An Online Movie – and YOU are the Star


Getting Your clips to me: Use Great for sending large attachments!

FINAL DEADLINE EXTENSION: This is it – the final deadline extension for this project. I want as many mompreneurs as possible to have a chance to be in this viral video. Deadline is: Thursday, February 12, 2009. This is it! I gotta get this project put together so if you want to be in it, get your tush movin!!!

I am changing the software I will use to piece the clips together, so your clip can be in the following formats: .asf, .avi, .dvr-ms, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, and .wmv. Again, if you know how, add your logo or URL to your clip.

Last Deadline Extension: Okay, okay!!! I hear you. You want to be in this, you just need a little more time. So, you’ve got until Sunday, February 8 at midnight EST to get your clip to me. Email it to sarah at and put video clip in the subject line. Also post a comment here to let me know you’ve submitted an entry (just in case cyberspace eats your email!).

Call me crazy but I’ve gotten this wild idea to put together an online movie that stars other Maverick Mompreneurs. It’s an updated version of The I AM Movie that I posted way earlier on this blog.

Here is my idea:

-You send me a very short, downloadable video clip (.wmv’s please) of you completing this statement: “I Am _______” fill it in with whatever adjective(s) you think best describes you. For example, “I am One Smart Cookie” or “I am amazing” or ‘I am a wife, a mom, and an amazing business woman” (ok that one was kind of long). You get the idea?

-If you know how to stick your logo on your clip, all the better.

-I will go through all the clips I receive and pick the ones with great energy, originality, savvy and hip-ness and splice together a viral video, complete with music. If you are chosen, you’ll get to see it first to make sure you want to participate.

So fire up those flip cameras and laptop cameras and capture YOU!  But hurry, the deadline for entries is February 5. Post your downloadable link as a comment, okay? You can ask any questions there, too.

Need help converting your clip to .wmv? Scott Stratten was kind enough to recommend this program:

Can’t wait!
