2017-05-26 – Friday is filming day.

It’s Friday, and Friday is filming day.   I started on the script for my vlog yesterday evening, while I was waiting for my wife to come home, but I still have a fair bit of work to do on it before it’s fit for purpose.  I crack on with it whilst listening to PopMaster, and by the time I’m happy with it, it’s 12pm.  I have a lot of tremor on my left hand side today, but I’m not surprised – I really overdid it down at the allotment yesterday.  My voice is also quite weak, and I can see I’m going to have trouble getting footage that I am happy with.

I load my script into the teleprompter app on my iPad, and rehearse it a couple of times.  It seems to be about the right length, so without further ado, I set up the camera and tripod in the lounge, adjust the lighting and film myself.  I’m not as bad in front of the camera as I feared I was going to be and, although I had half a dozen takes, I manage to get sufficient raw footage to be able to proceed with loading it onto my MacBook and editing it.  I have edited, uploaded and published my latest vlog before my wife arrives home from work, which I’m very happy about.  I even managed to walk the dog (again) and water the vegetable plants down at the allotment!

My wife arrives home, laden with groceries for the weekend ahead (including a few beers).  I’m feeling exhausted again, so I think another early night is called for.

  1. I’m so glad to finally have a place to leave you a message. I think we have quite a lot in common; PD, DBS and CBD, to start with. Would you be willing to share your email address with me and connect that way? I think you can get my email address from your website. The PD slows everything down so I wouldn’t be writing a lot but I have a few questions and comments I would like to share with you.
