Living in a household of all boys, you probably can guess that we are all obsessed with superheroes. One super hero in particular my boys are especially fond of is Spiderman. Ever since they were little guys, they have been obsessed with this character. And like any true super hero fan, any time a new action movie comes out they want to be one of the firsts to see it. The Amazing Spider-man 2 is now available on Blu-Ray combo pack (which includes Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD Copy) in Walmart stores nationwide and online for $24.96 (that’s 39% off the list price) with 100 minutes of extras plus 13 deleted scenes.

As a Walmart Mom, I was recently informed about the new Amazing Spiderman “Be A Hero” Contest where one can win awesome prizes for their school. The contest began on August 5th, 2014 and runs until September 14, 2014 so there is still time to enter! To participate and enter the contest: first upload a video to YouTube explaining why your school is “amazing” then tweet the link to your live YouTube video using the hashtag #BeAHeroContest. One of the awesome prizes for the grand prize winner includes a visit to your school from Spider-man. For complete contest details plus awesome mobile and desktop wallpaper downloads for the kids, check out Spiderman “Be A Hero” contest page at walmart.com.

Creating a video may seem a bit intimidating to some, but it can be quite easy if you follow a few simple tips. Here are a few basic video tips I learned when I first starting making videos to post on my own YouTube channel:

3 Tips for a Great Video:

  • Pay Attention to your Background: nothing is worse than trying to hear someone’s message over top of a lot of background noise or being distracted by what is happening behind the person talking. Cars zooming past in the background, a barking dog, or even a loud air conditioner can all take away from your video’s message. Try to reduce background noise as much as possible when filming like turning off the air conditioner or moving away from the AC vent so that your mic won’t pick up the whirling air noise. Reduce background distractions by filming in front of a blank wall.
  • Shoot Your Video in a Well Lit Area: another video fail is having poor lighting, it’s important to be able to see your subject in your video. So film in a well lit room or if you can, film outside in natural daylight.
  • Take the Time to Edit: don’t let the word edit intimidate you, most computers come with some form of basic video editing software there are even apps on smartphones that can edit footage shot with your cell phone camera. Use these programs to cut out unwanted footage, add titles, transitions, and piece together your story.
  • Who is your favorite super hero?
