Make a Valentine Video

Picture of Make a Valentine Video
I decided to make a video for valentine's day inspired by drawing with light. http://www.instructables.com/id/Write-or-Draw-with-Light!/

I added my own guitar and singing for background and ideas.

Drawing with light is very time consuming with a digital camera that only allows up to 4 seconds exposure time and up to 40 seconds in between taking pictures so I added stop animation and pictures to the video.

Pick some audio to go with your video. It could be a song, you could use one you have, play guitar and/or sing. Print out the lyrics, get ideas to illustrate the words, or write your own.

I like to play Oasis' Wonderwall so I first recorded it with my Digital Camera. Once I started adding a lot of animation the sound quality was bringing down the video so I re-recorded guitar and voice separate using garage band.

Thanks, I appreciate that. But I do need to work on since I only sing when I have to, like playing guitar twice on stage:

Sounds like they recorded it IN the bass amp...haha.

thanks, i don't sing, and i cringed every time i heard it working on it :/
Like most people, they don't like hearing their own voice, but theres nothing wrong with your voice in this at all. I like listening to it.
