Help- How to make a video similar to Disney Wonder singing video

Ok need the help of all my tech savy DIS family. So have any of you seen the Disney Wonder singing video where the crew is lip syncing and the song is over laying their video?? I will post a link.

Anyhow I thought this would make a great memory for my girls to do onboard the Magic with friends but I need to have ideas of what program I can use and how to piece the clips together??? HELP!!

I've wanted to do that too, but non of my family wants to do it, lol.
-A few tips would be to use a tripod for your camera so that it's not shaking all over the place, a still camera looks more professional.
-I would also suggest, for each location you want to use for your video, do the whole song in each place, or at least add some of the song before and after each "part" you are looking to get, that way you know that there will be no gaps in between parts.
-I can't help with the editing part, I could probably figure it out on my own, but would be terrible at trying to explain it, lol! Any chance that you know someone computer savy at home that could help out with that part if your not sure of the process?

Have fun!

Don't know how old your kids are, but most over 10 seem to know how to do this! Rent a teen to put the video together for you--easier than struggling thru it yourself. They make it look easy.

Re the above--the song track is usually added after the fact during the editing.

Thanks for both your help... I probably could figure it out too but I was looking for a program that made it easy Oddly enough my 12 yr old has a mac air through school and says she can do it. I sure hope so...I think it would make a great video especially since we are surprising them that they are all going together. Our fifth DCL cruise and our friends second but our first together....If you her kids screaming going crazy on Dec 22nd at 8pm..well that's our 5 kids , get your ear plugs ready!!

Im sure your 12 year old can do this on the Mac with the iMovie Application. My guy has been doing it since he was 9. A few pointers:

When shooting the video, you will need an audio source (iPod with speakers, etc) so that the lip synch is correct. You don't use the audio from the video you shoot as a prior poster mentioned, but you need to play it so people can dance and Lip synch to the music.

Most of the work in this is in the planning stages. The editing takes a little bit of time to get it exact. The actual shooting doesn't take long compared to those two tasks.

Good luck. Sounds like fun. And picking a short song is always a good idea

I don't know how to do this, but I'd practice it at home before doing it on the ship. That way, you can work through any glitches before it really counts.

This may be something to watch when considering doing a video. This is my favourite!

there's an app called video star--it is totally brilliant.

you have to have the song you want to use loaded on your device (iPads work great)

all ambient noise is filtered out in final video so "director" can give directions

there all all sorts of special effects you can use too.

check it out!

that's what impressed me about the wonder video, there was no one around! Must have been 3 am.

Enjoy video star folks--I would have died and gone to heaven with that as a tween!
