8 Tips for Making Great Home Movies

I love making videos. Some of my favorites are the ones I do with Caroline — like this quirky little number┬áthat we called Valentine’s Day: According to the Osbornes. In it, I may or may not have criticized her driving. It’s so hard for me to recall petty little details such as that.

Anyway, two big developments on the video front — first, starting soon, I’ll be doing them for hire and embedding them on another site. These efforts will also be uploaded to a YouTube channel, but not my own — instead, one belonging to a brand name we all know and love. But second, and equally as exciting — I get to do them with Caroline which means these videos will showcase that feisty, banter thing we do. You know, kinda like Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser albeit with a southern twist.

More on that soon, but for now, I wanted point you to a post I just wrote for Babble that you might find useful if you’re (a) interested in making home movies or (b) interested in making even better home movies than you’re already making. If that sounds like you, click on THIS LINK to read 8 Tips for Making Great Home Movies.

Instant Classic: Triplets Learn to Ride a Bike [30 second Video]

So two things. First, I caught a magic moment on video and have uploaded it to YouTube and embedded it below. And though the picture above would suggest that it’s a video of Kirby, it’s actually a video of my fearless little Sammy. And it’s only 30 seconds, so wear it out.

But second, it’s a snippet from a longer video (3 minutes) I made for Sony over at Babble. It’s about how a feature of their Handycam actually helped me teach my trio how to ride their bikes.

I’ve long used the Sony Handycam for all my home movies and their newest model is top flight. If you’d like to win one, go over to my Babble piece and watch the video (or don’t, but you should) then leave a comment detailing your favorite video and you’ll be entered to win. Sound good?

But not before you watch this. You’ll be so happy you did — it’s an instant classic:
