Isabella Rocks Out

I thought that this video was pretty cool, and made it with a free program that came on my computer. You just add video clips, a song, title, credits, and hit "make muvee" and it spits it out looking like this. I was a little worried about posting it on You Tube because of the music and copyrights, but thought that there are tons of videos that are up with copyrighted music. Within a couple hours I got this e-mail from You Tube:

It seemed scary when I first started reading, but then I realized it basically said, "You WOULD BE violating copyright laws if we didn't already have this relationship with Universal Music Group. Shame on you! You got lucky this time.

So, enjoy the video.
