Lights, camera, action

Last Update: Feb 23, 2017


Video had long remained a mystery to me. Over decades I had played with it, distracting myself more than anything, and surprising family members occasionally.

Now I am at a time where video productions might be the means of prospering my on-line business. Keep them short and to the point, with enough variety to entertain and inform prospective buyers.

Video clips, stills, transitions, audio tracks, practice with video editors; all within my reach and capability - a whole new world.

Do I appear in my own how to series? Or do I find a professional substitute? What about my glove puppet, Kevin the Koala, being promoted to the starring role. Clients might avoid my rugged looks - but they will tell their life story to a stuffed animal. Cyril the Ground Hog will definitely want his turn as talent.

Camera, lighting and background produce a set suitable for my productions. My latest find, a video light with 160 leds, along with its color change filters puts me in a new world.

What if I write a script and then use Text to Speech? Then I can have the commentary read perfectly by a computer voice, man or woman, a choice of national accents, without human hesitations. I have a preference for US woman at slightly faster than normal pace - seems to have a little level of irritation that demands attention. Previous posts might be re-purposed as scripts; lots of possibilities.

With small steps and a written production schedule I am now a movie maker.
