Day 91 - That Video is Done!

Yesterday I talked about the travails of making a video with inadequate equipment and needless delays. In spite of all of this, I was making excellent progress.

Well, I’m proud to say that the video is done and posted at http://www.writingformarketers.com and that you can see just what the fuss was all about.

It seems that today was just as filled with strangeness, mostly over looking for the right balance of light on the videos. Rain was predicted for today but it didn’t happen much in Irvine. However, the clouds kept moving around, changing the light in my office from moment to moment. I actually reshot several of the segments with different light before deciding to use the originals. And of course there are all the retakes and retakes of retakes and positioning shots and so forth. And no, I did not keep the outtakes.

After all the fine tuning I put it up late tonight. It’s the most complex one I’ve done yet and it’ll be followed in a few days by another just as complex.

This has been quite an experience. It’s a challenge to do a complex video with all kinds of transitions and illustrations. It’s also been rewarding. Quite different from doing three minutes on the Flip Video and tossing it up on YouTube.

If you happen to pop over there to watch it, be sure to leave me a comment.

And now on to the next one.
