I went with an 8.5x5.5 size card this time. I have a pack of bristol sketch cards, but they are really skinny and it's hard to really get a good composition in that.
I also need to figure out some different lighting. The reflecting light on this video was really bad.
Also, Windows Movie Maker is nice, but I'd rather be able to speed up or slow down the video to match the music rather than just double or quadruple the lapse time. I'd love a reduce time feature that would go by frame rate, maybe some searching for different editing software is in order.
