Hello New Year and greetings to the online community. I'm excited to join the ranks of bloggers everywhere. This blog will cover various topics such as digital media, video, audio, writing, journalism along with ex-journalists and a host of other interesting tidbits.
I'm an avid reader too sometime I will share my thoughts about books I have read or am reading.
Now, on to the main event. Almost a year ago, I recorded a resume videotape and posted it on Youtube. It's time to bring it home to my blog and talk about the process of planning, scripting and posting a resume video.
First, I reached out to a good friend who is a videographer. He had access to a great studio. He generously donated everything so I had no out-of-pocket expenses. Thank you!!
My goals were to transfer my broadcast background to Youtube and to see what happened. That was it. I thought through the short script, which I initially wrote on index cards, then I memorized it by practicing aloud.
I had a lot of fun recording this -- we did it in two takes as I recall.
