Slideshow for Mrs. Princehorn!
Here's the bad news: I filmed the wonderful songfest in the auditorium yesterday (Wednesday morning), which I did with the Lower School video camera, which I hadn't used before. It was fun to do and I think I had a pretty interesting film when the program was over and I turned off the camera. Bringing it back into my computer lab to edit, I opened the camera before finalizing the disk. Can you say "Poof?"
This is of course just another incident in a longstanding tradition of intentional technology goof-ups designed to demonstrate that "even Mr. Merrick" makes mistakes. Well, sort of.
Here's the good news. Talented photographer and Yearbook Manager/Editor Genie Tanner spent the whole hour taking pictures and she shared them with me. In penance, I spent a couple hours putting them all into Microsoft PhotoStory (a free download add-on to Windows Media Player), then some more time adding some music from the show.
It's online, and you can view it with Windows Media Player (it's a .wmv file) or any compatible program. I am working on a Quicktime version, so check back for that! I hope it does justice to the love everyone in the room shared for Mrs. Princehorn, that morning and every day.
Have a marvelous holiday, all, and we'll see you next year!
