It’s a been a couple of weeks since I updated the blog, despite lots been going on I just couldn’t find time to write anything up.
I have also been working onÂ the first part of my Egypt movie (with some 800 photos I have had to divide the show into two parts). I want to put it on YouTube but am a bit loath to upload it with the backing music for fear of infringing copywrite laws, as I have used some dowloaded Egyptian music. Apparently you have to get all sorts of permissions to use other’s music. What a pain!
I have also produced a short film of ‘ A Wright’s Xmas’ using the new trailer feature in iMovie and footage shot using my new video camcorder. The family were a bit reluctant to be willing participants but I got sufficient video shots to produce something.
Editing video footage in iMovie is a bit clunky; I would much rather use the Mac software Final Cut Studio, but at over Â£800 I cannot justify spending that amount. There is an Express version, perhaps I should check that out instead.
I am looking forward to our holiday trip to California in May; hopefully I will take lots of video footage along with photos to produce an Oscar winning movie; or maybe not!
