From time to time we do find videos on YouTube which are not a silly waste time. A reader of SWIFT who goes by "zigb" commented on the lens flare item in the February 22nd issue and provided a link to Captain Disillusion's YouTube page. Being the curious person that I am of course I had to click the link and have a look.

Being a video editor myself I was hoping that the quality would be better than 90% of the regular YouTube stuff. To my pleasent surprise not only is the content of this video fantastic but the editing, storyline, character, effects, lets just say everything is top quality.

The videos are geared towards children but I must say I know of many many adults who would benefit from watching these videos.

The example you see here is a great examination of the "Fire Angel" video that has been circulating YouTube. This video is by far one of, if not the best, video explanations of lens flare we have seen. In the video Captain Disillusion shows the actual Fire Angel video and examines it showing why it is in fact lens flare and not an angel.

Make sure that you watch all of the videos on his channel. They are very well done. Also subscribe and pass these videos along to everyone you know. These are valuable resources.
