After finally getting my first video blog up, I have been dragging on getting more done.
I have a ton of ideas, but it actually takes a lot of time to turn those ideas into something that I want to have living on the web forever. Work has been crazy and I have had a bunch of things to deal with at home, so I just haven’t found the time.
So I am almost ready to start shooting several more episodes… updates to come.
It took me a lot longer than I expected, but I finally got a first episode done that I am happy with. I am calling it “Gotta come from somewhere” and I have to thank Theo Carroll heartily for all the help he provided me to get this done.
Things are getting a bit ridiculous with the editing, and I need to cut it off soon. I never realized how easy it is to become obsessed with adding more and more to a video.
Today I think that I got the last bit of footage I need to finish… on my lunch break I took some shots down at the end of Bay Parkway, looking across the water. I also went over to my favorite park, Calvert Vaux, and got some nature shots that I needed. So in next day or so, I think I will have something to show for all this hustle.
Spring has sprung and I am trying to get my first episode done.
I have been doing a little bit of editing, trying to use the final couple of weeks of Theo’s course to really get something together.
I shot some stuff about me today. Not sure if I want to even use it. I do not know if telling people who I am really matters. My footage from a couple of weeks ago kind of sums up everything I want to say to introduce the blog, so the question is whether introducing me is even necessary.
After a couple of weeks of messing up in various ways, I finally got some footage that I am happy with. It was a cold, clear, sunny day and although it took me a couple of hours of sitting on a bench to get what I wanted, I think I have what I need for my first episode.
The focus of this blog has become pretty clear: I am going to talk about living things and where they come from. It is a big topic, but I think I have a lot to say on the topic.
I also got some more B-roll. I have been focusing on things around my neighborhood, random stuff that I figure I will find a use for.
