It was so bloody hot that I had to open a window.
Of course it was not hot at all, but I had sweaty hand, sitting there in front of a camera with next to it, a pillow with a piece of paper pinned on it, to show the questions that had to be answered.
My G.. what was it difficult in the beginning. The night before I couldn’t sleep and had the most marvellous ideas about how to make an interview-style-like documentary of my ‘365 Days of Golf’ plans. But than I choked. Getting up, walking around, swearing a bit (what you can hear on your recordings afterwards) and got my act together.
and than, suddenly, it comes out like a waterfall. In a natural way, with eeehs en oohs.
It took me three days to edit the whole thing. Pictures in my head showed me the way and I am pretty sure that if I had made it in Pinnacle studio 16 it would have been done in a day. But I am learning to edit in Adobe Premier Pro which is a huge program with a lot of possibilities. Takes a bit of time to learn all of it.
On the end I decided to also make a TRAILER version, because my expectations tells me that in the fast Facebook world seven minutes for an interview is far to long. So I found an other music theme on Free Music Archive with the correct Creative Commons license so that for sure I won’t get block or spammed by Youtube. And that’s takes also a couple of hours, to learn that, get it right and mention it right on your site and channel (to be honest I still have to do it properly).
When I posted it on Facebook I was very curious who would really click on the link to see the video and more interesting who would use the link to see the full 7 minutes.
I’am going to check my data in Google Analytics and be back with you.
In the mean while you may watch the TRAILER and the FULL video interview.
