New Trick for an Old Dog: Video

Warning: My kids and anyone who does this professionally will hate this video.

My son walked up behind me and looked over my shoulder. I was feeling a little chuffed that I was in new territory. “You’re using Movie Maker?” he asked, words drenched with derision.

“Um… yea. It’s just a quick info video, not a masterpiece,” was my answer.

Just wait until my daughter sees it, the actual video editor. In my defense, I made this for Instagram, without realizing it’s way too long for Instagram. Novice mistake. Since Instagram can’t have it, I will post it here so as to not waste my hour of trying something new.

There is also an error in the captions I noticed after I uploaded it to YouTube and deleted the editable file. Oops… and there it stays. Perfection is only achieved once we accept that it’s not happening.

New tricks for old dogs. We are always learning something.
