So I had been entertaining the thought of doing vlogs for IMM for awhile now because it just seemed like it would be a fun thing to do and I thought it would be easy since my laptop has a webcam that I can record on. Haha. Little did I know it would be a little trickier than just popping open my laptop and hitting record. My experience went something like this:
1st Vlog Attempt: Bad lighting. Good thing I realized this like 2 minutes into the video. Hehe.
2nd Vlog Attempt: At the very end of the movie my computer goes into screensaver mode and stops recording!!! CURSES!!!!
3rd Vlog Attempt: Computer goes into screensaver mode AGAIN. Needless to say I changed the screensaver settings this time....
4th Vlog Attempt: WAY too long. It was like nearly 20 minutes. I talk too much.....
5th-6th Vlog Attempt: Still too long!
7th Vlog Attempt: Finally short enough! But what is this? THE SOUND DIDN'T RECORD?!?!?! GAHHHH. :/
8th Vlog Attempt: FINALLY!!!!!! SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
As you can see it was way more complicated then I anticipated. Hehe. I still don't know why that one video didn't record sound.... mysterious. Clearly my computer hates me or something. :P The important thing is that I actually did get one that's presentable though right? Hope you guys like it! (and for the record I realized AFTER I recorded this that Dutch isn't Danish because the Dutch are from Holland and the Danish are from Denmark. Fail. :P) Oh and am I the only one who thinks that YouTube must use the most disgusting part of the video to put as like the main video still??? Gehhh.
