I went into this year full of optimism despite my personal life being thrown upside down. It rapidly went down hill as the bad news kept coming, things started to get back on track in March, we all know what happened then!
The #VideoWalks initiative was put on the back burner, which was frustrating, however it made me realise how much I enjoy and missed creating videos of my mini adventures. 2021 themes are planned and I have set myself the challenge of talking to camera more. Wish me luck!
Smartphone Video Training
I’ve continued to work with companies offering training sessions and had the privilege of watching them create videos during the initial lockdown in March. My first live webinar took place in July and I’m looking forward to running more soon. Lockdown forced me to look at different ways to support organisations who want to introduce videos into the workplace. Although I miss the buzz of a training room it’s great supporting people with their videos from a far.
I volunteered with an amazing team to deliver the first virtual LnD Unconference, having never attended a face to face Unconference I wasn’t sure on what to expect and had to trust the process. I did just that and the day was a huge success, we raised over £900 for our chosen charities and coordinated a fully virtual experience which didn’t loose any of the magic of previous events. We were able to explore and experiment with digital collaboration tools and different video programs. The virtual event allowed us to invite to lots more people across the U.K. and they could jump in and out around their existing commitments. ￼
There are lots of exciting things in the pipeline and I can’t wait to share them with you. Look out for the new #VideoWalks themes and take part where you can. I hope to share lots of hints and tips which can help you create great video over the next 12 months. You never know I might get to run a course in person!
