A different type of blog this week. I’ve entered a Center Parcs competition to produce a 1 minute video showing how our family enjoy the great outdoors. I’m hoping to win a break at Center Parcs, and thought I’d share my video as I’ve had great fun making it, even if it’s not a winning entry.
The subject choice was easy. We live near an off-road Sustrans cycle route, and often bike along it at the weekends. At the end is a playground which the kids love. If we cycle a little further there’s a cafe which I love!
On to the hard part….. I’ve only ever taken a couple of clips with the video functionality on my phone before, and I’ve never done any video editing. It’s taken me a good week to get to grips with the editing, adding the video to a sharing site and getting the link working on my blog. I gave up on YouTube, as although the rest of the world are able to upload videos of dancing cats I don’t appear to use the right file format, aargh!
I know it’s not perfect, as some of the quality has been lost in the upload and the muzak is a little irritating after you’ve watched it for the 10th time, but without further ado I hope you enjoy my entry for the Center Parcs challenge.
If we do win we don’t really mind which village we visit, although Whinfell is quite a drive from us, so we’d prefer one a little closer!
