I'm in a video e-course Zero to Video Hero, to get you comfortable being in front of a camera. Many of you probably know I do a lot of videos on youtube. If you have seen them you'd know, I rarely put my face in them. This challenge has been an experience because I've had to put my face up there everyday.
Simply put, the program, asks you a question each day and you give a video answer. The video must be under three minutes. You then post your video in a private video group. Sometimes I get responses for my video but most of the time I look at other videos and see how they are performing the challenge.
During one of the challenges, we were told to make a list. 'A list?' I thought scratching my head. So I watched some of the other videos first and found many animations. I also discovered a new program called Animoto that gives you a free 30 second video. I then remembered a post I made about 10 ways to shake bad juju. I knew I couldn't list 10 in 30 seconds, but four is doable. I did and found I still had more room, so I added text so one could go to my blog.
I thought the video came out fantastic and bonus ... it was advertising a blog posting. This was not my intention, but I thought, wow, what a great tool to keep your old posts fresh. The video is below, I hope you enjoy.
