It’s almost Christmas, which is supposed to be a period of relaxing with a big glass of something, and we’ve just been hit by two massive earthquakes again today, which is not what we need two nights before Christmas. There might not be much sleep done tonight.
Anyway, over the past few weeks the digital editor at work and I have been working on doing regular video interviews: it’s been something we’ve been talking about for a while but never really did anything about it. The first video we did two weeks ago was a video of Batman Arkham City, my Game of the Year, and it was purely game footage. All good so far.
The following week the digital editor told me we should do a video review but with me talking camera, which I was a little hesitant about. I’m fine when it comes to writing stories and stuff but I don’t really do “to-camera” stuff. I don’t think I have the face for it. Eventually he persuaded me to do and we decided on Nintendo Wii game Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
While I don’t think it’s a bad first effort there are definite areas I can improve on: shifting my eyes every time someone came into the room where we were filming is one of them. Secondly, I could just be a bit more relaxed and not try so hard. I just look nervous (and a fair bit was cut out as it was too bad to use).
Anyway, here’s the link for the video. If you like looking at comedy, have a gander. Leave a comment, too, if you like.
You’ll also find our other video there as well (Batman Arkham City).
Let’s hope tonight is a quite night and the ground decides to stay calm. Stay strong, Christchurch.
