Friday Dog Vlog

I hate Goodbyes.
Today we say goodbye to Jamie. I couple of months ago I hired a summer intern and we feel like we just got to know him and now we have to say goodbye as he returns to school. Jamie has done a great job and he will be missed. Big Tommy was not sure about him at first. After a couple of ball throwing sessions Jamie quickly became Tommy's favorite person.

Tech Notes about the Video:
I used a screen capture software called Snapz Pro to create the little hand drawn intro header. It is about 40 seconds too long and is not really the best solution for a header ... it needs work. I need to work on my interviewing skills as well, and the sound is still too low. My advice to anyone wanting to experiment with video is to have fun and go easy on yourself. Video editing is hard. If my attempts do not get a lot better in about 2 months then I will stop ... yea I promise.

Thanks so much, I needed that pat on the back. I am just not happy yet with the quality of what I am doing on the vids. I enjoy making them, but I just want to be better at it. Everything worth doing seems to have a learning curve.

I think you're doing a great job! It is really hard! I do like what you've done with the intro. I've seen a couple of art videos where they speed everything up. I'm not sure how they did it but it might work for your intro header!

This was cool, Becca. I love the way you are so open in sharing your learning with us all. I simply dragged on the bar to accelerate the video as you were doing the video. By stating you thought it was too long you, in effect, gave me permission.
