Male Speaker: We've all wanted our five minutes of fame but now you can have it sooner than you think with websites that allow you to put yourself into the middle of the action simply by uploading your picture. The first website is offered by Fox Pictures it can be found here. They have a variety of different Fox Movies that you can add yourself into. The clips are taken directly from the movie they just add your face on to one of the characters just choose the movie that you want a star and then click star in this clip, choose upload photo and upload a plain photo of yourself facing forward, position your photo the way that you wanted and then confirm the point placements. Now, just let it process and watch the finished product, my favorite ones are Office Space and City Slickers.
The next website is similar to www.icetruck.tv which I've mentioned in our previous video because it incorporates your photo into the background of the video, you can find it at trackfilm.se, a website that's based out of Sweden. Upload your picture and then just let the movie play this is a movie that they've made but they integrate your photo really well into the clip and make it really believable.
If you go to starwars.jibjab.com you can put yourself into a condensed version of the Empire Strikes Back, you can upload a different photo for each character so you can use the photo of yourself as well as photos of your friends for this movie or you can just use the faces of the original actors then when you click make my movie it will use your face as the character that you chose then you can send it to your friends when you finish to let them view it or you can pay 499 to download it and keep it forever.
You may have noticed that this was created to jibjab.com, if we go to their main site you will find the jibjab has a lot of different videos and e-cards that you can add yourself into as well. Of them will be in the true jibjab fashion with oversized heads and puppet like mouths, they're always really fun to make and watch and send to friends and for a small fee you can even download any of them and keep them for ever.
I have included a few more websites on my blog, www.tinkernut.com/forum/video-tutorial-help/cool-websites-star-in-your-own-films that allow you to add yourself into the videos, and I'm always interested in finding more.
