I see that someone has presentation skills and talent. Great clip composition AP. I wish recorders like that were available when my kids were young. Lots of pictures but nothing like that. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you guys like it.
I do too, but I'm a little bias.


Sailor, actually, the first draft became the "Director's Cut" because it was nearly twice as long. I had to go back a skip a few weekends, and shorten all the clips, to fit YouTube's 10 min limit.

It's more the software and content than talent! The right music makes a huge difference. Usually I end up using none out of frustration, because I can't seem to find something that works (at least not with some universal appeal
). This time, the music inspired the whole project, rather than the other way around.

I know what you mean about media of the kids. I now have the bulk of my parents photos scanned in (slides for the most part. talk about tedious!!!), and there is nowhere near the volume of stuff we have accumulated. But, even in Rachel's lifetime the equipment has changed greatly. Cellphones can now capture video nearly as good as a "prosumer" camcorder of 10-12 years ago. It's simply amazing what current equipment can capture. Roughly speaking, HD video is 30, 2 megapixels stills, compressed, and written to disk, every second!!!

You don't really notice when all the elements come together well, but the bulk of this video is actually still shots with the "Ken Burns effect" applied (panning/zooming). So don't hold back your creative juices. Breathe some new life into your old photos with modern software!

Very cool video!

I wanna know what software you're using. I've tinkered with Photo Story to make photos "move". But haven't done a lot of mixing media like that.

I've considered an HD camcorder a few times. With enough light my point-and-shoot camera captures decent video, but I suspect a good camcorder would do even better.

Buy a Mac, and you'll have everything I used, plus a UNIX box, and the ability to boot Windows.


I love my Canon HF100. One 4GB card holds one hour, and fits on inexpensive DVD-Rs. Although of late, I've been just storing all on 2 hard drives. Soon, I think the 4GB cards will be cheap enough that I may start using them as consumable media. Each shot becomes a separate AHDVC file, which apparently is the native blu-ray format (I haven't delved into that yet). Trans-coding is necessary editing, but a click-n-forget operation. Battery life is very reasonable too. Previous camcorders were a PITA with battery life. No moving parts means no mechanical sounds mudding the audio -- another plus.

Amazing, isn't it?! I remember when a 32MB card was a 100 bucks!

Good thing the government hasn't stepped it to make it more "affordable"!
(just kidding!
