While I was doing “video practice” on Wednesday, Ginger Deaton told me about a Halloween card she had made. Sounded interesting, so I told her to e-mail some pictures – even though it was going to be “after the fact” since Halloween had already passed. And it was interesting . . .
But what really struck me was the new Tim Holtz lantern that was the focal point in the middle of the card. And pictures didn’t do it justice – so I tried the video thing again.
I’ll warn you ahead of time – I have been shooting this stuff with my cell phone, and this is my first attempt at moving around. It’s really shaky – I think I would do much better with my old camcorder (it’s bigger and the movements are smoother) so I’ll probably try it next time. I had really planned for Ginger to do the narration – that was vetoed very quickly. So I did the best I could, but you’ll learn very quickly that I needed a script. However, the Halloween theme made its way into the video – for some reason the card seems to ripple back and forth as I moved around.
And there is a surprise near the end that some of you may find interesting . . .
