Been Busy with this Video...

Sometime ago, one of my friends at work asked me to make a photomontage for her friend Niki's 40th birthday. Being a procrastinator, it took me 4 weekends to work on it so for the past month, my weekend was pretty much occupied putting this video together. Finally, I got my verdict yesterday from my friend. She and her friend's husband (who I've been coordinating with when it comes to getting all the pictures and some other info that I needed) saw the DVD and guess what was their reaction........ ha, I'd leave that to your imagination :o)

Niki's birthday party is set tonight and more than a hundred guests would be there. They rented a projector and screen and it's freaking me out a bit. It's the first time my video's going to be played in front of guests. Well, as long as the birthday girl would appreciate it then I would be the happiest frog leaping on my lilly pads. So after tonight, I guess I'd just have to wait and see :o)

I used similar, if not the same, templates I used to work on my previous videos. My main focus were the short funny scenes in between the photo "slides". I also got the comic strip idea (from the very beginning of the video) from Thet, my fellow blogger, who used this style on one of her wedding videos :o) Thanks missie! Some graphics I used I downloaded from Google 3d Warehouse. "Candy Girl" mp3 courtesy of Niki's hubby. All sound fx's were taken cared by my ever supportive hubby. I hate editing sound fx's and hubby used to work on this kinda stuff when he was a radio DJ back in Hawaii, so this comes super easy for him, plus the fact that this is something he enjoys doing. Hey, now that I think about it, isn't that cool?? Hubby and I really complement each other!!! Haha, I guess I have to save that for a different blog entry :o)

As of this writing, I haven't enabled the public setting for this video that's why embedding it here would only say "Video no longer available", but I created a secret link so I can share this with my friends. I don't want to fully publish it until Niki's party is over, which is tonight :o) So if you're interested how the photomontage looks like, you can view it HERE.
