Long Thanksgiving weekend, nothing much to do, so what do I do? Being in the most festive holiday mood that I could be, an idea popped up in my head to make headgear for holidays. So I got into my red beetle wearing my green sweater and white sneakers (of course I was wearing pants 😀 , they were blue) and drove to Dollar store.. Before I go further with my DIY saga, here’s the link to my DIY : Holiday Headbands video –
Hope you guys enjoy it..
So I entered the store, stocked up my basket with everything holidayieesh I could find, billed them and vroom I came home. My head flooding with ideas and I started immediately. Kept my phone on record mode and made four holiday headbands back to back. You won’t believe by the end of the work, I had around an hour of content. This was my first time recording DIY work so I was like woow. All of them were pretty (at least I thought so 😉 ) and my model ‘Mr Fizzy Moon’ was delighted!
Now came the task to edit the video and I have never done this before. So I sat and started to uncover, discover, explore the depths of Windows Movie Maker and well, it is pretty easy and simple to use. Pain was to decide on what part to remove and what to keep. So as the amazing movie maker I am ( hear the sarcasm in the voice guys), it took me hours to edit the video, and this is just the video. I have not even started my blunder with recording the narration ha ha. Video was done and audio was the next in hand.
Clicked the record narration button and started blabbering the script I had prepared. I was so nervous as if I am giving some speech in front of thousands of people 😉 . After I am done, I clicked on play and I hear nothing. Absolutely nothing, pitch dark silence. Phew, here goes my first attempt in vain. Rebooted the system, tried record again but this time I was smart, I just recorded for 5 seconds to test. Experience! ha ha. Again, the same problem and now started my google work of checking if others have seen the problem. After researching for an hour and trying multiple things, I found the answer on Microsoft answers page – In movie maker, the drop down menu button in the top left -> Options -> Audio and Video -> Available Audio Devices: select your speaker device. And woo-la, my problem was fixed. Recorded the narration and I sounded okay but can’t help it, have to use it now. Then I added some background songs, played with fading in and fading out of the background sound and I was done. I mean I don’t know how does the video look and sound but I was done.
Clicked on save the movie. Opened YouTube and uploaded the video. Hope you guys enjoy it! I will try to venture on any new idea that pops up into my head and share with you guys..
Love you BlingTreeG Family!
