Today I present the Atkinson family’s 2010 Christmas card!
Handwritten cards? So last century. Photo cards ordered and sent from Shutterfly? So last decade. E-cards? Not good enough. This year I decided to create a big project for myself and it turned out pretty weird. Good and weird and funny (I hope).
I created the video above with
- the camera in my android phone,
- drawings in GIMP by the kids,
- a poem I found on Project Gutenberg,
- audacity to record the reading,
- music from an old 78 RPM record on archive.org,
- Kdenlive to author the video, and
- Ubuntu Linux (of course).
Hurrah! The days are getting longer! The sun will be brighter! May your life be filled with peace and joy!
