I saw you only had a few species of belemnites on your video. Woudl you like somemore species as i have like 10 species that you dont have on the video. Plus i have some huge cylindroteuthis pusoziana belemnites like 9 inchs to 10 inchs long.
Thanks chaps, glad you liked it. It's was just a bit of fun really but it certainly kept me amused (and frustrated) for a few hours putting it together - it's surprising how long it takes to do these things with all the taking photos, cropping, enhancing, captions etc...etc...
Yes fossilkid, I only had half a dozen photos of actual fossils in the video but I could only use what I have at home. Much as I would have liked to have used better images off the net, one runs into copyright issues. I could have fired off e-mail after e-mail asking for permissions to use, but then it would have snowballed and, to be honest, I just couldn't be bothered with all that palaver.
If you have any images, I'd willing take them, but I can't imagine re-editing the thing anytime soon as I'd rather make a different one. Maybe ammonites? Maybe the Norse god angle, eh Erich?
I have put a copy on YouTube to hopefully attract viewers to this website. Not that I imagine that there are many people out there who actively search for belemnoids on a public video site, but maybe I'm wrong?
Much that I'd hate to appear a pedant Jamie but no mention of just pictures there
I've a huge collection of belemnites (not necessarily a huge no. of species though) collected after excavating the necessary excavations in order to construct my own personal sewage treatment system, all of which Phil is welcome to if he can raise the postage !
If phil wanted some belemnites of mine that i have for trades ect then he can have them for free if he pays postage but he will have to wait until i go out collecting belemnites again. Im more into marine reptile and mammals now so i just leave all the belemnites on the ground as they are too heavy to carry loads back or even 1 or 2 as i need all the space in my bag for mammal bones and marine reptile fossils.
