I love the commercial that asks: If Bill Gates, Micheal Dell, and Steve Jobs created products that changed the world in their garage, why can’t you? I responded: I can and will!
I have a home office, but my children are too noisy to make videos. It is difficult to wait for them to go to sleep, to stop tattling, and to wait for them to sit down and be quite. Once I start on a project, I often work until midnight or later, but I get distracted by other “time consumers”. I have to grade papers too!
I am launching my On-Demand Lecture Series this month. I must make several professional quality videos. I needed a recording studio. So, on April 5, 2014, I decided to use the garage as my recording studio.
Using my new studio, I have worked until midnight on April 5, 6, and 7, conducting research, watching videos on YouTube, and practicing what I learned from the videos. Tuesday was not pleasant because I had two bags of stinky trash in the garage. Yet I created my first advertisement called “Advertisement for Writing Essentials 101 5.7.14” (see previous posts) using Keynotes, Premier Pro, and iMovie.
The first video was good, but the one I posted tonight was much better. Watching a 4:36 second video by AllAboutMac27 was life changing. I learned how to eliminate Premier Pro and incorporate iMovie. It sounds complicated, but thanks to Royalty Free Music.com, AllAboutMac27 and Northern Tech, I was able to quickly create a professional quality 51 second video.
It is amazing what you can learn from two 4-9 minute videos. I am pumped about producing my own on-demand lecture videos.
