Start Small: The Video Log

Had idea today. Got Vickie’s camera and tripod out at 10:30PM. Made test recording for zoom and position. Recorded four takes. Discovered camera only outputs video in .MOV format which Windows Movie Maker doesn’t edit. Bitched on Facebook, which resulted in friend suggesting Videopad. Downloaded Videopad. Edited clip and uploaded to YouTube.

Result of around half an hour’s work: Confidence boost. Nagging fear of reception. Improvement in video editing skills, plus knowledge of new program.

And…

Are you producing?

What’s the smallest you’ve started something at? How big did it get?
