    Default Sunrise, Sunset (from "Fiddler on the Roof")

    "Fiddler on the Roof" is my second favorite musical, so I've been wanting to do at least one song from it for my YouTube channel. Hope you like my rendition:

    Another great one from you, John. I like how you pan your screen to the candle at the end.
    It is just not right to tease by mentioning your SECOND favorite musical without tellling us your number one favorite.

    Thanks, Joseph! "The Sound of Music" is undoubtedly my favorite musical. "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Flower Drum Song" follow close behind, but I give the nod to "Fiddler" because of the emotions it stirs in me. Love "Carousel" too and I've gotta do at least one song from that musical as well.

    I love everything about this video ! The mood is set perfectly ! I too like to know how you moved the camera toward the end ! Did you shoot with two cameras ?
    Fiddler on the roof was one of those movies that stays in my head for many many years ! I still remember the fiddler sat on the roof at dusk in the beginning of the movie !
    Great work as always John. Bravo.

    Thanks, Brenda! The fiddler actually has a pretty nice solo instrumental during the opening credits of the movie, actually an actor pretending to play to an Isaac Stern performance. That actor did a good job because his timing was good! For the panning of the candle at the end, I recorded myself and the candle separately, and using green screening, I overlayed one video over the other, then panned both videos at slightly different rates, one to get me out of the way, and the other to finish with the candle in the center.

    I am in awe of the talent level of many of the UU crowd, and I can't imagine trying to make a comprehensive list of those I admire. However, John, you are definitely on that list. Thank you for sharing with us.
