Editing Tricks for Amateur Vacation Video #63

France 2004: Gloria's Secret Life

The acting "talent" was a little reluctant, but with a little coaxing Gloria agreed to become a human cannonball!

This is an imperfect but fun little vacation video that always gets a laugh.  The theme music adds false excitement as Gloria spins into outer space.  Did you notice that her feet are missing?  That's my Photoshop "skills"!  Fortunately her feet come back when she lands.

The photo was composited onto stock footage of the solar system.  

Lessons Learned:
Have fun editing and your audience will join you!
Use some gentle coaxing to convince your friends and family to "act" in the video.

Try new things.  I am not a Photoshop expert, but did well enough to create a still photo with alpha channel to composite onto the stock video.
