I’m very honored to be in good company – others in the series include:
I was playing with different microphones this morning – testing out four microphones for podcast & videocast quality, and decided to do a video test, too.
So here are 4 mics, plugged into my MacBook Pro laptop. Video is the cheesy-but-easy PhotoBooth. Microphones I tested were:
- Samson C01U
- Blue Snowball
- Bescor TCM-88 lavalier mic
- … and the Macâ€™s internal mic
So… which one do you think sounds the best? The worst? Were any/all/none adequate? Why? Thanks!
At the beginning of my Video on the Web presentation, I made a quick video to show how easy it is to create video content. I asked for one takeaway from Internet Librarian, and quickly interviewed three session attendees.
Here’s the final video!
David Free and I taught our Podcasting & Videocasting Bootcamp seminar again, and it was a blast! Hereâ€™s the video our workshop attendees created.
From Michael’s last post you can see that Michael and I recorded a snappy little library song last week. We are really proud of the work weâ€™ve produced and now YOU get a chance to be in the video!! It’s a jumpy little ditty about library futures, technology and how we will succeed as libraries.
Please listen to this short snippet of the song and then … shoot a brief video of you singing along! That’s all it takes! You can use a web cam or any other camera you like and send it to the email below. It should only take a few minutes on your end, and after we get the videos, weâ€™ll take the best and put them in the video we are hard at work on! Of course, also feel free to send other videos that might go along with the title/theme of the song â€œhi-fi sci-fi library,” too (costumes are very welcome by the way!:)
So join in the fun and star in a video with us! This is your official invite! We are looking forward to seeing YOU in our upcoming video!
Here is a link to the very short snippet to sing along with (you can download it even if you want). The â€œhi-fi sci-fi libraryâ€ part is what we really need to see you singing.
If you have you have a webcam, you really should be emailing your video to:
michael.libraryman *At Sign**gmail.com
Please send your clips in to the above address no later than August 24th, 2008. We are really looking forward to seeing you in the video with us!!!!!!!!!
