I’ve been “making videos” pretty much since I discovered how to do it about 10 years ago. Footprints, Hallelujah is one of the first I ever made and spent hours editing. I was so pleased with the result and discovered I’d found a new hobby. What I didn’t realise is that I would lose days on end to this new hobby.
At the time one of my most listened to songs was “Hallelujah” by Rufus Wainwright. I didn’t really like it at first but it really grew on me. I can’t remember why I decided to make the video but when I did I wanted to marry it up with my favourite poem Footprints.
So, I thought how can I get the words on screen as well, bearing in mind this was long before all the lyric videos we see on YouTube today. Then it came to me – Star Wars! I hate Star Wars but I always liked the intro…in a galaxy far, far away or something. It then took me a long time to find a clip of video to use for the piano – I was still quite new to googling and borrowing other peoples stuff 🙂 and it took even longer to put all the words and music together. I’m pretty sure I was late for work the next day.
I’m really proud of the finished article. I wouldn’t say I’m really religious or anything but I believe in something and I believe in all the words in the video and from the song. So, I hope you like it and please comment letting me know what you think. If you can’t do listening and reading at the same time don’t watch.
