Yesterday, as you read below, I went out and took many shots and filmed scenes for the NokiaProductions movie with a group of really nice people who were brought together by WOM World / Nokia. This morning I got up early because I couldn’t sleep, the 405 never stops, unless it is rush hour. I had a great view but the hotel needs some soundproofing. Maybe I was just to excited and overtired from the day. Anyway I was up at 5:00PST. I started working on putting together my versions of the movies that we shot yesterday. We didn’t shot a lot of video but rather did many stills that I put together into one video. I used my own stuff because I was having a hard time with jumpcut and I wanted to crop images a specific way to make them more “movie-like”.

I cropped all the photos that I wanted to use and then uploaded them to jumpcut. However I couldn’t see them at all so I tried it again, same deal. In frustration I pieced things together using windows movie maker. This is how that one came out.

With windows movie maker I was able to make images inverted so the two gunslingers for the video looked like they weren’t shot from the exact same spot. Then I made things look like and old film and sepia toned. I added the title in jumpcut when I uploaded the movie there.

After uploading the movie I made in movie maker I saw the images that I had uploaded earlier. So I made a quick movie with those images, added transitions and music and then saved and published that movie.

Next I made a movie out of the movie I had uploaded form Windows movie maker, I added a title and some music and then published that one. I encourage you to go to JumpCut and leave me a comment on the movie and also vote for the one that you like best. I know which one I like best.

    Karen,
    Jiving and Grooving? Me? I think not, but I did enjoy the concert, it was very fun. The band sounded great too.

    Allison,
    Thanks hon, I had a fun time making them.

    Thanks Chica,
    The sepia one is better, it wasn’t created in jumpcut. Jumpcut is a difficult little site to use, so many wacky intricacies.

    Nick,
    It was a fun time but I worry that our work was in vain because I can’t add a thing to the nokiaproductions group.

  9. The NP staff is working to get everyone’s stuff up on NP as soon as possible.
