Can anyone suggest a site to get free short video clips that I can add music to? Vintage clips would be preferred if possible. Also, what programs are being used to produce some of the cool vids here? I've used Microsoft Movie Maker but there has to be something better.

 

Here's a favorite of mine by John (Beetlejuice):

Thanks for any suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!

You could use some of the vids that are on YouTube and use the Keepvid site to download it to your computer, then use your editing software to replace the native audio tracks.

For Windows I think Adobe Premiere is the industry standard. Adobe Premier Elements would be a "lite" version. There are various free video editors too, but you probably get what you pay for...

I am using Pinnacle moving making software. Although, my Cannon PowerShot SD 300 camera functions okay, I need to upgrade to a better camera with an external mic. Having the ability to place the mic close and pull back the camera would be a lot better. I learned on windows movie maker too. It is great place to start but very limted. I hope this helps my friend. Enjoy, Keni Lee
