The Char-Lettes

My church hosts an annual Oscar Night. Any member can submit a video 5 minutes or less in length to be judged. The audience views all the entries and votes for the standard categories: best actor, best actress, best music, best animation, etc.

I decided to enter a video this year (because I'm in graduate school and have an abundance of free time...cough, cough). I wanted to make a music video featuring music from The Trans Siberian Orchestra. I love their music. I have been known to listen to their songs in the summer. I know, I know, shame on me. Anyway, I filmed the video (which took awhile) and handed the clips to my fantastic film friend Janet who did the editing, cropping, and designing. The video won Best Actress and Best Costume/Make up.

Here are the Char-Lettes performing Queen of the Winter Night.

Alex + Anna Winn said...

Char you are so funny! How long did that TAKE you?!! LOL Oh...and Emmett is the only one who is super fat (when I'm not pregnant). So he gets the special picture on my blog. Actually the real truth is that Zoƫ flipped out because it didn't look like Emmett when we drew him with a stick body the first time! ha.

Thanks for a great the entertainment! We loved it!

Celine + Cameron said...

That was awesome! You are so talented! :)

Melissa said...

A couple of things: 1. You look pretty good with bangs, you should cut them! 2. How many ways can you contort your name to mean something cool? Will you please do that with my name because the name Melissa doesn't seem to have the same elastic ability that yours does. 3. Where do you come up with this stuff?

I knew this was gonna be good as soon as I read those first two lines, but I had no idea it would have me cackling out loud. It was the "oh oh oh OH oh OH oh oh" girl that did it.

The Char-Lettes are better than those Robert Palmer "Addicted To Love" girls.

Love TSO!

IT is so good...I burned it to a DVD and we are going to watch it every year on Christmas Eve to celebrate the season.
