Nice work kiddo. REALLY nice work.
 
Something in the same vein I watched in the early 90s: All the great Operas in 10 Minutes, from the days of yore before video editing software.

Now she's moved on to the Chinese classics. The entire "Journey to the West" is too massive for one video, but here's the first part of the first part, the story of the Monkey King:

 

 

Whoops! How do I de-embed this and make it a link?

And (dang it, maybe I can get the hang of NOT embedding videos in these posts) if you spotted some footage you weren't familiar with yet, it's because she just released her Halloween Special: Edgar Allen Poe.

Just catching up on these now. They're SO GOOOOOOOD!!!!! :wub:

 

I read a simplified, translated into Modern English version of Beowulf in 6th grade, so the story actually stuck with me. Your daughter's rendition of it was both informative and highly entertaining (as well as most amusing). She has such a wonderful sense of how to turn a good phrase, it's fantastic. Her animations are awesome as well! :)

 

I've encountered a couple different versions of Journey to the West, both in film, so I actually learned a ton from her video. Very cool! (also, even funnier than the previous one!) 

 

I've read a few Poe stories, but now I want to go read all of them. She does such a fantastic job of summarizing plots in a way that's both amusing and highly accurate. Which just goes to show how deeply she understands her source material. Which is AWESOME. ::D:

 

Also, I think it's neat she's got a buddy in on it too. Even more fun! ^_^

 

I look forward to the next one!!! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

That makes you biased; it doesn't make you wrong.

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

 

That gigantic stack of "Journey to the West" books in "The Monkey King" is made up of our family copies.  I recognize the dings along the spines.

      Hi all,
      just finished this one last night, hope you enjoy! Another really nice figure from Chris Fitzpatrick and his company Crocodile Games.  This was from their most recent Kickstarter if I'm not mistaken.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Can I ask people's considered opinions about the history reference books from Osprey Publishing?
       
      I had been vaguely aware of them Wherever Games Are SoldTM.  One or two have fallen into my lap and proven useful.
       
      But I have heard mixed things about them.  Some, I hear, are more reliable than others.  And I have heard a few rumors that academia doesn't exactly smile on them or those who write for them.  I haven't heard anything about those who illustrate for them, but I have an interest in that too.
       
      Since the InternetTM can be unreliable in these things, I thought I'd ask people who stand a better chance of having some experience.

      I'm looking for some decent cheap or free video editing software for Windows 10. Husband is working on a project for school about D&D but we need to do some video interviews and aren't really sure where to begin as far as editing goes.
