Art Journal Tutorial - Uni Posca Paint Pens

I have made a few videos with my android phone (first free hand and then taped to a tripod).  I spent as much time and energy on making the videos as I did on the actual art journaling.  Overall I liked making videos but knew there had to be a better way.  I did some research on a variety of options and decided to purchase the Pinnacle Studio App for my iPad (newly acquired thanks to my husband's recent upgrade to an iPad Mini).  Pinnacle Studio is AWESOME!  I watched a couple of vids on how to use it (on YouTube) and then made a test video.  In no time I was having a blast.  I still need to tweak the positioning of the iPad (will be trying for an overhead angle) and need better lighting in my art studio, but I am pretty jazzed about how this first attempt turned out.

What a joy to be able to turn on the video camera and then forget it is there.  I recorded for 38:00 minutes while I just had fun playing in my journal, listening to loud music, etc.  Later, when it was time to make the video, it was pretty easy to cut up the raw footage, saving only little bits of some stages (those parts that give the gist without being too long/boring).  I also had my son help with the sound (he played a part of one of my husband's songs).  What do you think?
