Bored Chefs - My first video attempt!

Updated on November 22, 2010

After being inspired by Sky321 I downloaded VideoPad Video Editor, as it seemed to offer better facilities than the Window Movie Maker, and found that it's really simple to use!

My first effort is purely experimental and to get used to using the program, so I chose a fun subject, using a series of photos I had which show how chefs have carved fruit and vegetables into strange and exotic designs!

My soundtrack was limited to what was available at the time, which happened to be the A Team soundtrack.... Go figure! - my nine year old daughter loves it!

Anyhow a pleasurable couple of hours only marred by the necessity to hear the bally soundtrack several million times to adjust the timing of shots.

It's making no statement or breaking any new ground, but I'm pleased to find out that I can do this, and hopefully others will also get into making personal videos for our hubs!

NB: Having just watched it myself, I see that I will need to work on the quality of images! - and these images are great, so I have also added the images as photos at the end of the hub!

I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better, I must do better!

Next morning..... and I have just noticed that this is an ad free zone! - not that this bothers me, my annual AdSense income would just about buy a tank of gas!.... in fact in a way it's rather refreshing..... maybe?

      Well Sky321, I was inspired by you, so take a bow! and the A Team music was about all I had left to use after a hard drive burnout last year!..... Somehow I doubt Spielberg works under the same constrictions!

      Next video will be a new look at old songs!

      Glad you like this one, they will be better as I get used to the program, ironically 15 years ago I worked on a BBC edit suite, so it's not difficult for me, but one forgets, and also I was editing HD VHS tapes with rather more edit facilities!

      Thanks for viewing...

      "Anyhow a pleasurable couple of hours only marred by the necessity to hear the bally soundtrack several million times to adjust the timing of shots."

      As someone who's made a few FMVs (fan made music videos) I know all too well about the wonders of having to listen to one song a million times.

      Nice hub, btw, and very interesting video and photos.
