Yesterday I made my first wedding video.
Daughter no:2 gave me a copy of Pinnacle and I used it to put all the photographs I took at Saturday’s wedding into a video, with transitions between the photos and set to music (Marvin Gaye’s How Sweet It is and Shania Twain’s From This Moment).
For a first attempt I was quite pleased with it. We burnt it off and gave it to the happy couple as a wedding present.
They were absolutely delighted and said it was the best wedding present they had received.
I was amazed (and very pleased).
Now they have asked me to take the pictures provided by their photographer and do the same with those. They reckon I should do this for a living… it’s another option.
So today I am going to be creating wedding video number 2.
ALL our items sold on eBay yesterday. Man and I are traders! Man sold an old wireless modem and I sold four Wii games. We are now about £30 better off and have approximately one cubic foot’s extra space in our houses. Two boxes ticked there then – more cash and less crap.
Oh and I signed up to a stock photo agency. I’m going to place some of my photos and see what happens. It doesn’t cost anything so I have nothing whatsoever to lose. Definitely worth a try.
The UK’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations continue today, which is a Bank Holiday. Man and I are off to see the lighting of one of the many beacons throughout the country this evening. We will be going to Wollaton Hall in Nottingham, a favourite haunt of ours.
There will be music and street theatre and the lighting of the beacon. I’m looking forward to it.
But now I have my first commission to attend to. My first request for a wedding video. Just call me Spielberg!
