My first YouTube Film – featuring Smilla the movie star cat

I’m always interested in trying new things as you know. And I love technique, cool software and everything that helps me with my mission to document the world, or at least my own world. Did you know I’m on a mission? I didn’t either until recently. More about that another time…

When I started listening to podcasts I was raving about them and oh so badly wanted to start podcasting to inspire everyone. But the obstacle was the equipment and the language fear back then. And it might have had something to do with time too, I don’t know. But now its proved to be much easier (even though it sounds strange) for me to publish short videos, because I don’t even have to talk there. Sometimes what is easy and what is hard is a strange thing.

My first try is a short very boring movie with a couple of clips of my cat Smilla walking around in my parents garden that I filmed this week. Sunshine, apples (windfalls) and pink nose sniffing for birds, ears flapping for all the sounds outside. I personally think she is the cutest cat, but she is not much for action really… Sorry ’bout that!

She can not talk or say any funny words or even, like Nora the cat, play the piano, but who cares? I ♥ Smilla.

My first YouTube Film

Anyway, watch it now and tell me what you think:

She is adorable, right? Love the music too, found on the net. I just used dad’s camera to take a couple of clips and put it together in Windows Movie Maker that was on the computer already! Easy, only took an hour to make – and now I have a YourTube Channel called iHannaNow.

I can’t remember doing something this techie and having virtually no problem uploading it and making it work. YouTube is good, and so are my movie making skills. You just can’t see them yet in this movie, hehe. It’s kind of a test, but I’ll keep this one and probably do even more cat movies and who knows what else?

    Smilla is adorable! We’ve tried to put various cats on a leash, but it didn’t work out that well for us! Thanks for the up-front on how easy it was to make your video. Maybe I’ll have to make one of our kitty-kitties!

    Excellent debut as a movie director, Hanna! Congrats to the star too of course! Hope to see many more. Great when something you think will be difficult turns out to be painless, in’t it?

    This is very cute. You’ve inspired me to buy a leash for my own purring monster and bring her outside. She’s not sure if she likes it yet. Your video is well done, much better than some others I’ve seen out there.

    Oh my how I love this video!!!! I watched it several times and showed it to my children (we are ALL cat lovers). What a wonderful, sweet kitty and a beautful song. Smilla is gorgeous! Thanks for introducing me to Cat Power as well. I hope to see more of Smilla at YouTube in future. You are talented.

    Wow you were able to get your cat to walk on a leash! We keep our cats inside because of all the wild critters and cars but maybe we could try a leash.
