Seven Wonders of The World

No, this topic is not really about the Seven Wonders Of The World, whether the old seven wonders, or the new seven wonders.

Its about another new video I created yesterday, and uploaded to Metacafe. It took me one whole day, from morning till late at night.

This is the story of the Seven Wonders:-

Junior high school students in Chicago were
studying the Seven Wonders of the World. At
the end of the lesson, the students were asked
to list what they considered to be the Seven
Wonders of the World. Though there was some
disagreement, the following received the
most votes:

1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. The Taj Mahal in India
3. The Grand Canyon in Arizona
4. The Panama Canal
5. The Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall

While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many." The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help."

The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:

1. to touch...
2. to taste...
3. to see...
4. to hear... (She hesitated a little, and then added...)
5. to feel...
6. to laugh...
7. and to love.

The room was so quiet, you could have heard a pin drop.

May this story serve as a gentle reminder to all of us that the things we overlook as simple and ordinary are often the most wonderful - and we don't have to travel anywhere special to experience them.

Enjoy your gifts!

The first thing I did was to source for pictures. A picture tell a thousand words. So, I need 3 pictures for each illustration, because I wanted to tell 3 thousand words :)

There were pictures of the seven wonders I needed to download, 3 pictures for each wonder, and that copmes up to 21 pictures. Then there are the junior high girl's seven wonder. And another 3 pictures for each 'wonder' and that's another 21 picturesbringing it to 42 pictures altogether that I needed to source.

Luckily, with Google Image, I managed to get my pictures downloaded before dinner.

Using a great software to create this video, if you are curious, here is a link to download this software. But you have to buy it to have the watermark removed.

And the end product...Hope you guys will love it!

Nice video.

Just a suggestion: I think that long block of text at 5:10 should be extended around 3-5 seconds more to allow slower readers to digest it.
