Skill Level Beginner
Before we dig in and look at some preferences and actually start cutting our vacation highlights reel, let's take a look at a rough cut of the final project. (video playing) Narrator: Day 4 of our vacation. My razor is still missing.
We are going to head over to Catalina to see what happens on the island. I hear there is good snuba and even a zip line. (video playing) Narrator: Well it's early morning. The kids haven't woken up yet.
But it's a big day. We are going to go zip-lining and then maybe some snuba, and some swimming. My biggest hope; finding the razor, and shaving. The mystery deepens. (video playing) Narrator: Well I discovered the razor. It was in the kids' bathroom.
The mystery is only getting deeper. (video playing) Narrator: So Ian, why do you have a Band-Aid on your cheek? Ian: I was practice shaving and I didn't ask for you to help -- Daniel turn that off -- so I cut myself, but I did do shaving cream so I don't know how I cut myself.
Daniel: Why did he shave? He doesn't have anything on his face. Well as you can see, with the vacation video, the main point is to have some fun and keep it relatively short. This was a little less than three minutes long and that's about as long as you want to make anybody watch your vacation highlight reel. Remember, you can do two, three, or four highlight reels to encompass your entire vacation. Small bites are best.
