This month of participating in the Video Per Day Experiment has passed so quickly. Here is today’s clip followed by a few thoughts:
As I mentioned, the experiment was quite enlightening. Here are some of the things that I learned:
- Anti-glare coatings may be more for the people looking at you than the person wearing the glasses. Sorry about that glare, I did try to reduce it as much as I could.
- Watching yourself on video helps to see your quirks (so many ums and closed eyes).
- Having a plan before pressing record is essential.
- Interesting people are everywhere.
- Many issues and problems are universal.
- The camera shows all the lines and wrinkles. It wasn’t all bad though–I look like my grandma and I think she would be proud that I continue to try new things.
- Putting things out into the universe means that local people will see them too. (Who knew?) The videos sparked conversations with several classmates.
- It became easier to be on camera every day.
- I am not a morning person, but it was easier to film in the mornings than at night. I will definitely use this knowledge for writing and other creative endeavors.
Would I do it again? Absolutely.
