A couple of weeks ago, my wife gave me a Flip video camera for my birthday. Last weekend our church held it’s 7th annual 5K run, and I thought that might be a good place to figure the camera out.
Uhm… there’s not a whole lot to figure out. Press the red button to start, press the same button to stop. I’m giving this the Official Brother Jones Stamp Of Approval. Even WE can use it!
I edited the 70 clips I shot and put together a two minute short on the race which was shown at church the next day. The congregation seemed to enjoy the way (thru Hollywood magic) I had the youth ministers pregnant wife (who was pushing a baby stroller) cross the finish line way before her husband did. Ahhh, the joy of making things up… on paper or on film. Some people would call that lying. I prefer to think of it as being very creative with the truth.
