In the 12th century the county of Tecklenburg emerged in the region that is now called the "Tecklenburger Land" in the western foothills of the Teutoburg Forest. It was annexed by the neighbouring county of Bentheim in 1263, and Tecklenburg still had a count until the 19th century. Tecklenburg retained some of its medieval townscape to date. Main sites include the ruined castle (now serving as open air theatre during the Summer) and the Stadtkirche (the main, old church) including tombs of the dukes of Tecklenburg and others prominent in the history of the county and city. Today, the city of Tecklenburg (from a perspective of size really not a city but a town) is a tourist destination.
Video is getting more and more an important means of communication. With a normal/simple camcorder/mobile-phone everybody can make interesting video's. Making a better video is a complete different story. Not because of technical difficulties, lack of experience or expensive devices, it is mere the creative idea or the ideal story, basic technics and a perfect finishing. I am a Dutch amateurfilmer and homevideo enthusiast. The majority of thesefilms on this site are samples of my short videos, editedwith iMovie and compressed with Quicktime. Play-QUALITY and Speed can be obtained by choosing and using Quicktime. Unfortunately, flash is not always playable, or in a much smaller size and sometimes does't produce sound. During downloading or watching you can read the corresponding texts and movie-related tips and techniques.
