At Silent Knight Farms

At Silent Knight Farms

(Click on the link for the treat)

I'm still all caught up in Animoto videos. Who said I'm compulsive? Little old me? Nah!

Note, in case you watch this one: Before hitting the play button, check in the lower left hand corner for the buttons that will allow you to switch to high resolution and full screen.

I upgraded for longer videos, bought a high resolution credit, and put this one together, yesterday, for a dear friend who began as a client many years ago. This video thing could develop into a nasty habit.


  1. Anita, you've been busy. I know these things can take a lot of time and effort to put together. This one is beautiful and I've watched it several times. I like the music as well. I wouldn't consider it a nasty habit if it provides joy and beauty for both you and others.

  2. Earl - Thanks a million for the feedback. I am delighted that you have enjoyed this one. That makes all the work worthwhile. I can't wait to do more! I hope that I have learned some tricks and the construction from now on will go a little faster.

    Animoto is pretty amazing. All those special effects are not my doing. I provide the text and images, arrange those elements, spotlight a few images for a change of pace, sort through all the music, pick one and click "create". Voila. The magic begins. Once I learned the steps, quirks, and made a dozen or so blunders, it doesn't seem so overwhelming now.

    It's only a "nasty" habit in that I am not getting much of anything else done. Oops.

  3. Well, hopefully you got your taxes done! I'd rather have this diversion, though, rather than those nasty taxes. Beautiful images, Anita.

  4. Paul - Somehow, I had missed this comment. Maybe it's because you mentioned taxes? Yikes. We got really close, but ended up paying the bill and taking an extension. I hate facing more or it, but we are close to the end now.

    Thank you for your comment on the photos.
