**My little Anti-Bush, Anti-War Slideshow.....**
Edited on Sat Nov-13-04 11:35 PM by NC_Nate
I made a little video/slide show the other day and thought I'd share it with everyone.....

It's my first attempt at using MS Moviemaker.. please watch it and give some feedback... :toast:

It's set to the Pearl Jam's cover of Bob Dylan's "Masters of War"....

All I ask is please, please "Right Click, Save As.." so it doesn't kill my buddies server...(thanks mysubaruimp of SBN)

Right Click Save As:

1. Wow...
Edited on Sat Nov-13-04 11:48 PM by NJ_Lib
Nate, that was awesome! I know nothing about movie making so I can't give you that kind of advice, but I can tell you that I loved watching it... The Dylan tune you chose was perfect! You spent a lot of time on this but I'm sure it felt good! A cleansing of sort... Either that or it made you even madder...

Thank you for sharing with us!


PS - By the way, a few days ago a high school in Denver got a visit from two Secret Service agents because they planned on performing this song in the upcoming talent show. Apparently, the last verse says something about hoping that the President will die and they thought that warranted wasting our money and taking a trip out there to speak to the "suspects"...

School Talent Show Draws Secret Service :Colorado Band Singing Dylan Song Seen as Threatening President Bush


BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 12, 2004 Parents and students say they are outraged and offended by a proposed band name and song scheduled for a high school talent show in Boulder this evening, but members of the band, named Coalition of the Willing, said the whole thing is being blown out of proportion.

The students told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver they are performing Bob Dylan's song "Masters of War" during the Boulder High School Talent Expos because they are Dylan fans. They said they want to express their views and show off their musical abilities.

3. Good job NC_Nate.
It must have taken a long time to match the pictures to the lyrics.

It was heartbreaking, and the ending was perfect. Hope to see more of your work soon.

7. Right On! If you make a higher-res version
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 12:31 AM by ConsAreLiars
someone here can probably give you server space and ease the burden on your friend's server. It's the kind of imagery that demands and deserves to be seen full-screen, but the artifacting was a problem. If you have higher resolution originals, I think it would be worth the time to create a high res version as well.

If Moviemaker is the cause of the artifacting you might look at the Flash format. These guys http://www.takebackthemedia.com have done some powerful work also.

(edit to fix link)

8. I liked it - a lot
Hi -
I remember the first time I ever heard Masters of War.... yes, way back in the early 60's ... it was fantastic then and it is very appropriate now. You did a really nice job and, hopefully, you don't mind if we send it on via email to various friends, etc.?
Thank you.
Jackie

10. Thank you everyone.....
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 12:59 AM by NC_Nate
for the kind words...

Making the video was a lot of fun and I am ecstatic that everyone is enjoying it.. I think the song is responsible for 95% of the emotion being felt...

I wish the quality of the pictures was a little better..but again, it was my first time messing with a moviemaker..ConsAreLiars I'll look into using a flash format for my next one... :toast:

qijackie: I don't mind at all if you email the link around.. just ask them to "right click, save as". Also, you can email it.. It's not too big, I've been sending it around for the past couple weeks...

Another host is more then welcome...to take the burden off of this one..

Thanks again everyone.. I can't explain how much your kind words make me feel
Cheers
NC_Nate

Also here is the video of Pearl Jam on Dave Letterman ...courtesy of michaelmoore.com.. this is where I first heard "Masters of War".... (yeah I'm a young buck :))http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/index.php?id=226

12. For your next project
(since you are a "young buck") you might want to look at the words and music of Phil Ochs, a contemporary of Dylan. Some:
http://www.cs.pdx.edu/~trent/ochs/lyrics/cannons.html
http://www.cs.pdx.edu/~trent/ochs/lyrics/one-more-parad...
http://www.cs.pdx.edu/~trent/ochs/lyrics/what-are-you-f...

(and more)

To get a sense of his musical style, Amazon has a few short clips from several albums. If his voice speaks for you, as it does for me, I have most of his albums and can send you mp3's if you like. PM me if you need them.


And a :kick: for those who haven't had a chance to see the video.

Get it, share it.

(and if you can, host it.)

22. Sounds good, except I'm in Calif. I'd like to see some nationwide
stuff happening PDQ!

I've heard of a few here and there...one near me in San Fran. I'll need to pay closer attention and HOPE this takes off like wild fire!!

But beware... this time (2004/5), people will get hurt. As it was in my time(VNW protesting aka Kent State) , so shall it be again...

Fasten your seat belts.

Please God, Peace in our time~~SB

23. Great Slideshow
I always wondered, if you could get a large group of people to constantly request a song like Pearl Jam's cover of Bob Dylan's "Masters of War" on a radio station, would they not start wondering why the sudden influx of requests, then that song would get into high rotation... then we let the media do its thing...and see what happens.
