Create a Music Video

So you decided to make a video for your class.  Good for you.  But now how do you go about doing it?  Do you make a video using  flip camera, your lap top or desktop, your personal device?  There are many ways to do this, and we will discuss this later with some new posts focusing on video making websites and apps, but for now lets focus on how to enhance your video. 

Unless you are musically inclined, the soundtrack to your video might be what ever background nose is going on during recording.  Music can change the attitude of the video.  A wistful tune will allow the viewer to know that the video is for entertainment.  While a more monotone tune signals that video is more serious in nature (good for lectures).  Here are some links to use if you choose to add some music to your next video.
