Creating Home Movies From Your Computer Chair

So how can you get started making movies if you don't have any fancy equipment? Most laptop computers come with built in webcams these days.

Simply find the webcam program on your laptop's desktop, open it and click the record button.

If your computer doesn't have a built in webcam, or you would like a better one, check out the following links below.

Most desktop computers don't have built in webcams.

NOTE: Even if you already have a built in webcam, it is still possible to add another one.

Also, most audio programs will automatically use your built in webcam unless you specify otherwise.

RECORD VIDEO WITH YOUR PHONE

If you have a smart phone, chances are that it has a decent built in camera.

The video quality in smart phones is getting better with each model.

It may not rival the quality of a professional video camera, but it is good enough to get the job done.
