You Have to Crawl Before You Can Walk

I thought I'd post a video of the first time Max crawled. It's a bit late - based on the date of the file, I think it must have been taken in February, when Max was 11 months. Does that sound right?

Anyway, I've been wanting to do this for a while. I've been working on my editing skills - the thing that's interesting about this video is it's taken in 2 different shots with a single camera, one shot immediately after the other.

Update: Krista said that last paragraph didn't make a lot of sense.  I guess the video is so seemless it looks like a single shot (she thought it was the same video she uploaded to her blog a while back). Anyway, what I did was take the overhead shot of him crawling toward the Doritos, then with the same camera, I moved him back to his starting point, and took the baby's eye shot of him crawling toward the Doritos.  I then edited the two shots together, so it looks like a single scene of him crawling toward the Doritos, but with angles from two different cameras at the same time. 

Ok, this may be basic stuff, but I thought it was cool...


  1. Looks Great to me!
    Excellent Editing.

  2. Thank you! It was a lot of fun...I think I could make a living at this :)

  3. Nice job. So now your boy is a junk food junkie. Julianna did not sound very happy. Were those her doritos? It sounded like it. Seamless work. Steven Spielburg hard at work.
