Hall of Shame Volume 2: Video Fail

It’s time. After several months, I bring you the second installment of

CourtCouldMakeThat: Hall of Shame

Oddly enough, this is also my second video post.

This is not really a craft, but it is something I made…and it is quite a failure.  I once made a video with my brother on his Mac and iMovie made it seem so cool and easy. “I can do that,” I thought.  Then I got a new camera, and it takes videos! Videos, I tell you! I hastened to film the closest living being, who happened to be…my cat. Yes, I made a cat video. Just like thousands of other internet users.  Let me break it down for you.

Anatomy of a Good Cat Video:
-          The cat is cute and also visible
-          The cat is doing something interesting or hilarious
-          The video is appropriately short
-          The music/other audio is appropriate to the adorable cat situation at hand

I have scored my own cat video with a 0.5 out of a possible 4 points. Yes, POINT FIVE, because while my cat is cute, she is invisible for most of the video, being covered with a sheet (of her own volition).  She is not doing something interesting, or hilarious, unless moving around under a sheet is funny, which I guess at the time, I thought was funny. It’s not. The video is way too long, I’m bored just talking about it, and for a truly inexplicable reason I chose “I Know What I Know” by Paul Simon as the music.

Also, I do not have a Mac. I have a PC…with Windows Movie Maker? I think that is what I used.  It was hard to use, and I don’t even know how that “The End” got on there. Whatever.

So basically, my cinematic experience was a failure, and I share it with you because...well..I don’t know.  Catharsis? 
I'm just doing my part to add one more cat video to the internet. What are you doing?

  1. The following comment is not meant to bring any more shame to you; it is but a fact. When I saw this video, I laughed so hard that I disturbed more than a few people in the office.
