On Monday I couldn’t get internet connection. There was no point in trying to write since Punkin was feisty and hardly slept. I played around with iMovie while he was in his play yard.
I have lots of Funny Bones clips in iMovie (see pic below – told you I love costumes), but I haven’t had time to edit them due to moving, babysitting, editing my book, and so many unexpected issues to deal with.
Yesterday I finally discovered how to do the special effects for video and audio in iMovie. Oh, so much fun playing around with them! I used the x-ray effect for the video and the robot effect for audio, plus added some other weird sounds.
I’d like to thank Susie Lindau of Susie’s Wild Ride for inspiring me to get back to making Youtube videos. Her post of 4-18-12 featured her first Youtube clip. Check it out:

On Monday she discovered Movie Maker on her new laptop, so she whipped up a video using photos taken at the Mystery Night event at the Corona Public Library in California. We (BBH McChiller co-authors) read Monster Moon excerpts and signed our books. Maria added the song Monster Mash to the video. Perfect! It turned out pretty darn good for her first Movie Maker project:
Have you ever edited a clip for a Youtube video? If so, did you find it easy or hard? Please leave your link in my comments section if you have a video you’d like to share.
If you haven’t made a video, do you enjoy watching them on blogs? Or not? I’d love to hear what you think!
