My apologies for the extended absence, but I took a vacation a couple weeks ago which kind of set me back. Not to mention, we just started a new semester at school and I've been busy working on putting together a class wiki. Anyway, I'm back now (well at least part-time) and will try and post any new findings every so often until I get settled once again.
In the meantime, below is a short film I made using Photostory highlighting portions of my recent trip to Makkah and Madinah in Saudi Arabia (home of the two holy sanctuaries in Islam).
This was actually the first time I've played with the software and found it to be fairly simple to use. One downside I found though is that it is kind of limited on it's feature set (esp. with audio editing). Anyway, I think it's a good tool starter tool for those creating videos for the first time.
Please feel free to leave comments letting me know what you think either of my video or your personal thoughts/opinions and experiences using Photostory.
