California Road Trip with my youngest son Joel. Thanks for a great trip son!
Talk about awesome company . . YOU ARE!
This video shows some highlights of our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, along the Pacific Coast Highway, through Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, the Post Ranch Inn, Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Santa Monica and Venice Beach.
All the footage in this project was shot on an iPhone 6 Plus in “time lapse” mode, then edited in FCP X, Final Cut Pro X, where I added effects and changed the timing mostly to 25 or 50 % of the native time lapse speed.
Video shot by Myself, Joel Smouha, and my great friend Barbara Tapp, artist, of Berkley, California shot the opening scene . . Thank you Barbara!

Big Sur was our special treat of a 2 day stopover- we stayed at the Post Ranch Inn there, which was a total spoil time. Thank you to my daughter Mardi for taking me there last year for a birthday lunch (Mardi you have to go back & stay!)
