A few months ago, I wrote a blog about when I'd be making videos. Well, the news is that the videos are coming sooner than I expected. But there's a catch: I have to do some practice first before I get started with the videos.
One thing to keep in mind is that I'm not making these videos for fun. I'm making these videos as part of my portfolio. I want future employers to see my work (even if it does suck, at least I have proof that I've done this), and I want to convince them that this is what I want to do.
Speaking of my portfolio, am I going to have a YouTube channel? The answer is maybe. I will only do this on two conditions: the first being that the account is verified (meaning it really is me that's doing this). The second being that YouTube gives me my creative freedom.
So what exactly am I going to be making? Well, like the blogs you're reading, and the articles I've posted on Examiner.com, I will be making videos based on these, except that I'd be going into much more depth. It may sound like a boring grind, but now I'll have the power to do a first person review rather than a third person review (I'm also aware that I've done some of the blog posts in first person, but like I said, more depth).
I will also be making some short films based on some of my writing (hint: one of the poems that's on my portfolio will be my first short film).
With all this said, I'm looking forward to creating videos. I don't want this to be for fun, I want to get into a career in the multimedia field (hopefully in the Twin Cities), and I want to use both my writings and my videos as my portfolio to show employers.
To conclude the whole thing, what's going to be my first video? I'll give you a hint: Move the GLOW!
