View Full Version : "Get Well" Video for Leroy (UkuEroll)

If you don't know already, one of our ukulele brothers hasn't been doing too well. Leroy (UkuEroll) (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/member.php?u=6408)

If you're not familiar with what's going on then please read this thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20776).

We also recently had a positive update (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?t=20962) on Leroy's condition.


We'd like to pull together as a group and make a video of ''get well'' messages to help speed up Leroy's recovery. I'd love for as many people as possible to contribute. Seeso will be working his editing magic on all contributions to create an end product.

All you have to do is record a short (20 seconds max) message, upload it to a file sharing website and PM me the link to your video so it can be downloaded.

If my PM inbox is full then email the link to

shaned1985@live.com


We want to put this together relatively quickly so all videos need to reach me by this time next Saturday (November 28th)



Thanks to everyone for being so awesome :D

Thanks for taking point on this, Shane. Guys, it only has to be "Get well, soon, Leroy." It doesn't have to be much more than that.

Should this be in .avi format or .wmv ? I just did a little get well video, but don't know if I should run it through Windows Movie Maker first?

Thanks!

Okay. I'm going to PM you in a minute. I'm going to put it on my site and give you the URL, then you can let me know when you've grabbed it, and I can take it back down. :)

You're welcome!

Wow :D Thanks so much guys!

Can everyone else be sure that they email or PM me with their video. There's a couple of things I have to do to the files before they get to Seeso - just to speed up the editing process.

Thanks again :)

For the benefit of viewers watching in American, "made up" = "stoked". :D

I'm having a bit of a struggle, because of mic problems, but I've just realised that I can just get a vocal stage mic out. No need for anything fancy just to say get well soon!

Great job man. Leroys wife contacted Deach via email, so I guess he'd be the best place to start.

I got the following message from Terri:


Dear Rick

Oh my goodness! That is absolutely fantastic! I can't believe everyone has gone to so much trouble and effort for him. It's made my day and I know he'll be amazed and overwhelmed.

Thanks to Shane Seeso Deach everyone and yourself for all your good wishes ...I love the vid...sheer brill! He's supposed to go to a rest hos for 4-6 weeks but sheer determination (i call it bloody-mindedness) means he'll be coming home any day... the mind is raring to get back to norm but the body is weak!

Thank you UU all so much.

love Terri

I saw that you sang some of Stephen Foster's "Hard Times Come Again No More" at the end of the video--I hope you won't think I'm copycatting you, but I've been practicing to do this song in a week or so on my channel! Eep?

Great job, BTW! :)
