In my previous post here, I mentioned that the week 2 assignment is to record a video showing my face. The video needs to be at least 30 seconds and you can talk about anything you want.
So I have finally made my first video, or should I say the first video that I am showing my face? I have made some videos in the past to promote affiliate products in other niches but those are based on screen capture where I talk over it.
Initally, I was thinking of using Google Hangout to make this video but somehow I couldn’t get my webcam to work. So I decide to use my mobile phone instead.
I never realized how difficult it can be to make this kind of video. I actually retake myself over 20 times. And the final result is still horrible. In fact, I can’t bring myself to watch this video. I cringe when I see myself speaking in front of the camera.
At first, I was thinking of retaking the video a few more times. But at last, I decided not to go after perfectionism. There are more important tasks to be done.
You can probably tell that I don’t know what to say in front of the camera. Maybe I should have prepared a script beforehand but I decide to just speak whatever comes to my mind.
Anyway, here is the video.
