Thanks to the DIS, we have been able to have some pretty amazing trips to WDW! This past trip was our first with a video camera, and my husband put together what I think is a fabulous family video (I'm a bit biased, though!;) ). I won't say it compares to the Wolfs or bosox2001 videos, but I'm really proud of the way it turned out. I would be honored if you'd watch it, and I hope it fills you with the magical feelings we all get from WDW!:goodvibes

Here's the link:
Disney World Family Vacation Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmYz8kLryF8)

(USE VIMEO LINK IN SIGNATURE IF YOU'RE ON A MOBILE DEVICE!!)

Just a bit of background about our little (big?) family--it includes my husband, Brandon, the editor of the music video, myself, and our three wonderful kids. Julia is 7 and a very intellingent, creative, and bossy big sister. Brynn is 4, and she's equally as smart and creative, but she also has to deal with High-Functioning Autism and Dystonia (she'll be the curly-haired one, who wears earmuffs in several sections). Sawyer is our baby, and he's two....VERY two...the two-est two year old I've ever met!

We went in September and stayed at Caribbean Beach Resort and Polynesian Resort.

THANK YOU in advance for watching! It really does mean so much to us!:goodvibes

Cute kids.

I'd love to be able to use that in "our" video that we will do this summer...

Thank you!! Which one of the songs did you hear? Someone told me on youtube that they had used "Good Times," which I think pretty much sums up WDW, but I wasn't sure if you meant that one or one of the other five songs:rotfl2:!

I want to say a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you who have watched and/or commented with such kind words :goodvibes! I know fifteen minutes is a long time to take out of your day to watch a silly little video of a family you don't even know, and believe me when I say that it really means so much to all five of us that you'd spend the time to watch what we worked so hard on. I just don't know how to express how grateful we are that you're appreciating the love we put into it, especially since it was our very first attempt at video! THANKS, Dis friends!:cloud9:

I know that time is coming, so I am so happy to have the memories of all those looks of awe captured! I know they'll still always love Disney, just like your kids, but this is definitely a special time :goodvibes.

So fun - nice job dad! On the technical side - I liked how the clips were not too quick to see/read! Fun to see Halloween decs as we are starting to contemplate an October trip... fingers crossed!

Loved the princess kisses for Sawyer and how he grabbed Mickey's nose in the pic! And the girls with Tigger and Merida were so cute.

And lastly, stop making me hungery for Disney treats!

thanks for sharing,
Sydnerella's Mama

Your video is just magical. :wizard: I've got a decades worth of WDW home videos at home, and this makes me want to compile them all into one masterpiece. Maybe someday I'll get around to it.:)

I've never watched a trip video before, but yours was so amazing that I had to go out and find more to watch. Honestly, none of them compared and I couldn't finish them. I'm on round two of yours because it's just so. dang. good. You're all so cute and look so happy.
I can't wait to read in your TR about everything you just showed us!

awesome video! what software did you use?

Fantasyland Mom
01-15-2013, 06:48 PM
awesome video! what software did you use?
It was Adobe After Effects. Brandon uses Adobe Photoshop for his job as a Civil Designer and his side photography gig (yeah, engineer by day, artist by night!), so he learned it as he went and said there were lots of similarities. I really have no idea--I'm definitely not the technical one!!

Hi, all! Just to answer some questions I've gotten...see the software answer above this sentence. Our video camera is a simple Canon Vixia HFM52; it's nothing special, it's tiny, and we got it the week before vacation. If even I can use it, so can you! And...
Yes, I do coordinate all our outfits, as some of you noticed!:rolleyes1 The kids are still young enough not to care or notice, and Brandon goes with the flow. And yes, Brynn's earmuffs she uses to block out sensory information (she has high-functioning Autism and Dystonia, if you haven't been following my TR and didn't know) are red and black for Disney colors. I know, I'm an over-planning Disney addict!!::yes::

Seriously, guys, you are overwhelming me! You are all so amazing and complimentary, and you have made me all misty-eyed several times today! I really appreciate you watching this labor of love, and I am so happy to share it with people who I know understand what WDW is all about--MAGIC:wizard:!

THANK YOU!!!:love:

AHH! I can't believe you just commented on our little video; you are my kids' hero! I cannot wait to tell them that a celebrity saw their video :thumbsup2!

My kids don't even listen to the radio, but they know all the songs from your videos. Just yesterday, Julia was going through the grocery store with me singing loudly, "Now get your hands up, ooooh ooooooooohh." Hand motions and all. They chose Pirate's League this year because they saw Lizzie do it, and next year they want to fight Darth Vader like Andy. I'm telling you, they're obsessed! Probably a thousand of your views came from my household!

Thanks for some great videos and inspiration :).
