My first video. Thing of beauty… just kidding. I talk about whats going on, particularly at my kitchen table. Recording video of yourself is not as easy as it seems, and this was actually my first take. I ended up blabbering for 7 minutes, so if your watching this for 2 minutes and you feel yourself getting extremely bored, please shut it off! But if you find me to be fun to listen to, have 7 minutes to kill, or just find me attractive, go ahead and watch it. Let me know what you think.
My first video, from my kitchen table. It’s a thing of beauty.
Things learned: Less = more when shooting video. Be concise and clear. Save longer chats for a podcast.
Eye Contact: This was tough for me, although I think I did okay. Its tough to stare into a red light and talk, but thats where your audience is. At one point I actually moved closer to the camera to reinforce eye contact.
