I’m trying videos. by ben | Oct 3, 2013 | General | 10 comments I enter the world of video posts. Gotta figure out those thumbnails. LATEST RELEASES Dumb White Husbands vs Zombies: The Weekend Young Adventurer’s Alphabet 10 Comments George Hilbert on October 3, 2013 at 1:31 pm Hi Ben….Your voice is fine. The background is nice. You are photogenic enough to make it work. The only advice I would have for you is to look at the camera more. You tend to have your eyes down, probably on your copy. Most on air talent has a teleprompter or cue cards behind the camera, forcing them to look that way. Anyway, great effort. I will look forward to more videos, even though I don’t mind reading, as you well know… Reply ben on October 3, 2013 at 1:41 pm I didn’t like the way it was looking at me. Reply Anne Francis Scott on October 3, 2013 at 8:02 pm Yep, cameras can be intimidating things, staring blankly back at you with that one, BIG eye. But you gotta show it who’s boss! Reply ben on October 3, 2013 at 9:17 pm Oh, I think it knows. Reply ben on October 4, 2013 at 7:28 pm I also wanted to thank you George. That’s the first time I’ve been called photogenic “enough.” Reply George Hilbert on October 5, 2013 at 12:44 am Hey Ben…..LOL…..I think I remembered that from my days of making a few instructional videos…The guy who came in to shoot us split the people up into groups. One was deemed “photogenic enough to be on-air talent”. It was actually a compliment, because they were not very kind to the ones who did not meet that standard….LOL Reply Karla on October 3, 2013 at 7:49 pm Stupidly entertaining. My favorite kind. I like the voice and photogenic-ness. Good job. Reply ben on October 3, 2013 at 9:17 pm Thank you, Karla. Reply Diane Ferguson on October 5, 2013 at 6:42 pm Ben, You always make me laugh! I love all the things you say–starting as far back as that family Christmas letter you sent out a thousand years ago! BTW, what’s up with the white cooking timer on the side book shelf–your left side? Sorry, couldn’t help checking out the space your are in. 🙂 Reply ben on October 5, 2013 at 7:34 pm That would be the “time out” timer. It gets a lot of use.
