Welcome to Missing Pieces

These are various video projects that I've either done for myself, my business (as is the first one here) or for clients. In all, I have done the editing of the various video clips, still pictures, special effects, titling/lettering, audio, soundtrack and audio overlays. Using either source material I have shot myself, created from other media or obtained from my clients or licensed. Copyright applies to all.

Got Bud? Joe Namath intros Bud Bowl vs Got Milk! Who will win?

Remember those great Bud Bowl commercials that Budweiser always created for the Super Bowl? This is an ode to them and yet its a bit of a parody in that in the end, it pokes a little fun at the whole thing. Produced with NO advanced tools, other than CorelPaint, Windows MovieMaker, Audacity, a Nikon camera and some poster board and bottles, toys, and a stocking! The background in my Bud Bowl commercial is a composite of the Meadowlands (field) and Metlife (Met-owlands? ;-) (stands). I am a...

'50s Adventures of Superman - Intro Redone

I remixed the classic '50s George Reeves' Superman Intro with cuts from Christopher Reeve's Superman, Brandon Routh's Superman Returns and the '90s Superman TAS cartoon. Kept all the original audio and matched it to new visuals, leaving enough of itself to still BE itself. For all those fans of ALL Supermans! ;-) Dedicated to the memory of George, Chris and Dana Reeve(s). Tom D'Alimonte Missing Pieces Nashua, NH http://Missing-Pieces.com

Schoolhouse Rock - I'm Just a Bill - Legally Blonde Remix

The classic Schoolhouse Rock remixed for the movies. I was going to just post the Legally Blonde 2 version of I'm Just a Bill, performed by Deluxx Folk Implosion... But then I started remixing the remix... with the original! So as an ode to the great original, you'll see it pop up within the live action. And along the way, I discovered a quick and easy way to transparently overlay video sources in Windows MovieMaker... a feature it 'doesn't' have! (I'll have a write that up sometime! :-) Tom...

The 12 Pains of Xmas - Twisted Christmas ~ Missing-Pieces.com style!

I do a lot of video editing for customers. Always had a vision of this song in my head... well, here it all is! ;-) Enjoy and Happy Holidays! (this is NOT one of those automated videos - I did all the picture gathering, cutting and pasting, timing, special effects management, using only Windows Movie Maker)

Calvin & Hobbes - Back in Time... with Snacks!

My attempt to utilize existing comic strips to create animation in a stuttered, simplistic style, not unlike reading the comics themselves. Doing this by adding as little as possible to the comic drawings themselves, cutting and pasting parts of the stills, including dialog, in cell-animation style, adding as few little bits of drawing and color as necessary, to complete the animation. Adding dialog using my own voice for both characters, but passing Calvin's speech thru Audacity to create a 'second' voice.

Bum or a Slob

This video shows and expresses what's going on in my buddy's life right now, being unemployed and trying SO hard to find a job and make things work! I gave him a hand creating the video from REALLY raw footage he took on a one shot basis! Amazing we brought it together at all, nonetheless IN ONLY 5 HOURS! :-)

Santa Claus

Another song from my friend who did "Bum or Slob". He got too jazzed doing that, he wanted me to do this one for him as well, but it was way too late so I had to throw him out! lol I did it later in an hour, right after midnight! (I'm great under stress and late night deadlines - it was Xmas Eve! ;-)
