A few weeks ago I was asked to join a group that we were starting called “The Home Movie Experiment”. We had a bunch of people emailing and asking questions and the more we discussed the concept the more excited we got. So here is the first part of the Home Movie Experiment. I will be your host for the next two weeks. I am sure you will get into the main topic pretty quickly and begin to see how easy it really is.
What is the Home Movie Experiment? Basically it is a way to record videos of yourself at home, with your family and friends and then watch those movies on your PC. You have various choices of which movie you want to record or watch as many times as you want. It only takes about thirty minutes to record one movie and that is long enough for most people to relax and unwind.
The concept is that people are using digital video recorders (DVR) to watch the videos at home instead of the traditional movie theater. You can do this with your personal computer or laptop. Some may say that the DVR is taking over the home movie industry but that is not true. With more people recording their own home movies it is becoming an increasingly popular alternative.
It is very easy to record the videos. You simply pop in the disc, start the movie and then stop it when you are finished recording. You will not have to worry about the quality of the movie because it will be perfect. If you decide that you would like to view your videos again you can just pop them into your computer’s disc drive. Then you can watch the videos whenever you want, night or day, as long as you have internet connection available.
Another great reason for recording your own home movies is that you can share them with your friends and family. Since you are recording all of your videos you can give everyone copies instead of burning them onto a disc. That way they will have their own copy to watch at home. Many people also record these videos onto disk and then transfer them onto DVD so that they can watch at their leisure. This makes for a great vacation gift as well!
Another great reason to record your own home movies is that you can watch them whenever you want. No longer will you have to miss work or school because you wanted to watch a movie. You can record a new video whenever you feel the need to watch one. You can also re-record old ones to share with your friends and family.
