SMLP – Making Stuff Video for her Little Brother

Recently been updating my photo Library from iPhoto to the new Photos app from OS X (Post on my experience to follow) and I just could help be have a good look back over the massive library to see what was in there.  I thought I would pull to gather a series of pics and videos with a theme to see what I could do with them.

What better than to do a iMovie Project from Little Miss SMLP to the even littler Mr SMLP Jn.  Here is my end result.

Let me know what you think.

Apple Watch beams newborn’s heartbeat to family

 

I have been waiting to pounce on a Apple Watch purchase since the device was announced.  The only thing holding me back is Version One syndrome.  I wanted to wait to see how the reviews paned out before investing.  So far the general consensus has been that its a great device with version one limitations that should be fix with some software down the pipe.   So my head tells me I should wait; however when I see storeys like this my heart tells me to buy…

Making Stuff – My first play with GarageBand

GarageBand is something I have had access to for years but have not give it a test run.  As part of my new year quest to be more creative i thought I would have a little play about with it and see what sticks.

Anyone that hasn’t used it before; its a music production application for Mac that comes as part of your standard install.  A version of it is also available for iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch) as well for anyone that want to have a little play around.

I have to say it is a very comprehensive bit of software that will allow somebody like me that is not very musical (but would like to thing I am) create something that could pass as music.

I’m sure with some playing about and investing a good amount of time into it I could pull together something better but it has some very good “Apple Loops” that allow you to create something basic without too much hassle.  So here is my first little creation from playing around.

Let me know what you think? or not.
