This is a copy of the slideshow that was played at the end of the 5th grade promotion ceremony. Parents submitted baby/toddler photos along with a recent photo of their child and I then scanned, cropped and retouched them to get the best looking pictures possible. The kids seemed to have a good time singing along with the music as well as trying to guess their classmates from their baby photos.
The movie starts with a fanfare introduction and then quickly transitions into the "slideshow" portion of the video. I made a similar video when Rosemary graduated from 5th grade, but this time I decided to show the baby/toddler photo in a smaller window so that everyone could compare the two photos. The movie ends with a short synchonized fireworks show and some credits.
P.S. If anyone has problems playing this back at HD resolution, you can switch to SD by unclicking the HD button. That should stream more quickly. Or you can click play and immediately pause to let more of the video buffer. After the gray bar proceeds far enough, click play again. A good place to pause is at 19 seconds; can you find your child's picture?
