Goat Video Review by Guest Blogger Ariel Morris!!

So awhile ago I made a video of my buck, Mega. I used a very helpful how-to on choosing the right editing software that my friend Ariel wrote on her blog about film making. I showed her the final product and she wrote the following post for me to share with my readers who want to make their own viral animal videos. 

Enjoy!
