I was just thinking about this for some reason. That it would be easy to put on a DVD of a film you love and if you have a computer nearby, you could speak into your mic and then you would have an audio file of your own commentary. Has anyone here ever done it?

Edit: I just noticed that I used horrible wording as the title of this thread. Can a Mod change it to "Has Anyone Ever Recorded their own Commentary?"

I seem to recall that Roger Ebert wrote a column about this idea a while back for YIL magazine, and it spawned a website called www.dvdtracks.com

Unfortunately, the article has vanished. YIL no longer exists.

I don't see the point, unless you're looking to resell to someone else. With commentaries I'm looking to listen to someone else's insight on the film, not my own.

Once, I experimented with the narration function on Windows Movie Maker by recording a commentary for a short film I made (The Tromboninator, a spoof of the Terminator movies).

It's difficult, though... The first time I tried, I couldn't keep up (especially since it's only 12 min. long). Then, I had a short list of things to cover... that kept me from doing a Mel Brooks by stopping mid-sentence and going onto the next thought.

Doesn't the Spider-Man DVD have some sort of special feature like that as a DVD-ROM extra feature?

I see that as a cool idea if you want share you opinions with the world but how many would one person listen to?
