Editing Tricks for Amateur Vacation Video #10

Galapagos 1994

This was my first attempt to create a "Music Video"

Blue-footed Boobies entertained us with their mating dance when we visited the Galapagos Islands in May of 1994.  This video attempts to choreograph the birds with Frank Sinatra's old hit "The Continental".

Selected from six hours of source footage, these two minutes are easy to watch!  
Still hampered by VHS tape technology,  it's obvious that I made some extra effort to be selective when linking together the selected clips.

Lessons Learned:
Appropriate music accompanied by video content created humor and a fun little video.

A digital edit could more precisely link the video action to phrasing of the lyrics.

Music Copyright Considerations:
This is a short excerpt from one of my oldest edited videos.  It is intended for illustration and educational purposes only.  Please understand that I do not encourage improper use of copyrighted material.
