My First Video...
First of all...my hat goes off to Vanessa - Ms. Leo - Cat and Dollies Series for the making of their video stories. Whew, It's a lot of work loading this stuff! It's not all bad but for me it was extra difficult because I need a new mouse. It's literally being held together by duct tape, LOL. Unfortunately, with my mouse the way it is, it made it really hard to manipulate the timing of speech bubbles. What should have only taken maybe an hour to do, took me like six hours. You will notice one of the speech bubbles is pointing the wrong way and I didn't cut one off before the credits at the end but I'm just too lazy to fix it. ;)
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my very first video story. It's a little dull because right now, I'm not so focused on the story telling lately (if you can tell) as I am camera angles, lighting, dioramas set up, still trying to figure out main characters other than Brooklyn and now...videos. :) I don't know if I will make a video each and every time...I think Vanessa has the right idea with short photo stories here and there for a little updating on characters and such so I will try to keep a nice balance. I see the simplicity of videos for the followers. It's nice to let the video scroll through the photos for you and easier to follow who said what as far as dialogue.
Oh, I also opened a separate youtube account strictly for these videos. The youtubers I currently follow, I don't think they're the collector type crowd so...I'm keeping it separate. You will find my channel under PLASTIC BROOK and I've already subscribed to all of your channels. Please feel free to leave any suggestions or tips that can be used in my next video...such as loading my OWN music not YOUTUBES. :)
Thanks for following!
