The Iraq Vigil and My Video Education

The Vigil to end the Iraq War last Sunday filled the church’s pews and rows of folding chairs at the back. We turned people away at the door.  Television stations 2, 4, 7, 11, and 14 sent reporters and cameras.  It was a good public cry for a change in policy.

I used the occasion to dust of my old (2000) DV camera and take some shots.  Then I downloaded a trial of Ulead video editing software to produce the clip below.  It was pretty straight forward.

Most of the clip is of my minister, Rev. Greg Stewart, setting the tone for the day. Like Barack Obama, I don’t agree with my minister on what he says… but I am glad he’s standing up and saying what is in his heart.  Fortunately, Rev. Stewart is no rev. Jeremiah Wright!

And, if anyone knows another PC-based, low-end (around $100) video editor, please let me know.
