In our last survey, we asked if anyone would be interested in watching WorldStart videos demonstrating our tips and tricks. A resounding 70% told us to go for it, so that’s what we did! (Err, are doing)
Well, we’ve made some progress, and it looks like we’re going to have something for ya in the next week or two. What we’re currently planning is a type of question and answer show. You send in your questions, we answer as many as we can each week. In addition, as we add new tips, we’re planning to add video demonstrations to them. We figure actually seeing how the heck we’re doing something should make it even easier to follow along.
So yeah, that’s the initial plan, but hey, if you have any ideas, we’d love to hear them – make sure you comment below.
Anyway, one of the fun things we’ve already done is to shoot the “intro” that we’re going to use at the start of each video. One of our staff members, Gretchen, is an amazing artist and after a pathetic combination of begging, groveling, and puppy dog eyes, we convinced her to do a cool chalk WS logo on our studio background.
We created a stop motion video by setting a digital camera up on an timer and having it pop a shot every 30 seconds while she worked – for a total of 128 individual shots! Then, we put them into a video, added a dash of Benny Hill, and, well, what do you think?
Like it? Yes? No? Maybe so?
Anyway, now you know one of the things we’re up to. We’re also planning a major change to the Computer Tips newsletter next week, so stay tuned.
