"Home" Redux


As I said in my post, "Home", I liked the music but thought I could make a better video to go along with it. And so I set out today to do just that. The results aren't exactly what I hoped for, but they're close. One of the images I grabbed never appeared on the program I use to make these - Photo Story 3 for Windows. Turns out it downloaded without a specific file type. Thus it was invisible to Photo Story 3.

Oh, well.

It took a long time to get those images - so many out there, and not nearly enough time to look at them all - and then import them to the program, arrange them in the right order, watch a preview, go back and add more images, reaarange the order, watch the preview again. And again. I must admit I got teary watching the bloody thing. Every time! But teary in a manly way, mind you.

But I finally got the video finished. Gary Puckett & the Union Gap performing "Home" accompanied by a slideshow of images. I hope it pleases you, makes you think.

Thanks, again, Gary Puckett!
