It’s a most unusual story, as you’ll hear in my video and read below!
Learning how to make a video started for me with non-copyrighted footage. I hadn’t even reached the point where I had the
guts nerve confidence to simply point and shoot a simple video on my iPhone.
As a writer trying to learn about video, I started off slow. Among other things, I used the intro to an old TV series and added (what I hoped were) funny captions to it.
Hi! I’m going to give you some tips today for greater productivity as a writer. This is especially important for somebody like myself who is suffering from a disorder that affects my energy level, and I think a lot of us deal with that. It’s not just me. It’s having the energy to deal with so much information and stuff that’s going on today and things to do can be really wearing on a person. So here are a few productivity tips that will help you, I hope, with your writing.
Okay, this is a bit of an exaggeration! 🙂 But only slightly. Dystonia really does wear one down a whole lot. Have you ever heard of dystonia? Did you know that it can occur post-stroke? Were you aware that absolutely no research is being done on post-stroke dystonia?
That’s because the condition is so rare. Lucky us, huh? 🙂 But I digress …

That’s simplifying things a bit, since quality sound is an important component of filmmaking, as are a few other matters, such as choice of lens, postproduction colorization, and editing skills.
