I know Summer is over BUT

Monday, September 24, 2007
So, you all know that I wanted to learn how to make a keepsake video collage of Kate's homecoming. I decided to do two practice videos first. This one is of our summer fun. I know it is officially Fall but I just completed it. A BIG thank you to everyone who helped me figure out the music downloads (especially Debbie and Ian).

The second practice video is of Kate's 1st Birthday and Baptism and it is almost finished as well. Look for it in a few days. Although, I imagine these are quite boring if you are not in our family.

    SO fun - you are such a magnificent photographer! What I can't get over is how much your peanuts have grown these past four months - they all look different now! Seeing the video captures the gradual changes - what a beautiful family!

    Thanks for the email about making movies!

  12. Oh Kim, that was fantastic. You are so humble, it was really good! I so much look foward to Kate's Homecoming Video. I hope it will include the video clips of when you saw her referral, of Dave's gotcha moments, and your gotcha moment.

    Ciao, Paisley

  13. By the way - What video software do you use? And would you reccomend it? And how did you figure out the music for those of us who haven't made videos yet? Thanks.

  20. Kim - Love the video (and you got the music to work!). The beach part has to be my favorite. Love all those pics (obviously I love them since they are featured on my website).

    Thanks so much for the email. Definitely going to write down 5 things tonight. Thinking of them now. I'd love to talk to you tomorrow if you have a chance.

    Hugs,

    Danielle

  22. Great pics, great tunes, great director!!! Way to go for your first video. Aren't they fun to do? It is 1:27am and I should not be up. I have been putting together a long version of Ruby Tuesday with all of our videos and pics from that day.. I can see this becoming addictive. Can't wait to see more from your fun family!
    Hugs,

  24. Paisley,

    I used Windows Movie Maker. It is easy and free. If it is not on your computer already you can easily download it (if you have Windows) I had bought an expensive software program but it was a total waste of money as it was impossible to use.

    As for the music. I had to burn it to a CD from I*tunes. Then play it (rip it) from that CD to Windows Media* Player. Then, import it from there. Not too hard. Just more steps than I anticiapted. I thought after I purchased it from I* tunes, I could just import it to WMM. Not so.

    The homecoming video will probaly take a few more weeks. I want it to be just right.
