Well, that took longer than expected… which, conversely, was expected.

Rendering time. Forgot about rendering time.

And I’m way rusty on editing. (Not that I was ever all that good to begin with… still getting the hang of Premiere Pro now that I have it.)

So, nothing at all fancy this time around. After I cut out all the ridiculous pauses and fiddling with the camera and uselessly repeated/mumbled bits it clocked in at just under five minutes. Right on track. (Yay! Something that went smoothly!)

Definitely going to have start doing these a day in advance and/or getting a few lined up when I have a chance over weekends and whatnot. There’s no way I’ll be able to crank one of these out like this if I’ve got things to do after work. (I suppose I could always just go straight from my phone… but I’m going to need to get a lot better about talking to the camera before that’s sensible.)

About Kier

I've been on the web since about 1994. I have a background in a lot of things, including a five year stint as a journalist and over a decade of helping people get their message out to the world.

I write on a number of subjects--everything from relationships to personal development to politics and every day life. I hope you get something worthwhile out of it.


  1. Saw the first ‘cast. Image and sound quality were overall good, I’d adjust the microphone a little but to get rid of a faint hiss on the phones. I think that the hat has kind of become iconic, maybe you wear it on the next one. Perhaps you could detail your books or stroes for the next one?

    • Pretty sure I know what was causing the hiss. Going to try something a little different tomorrow and, if that doesn’t fix it, I’ve got a different mic. First time I’m using this one inside somewhere relatively quiet… only other time I used it was at a wedding. 🙂
