This was my first attempt at a video, and I learned something very important.  I can’t hit anything in front of the camera.  As videos of miss after miss piled up, I began to get discouraged.  Finally, though, I decided to make what lemonade I could with the lemons I had.  So let’s call this a video about persistence,  even though it’s just me persistently missing a couple of tricks.

My entry. 21.5 hours to spare, too! Lots of time!

[edit]

Ugh… I worked very hard to make the video line up with the song… Wilco aren’t known as copyright sticklers and I have the greatest respect for music and musicians (being one myself!) and the rights attached to publishing a song; however I thought for sure this would fall under fair usage. Nonetheless I might have to remove or replace it.

If you can’t view the video, can you let me know what country you’re in? I can still submit a less-than-great version by midnight if nobody can see it.


#19

I can see it :slight_smile:

Thanks! It was confirmed working in the U.S. also; I imagine that I’m fine keeping it in (phew!). Maybe when you acknowledge using the copyrighted material (there’s a button you can click) there’s just a short review process to determine if it’s being used in an acceptable/legal way.

Be much obliged if anyone ever stumbles across this thread and it’s NOT viewable (even after the contest ends); then I can swap out the music.
