I gear up to watch my Toronto Maple Leafs play the big, mean Boston Bruins.
I am embarrassed.
I only notice that the “meat” of my video was out of focus after it was too late. It was too late to re-shoot it.
There is a big lesson here video kiddies: Check your work before moving on to the next scene.
On those cold cold winter days in Northwestern Ontario a warm coffee goes a long way.
It’s -27 Celsius with the wind right now as I publish this. Yikes.
Special thanks to my buddy Anthony who helped me with my dolly shots.
It was too late to record a video with my iPhone. So I settled for a ScreenCast with ScreenFlow.
I quickly made a background in Keynote and then to a 1080×720 screenshot of it with Skitch.
The voice over was recorded on my Roland R-05 digital recorder and then processed in Adobe Audition. I was surprised how much of what I recorded was never used in the final production.
I used Skitch again to take a few screenshots.
Then I edited it all together and presto.
Environment Canada issued a weather warning for 25 cm of snow. That’s 10 inches or thereabouts.
I’m a little tired and burnt out after a 12 hour day but I’m keeping up with my commitment to put out one video every day for the month December.
Day 2 of my vlog challenge is about how easy it is to forget about having quality sound when recording videos. That is a no-no.
In this video I head outside into the wind and show you how to make an inexpensive windscreen for your iPhone that will eliminate moderate wind noise.
I decided to start a 31 day Vlog challenge for myself. I love to make silly videos and the best way to get better is to keep making them.
In the past I have done a couple of audio challenges. (30 Days Of AudioBoo) This time around I thought I would tackle video.
I have really enjoyed watching some people’s Vlog’s and my hope is that YOU will enjoy my Vlog too.
Here is a brand new little video I made for my dinner party gang. I’ll break it down for you after the break. Now just sit back and be scared.
- filmed entirely on the iPhone (accept for 3 seconds)
- edited entirely on the iPhone with the fantastic iMovie App
- the footage is taken from what I had available in my camera roll
- I am NOT a pyscho killer in real life
