New Art Video on YouTube

February 16, 2009

Yesterday I decided to do another video at Animoto.com which is great fun. Because I wanted it to be longer than 30 seconds, I put in a lot more pictures than usual, and made sure I picked music that wouldn’t be too short.

We had cleaned the house and were ready to leave for the two-hour open house. I just barely managed to finish creating the video, and after uploading everything, the site said that it might take a couple of hours to process my video. So I just left the page open and went with my husband and our dogs to have a picnic. When I got back, Voila! My video was ready.

You really should do this.

I’m still working on a lot of digital art. Maybe I’ll have more to show tomorrow.

    Aren’t you the accomplished one? I loved your production and you have my curiosity piqued. I’ve never thought about trying anything like this, but then again I never thought I’d have a blog either. I plan to check it out. Thanks trailblazer.

    Pretty cool. You’re a YouTuber.

    I used Animoto for a (free, short) video of my daughter and boyfriend going out in the evening in a canoe on the lake. It was very romantic! They liked it, and thought the video looked great. It makes you look like you know what you are doing, whereas Animoto is really doing it all. The trick is to have the photos in the correct order, so that the sequence flows. At least in the free short videos. I haven’t done a purchased one yet.
    I have used Windows Movie Maker for a video I did with 5th graders doing an Indonesian puppet theater production. That was quite the experience!
    Video is, of course, a whole other artistic experience. Martha, perhaps you already know about this website, but check out the YouTube video on this.

    I am completely captivated.

    I’m soooo impressed. Your paintings are the necessary base to work with… a great way to show them off.
