A new trailer for the Skipper's Child!
With just days left till the votes for the People's Book Prize close, I have finally managed to put together a short trailer for the Skipper's Child. A bit late, I know, but there's still the final voting to do, so it might help!
It's taken me far too long to do as I struggle with the new film editing programme I have. I just don't understand how it works and nearly chucked my poor undeserving laptop into the drink. The thing is, the old programme I had was much more user friendly to someone who is familiar with real film editing. I used to help to with editing for a film company in my former life. But the new iMovie is designed for people with gadgets (iPads and the like) that I don't have.
In particular, I have problems adding music to movies now, so luckily for me, Koos came to the rescue and added it on his computer. Even better, the music is his own composition, so I am very happy about that.
Nevertheless, there's still a disappointment in that YouTube has compressed the film so much, the music is a bit out of sync with video now. We will see if we can correct it, but for now, here it is!
UPDATE: Here is a much better version! Thanks again to Koos for fixing the sync (and the sink) for me today :-)
