Emerald Cities is a video montage which demonstrates the contrast in climate and environment of two cities in the month of February: Chicagos Lakefront at Hyde Parks Point beach front and South Beach Miami, Florida. I had the great fortune to video tape both these areas in February but Ill take South Beach over Lake Michigan any day. The education benefits from this video are a taste of geography, cool video editing using iMovie, a tasteful and interesting approach to smooth jazz, girl watching and an incentive to save up those frequent flyer miles to get to South Beach in February.
