So I have a semi-professional video now...check it out

7 replies
So I spent some time last night put together a nicer presentation for one of my CSS Lesson videos. I decided to create a catchy title, keep the video under 10 minutes like I promised, and hopefully will capture some people's email addresses with the form on the right.

Would love some feedback on the style of the video, the visual look of the video (including the logo and initial slides), and anything else you can mention.

I also link back to my portfolio in the footer.

Thanks,

    I like your simple and
    forward idea.

    Based on one video
    and subscription frame
    you initiate your business
    and generate subscrbers
    with interest in css - probably
    beginners.

    Nicely done. I'd also suggest slowing down the narration, and taking the time to edit out the "uhs" and verbal mistakes. In my humble opinion, that's the dividing line between "good" and "professional" quality.

    Keep up the good work.

      I thought it was pretty damn good...

      And, the clarity of the video was awesome!

        Thanks...Its a 9mb mp4 for a 9 min video..so not too shabby.

        I need to work on the audio and prevent the "pops" with my mouth being too close to the mic, and I should consider writing out a script of what to talk about. I HAVE to stray from the UH's and AH's type of thing. on one hand, I like being myself...it gives the video a personable feel..but at the same time I don't want to sound like a bumbling idiot.

        The flash quality on it though was like 55%.

      Thanks. You are absolutely right. If I "think" I am going to have a mistake..I just should stop talking, regain my compusure, and continue. I want this to flow and not be an overly edited video where you can tell I am editing places. Might as well redo it at that point.

    what do you guys think of the logo? I will probably add some vector art in there that represents the "teaching/lesson" side of things, but I whipped that up in 15 minutes last night trying to knock this thing out.
