    I'm getting reports that the video is being blocked in some countries. If it's blocked in yours, try this link instead:

    Thanks, Lucia! The girls loved it and especially liked the "premiere" party we had the other night, complete with red carpet, programs and movie poster.

    Really great acting now and then. Congratulate those two actors (the director isn't too bad either, of course

    One for the moment, perhaps sequels Two and Three later, unless one of the girls gets to be a Governor before that...)

    Excellent job Bob!! You've given me something to strive for.


    As an aside, I opened this thread expecting to see a news article. Then your first post was about it being blocked in certain countries which in turn triggered my conspiracy alarm.

    Thank you for the nice comments! I will pass on the positive feedback to my little actresses!


    I guess I am going to have to start using public domain music (or no music at all) in my videos if I want them on YouTube. I understand it's the law but it's kind of a shame it's affecting my harmless little movies.

    Finally had a chance to watch the video. Being 20 min long, I skimmed along, to catch the high points :)


    That was really cute, though it lacked some of the wrenching pathos of the car-chase movie ;)


    I wished you'd done a video of the premiere party, to show too. That would have been fun to see a bit of.

    Great work Bob. I have 5yo twins and I think they would enjoy it as well. What editing SW do you use?

    Sorry so late in getting back to you on this. I used PowerDirector 8. It's very easy to use yet pretty powerful too, yet not too expensive (I got mine for $58).


    The "Actual CMU Professor" is me! I wanted to use an actual CMU professor for that scene (as you can see, there are several scenes shot at the CMU campus) but I couldn't find anyone willing to do it. So, I put on a lab coat, wig, and glasses and became the "actual" professor.

    Thanks for watching!
