Just last week, a colleague of mine left us. Three days before his scheduled last day, one of his closest friends approached me asking for help to make a farewell presentation. I was hesitant at first because I could not think of a concept/theme/etc and I only had a few days (2!!!) to plan the whole thing.
Fortunately, another colleague thought of using one of his favorite songs and turning it into a music video. For some reason, I felt it doable and decided to give it a go. Total time used to collect each short clip took about a full shift. We walked around the hotel, accosting people, pushing them to act/sing/lip sync. It was tiring, but fun!
The video editing was another story. While others were too busy to be videoed, I started compiling and correlating the clips to the song. Crazy work – took me a scattered 6 hours, for a novice Movie Maker user!
I’m proud of the results, though! The people I work with are great! Here’s the complete product:

And… just to plug, the first vid I “choreographed.”
