Thoughts on Videoblogging

Videoblogging is hard. Okay, really, it’s not that difficult — it’s just more labor-intensive than normal blogging.

I’ve got a basic script for the first videoblog post, and tonight I do my primary shoot. Post-production may take a little longer, but I have the still imagery put together, so at least that’s out of the way.

I’ve started working with GarageBand in a way that’s meaningful, instead of just noodling around, and have an interesting techno track that’s forming up. Good beat, mixed with strings, piano, synth, and some ambient noise. Going to work in some more elements tonight. I’m really pleased with how it’s coming along and it should work with the script nicely.

Right now, the plan is to start assembling a collection of techno-esque tracks to use in these video pieces. Eventually, I’ll be releasing them as free downloads under the Creative Commons.
