Who wants to join me?????

I really want to try this project.  The basic idea is to shoot snippets of video throughout the month of February and edit them together.  Take a look at Hailey’s 30 Days of Grateful video below . . . it’s WONDERFUL!   Hailey Bartholomew is so incredibly talented and  inspiring.  She single handedly hooked me on video.  If you haven’t checked out her films I highly recommend taking a look.  I’d like to try to shoot my video clips with my iPhone, p+s and DSLR.  One of my biggest challenges will be the fact that February in Ohio is not the loveliest weather.  It will be dark and gray.  I guess that will just be another obstacle to tackle.   I saw an interview with Hailey where she encouraged EVERYONE to try this challenge even if you are shooting simply with your phone.  She also recommended this app for shooting an editing with an iPhone, but I know there are many apps out there for every kind of phone.  I downloaded the Vimeo app awhile back.  I haven’t played with it yet, but it looks pretty easy to use.

Please consider joining me in this challenge, especially if you’ve never shot video before.  This is a great way to jump in and get your feet wet.  What have you got to lose :).

Sylvia - Melissa,
I would LOVE to join you in this. I always enjoy watching your year in review movies and your 5X5s that you post (yes, I am a bit of a blog stalker). Since I attended the Freckle Photo workshop two summers ago, I have been working on improving my photogrpahy skills but never really tried anything with video! I am not at all sure how to edit video snippets but I am willing to learn and try!
Count me in!

Chelsey - Aaaaaahhhhh!!!! I’m thinking about doing it too!!!!! Same weather/light issues here – in fact it’s -40 something below today! But I do want to jump in & try. I might post something on my blog too. I think mine will be all iphone stuff just to keep it simple. Need to think through the logistics so it will happen!

Lucy - What a great idea, i want to do it. My new years resolution was to learn how to use video on my phone more. I also liked the concept of 5×5’s video projects. I recently learned how to make a QR code for videos I upload and include them in my scrapbooks, making them more interactive. Something like this would be great to include in there. Thanks for sharing the idea, this will be fun!
P.S. I also admire your great photography skills, thanks for the inspiration !!

Melissa - Sylvia- Yay!! So glad you are joining in!! I’m so glad you still stop by frecklephoto too. I remember you well from the workshop! If I can get my act together I’m going to try to post some video tips . . . not that I am a pro or anything, but I can at least share what has worked (and not worked) for me. Can’t wait to see you video!!!
