E.B. GO Vision Media has been under contract to help document, organize, edit, showcase and archive the lives of Princess Red and Mickey in video and still pictures since their births in June 2008 and May 2010 respectively. This has resulted in a massive archive with hundreds of hours of raw video and thousands of high-quality photographs representing much of their young lives.
In this era of unlimited and affordable digital storage, it pays to just shoot, shoot and shoot and then just keep piling the material into organized archives. Keeping it organized right out of the gate is key, because plowing back and trying to find what was shot when can be a frustrating process.
The Princess Red & Mickey You Tube Channel and the webpages here at the E.B. GO Vision Media website showcase videos, slide show videos and more as the process of editing reveals more golden nuggets to share with everyone. This archive started before they were born and continues all the time. Going through the archives is a painstaking process and finding still pictures to coincide with and enhance a video can a daunting task. Slide shows will be generated either by web based programs, Click Here to see Princess Red Slide Show #1, and whole videos will be generated from just still pictures. You Tube Playlists will be displayed on pages of this website, like the just created showcasing videos of the year of Princess Red’s life which can be seen by Clicking Here.
An example of finding golden nuggets just happened when E.B. GO was plowing through the early video files of Princess Red and found the raw footage of her First Blessing and First Bath videos. Videos were edited using photographs shot on those first days at home and are now on their You Tube Channel. Princess Red was featured in the Ventura County Star Newpaper, left, in the Your News section because of the what E.B. GO calls The Pic.
The pictures seen here are examples of finding the proper location to create memorable moments in time. The Princess Red picture, above left, was shot on Valentine’s Day 2009, when she was eight-months old, at the Farmer’s Market at 3rd and Fairfax and works because a shady spot was found and she was prompted to look up so the ambient light and flash made Princess Red’s eyes jump off the page.

Mickey’s picture, right, was taken on his first birthday and fits many terrific parameters for a good photograph; light from behind highlighting his hair and light going in bringing out the blue eyes. Princess Red and Mickey are good subjects and for the most cooperated in getting their images captured on video and still pictures.
