Evil Laugh Video

A family of friends challenged us to make an evil laugh video. Here’s what we came up with.

Sharkie claymation movie

Clara received a claymation movie making kit from Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas. This is the first film she created.

Friendless film

The family and I have made our latest film. It’s the story of a little girl who doesn’t feel like she has many friends and goes looking for them in an adventurous way. Along the way she has to make difficult choices to give up the very things that promise to help her find friendship.

We really hope you enjoy it. Don’t forget to click in the bottom right of the video to watch full screen. The girls had me include a pretty funny outtake at the end (after the credits).

All the girls piano recital

Don’t tell Rachel that I included her in this video. The battery ran out right before the end of her piece with the vocal teacher whose students were also part of the recital.

The girls are both doing really well with piano. This recital marks the end of Rachel’s piano teaching (at least for a while) since the baby is due on March 4th.

The Gift 2

The girls decided to make a movie today. They asked me to help them film and edit it, but other than that they did everything else. They even sat by me while I edited and composed the music in sonicfire pro. They told me which background to choose, what it should say, where to cut the video…everything. Clara was ecstatic and made sure we all knew she was the director.

During the entire editing process she was picking out problems and making plans for the next video.

This is what came of it:
