My Video Tribute to Scarlett O'Hara

I have had Windows Movie Maker on this PC ever since I bought it six years ago, but I had never used it. This weekend I finally decided to make a video using it. A lot of my friends have made tribute videos of their favourite actors and actresses, so I thought I should join in on the fun. Of course, I then decided it would not be a tribute to an actress so much as a famous movie character--Scarlett O'Hara. I then decided that rather than going with some standard, I would go with power pop band's remake of The Monkees' "She." My reasoning is that if Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara had lived in the 1960's instead of the 1860's, he probably would have identified the song with her!

So here it is, my video directorial debut (at least using a PC--I have made videos with a camera)....

LOVELY VIDEO!

And really, that's an inspired song choice! It fits the character perfectly! :-D

Cool video! :-P

Random question-what is the font you used for the title at the beginning?

Millie, I have often wondered if Boyce and Hart didn't write "She" after watching Gone with the Wind a few times! The song does seem to suit Scarlett. I used Love Candy's version because it seems to be the only one NOT on YouTube!

Niamhy, the font at the beginning is called "Miss Scarlett" and is meant to duplicate the font used in Gone with the Wind's credit sequence. I got it at WindowFonts.

Wonderful! Great job with your first video tribute. I need to learn how to make these! I'm clueless.

And excellent choice in song.

Thanks, Quelle! You'll have to try Windows Movie Maker. It doesn't have the nuances of a REAL film editor, but it is easy to use!
