I tried to take some photo and failed horrible. I didn't have a tripod and I couldn't remember what the best settings for fireworks would be, but they did turn out slightly artist.

The show was excellent and I was not expecting that much, so congrats to everyone who put on the show. They have started off the 15th Snowking Festival on a good foot and look forward to the rest of the events that will be put on. Below is two photos of how I had the cameras set up. It was warm enough that they could be outside. I also want to thank the 55 people who took at look at the live stream, I can certainly say I will be doing this again, as long as it doesn't cost too much.
