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?
