Chris has been working it on YouTube! This whole process has been kind of a delayed reaction and there are many reasons why.
Fred & Jennifer are valued collectors of mine that found me & my art through eBay several years ago. Fred & Jen own quite a few of my Halloween art pieces. They commissioned me in 2007 to do some art for their yearly themed haunted house display. I did six large Halloween circus themed illustrations and sent them the originals. Fred took the high resolution scans and had the images enlarged to frame inside the circus tent. He wanted the pieces to have a vintage cartoon / sideshow banner feel. Fred promised to send me a video of the display which I received a year later (2008), this past Halloween. Fred suggested me putting the video on my website...I was like, "sounds great once I figure out how the heck to do it!" Hehe '-)
This was a project! They sent me the brief video on old school VHS tape...hmmm. SO I had to use a DVD recorder to transfer the video from VHS to DVD. Then I had to figure out how to rip the DVD video into my Mac computer...I found a great free shareware program to do this. Next I had to import the ripped DVD video into iMovie to add the titles and optimize. The next step was compressing & encoding the video/sound for web...OY!!! Lastly uploading the video into YouTube last night.
It was worth it though & hope you will enjoy it. Make sure you turn off my blog music first. Fred & Jen went all out, & had GREAT creepy music to go with for added ambiance.
Thanks again Fred & Jen for this opportunity and what a FUN visual gift to add to my artist portfolio & website!
Update: My website has now been updated with the new video!
