For my final mash-up assignment this week I did “Inappropriate Laughter” (3 stars). At first I didn’t know what movie to do because most of my favorite movies are comedies so they are funny anyway. Then I was going to do a serious scene from Remember the Titans. But then the Miracle speech popped up on the suggested videos on the side of YouTube and I knew I had to do it. I have heard the speech several times, mostly the child version because it is adorable. Here it is for your viewing pleasure:
Anyway, I figured there were a few places in there where laughter could be added because of how much the coach in the movie pauses. Here is the original version of the video that I used, found here:
And then my video:
Yet again, you can only hear it. I don’t know what the heck is going on. If you have any ideas let me know!
How I did it:
First, I used Free YouTube Downloader to download the YouTube video onto my computer. Then I went onto freesound.org and found two different laughing tracks from here and here. I then opened Windows Live Movie Maker and clicked Add Videos and Photos and imported the video into movie maker. I set the start point and end point to the parts I wanted them at. Then I found the first spot I wanted laughter to be and hit Add Music>Add at the Current Point and faded it in fast and out slow and turned the volume down some. I did that at all of the other points where I wanted laughter. Some of the pauses were longer so I used the longer clip. Some of them were shorter so I used the shorter clip. I faded them all in and out and turned them down so they sounded natural. Then I exported it “For Computer.” I think it turned out pretty well.
