Video Essay

My wife always laughs at me when My Girl comes on TV. Yes, I am a man, and yes I cry at this sappy movie. I can't help it. To me there is something powerful about the way they frame a story of a girl that can't understand death until her best friend dies. Anyway, it's the perfect movie for me to talk a bit about, so here it is. Technical Notes: I used iMovie with the Voiceover option to do this, but I'm not sure how much I liked that because I felt it made everything very quiet, even when I wasn't talking. It does make it stupid easy, however, to overlay voice on a video track.
