Cool Octopus Encounter - and an Editing Experiment

I filmed this beautiful Southern Keeled Octopus out hunting on a solo dive the other night. This is a pretty common octopus in parts of Port Phillip Bay, but always a treat to see them out and about.

Editing Experiment:

Instead of splitting the clip into several segments and then creating a cut-together sequence, I decided to experiment with a technique I have never tried called time remapping. This allowed me to use the full, continuous clip while still only highlighting the most interesting parts and skipping through the boring or out of focus parts by speeding up or slowing down the video. I found it really fun playing with the speed and using it to time interesting moments with the beat of the music. I think it came out pretty decent for a first attempt.
