PostSubject: My first Laura and Almanzo video   Thu Nov 13, 2008 10:24 am

Well, I forced myself to learn Windows Movie Maker this week and here is one of the results: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzYG03I3whc

As a virtual book tour coordinator, we put together video trailers to promote some of our author's books. When I couldn't reach the normal person who does them, I sat down and created one--which wasn't as hard as I thought it would be...though I'm still learning. Here is the video trailer I made for Garasamo Maccagnone's "For the Love of St. Nick": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8FGh73EtYw

I loved the last photo so much it's now my avatar.

Enjoy!

Cheryl

You did a great job....I'm to scared to do that. I would mess it up BAD! Thanks for sharing.

Aw, you picked some sweet moments Cheryl. Love Good job! Thumbsup And I like the 'book intro' of the other one too, enough that I might just need to read that! You're right, that's a beautiful picture, I can see why you chose it for your avatar! Wink

I really want to learn how to do that too. Was it very difficult Cheryl?

Thanks everyone. And Rhonda, that isn't even close to all the close up shots of Dean I have. I have screen caps from every single episode Dean was in thanks to my Divas. Luckily I have them organized on my PC in personal folders by episode, but it still took a long time going back and forth between that and Movie Maker to decide which photos from "Back to School" up to "Laura Ingalls Wilder" that I would use.

Coincidentally, I also have close ups of his rear....and the Divas had something to do with that too.

Thanks Amy. I tried to show how their relationship evolved with its ups and downs. Considering that I'm a technology dummy, I don't think it's overly hard. What I still haven't managed to perfect is how long the clips play. You'll notice in this first video that some of the photos faded one into the other, but it happened by accident. LOL! I also couldn't manage to get the wedding kiss clips close enough to each other to do the same thing, so it looked choppier than I wanted it to. I know how to extend them to make the clips stay onscreen longer, but I don't do as well in shortening them.

I reviewed Gary's book at The Book Connection. You can check it out here: http://thebookconnectionccm.blogspot.com/2008/10/for-love-of-st-nick-by-garasamo.html I enjoyed it, though I did feel there was a bit too much backstory in the beginning.
