"Mom, I want to make a music video," my nine-year-old daughter announced.
"Okay. How are you going to do that?" I asked.
"Hmmm. It sounds like a Klutz project."
For those of you who don't know, Klutz is a company that makes books for kids that shows them how to do all sorts of things, from playing Cats Cradle string games to making music videos.
I found a Klutz book on how to make music videos.
We put up a green screen and started shooting the video. My daughter and her friend were really rocking.
Then the fun began. I had to figure out how to use the software to change the background for the video. I tried a bizillion different ways, but nothing seemed to work. I was getting pretty frustrated.
Then I discoved the directions. Ahhh. Enlightenment.
Now I'm a pro at changing backgrounds and adding all kinds of special effects.
Who knows, maybe someday I'll make my own music video!
