Part of my job as the “social media guru” at Shady Side (and I use the term “guru” lightly) is to explore the use of video in our social media messaging. I recently grabbed our Flip Camera and went to the Hillman Center for Performing Arts’ show Magic of the Night (the Hillman Center is on the SSA Senior School campus and has some great family-friendly shows).
I got video of kids, students, teachers and staff saying Boo (and a few cackles) to the camera and edited it together. After a Twitter inquiry I found the site JewelBeat where I was able to download a royalty-free song for 99 cents. It took about 2 hours to edit together.
It turned out to be a quick way to engage the audience at the show and pull together a cute video. Enjoy!
