Getting a new camera for Christmas? Taking lots of pictures and videos?
Turn your photos into a video podcast for your family and friends. Several programs exist on the market but if you use Windows, you should already have Windows Movie Maker installed on your computer.
Muvee is an affordable, easy-to-use program perfect for both video and photo podcasts.
We’ll be discussing these programs more at length in 2008. But since it’s the holidays, here’s a special Christmas Podcast called “The Christmas Piano Tree,” my one-act play that was produced in Malibu at the Malibu Stage Company Theatre. I filmed the play during a performance, then I shot frames from the play off my TV screen using my digital camera; next, I recorded an audio track with my voiceover (I acted as the narrator and the two female characters in the play) and sweetened it with music.
The Christmas Piano Tree is based on my family tradition of decorating our old upright piano like a Christmas tree.
