Countdown to Christmas

I consider November 1 to be the start of the holidays. Christmas is not only my favorite day but my favorite time of year. I get so caught up in buying gifts and spending all my time with the people closest to me. After all the running around that comes along with preparing for Christmas day, it’s good to unwind at the end of the day, cuddle up with your honey, and watch a good Christmas movie.

This assignment (4 stars) was a fun way to get into the Christmas Spirit! It required me to pick 25 Christmas movies and make a countdown using clips from these movies. Although it became harder and harder to think of more movies, I managed to pull together clips from 25 different movies and put them all together in this video.


How I Did It:

I found clips for all the movies on YouTube (links to the clips can be found in the list of movies used).  I then individually uploaded the clips to Windows Movie Maker and edited them down to short snippets of the movie clip. My goal was to have the entire video be 5 minutes or shorter, but I was unsuccessful and the final video was 6 minutes long, which isn’t too far off from my goal. Once I had the clips in order I went through and added the number and title of the movie in the upper left corner. The final step was to save the movie to my desktop and to upload it to YouTube.
