My neighbor Jerry Ghinelli spent more than 4 months decorating his property with Christmas lights. I shot a video of it, added some music and send it to him. The very next day the video was posted on the local new site Patch.com!

It took 20 minutes of filming and a lot of editing to create a mediocre 2 minute video. The second video was pre-programmed, taken in one shot, and no editing was required other than to add music.
