This week I have been getting the second episode together. It is going to be on survival and survival’s nemesis, death.
Where I live is a pretty perfect location for this episode, as dead people are all around me.
Below are some study shots and stills of B-roll that I took a few days ago…
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.
I was talking to Theo via email about my project and he suggested that I set up a channel on Vimeo to host all my episodes, so I got that set up here.
A channel with one show, not much to speak about yet.
Theo’s course came to an end about a month ago (thanks so much Theo for all that you have taught me!), and the last week was on uploading managing videos on Vimeo and embedding them on our sites. Now that I have a first episode of my video blog that is pretty much ready, I had to get a Vimeo account in order to get this all up on the web.
So I have a Vimeo account here.
Theo says that Vimeo is superior to YouTube so for now I am following his advice and sticking with Vimeo… but I will consider whether I need to get these on YouTube at some point too.
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.

Editing turns out to be a lot more involved process than I anticipated.
There is so much that I could add once I have all the basic sequence of my video blog episode down. I am not sure where to stop.
At this rate I should have about three episodes done by the end of the year.
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.
