Here are a couple of videos we made:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJE7bvfVBg8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pjOH...feature=relmfu

Made with iMovie on a macbook pro. Tips-
1. Have a plan going in. Write the lyrics out and have an idea for each line of the song.
2. Know the song inside and out.
3. Remember #1 is only a plan. Take every opportunity to film lines whenever and wherever possible.
4. We never had success with using an ipod to sync with. It takes too much time to get ready and a lot of times you only have a couple of seconds to get the shot.
5. Film the entire song at least once somewhere so you have some backup footage to use in case you forget to shoot something or a shot doesn't work.
6. Don't be afraid to have several takes of the same line. You never know what is going to work in editing.
7. Don't underestimate the importance of "B" footage that doesn't include lip syncing. Some of the best footage will have nothing to do with your song. Get plenty of footage of your family dancing around a being Goofy
8. Characters will participate if you ask them and if it is something quick.
9. Don't let your video control your vacation. You are there to have fun not stress over a movie. Have fun! Have fun! Have fun!

That's the best I can offer you. Good luck and have fun!

So excited to do this...downloading video star now on my dd's iPhone...we will play around with it over xmas break once they know they are going. Can't wait!!!
I don't think its a right to annoy people with your kids jumping over furniture and railings...

When did I say I was gonna have my kids on furniture and railings?? Apparently you must see that alot to think that is how people behave, however my family is civilized and we don't jump on furniture!! If this is such a pain to you, you shouldn't cruise in Feb when I am!

I have had the pleasure to cruise with this family and the girls are some of the best behaved kids I have ever met. I cannot imagine for them to do anything knowingly that would upset or annoy other people.

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

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

check it out!
Thank you so much for posting this! My daughters had such fun last night with this app!

I saw someone used Final Cut pro for editing which might be an Mac program...any normal PC program anyone knows? I think I can use the Mac program on my DD's mac air from school but not sure the school will let me download onto the computer for my editing and then delete when I am done.
