The Final Countdown: A #NASATweetup Journal
#2: My video inroduction
So the folks over at The Space Crowd are working on a video project and asked for some video submissions from the Tweetup attendees. I’m no videographer by any means but they just wanted a quick who-are-you introduction, where you tell everyone about your feelings regarding being chosen for the event. I figured, easy enough.
About twenty takes later, this is what I had.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
It’s surprisingly difficult (for me anyway) to talk coherently for several minutes straight with nobody else there. Talking to a person about a topic is one thing, but I usually don’t talk to my computer (not counting the colorful speech reserved for when my Illustrator crashes and I forgot to save.) So it felt a bit unnatural, but it’s real, and I think that’s what they were looking for. For better or worse, it’s reality – and that’s what is so cool about the Tweetup events: it will be 150 real people, from all over the world, coming together to witness an amazing and historic event that will be remembered forever.
I tried to get that point across at some part of the video but my writer’s on strike so I did the best I could. 🙂
