Hey, it’s been a little while since I made a video, but I’m back! For an entire month! All during June I’m posting a video every day – or at least I’m trying to. It’s called Giugno which is Italian for June. Why Italian? Eh, it made the project feel special more than anything else. SO, why am I doing this? I mean, after my failure of a Vlogtober last year, why put this kind of pressure on myself from a hobby?
Short version: it’s because I really like making these videos and talking out loud to my camera.
Long version: I like making videos, I like making things in general. I like challenging myself, I want to get better at making videos, and I want to get better at editing videos. I bought Adobe Premiere recently, so I need more practice with it. In my 2016 goals video I talked a little bit about the fear of failure and not letting it get me down and prevent me from doing new things. This is one of those new things.
Throughout June expect a new video from me every day. And I’ve got some good ones coming.
Grazie per guardare, alla prossima, ciao. (That’s just my usual ‘thanks for watching, I’ll see you next time, bye’ but in Italian so it goes with the theme).
I’ve gotten a lot of comments saying that I talk too fast, and while I’m trying to work on that it’s just not in my nature. I’m a New Yorker, I talk fast. So as a compromise, I’m adding captions onto my videos and posting all the scripts on my blog.
