Hey guys sorry I could not post earlier or visit your blogs sooner than I’d like too, but this Friday I made a decision:
I’m getting back to vidding again! 😀
Don’t worry it won’t affect my blogging schedule as I’ve found back time. How? Don’t ask, I just don’t know. Just that, one day I wake up and I tell myself: I have time for vidding after all.
What is Vidding?
Vidding is a type of video editing, just that instead of making your own footage with your camera and doing a movie with it, you take already existing movies and TV series as your footage and you cut and adapt it to a song/melody. Just like my latest video:
Yep this was my main hobby before blogging came into my life. And now I believe I can both blog and vid 🙂 As most of you already know, I blog with about 2-3 days of interval and concerning vidding, I do it every Friday night, the process of making the video, I mean. About uploading it to Youtube… well it might depend. I usually post a video every fortnight or if I’m really lucky, every week.

Vidding is indeed addictive and deprives you of sleep haha. But sometimes I believe it is worth it. Because it’s fun. And I love it! Not as much as I love writing, but it’s close.
What should I do if I want to start vidding too?
Well the first thing I would suggest is: go on Youtube, create an account and watch as much as similar videos as linked above. WATCH before you attempt to do anything. Just watch, observe and enjoy 🙂
Then you’ll have to choose a song and a movie/series to go along with. I mainly vid Merlin BBC series but if inspiration gets me I might choose other medias. For the music, just choose your favourite.
And of course, you need a movie maker. The first time I vidded, I used Windows Movie Maker, which sucks, but it’s easy to understand for a beginner and especially if you’re doing it for the first time, I recommend using the movie maker your computer already has as default. For Mac it’s iMovie. If after some videos you realise that you really love vidding, then you can go for professional products like Sony Vegas Pro (which is the one I currently use). Do some research and find the program that will suit you the best.
Now you’re ready to go!
I have been vidding a lot since April 2010 but I stopped at the beginning of this year because of school and… my passion for writing 😛 But I guess I couldn’t resist… ^^ a hobby remains a hobby. If I hadn’t stopped vidding it would have been 2 years of experience in this field! Wow.
I’m going to catch up on blogging now.
An Evil Nymph.
