How to Build and Fire a Medieval Trebuchet

Who would not want to build their own Trebuchet and rain down destruction on various targets in their backyard? I know I did. Luckily, I got a Trebuchet kit from my wife for Christmas. The below video is the result of that and one I put together for a class I am currently taking on Desktop Video Production. The assignment was to make a five minute video on a topic of our choice. It had to have x-number of transitions, background music, narration and video effects. That is why there are so many crazy transitions in the video.
Believe me, shooting it is way more fun that watching me shoot it. That doesn’t bother me because I am having the fun. However, you too can have as much fun as me. The Trebuchet I have is a kit available from Oakland Ballistics on Amazon.

The background music is from an awesome Celtic band I found a while back called The Gothard SIsters.  They have several albums out already and a new one is due out this coming summer.
