Really, the only person who had hope was me, so I guess it’s “abandon all hope, ME who enter here”, and by “enter” I guess I mean “that project I had wanted to work on”.
After the on again, off again attempts to keep the “In The Car” series going in the wake of local hands-free driving laws enacted in my state last year, I had the bright idea of creating a video series that I could do at home. With a more static production environment, I thought I might be able to inject an additional layer of production value into the project.
So I rigged a green screen up in the basement, and employed my HD camera on a suitable placed tripod. I redirected the lights in the room to project properly against the screen, and set up a few additional lights to avoid casting a shadow on the screen itself.
All in all, the process went smoothly. Except for the part where I decided I hated both my voice and how I was showing up on camera.
So that put a nail in that coffin. I’ve since repurposed the rotator widget above to display “Featured” posts from the blog. But looking at it after this morning’s post, I guess not even THAT is working correctly.
So the re-branding of the site is off for the time being. I’ll continue to work along the same lines as I’ve been working along until such time as I get another bright idea for some way to enhance my offerings.
