DeSordi Family Picnic August 2007

What Would You Do?

What’s a girl to do when she has been famed the family paparazzi and she has 377 photos to share with her family, but she doesn’t want it to be boring?


She stayed up all night, two nights in a row. She cropped the pictures, added music and snappy titles then finished it off with some special effects.

Enjoy The Show! VIDEO HERE.


PS: The movie is GIANT and you will need to exercise patience while waiting for the 7 minute long video to load.

Also, for the movie you will need a Quick Time Player installed on your computer. If you don’t have one, download / install one.

If you don’t know how to, then you are probably also still using Internet Explorer, when you should be using Firefox, and that means I can’t help you.

Now, I can not state this enough, YouTube and every other video hosting site tend to destroy my movies. My files are HUGE, my effects are intense, so when they are compressed by said video hosting sites, my “movies” end up looking like shit. Therefore I do not like to use YouTube or anything of the like.

I use my own damn site that’s located HERE. [This is MY MAC /APPLE MADE website page. On the TOP LEFT there is a MOVIE TAB where all of my videos are stored. You will need to click on Archives if you wanted to watch all of them].

  • Meleah

    MICHAEL C: I love MY MAC pages. LOVE. That is sooo cool you have the same B-Day as my father! Do you get shafted every year? We go out of our way to make SURE my dad gets Sole Attention on xmas eve. Its not easy but we do alright by him.

  • Hey! You’re bloggin’ on the weekend! Okay, I’m going to download the vid now…

  • Meleah

    HOLLYGL: I know, I never blog on weekends, but… I finally finished this video. It took me over a week to get the TIMING right…So, I wanted to post it right away!

  • Oh my gosh, how much fun was that! “Cover your mouth so they can’t read our lips”. Hilarious!! :):)

    You did a stellar job, Mereb. I wanted to go for a swim, nibble on a little something off the barbecue, and take a closer gander at that tatoo!

    Thanks for sharing such a cool memory with us.

  • That was great… so much fun. I especially loved the T shirts that only the men got.
    Did you make it on Imovie and then upload it on to .mac?
    Great job!

  • Great video. I love doing that with my pictures too. I never print them anymore, instead I make a new video once a year. We look at them more this way than photos in an album.

  • The best friend

    xooxooooxoi loved it.
    I am so proud of you.
    Remember the days of me teaching you – the 18 hour projects to accomplish one 4 minute video?????

    I thought this was a great slideshow.

  • Meleah

    HOLLY: Ha Ha! Thanks for watching it!
    AMBER/RANDOM: Yes, that was made in iMovie and published to my DOT Mac ACCT. (I tried to get one of those shirts ALL DAY)
    Mrs Schmitty: Thanks! (photos are BORING in comparison to video)
    BFF: Oh My God… THAT was a nightmare! This “movie” still took me all week, but… I did it in small pieces, NOT like Three Men & A Chandelier (when we did that in 19 hours STRAIGHT for a movie that NO ONE else watched!) xxoo

  • OLLY

    nicely done sista

  • The best friend

  • Meleah

    BFF: its not a waste! These are MY memories!
    MOM: I am so happy you liked it!

  • I get special attention for my B-day that day too. Although for some reason, the attention usually turns to Jesus as they day gets later. I’d better not complain though 😉

  • I love your Mac site, darling!!
    You are too gorgeous!

    Will watch it today on my other computer – the Mac – looking forward to it too – your family is as delicious as you are…

  • come on over and pick up your LUV badge 🙂

  • that was so awesome!!!! i love your family… they look so much like mine from when i was a kid.. before everyone flaked… except me of course…i still wanna be adopted…..

  • The video sounds awesome but sadly is beyond my already creaking home Internet connection though.

    However not to be deterred I shall watch it tomorrow at work (while my boss is distracted and looking the other way!).

    After all … with the amount of work you put in I feel like it would be rude of me not to watch! 🙂

  • Awwwww. You have such a cute family. I love it. xoxo

  • Meleah

    Michael C: HAHAHAHA
    MINX: Thanks! That site took MANY hours to construct. Hope you like the movie.
    DAWN: Aww… Thank you. I love YOUR blog too!
    PAISLEY: You WERE adopted…BY ME
    GEEDOS: I hope you like it
    LESLIE: They LOVE you back!

  • That was AWESOME!! 🙂

    Looks like you had a great time – you’ve got a huge family – if that had been me there would have only been about five of us! Plus I love the pool and the hot tub – very nice and perfect on a day like that.

    Looks like a good time was had by all – I love seeing pictures of happy people – puts me in a good mood for the day.

    And great job of putting together all the photo’s – even though I’m not gonna be there I’m already looking forward to next years so I can see the slideshow! 🙂

  • Meleah

    GEEDOS: Oh I am soooo happy you liked the video (and that you were able to view it!. Not to worry I am a mad movie making woman. There will be PLENTY more where that came from!


  • Meleah


    You are amazing. I loved it. I am gonna bring my laptop over to my dads so he can see it. Can you burn it on a disk for him? He would love that and I have not a clue how to do it.

    kiss kiss


    Oh by the way I added a comment on the video but it came up anonymous and I could not figure out how to fix it. I ain’t a pro like you. 🙂

  • Glad to hear there will be more – bring them on – you have quite a talent in this area.
