Well people, I have some good news. I managed to gather up the energy needed to do more work on my video, and it went pretty well. Remember when I said I'd give no script a shot? Well, that didn't go very well. What happened (in lament's terms) is that I screwed up my lines too many times, and it's because I lack experience. Probably once I get more comfortable with being on camera, maybe my "do a video without a script" worry should go away.
Ironically, when I do my Hamlet soliloquy, I won't have a script to work with, and I'll be on my own when I do the shoot. Unlike the reviews, this particular video won't have a great deal of editing to do. It'll just be me reciting Hamlet's soliloquy with some background music to match (if anyone can refer me to a website with some music to fit, I'll make sure to add your name to the credits. Just head over to the contact page, use the tag "Hamlet Music" and a WORKING link, and I'll check it out. If I found what I like, your name goes on the credits).
I also did some recording this afternoon, and sadly, I had to read the script that was presented to me. I really wanted to do these videos without a script, but I'm afraid it would go much worse than planned. I'm willing to bet AVGN does his videos without a script. Come to think of it, does he use a script when he makes a video, or does his speeches come from his true feelings he has about the stuff he "reviews" (quotes referring to the games)?
