You know that feeling when you look back at the old scrapbooks you made and you're so embarrassed that you, indeed, were the one who made them? I mean, what's with the confetti? Bubble letters? And why oh why did no one tell me to stop cutting out EVERY SINGLE PHOTO with the alligator teeth scissors???
Well, this is kinda like that.
Or it will be, in a year or two. I'm sure of it.
I was really bored one day last week, and while I should have been packing, I decided instead to teach myself how to use iMovie and make a little compilation of our honeymoon. You see, I am totally and completely obsessed with videos--especially travel videos. They have a way of drawing me in and consuming my emotions until I just have to see these places for myself (though I'm often disappointed that I don't immediately hear sweet background music the minute I walk off the plane). It's a real problem. So, not surprisingly, at the top of my "Careers I Wish I had Chosen" list, is videographer.
There's only a couple problems…
1. All I have is a GoPro.
2. I don't have any video editing software.
3. Oh, and I have no idea whatsoever how to make videos.
I don't care though. Just like I still love those embarrassing scrapbooks with the Winnie the Pooh stickers and gel pen borders, I adore this video.
And I can't wait to make more.
And if you want to read the stories behind parts of the video, here's a start.
