  • At last we've finally found the hours to bring you a taster video of what is to come in the next few weeks.

    Our web master DaRKeTaMiN came up with the idea of using the video clip on the home page instead of a logo.  Cool!

    The video is only 90 seconds long and has no sound track but we are creating a video library page of local scenes and events, with soundtrack and some with a commentary, which we are busy with now and should be ready for viewing very soon.

  • Thanks for the feedback and the compliments. 

    We have a 5 minute video of Los Gigantes with a commentary which is out of edit, 
    as well as several from carnival ? so look out as many of you appear in very amusing carnival costumes.

    All I need to do now is catch DaRKeTaMiN and handcuff him to his computer (fun for some) for many hours to create the pages.

    Others short films are in edit at the moment, you?ll just have to keep watching to find out more, but some highlights include clips of whale and dolphin boat trips, with underwater shots of the resident pilot whales and dolphins in their natural habitat (filmed under licence from Medio Ambiente) plus a short documentary of how they were filmed.

    The natural beauty of Los Gigantes is clearly seen in photos and film, but what most people miss is the beauty that continues beneath the surface of the sea.  Therefore we are working on several short video clips of the underwater world off Los Gigantes which includes stingrays and angel sharks.

  • Due to the recent attack on the site the new video pages have had to be put on back burner until all the work has been completed to restore the site.

    I don't think you should give up the day job PM, can't see the BBC offering you a presenters position :)  However this selection of videos is probably the best thing that's happened on this site for years, thanks for a job well done.  Pity the Tenerife Tourist Office, and in particular the numpties that appear to run the Santiago del Teide Council can't seem to take a leaf out of your book.

  • Excellent.

    These videos should be given wider exposure. If placed on Youtube or linked from the Toursist Board website they will  bring in more visitors.

    The Carnival videos are first class.  Well done.

  • For quite a while now DaRKeTaMiN has been experimenting with video clips, looking for the best way to view them on losgigantes.com
    YouTube was the first experiment but we were far from happy with the quality - the clips on the forest fires are being re edited and will be included in the new library very soon.

    Last year we completed a documentary on the Whales and Dolphins.  All the filming was done from Los Gigantes.  I have put together a shortened version for losgigantes.com doubled with some clips from 'the filming of'.  It was a very interesting project to work on and we were honoured to get permission for 1 year to film and observe these remarkable creatures.

    See for yourself  - click on whales and dolphins in this link (scroll down to number 7 - we'll make that clearer tomorrow). www.losgigantes.com/Video-Player.html

  • As this website also caters for Puerto Santiago and Playa Arena both in terms of its message board and advertising, will there be another video promoting Puerto Santiago and Playa Arena as they are not mentioned in the first video which only mentions Los Gigantes?

  • 2 new videos on the video page
    Many people gaze at the beautiful cliffs of Los Gigantes and can only wonder at what lies below.  I?m asked the question over and over again.  Special to Los Gigantes is the Stingray feeding site, where many stingrays will come up to a diver and gently take food from their hand.  An awesome experience as many of these rays are up to 2 metres in diameter!
    The second short clip is from an amazing dive on Punta Blanca (near Los Gigantes).  Our original objective was never achieved! But what happened was rather amusing!
    See the videos to find out. They?re called ?Stingrays? and ?Fishy Presenter?.
