Friday Fun Fact and Video – Never Before Seen Footage of Lion Paw and Oliver Playing

It’s not just a book trailer. It is a piece of me, filled with the passion I have for what I do!

The long hours of editing to find just the right moments to transition to a photo or slow down a video clip so that it fits with the tempo of the music.

Placing the right words, the right photos, the right video to match the lyrics and messages of the song and the book.

Watching my furry friends play and listening to one of my all time favorite songs made the editing process enjoyable.

Identifying the song for the video was immediate. The song Different Colours – One People by Lucky Dube encompasses strong messages of understanding and love for one another which are also strong messages seen throughout the first book in the Living the Beach Life Series. A perfect mix of like mindedness in the creative world. Thank you for allowing me to use the song INgrooves.

The creative whims of a writer, an animal lover, a music lover.
