Yes, today's blog is presented to you today by my inner nerd. Anyone who knows me knows that I love technology, particularly computers and new niffty software. Why use old software and accomplish a task in a few minutes when you can spend money on new software, spend hours attempting to learn it, and then more hours attempting to do something useful with it! Ah, bliss.
I have been working with Adobe's After Effects software to make a little animated thing called a bug. You usually see these on a TV program where, during the show, a little animated logo appears on the lower right hand corner of the screen for a few seconds. This little guy is called a bug.
I have managed to create a really bad animated logo and I am thrilled to have gotten this far! Once I have an acceptable one done, I will use it in my videos as branding device. I will bet I could close 5 deals in the time it will take to make my bug!
These types of exercises are really fun for me. I know very few people will spend the time to do these types of things but it does set my work apart from others. I look at this as a hobby that also helps my work. Ok, I have to rein in my nerdness and go show homes today, but tonight back to making bugs!
