You Will Need
- Video camera
- Video-editing software
- Computer microphone
- Voice-over tool or audio program
Take lots of footage
Videotape your dog when they're barking and chewing. You'll need about 30 minutes of footage of them with their mouth moving.
Load it onto a computer
Load the footage onto a computer.
Open up a video-editing program and edit the raw footage down to the best 3 minutes or so, using 20 to 30 second chunks.
Work out a script
Write a script that matches their mouth movements as closely as possible.
Record the voice
Record the voice into a computer microphone as you watch the edited video. If your video-editing program has a voice-over tool, you can add the voice directly to your movie. If not, open up a dedicated audio program and record the VO separately. Then import the audio file into your editing program and combine the audio and video.
Show off your talking-dog video clip to your friends and family.
