What I learned today from multicam vlog shoots

I've recorded a bunch of multicam shoots over the last 22 years. Most have been recording single cameras then put those cameras together. However, they run continuously. Much, much easier to sync. Today, I was sporadic when recording. I tried to shoot like I would a sitcom - that did not work as well. I …

“Work-work-work” – Hoban Washburne

I was having issues processing all of the video I needed. I hooked up a second keyboard to make macros for editing faster. AND I found out my mid-2011 iMac would accept 32GB RAM... soooooooooooo I upgraded my ram from 20 to 32. You wouldn't think 12GB would make much of a difference - you …

My daily routine

I've had many daily routines through the years. Today I modified my daily routine to cover a lot of time to do filming and working on projects as well as editing. I have requirements for my day:yogameditateself confidence workwalk 2-5 miles30 minutes on a stationary bikeTRX (suspension trainer) workout for upper and lower bodyPull up …

What I didn’t consider about vlogging

I have three cameras running and my phone that I talk into when I want to make a small note - sometimes I talk directly into one of the other cameras. All of this is super easy to sync with Adobe Premiere. No worries there. Two cameras are on tripods and the third, the Crosstour, …

Blogging about vlogging

I'm a planner so this is where I get some thoughts out while I'm getting my video equipment squared away while also getting footage for the first vlogs to come out. I've decided to film each segment and pull them together over a week then schedule releases. That's mostly because the segments are themed. I've …

Week of Tests and Relaxing

I spent the last week testing each of my different cameras in different situations to check for picture quality, audio quality, size of files, and more. I also spent it relaxing in Florida - in addition to daily work I needed to do. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the audio I needed for several videos because …

Burn Notice Transitions First Episode and My First Vlog

The first episode I've worked on to completion is actually season 1 episode 5 (s1e5). After screen captures and edits the voice over took about 12 minutes or so to record. I'm not sure how I should actually display these. My initial thought was to show all of the transitions in sequence from the episode …

First Vlog with Transitions and Issues

I'll also be shooting my test vlog starting next Monday night. I've been recording daily messages and I planned to do a couple of different items weekly. I think I'm going to work out the issues with the three different cameras first. I have an iPhone, GoPro-copy, and a Nikon D3200. Each has it's own …
