I really enjoyed making this video. It took a while to create because there were a lot of clips and a lot of people that I didn't actually know very well during filming. So, I had to go back and research and find out who they were and they are all extremely talented.
I'm very impressed by Kevin Rose from Digg.com for being on the edge of media and for growing into a strapping young lad.
I had a lot of fun talking to Jamie from internetfamo.us
I also really love Sarah from Pop17.com who is just the sweetest thing, as is Andrew from Rocketboom - such delightful, kind and honest people.
I really enjoyed editing this because I usually am very impatient and just throw up the clips in the order I shot them, do lots of jump cuts and thats it... Now, I know there was nothing amazing in this video, but the fact that I sat for a while and tried out different ways of presenting this and adjusted colours, sound levels and looked at the limited amount of effects I could create using iMovie HD, means that the love for creating videos of my life is coming back.
It's no longer about YOU anymore, its back to being about me, FINALLY! Now, I can enjoy myself.
You see! I knew that once CommunityChannel took over in Subscribers, as she rightfully should, that the world would right itself. Phew, I really can't explain it all to eloquently, but I just feel so relaxed about this whole Online World now.
I also decided to go back and look at about 5 of my old videos, and boy OH boy have I been hard on myself... I wasn't that bad for a vlogger who really had no motivation to do anything with this site. I was having fun, you can see I'm having fun and though my face does look weird, it always will, I have got to stop beating myself up about how I look on camera, because its not that bad. I'm okay.
Revelation people: I am okay.
I guess, I was going through some insecure moments about my looks and now I just enjoy a good quality steak too much to care.
...I had something else to say...but I need sleep...
