Okay, I finished putting together the roast from the pre-cruise dinner. As I explained before, the camera I hooked up to capture the audio from my wireless lapel microphone didn’t record, so all I had was lousy audio from my other camera in the back of the room. Jimmy Moore (bless him) recorded the whole thing from the front of the room, closer to the big speakers, so the room echo on his iPhone movie wasn’t as bad. He stripped off the audio and sent it to me, then I synched it up with my video.
I was actually about 10 feet from the slide-show screen during the roast, so while editing this thing together I split the video, moved the screen closer to me, then blew it up nice and big so you can see the slides more clearly. For the audio clips that played over big speakers during the roast, I turned down the live audio track and mixed in the original audio files so you can hear them more clearly. I also added back in the two video clips (from Quiz Show and Seinfeld) that didn’t (grrrr) play on the screen during the roast.
You can watch the roast below, but it will be easier to read the slide-show screen if you click YouTube button at the bottom of the player to watch it on YouTube at a larger resolution. Or just click this link to go to the video on YouTube.
