One more video for the Holiday Season...

What can you do with Two awesome groups that are 7 miles apart, a little Christmas cheer, one camera and a computer with iMovie?

Each year there is a tradition at the Fairfield Elementary Schools of an All-School Carol Sing the last day before break. This year I decided to take video at both Libertyville and Washington Elementary's sing-a-longs (Thanks Mrs. Schloss for your camera)and try to increase my tech knowledge and skills. I sat down with iMovie this morning and merged the two groups to produce this short video. I didn't use one audio track and put the video over the top. Instead, each video clip carries its own audio track. When you see the Libertyville students, you hear their own voices. When you see the Washington students, you actually hear their own voices. Due to the use of the same accompaniment at both places, I was able to mesh the two videos together almost seamlessly.

I am very proud of the end product and hope that you enjoy this taste of Christmas Joy from Washington and Libertyville Elementary Schools as they sing virtually "together" Santa Claus is Coming To Town.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
