This is the first of several "Commercials" I am making to run at church to recruit people for puppet voices. The background is done in Paint and the puppet is one I made. My son is the puppeteer and the voice. I'm still experimenting with green screen so have lighting issues to work out.
Give me your thoughts.

Never Mind. It worked. I just didn't give it time to process. My bad.

I fixed it. You simply put the id number between the youtube BBcode tags. You can click on Modify of the post to see what I mean. Smiley  I am going to try and make a change to this so that folks can simply past the url to the video page and have it show up but that well be a bit down the road.

I like the background (great work with the green background edition). The way the puppet move (For my concept) is really professional.

Thanks for share (Something else to add to my learning)

PS: I'm wondering, how do I do to editing with greenbackground?

You need to have greenscreen editing capabilities on your video editing software. I use Pinnacle Ultimate 12. I like the software, but am still learning how to do the greenscreen. These are the first two videos I've done with GS, and am finding that the second one has a lot of movement in the antenae, so I may have to limit what I do with that puppet. I'll be posting the second video shortly. I have two more that I'm working on as well, one based on Mission Impossible and the other on Get Smart. But those are a bit more involved, as I am doing voiceovers as well as several different shots that I'm combining.

I finished editing the second video. Does the movement of the antenae distract too much from the video?

I do find the erratic movement of the antennas distracting.  He's a cute puppet, and live his antennas are probably fine but in the video they really make my eyes go squirilly.  If I watched for too long I might even get a headache.  If you could stiffen up the antenna it would slow the bounce and they would probably be ok.

Are the antenae made from springs? It would be neat if you could contol them with some type of pull device from inside the head that would pull them close to the head and release them when the puppet seems excited. It is a bit destracting.................. but otherwise a great job on the video. Where will you be sharing this video? I know some Churches have the big screens and offer announcements and things like short videos before Church service starts.

The antenae are made from pipe cleaners. I will have to stiffen them for future videos. I will be showing the videos on the big screen before service starts. I really didn't want to have to redo the Sunny video, but if the antenae are causing a problem I'll redo it and see what happens. thanks for the feedback.

I love the idea of advertising at church for puppet help with a video!  Your green screen worked great!

Here is the third video, it isn't exactly how I wanted, but couldn't figure out how to self destruct the computer easily. I didn't want to have to do heavy duty visual effects, so eliminated the smoking disk altogether. So give me some feedback please.

I like this one Sue....................... I think you got it. Simple right to the point. If this don't bring voices back to the puppets then i don't know what will. I love this type creativity in church. How exciting !
