Week 5 already… If you’re just joining me and are wondering what you’ve missed, you can check out the last four weeks of this odyssey here.
It’s been over a month of fiddling with wires and capture devices, recording gameplay and re-recording gameplay, and fumbling around with thumbnails. I survived some very creative problems that required some unexpected solutions, and got some great thumbnail advice (aka, to use the program called GIMP) from Greg Leighton over at Flick and Mix. Of course, I’ve also had a slew of wonderful comments encouraging me to keep going, which have been much appreciated!!
Current State of Affairs
I recorded some videos… in the middle of the night…. So some of the commentary sounds like I’m whispering, but I was waiting to see if anyone came by to tell me to be quiet. BUT I have some videos!!
Ta da! Excuse me while I check this off my “bucket list”…
The plan (oh how quaint: I still think I can make plans with this project) is to post a few times a week, since I’ll be playing in more than 30 minute sittings, but I haven’t quite worked those bugs out yet. Since I’m still not sure how my “normal” recording schedule will look, I’m taking this opportunity when I have only two subscribers (thanks to The Shameful Narcissist and One Depressed Gamer!) to figure out a sustainable “rhythm” to posting.
- Patience, patience, patience. I’m usually pretty patient, but apparently “technology not working” pushes buttons that I didn’t even know I had.
- Keep your eyes focused on the goal. I got myself wrapped up in details (as I tend to do), and started to worry about this or that, but look I made videos and put them up on YouTube. That was the goal. If no one watches them, that’s fine, because I finally got it done. But seriously, if you want to watch them, that’s cool, too.
- I expected listening to my voice to prompt a thought of “I have a voice fit for silent movies,” but it’s not as horribly terrible as I thought it would be, so that’s something, at least. Got some room to grow, but hey, it’s a process.
I mentioned back in Week One (I think) that I’d post reviews of some of the equipment I’m using. So be on the lookout for reviews of all the tech stuff I’ve been dealing with the past few weeks!
Thanks for sticking with me! Comments are always appreciated, as always 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you soon!
