When you hear "Freedom" thrown around by conservatives...

Post by RitaAnn »

realize what they actually mean. I remember posting a thread on this topic back on the old AAP board. You have conservatives saying things like "Obama's taking away our freedoms," and "we're losing our freedoms," and "liberals are enemies of freedom."

Well, I made this video using Xtranormal animation and used a social conservative character to explain exactly what "freedom" means to the average social conservative.

Rita, I loved it. I can't stand to listen to that automaton voice without inflection though. Is there any way to use the software to make the video, but then dub in a real voice?

Fortunately, the vast majority of those who think like our little pal in the video are on the downhill side of their lives...

There is. I haven't used it, never thought to. But I'll try it next time. :)

I did an experiment using audio from video with Xtranormal and You Tube Editor. Not great, but the message is clear.
Paul LePage is crazy.

Much better. With practice, I think that can work very well.

This time, I used my own voice. They have a feature or app you can allow access to that records your voice with mp3. Needless to say, I stink without a script.
