The first of the three videos:



Normally I'll try to have the videos available from my .Mac account, however the 640x480 version of this one is 343MB. The 320x240 video is only 20.5MB though, and the quality is still somewhat better than it looks on YouTube. You can get it here: Video 1

Normally I'll try to have the higher quality videos available from my .Mac account, however the 640x480 version of this one is 343MB, which is over a third of my allowable storage space. Fortunately the 320x240 video is only 20.5MB and the quality is still somewhat better than the YouTube video. You can get it here: Video 1 link.

I've found that even worse than the export time is coming up with something to say for five minutes. It seems that when I'm not actually recording I can think of plenty of things to say, but when the mic is on it all flitters away. Last night after about 20 takes and false starts I reached the point where I felt like I was a mumbling moron and stopped a bit earlier than planned. And that was only on the audio for the first movie. As a result I had to extend the end music quite a bit longer than The Coconut Monkeyrocket intended.

The remaining two videos will be posted later later today if I find myself amazingly eloquent, or as the week goes by. If I do this week's theme – "Red" – I won't be recording it.

whatcha need to do here, see, is do up the video, watch it, SCRIPT what you want to say and then record that separately. I could help you with that.

this is very cool! I enjoyed it and your talking, the music is pretty cool and goes with it well though! I have had this problem talking on camera and it's very diconcerting to suddenly feel self conscious. You did good dude!!!
Thanks for your comment, I always like to hear what you have to say.
