how nice to stretch out into the weekend. a reminder of long days and late nights to come. enough time for a facetime art session with sister where we made experiments and took notes of our findings.
time for another may walk. grey and misty.
i saw billowy white blossoms.
pale green rimmed with a crown of pale yellow.
home to shoot more videos for class!
this is my permanent filming station since april. i’ve mentioned recently that i love my new camera bought especially for online class production. no additional lighting needed or mics. hallelujah! it’s a canon vixia HF G20. worth every cent. i’m using a vanguard alta pro tripod and a photek tripod extender. i recently stopped using imovie and finally bought final cut pro x editing software. i also use an app for FCPx called compressor 4.2.2. i don’t include the links because i’m not compensated in any way for any of the aforementioned products and i don’t necessarily recommend for the casual user.
i’ve been making online classes since 2009 and it’s taken a lot of trial and error to find the right equipment. someone asked about platforms in the comments recently so i’ll share about that too. i use wordpress dot org, and not a service specifically for distributing online content (like ruzuku.) online classes can of course also be hosted on regular password-protected blogs just as i used to do. there are many options.
thaz it! not a tutorial per se because i don’t have time or inclination for that, but i wanted to share because i would have loved this kind of information a few years back. the trial & error method can be a pain in the arse. ya know?
i’m off for a bit of time travel before bed.
see you crazy kids soon!
