Well, everyone…its done! I put together what I think is a decent production. It is 9:15 long. I'm my own worst critic, but my wife is even worse. If the video didn't work, she certainly let me know. She likes it.
I decided pretty early on to just take Kenny Chesney's "Boys of Fall" and simply follow the lyrics. I found a version of the song with the Saint's Sean Payton talking to his old high school team before a game and boy is the speach powerful. It really added to the song. I then followed it up with Uncle Krakcker's You Make Me Smile. I think the latter will help soothe the 4-6 season at the banquet. I do not intend to sell the DVD because I recognize these are copyrighted songs, but if anyone wants one I will find a way to burn it at no charge.
I learned a very valuble lesson: back up your material!!! I had basically the entire thing done with about 3 games to go, and then opened the project only to find all my video was "corrupted." I was sick. I was able to recover about 75% of it through time machine, but I did lose about 25% of my footage. I thought "thank God I don't do this for money or someone would be pi$$ed!"
So THANK YOU all for your suggestions. I checked back often to review your suggestions!
