A local author in Lewes wants to publicise his forthcoming new novel on YouTube etc.
He’s not planning an epic movie – just an interesting short clip of his new book which is based in the Vietnam War.
I think he wants still shots and live action plus overlaid titles, text, voice over and possibly some background music.
Plus maybe some out-of-copyright old newsreel footage of the war etc.
He’s a great writer but a novice at videos etc.
Is there a quick and easy way?
Is there already software to help him on his Windows package he can use without needing expensive new software? He uses XP.
An i d i o t’s guide and some useful pointers would be highly appreciated.
