Mood lighting

Bad ideas, Videos

I’m pretty sure that the only members of my family who still look at our website on a regular basis are my mom & my sister (Hi guys). So I’m going to post a little video that is really meant for the Sommerer Family Website (sorry about stealing your family motto, Hofmans).

My Aunt Naomi sent me a bunch of her old home movies, and I edited them down to some clips that would be of interest to our extended family (though I actually think that more than what I included would be interesting to them). Since I’m doing these home movie edits quickly, I wait until I’m done before I add the music (otherwise I obsess over matching the beat and such). This time I decided that the clips could be a little more dramatic.

I think Brad said something about doing this, but I can’t remember exactly what he said. I’ll change the soundtrack before I share it with the family. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Hehe… I told you about doing that for music class with Edward Scissorhands. A really touching scene can be really sinister if you change the music.

    The beginning of your movie made me thing of “Our Gang”, suggesting music from here: “Good Old Days” is the one I know so well.

    That was grand….can you pull a picture from the group photo that we could post with who is in it?

    It doesn’t matter the quality…just to put it up and see how much all the young people looked like the young people then.
    I like Brad’s music choice…I think it would go nice!

    Hahaha! I LOVED that music! It’s perfect for the creepy homemade wagon vehicle, followed by the ‘gardeners’… they look just like the Klopeks. I’m betting your family has a good sense of humor…I say keep this music.

    But if you must change it, I think Brad’s suggestion is perfect! Or maybe:

    I vote for Brad’s “Our Gang’s” “Good Old Day’s”!!!!!
