Today I posted my first video promotion to youtube. Everyone tells me that video is the best place to promote yourself and I’ve been itching to do more video work anyway so I decided to start with some basic promotional videos. I have to keep in mind that this is my FIRST video like this and there are lots of things that could be better. I figured that I should just put it out and get it in the “done” pile. That way I can move onto my next project. I know that I can only get better.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not bad. I’m a little bland in the way I’m speaking and there isn’t much to the subject but it’s a start. I can now move on to the next video and see how much I can get out of that. There are already a lot of projects in the works anyway so adding video (which is a big commitment) is hard because I don’t think that way. I think of still images that I can build up over time and turn into something. Kind of like cooking vs baking. Baking, to me, requires you to follow a recipe or things will turn out bad. Cooking allows flexibility to change things around, add in new things and make changes. Video is baking. You need a plan and know where you want to end up.
I’m hoping to get some help in future projects. I just need a crew of people close by I can count on. I’ll keep growing.
