Thanks! She made the video, and then she picked that tune from my "catalog" to go with it.

I am very proud of her! She saw the Familjen video, and said "I want to do that". After briefly explaining how it was done, I sat her down with a digital camera and a pad, and off she went. Then I just ran the directory of JPEGs through mencoder to make a movie and then avimerge to add the music track. A fun project for kids (and grownups!) who like to draw.
