I generally don't edit with live-action shows or movies, but I couldn't help it. I really have wanted to for some time, I just never got around to it. But it's a tradition in my family, at least for my parents and I, to watch the movie "Elf" sometime around Christmas. It's my personal favourite holiday film, I just love everything about it. It's the perfect blend of comedy and drama, and the acting is pretty fantastic.
I realize that Elf is mostly a comedy, but it has an extremely dramatic side to it, and it's quite touching.

"Have yourself a merry little Christmas" is my favourite song. I just love the way it sounds and feels when you hear it, so I was searching for a good version to use for this video, and found this rendition. I know it doesn't really sound like the original, but it has an amazing feel to it.

I was messing around with the colouring effects for this, and I kind of fell in love with the product. The texture added a different touch to it, and it might be a bit over done, but whatever.

There are a few glitches here and there, but I got tired to rendering and re-rendering, so I'm sticking with this final product.

The voice overs were fun to work with, each of those lines are pretty amazing. I added subtitles because at a few points it can be hard to hear what they're saying. :/ But I like the way they look. I probably should have made the text smaller, but again, rendering, re-rendering, yada yada. Beware, the sound can get a bit loud at times, as well.

So, MERRY CHRISTMAS! I have yet to make a Christmas video, but I finally got around to it, and I love it! I may or may not make another one, but I will be working with more live action shows and films in the future. If you have any suggestions, or tips, or criticism, please do tell me. :)
