Ive been making amateur birthday movies for my friends. You know, the video with a picture slide show and clips of funny dancing filmed on a digital camera, all edited together on Windows Movie Maker.
I know its simple stuff but I really have a great time making these movies and Im good at it too.
So I want to take it a step further.
I have a friend thats a DJ, so I want to make a video clip for one of his songs. I have an idea that would basically show a billboard with his picture on it, but he "comes alive" inside of it playing on his equipment. This billboard also rotates and sometimes other scenes like people dancing are also shown in it. Because his music is trance music, I also need the video to feature a lot of moving electronic waves, implement bright colored spirals and shapes in the video... etc..
Except, I have no clue how to bring this idea to life. I dont know what software to use, Im not sure how to bring the "animations" of the billboard and spirals to life. Im experienced with professional music editing software and creation, but not so much with the video department.
I would really appreciate any information that could help lead me to my goal
