First YT video...

My son Harry had recently bought me an iphone and since then has presented me with a gorilla tripod complete with iphone attachment (and a wide angle clip-on lens but that'll be a different blog). He knew how much I'd wanted to make some videos and thought he'd do something about that.

So today I wrestled with Windows Movie Maker - it's very straightforward once you get the hang of it and watch a few tutorials and listen to loads of tips from encouraging pals. Harry had even sourced Lightworks in case I decided I didn't like MM. How could I fail in the face of all that support? 

The problem was I'd taken the video with the iphone on the gorilla strapped to my regular tripod during daylight (lighting's on the Christmas list) but hadn't realised that it would record the Netflix series Continuum, the dog barking and my less than ex-convent-schoolgirl remarks. I eventually worked out I could simply mute the video on MM and then when uploading onto YT add a free music track. Simples! 

So...enjoy. If I would change anything it would be the tiny speck on the iphone lens - once you see it you can't stop watching it - and how dry my hands look. There'll be a slathering of Body Shop shea butter on my paws before bed tonight and every night thereafter.
