Pop the popcorn honey... we're going to the movies!

The kids have learned to fly on a simulator, built the hexarotor from scratch and successfully flown almost a dozen missions.  We've collected a great deal of experiences as well as lots of fantastic video.  Our final step in the project was to make project videos.  One aspect of that was to allow the kids to make their own movie from all the footage. 

What kind of movie would you produce if you had 4 GB worth of video footage, several hundred still shots and dozens of songs?  I can guarantee that each movie would be different.  That's certainly the case with the movies that the kids produced.  They are anywhere from 2-6 minutes each and have only tapped into a portion of all the great footage.  I'd urge you to take the time to watch them.

What amazes me is some of the similarities and stark differences in what each of them produced.  Most kids included the clips of crashing (lots of use of the term 'epic fail') and they all tended to include footage of themselves.  Who wouldn't right?
