Tower of babble

Ever wonder why parents always look tired? Here’s a video to explain it.

One of the things that make the Flip cameras such game changers is the form factor—small and light enough that you can give one to a child for entertainment.

So for a while now Andrea has been running around the house with a Flip camera. There’s very little footage that’s actually usable, but she sure has fun.

Embedded here is a short compilation that I do believe adequately illustrates why so many parents of small children look so tired. Man, if I could bottle that energy and sell it…

High energy

As a nerd aside, the footage was taken with a Flip, assembled and color corrected in Final Cut Pro, the audio sweetened and the loop added in Soundtrack Pro.

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
