A test run

I want to make a video for Julianne's first birthday. Although it is two months away, it is sneaking up on me and I want to get it started and continue working on it for the next month or so. I'm not sure which program I want to use so I tried One True Media tonight because many people have recommended it. I wanted to try it so I made a short video of my pregnancy journey. In doing so I realized I don't have many belly shots of me (I stayed far away from cameras while pregnant)! Her first birthday video will be longer than this of course and will also contain some video footage but I think this was a good test run. And it didn't take as long as I thought it would. I'm not sure if I want to use this program for the other video. If anyone has any recommendations about other programs let me know. Pause the music below and then enjoy!

VERY cute. I have never head of this program, but the video turned out great, so it must be a good one! Can't wait to see her birthday video!

Wonderful!! You are so talented and always thinking of special things you can do for Julianne. She will treasure this soooo much when she is older! Great job, miss you all soooo much!

Beuatiful! I use Final Cut but I don't really know anything about any other programs. I made 1st year videos for my girls but Grady got jipped. Our video camera broke the week of his birthday and I couldn't get any footage loaded onto the computer (of course, I was trying to do it at the last minute). So good for you for being on top of it! I need to learn that lesson!
