One of the most powerful yet unattainable things we interact with constantly. The wind, beautiful, overpowering, intimitading, motivating and inspiring. Capture the wind. How do you do it? Show me your way! Here are 2 of my favorite ways the wind is captured:

Second video coming soon!

    What a promo. It takes your breath away (no pun intended). It’s beautiful to see the way the wind effects our everyday lives. I love how the director has portrayed the actions of the wind.
    The wind is generally deemed to be an annoy feature, but then 2 people have the ability to look outside the box and see another meaning for it…it’s beauty and usefulness.
    Looking forward to the next video.
    Now thinking on how I would capture wind…okay the only thoughts in my head are South Park’s Kenny lighting up his farts! lol I’ll keep thinking

    I’ll never look at the effects of wind in the same way ever again.

    Whenever I feel the gentle brush, as a zephyr caresses my face, I shall search for a French man, dressed all in black, and invite him to sit with me! πŸ˜‰

    It’s funny how the last post related to Rainbows and this one relates to wind. I think wind can be just as beautiful. (I have absolutely no intention of creating a crude joke out of that last sentence!) The boundaries of my house are surrounded by trees, and in the autumn or fall, depending on what side of the planet you reside, I love to sit in the garden and watch the leaves flying on the wind.

    It always amazes me how, considering the wind is random; just like fire, it can appear alive. I like to watch the wind play with the leaves, like a child with a balloon, trying never to let it touch the ground. The patterns of the flying leaves are enthralling and magnificent, but I guess when you think about it, all of nature is magnificent; deadly, but magnificent all the same!

    Okay I hope the link works.
    I just remembered these pictures of my friends and I playing with kites. Yes we are about 23 in those pictures, and yes some of us had been drinking, but sometimes you just have to embrace the inner child

    Hey Allison, I love how they portrayed the wind as a tall man in black with a French accent. I never thought of wind that way. I have a question for you. Do you speak any other languages then english? I speak french and I heard Michael Rosenbaum speak it. It’s fun to hear people speak french with their English accents. I love it! OHH I have an amazing guitarist ( who taught herself how to play) with a beautiful voice that I wanted to share with you. Her name is Carrie Hryniw and she lives in Edmonton, Alberta. She came to Winnipeg and she performed live in front of me. I thought with your passion for music you’d be interested. The thing is that she’s not that big yet and I have no idea if she’s on youtube but I’ll check. When she played in front of me I was speechless with an idiotic smile upon my face. Alrighty, looking forward to your next video of the wind. Bye, Britt

    This is crazy Allison… We two must be today in something like mind connection… πŸ˜€ Because I was today again in our garden and the weather was sunny and really windy… I was standing there watching into the sun… The wind in my face… I was like.. Aaaah this is so awesome!!!
    I think, this mack event is really something for me πŸ˜€

    I try to capture the wind by…

    1. running against it so it looks like you’re not going anywhere; and…

    2. Sticking my hand out the window of my car and acting like a plane wing…going up and down. The wind almost feels tangible when I do it.

    The wind is a carrier, of many. Never forget that the wind can start on the other side of the world, bringing with it all that it has passed through, whether it be through a field of wildflowers, passing over a hot cup of coffee, through someone’s ears, brushing through a romantic moment, or passing by a joyful accomplishment, or just maybe flying through another one’s lips, as they bless the wind with a sweet message that will pass on to you and all it goes through.
    So always during a brief moment of wind, say a message (a kind one) because who knows who it will reach, and what it can do for their day!

    Wow!

    I was lost when the video started and totally confused, but now I am just in awe. That was the coolest portrayal of an element ever! πŸ™‚

    As far as your site goes, I agree that black doesn’t seem to suit you, maybe a green, or purple. Or maybe something that goes with the up-coming season, Autumn like orange and yellow.

    I was also curious to know if you’re thinking about doing another “Ask Allison” any time soon.

    Wow that video is brilliant. Very amusing and very cool how they captured that. Oh man I’ve been missing out on all these wonderful Mack Events…I feel very bad about that. But you know how life gets so unexpected somtimes…*sigh*

    Very very nice.

    Not so hilarious ( for me ) but very poetic.
    surprisingly poetic.

    This wind is like a breath of… oxygen

    I love that.

    the wind…
    yes…
    always… The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
    like… Dylan’s lyric….

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    Yes, ‘n’ how many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they’re forever banned?
    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,
    The answer is blowin’ in the wind….

    Bob Dylan… words

    Capture the wind? For me, I want to enjoy the wind.. feel it move across by body, through my hair. The wind is wild, yet calm.. it can bring you a cool breeze on a summer day or it can bring hell on earth as mother nature has shown us time and time again.

    The best way to capture wind in my opinion is with words.

    Absolutely wonderful video! But he looks a little too big for me to try to capture him. A note to anyone who does manage to capture Wind, it is okay to make attempts to influence him but PLEASE don’t try to take away his spirit. Remember, it is perfectly fine to bend Wind, … but not to break Wind!

    If you disregard this and do break Wind, I can only hope that he eventually ends up on a park bench near a man that runs a methane powered energy facility!

    Why is a “Wind Fall” a good thing? He could do some serious damage if he fell!

    I kept wondering why nobody yelled at the guy, and at 1:05 I finally figured out that he was the wind. Damn, I’m slow.

    Hi Allison.
    I found 2 advertisings where the wind is present.
    The first one is a Wall Mart’s advertising before the french version of the TV serie Lost.
    The second is the beginning of a Montreal TV serie ” Les hauts et les bas de Sophie Paquin”
