Sons #1 and #4 visited with their families and overlapped for a good bit of yesterday. Hectic and enjoyable and thoroughly unmissable. The video camera added to the fun with my inexpert hit and miss version of filming and #1’s more professional style. Then he proceeded to give me a lesson on content, storyboarding, music and special effects on the imac. Imovie is a versatile and easy to use programme.

Today I have tried to upload the finished movie to youtube so as to be able to share it privately on the blog. No success. It is probably my fault and maybe on second thoughts it is just as well. I never know what is safe to share, even with the limited readership I have here. It’s a sad reflection of our time, but we have to be careful about content and photos.

What do other people think?

    I tend not to take photos – let alone videos – of humans at the best of times, but on the rare cases that I do, I err on the side of privacy. (Youtube has a reasonable setting for that, whereby you can share the specific URL with up to a few (25?) people.)

    Heck, I have a hard enough time seeing my grandkids on Youtube and I’m on the list. I think it’s pretty safe if you aren’t including names, addresses, and phone numbers.

    As long as you have their permission to post and you restrict to those you want to see it, it should be OK. It is always a good idea to be careful. I posted some photos of my son-in-law running the marathon on FB and he was sort of dis-pleased that people were contacting him and congratulating him when he had not told them he was running! You never know.

    Food for thought there. The adults were all OK with the video being posted, but maybe it was just as well I couldn’t manage it technically.

    My family are so very visible on the internet that I tend to post photos and videos on flickr – grandchildren and all. I don’t put them on the map if the pics are taken at home (mine or theirs) but will put a beach or a park on the map if I can be bothered. My no.1 grandchild has her own tag, and I think will soon have her own flickr stream too. (She’s 3) As both sons are so involved with online technology in their professional life I suppose I just take it for granted. After all, people can see your kids in the flesh if they happen to be around at the right time. Don’t really see that there’s a problem.

    Thanks, Chris, that is reassuring and sensible advice. Still can’t fathom out posting the video!
