I have finally got round to editing over 1.5 hours of footage taken by my nephew (Murray Dorrans age 14), while we were all on Safari in Tanzania. Don’t worry I have condensed it down to around 4.5 minutes and have worked the footage around Disney’s, The Lion King (Original Broadway Cast Recording) ‘Circle of Life’ soundtrack. The footage was imported onto a Mac and edited using the pre-installed Apple iMovie software. It’s the first time I have ever used this software, but without reading any manuals or consulting help files, I managed to put it together myself. The Apple iMovie software was an absolute joy to use and incredibly intuitive. Anyway, I hope that you enjoy it! It features some imagery that I did not manage to capture using my Canon DSLR.

  1. Amazing mate. Can’t believe you got so close to so much – very jammy. Great filming too – your nephew must have the Mabin gift?!

    I’ve just started making movies too – although nothing like as good as yours. Check out my channel if you get a mo’. Any tips much appreciated (I especially like your start and finish sequence – and the music… I haven’t got to sound yet!!): http://www.youtube.com/user/TheGreenAgency?feature=mexp

    Speak soon!

  2. Brilliant video! No manual or help files? Well of course, you’re a bloke!

  3. Nicely down Paul & Nephew! Music layer really makes the video. Love the Giraffe scene @ 1:30 – that looks so gorgeous, would’ve loved to have seen that clip extended slightly.
