So, I needed practice editing videos on YouTube and thought this could be a helpful skill to learn especially if I want to make tutorial videos.
I found this how to edit video, video after finding others that I did not like,lol. It helped me a lot personally. I would not have even been able to practice at all without it,lol.
So my personal go at it. Warning- this is very silly, if you do not have a hyperactive sense of humor and are offended at silly things do not watch clip below and move on,lol.
I decided to use footage from my husband and our close friend, Michael, playing a Princess memory game and edit it. I condensed 19 minutes of footage down to 4 minutes and 15 seconds.
Yes that’s right! Two Men, One Princess Game, In the Name of Science! You will see it said that it is a hard game,lol. Appropriately made for children 3 years of age? You decide,lol.
This video can also help you understand and get a feel for the milieu that is my household. You may hear me laughing a little bit, lol.
As you will see I still need practice for transitioning and I want to learn how to put in captions and writing as Happy Cabby so skillfully does with his YouTube videos. I also need to make sure I record holding the Ipod differently,lol. This has been hilarious practice,lol.
Here is what this video is about.
Michael Torres wants to scientifically test if his memory has improved by playing my 4 year old daughter’s, Princess Memory Game. John Gordon humors this endeavor and their respective memories go head to head. Witness the intensity and the drama that can ensue when one attempts to play a seemingly harmless children’s game.
On a side note, when I was talking about the bias we just learned that day in the video as I was making fun, I was talking about the Self Serving Bias, which is a psychological phenom where people naturally think they are terrific and because they are terrific the good things that happen to them are due to their terrific-ness; the bad things are due to accident and misfortune. If you made an A on your college paper it is because you are smart, if you made an F it is because the professor is too hard on you or the situation was against you. I made an A, He/She gave me an F. It is related to the Lake Wobegon Effect where people see themselves as above average. People often see themselves as above average drivers, or kissers, etc. It stems from the motivation to feel good about yourself.
We all three learned this from watching a Paul Bloom psychology lecture earlier that day.
