Cruise movie is done -- finally!

I've finally completed the movie of our February cruise and have posted it here.  If you're running Internet Explorer, the page will open with a Media Player plug-in so you can watch on-screen, but if you're running any other browser, you'll need to download the movie from one of the links I've included and watch off line.  This is not my intention, but I can't figure out the code to make it run in anything else yet (I'm going to head across the street to my friendly web-guru Steve for help).  For right now, open the page in IE if you can.  The movie is 45 minutes long but I've tried to make it interesting enough so that it's not (too much) like watching someone's home movies of their vacation.  I also included links so you can download and view the movie in smaller bites if you prefer.  So make some popcorn and have a look.  Would love to hear comments -- but only good ones!

Added: It should work in IE, FF, and Chrome now if you have a current ActiveX plug-in.

Sneak-peek of cruise movie

I've been working on our cruise movie and have completed the first section.  Got a lot to do yet, so let me know what you think.  Won't load the YT video on Blogger so I included the video link.

Movie coming along

I've been working on the movie from our cruise when I get time and it's coming along;  it's at 9 minutes and we're just sailing out of San Juan, so I'll probably need to make some strategic edits prior to publishing.  Still need to get the actual cruise in with beaches, parties, catamarans and such.  This cruise was our time to reconnect and since we listened to Sinatra music on our balcony, I'm including some in the movie -- wonder if YouTube will let me post it without paying licensing fees? Sue mailed me a card this week, and ended it by saying that we need to start thinking about where we'll go next -- that gives me something to hope for.

I figure the movie should be done in another week or so, and then I'll get back to one I started, focusing specifically on Caribbean Princess.  Maybe Princess Cruises will like that one?
