Somos Scouts (We are Scouts)

Everyone berates Microsoft, and there are plenty of good reasons to do so, but I have just spent the last couple of days falling in love with Windows Live Movie Maker.  If you thought you were going to remake The Titanic, then you’re in the wrong place.  But for someone with zero experience and even less patience, whose main ambition is to splice a few bits together and add some music to the back, it was absolutely totally what I was looking for.  Clear, obvious and intuitive, I even managed to figure out how to extract a sound track from an existing video on YouTube and save it as an MP3 possibly not entirely legally.  And now I have seven minutes worth of video to tout around a few primary schools over the next week or so, and hopefully recruit this year’s new crop of Scouts.
