Going Multimedia - Always Behind the Trends

OK. So a few weeks ago I saw this. I was very emotional at the time and it made me cry. I wondered what story my little slide show would tell. So I went to work (again...lack of hobbies). Then I was poking around the blogosphere and I saw these. I thought they were so clever and moving that I wanted to go back to my t-accounts and ledgers and forget my short movie making career. But I can't. I'm a filmmaker now and I can't deny my craft or calling (sarcasm). I need to show and tell (thanks to the queen) it to the world. So here is our story.




I wish I had the balls to send this to my family. (Of course if I had balls this infertility journey would be a LOT different). I have a fantasy that seeing this would help them to understand what we are going through. However, I am just not ready to open up to them yet. I am thinking that some day I might work this in to a very different kind of pregnancy announcement (hopefully). Because I do feel a need for people in my life to understand what I have been going through, but I feel more comfortable with them knowing once I have already succeeded. Analyze that!!!

Great job! I think it would be a wonderful intro to what you have been through for your family.

Great video...you did a good job.
I love the "Please Hold". :-)

I love this video - the cheekiness, the sadness all rolled into one. I hope that some day you feel comfortable enough to share it with your family, but thank you for sharing it with us.

ps - is it wrong that I giggled at the "please hold"?

What a great video. The graphics you chose were great.

I giggled at the "Please hold..." but burst out laughing at your husband getting hot whenever he goes to the doctor's office.

Much luck in 2009.

That was a fabulous video. I say when you are ready share away. Its light enough to keep them interested, but heavy enough to make them understand!

Caroline said...

I absolutely LOVED your video. It is one of the best I have seen. I hope that you can share it with your family one day, as it clearly explains what you are going through.

Great video! I hope that one day you will be able to let your family know about your journey.

Brenna said...

What a great video! The cucumbers, the "please hold," it all made me smile...but with sadness too, because I so understand what you're going through. I hope your next steps become clear soon!

You did a great job on the video!

Funny, yet honest about the pain we all feel.

Thanks for sharing.

Lori said...

Fantastic job. I love your sense of humor and straightforwardness. Where was the Europe bridge?

Wonderful creation, Megan.

The best video EVER!!!!!

Thanks for sharing that - I think you did a great job and the emotion really comes through. I hope you have someone you can share with IRL, but at least you can be open in the blogosphere! Creating something beautiful out of pain is one of the great things about art, you may have a new calling...

Sam said...

that's an interesting way to tell your story. It certainly tells it very well - your family should see it one day.

patiencesong said...

The video is awesome - both in its ability to bring humor to such a difficult experience as well as its honesty about the pain and frustration that is so much a part of infertility. I really do hope there comes a point where you can share it with your family.

Your video moved me to de-lurk and say hi. I'm also a scrapbooker, also on the infertility journey (secondary infertility though; some similarities, some differences, lots of pain & anguish).
I also loved the other videos you linked to.
Makes one want to ask the universe: WHY?????

FattyPants said...

Nice video. Thank you for sharing

Michelle said...

Thanks for the comment on the prom picture. And the baby (me) in the glass....yeah, I dont know what my Mom was thinking back then. LOL!

Beautiful Mess said...

That's an awesome video! Great job editing all of it! I'm new to your blog, this is my first time reading it. YAY for show and Tell! But I think that it would be a great thing to show your family. Once again, I don't know anything, so it is possible you have mentioned it and I haven't read it, yet! Thank you for sharing it, I enjoyed watching it :o)
Enjoy your day,
-D

Great video! I agree about telling family only after success -- part of our rationale is, "Look what jerks you were to us for years with your thoughtless questions and annoying comments, while we suffered in silence."

Tara said...

Dang, sister! I think you are the next big hit in Hollywood!

I hope you have the courage to show this to your family one day. It really portrays real emotion that others may be able to relate to, or at least empathize with.

You are so witty! I love the please hold....

I like it, thanks for sharing!

WiseGuy said...

Hello there, I am visitng your blog for the first time today. I could not get the video to play - it said, the video is not currently available (???). Maybe there is something wrong on my end itself.

Anyways, happy Monday! :)

In Due Time said...

Great video. Thanks for sharing and stopping by. (((Hugs))

Hi, I came over from patiencesong. I totally and completely know where are coming from and LOVE the last line "Because I do feel a need for people in my life to understand what I have been going through, but I feel more comfortable with them knowing once I have already succeeded." I could not have said it better myself and might have to steal that line from you! I have been needing to do a post of about this topic for a while myself and feel exactly the same.

I know you will find your way and what to do next. Sometimes it feels so uncertain, but you will make it!
