For the past 20 years, I have been writing text and inserting images.

Now I try to learn how to create interesting videos. The following is one of my first few attempts to create video with interest. This video was filmed by me at at the 25th Anniversary of the Nonyas and Babas at Malacca in late 2012. There were around 700 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Australia. I am not a Peranakan (Straits-born Chinese adopting the Malay culture), Instead of sitting down with strangers making small talk, I took my camera to the dance floor and tried to do some videos. One video may be of interest to viewers.

HOW DID I PRODUCE THE VIDEO ABOVE?
Hook - Protagonist -- An attractive woman with flower in her hair. She loves dancing.
Introduction - Crowded dance floor. Focus on this dancer if possible.
Middle - Antagonist -- Another good-looking woman who loves dancing too. Unable to video protagonist as the dance floor is crowded.
Break boredom of viewer -- I angled the zooms lens vertically. Not a good idea.
Zoom on singer
A camera man went into the dance floor and blocked my view.
Steady hand to produce good video with focus
Back to protagonist
Antagonist is hearing some conversation but the music is loud.
Other dances
Ending - End of song

Is this video capturing the attention of viewers? I think so. But it is up to the general viewer to judge.

Join the fun rather than just eat and watch the poor quality TV screens of the dancers. See the real people and appreciate life if you know how to dance!

I thought the song was "First Romance" but could not find it in You Tube. I grow up listening to Cliff Richard's songs. At that time in the 1960s, there were no distractions like coloured TVs and the internet or mobile phones.

I presume the song was "Falling In Love With You" by Cliff Richard and they are at:

These songs are for baby-boomers who grow up with music of the 60s. Unfortunately, the young generation seldom hear them as the baby-boomer generation was too busy building up their careers working long hours. I may go to the Cliff Richard's performance in Singapore in Feb 2013.
