This is a video entry for a contest I'm in. I expect to re-do it after the contest group critiques it but thought I'd share it here too. The rules are; keep it short, use images to tell a story based on a word picked to describe the year 2012. They will judge on music, lighting, editing and keeping the viewers attention with your story telling.
My Word of Year was "excited" and ultimately the video will be featured on my real estate blog > NH Realty Scoops.com
This was done in one take with no editing except adding in some B rolls using video and still images that I have filmed over the last few years. When I redo it I will probably say "those meaningless to you initials behind my name" instead of the way I worded it in the video.
I did not use a teleprompter but I did have an outline of what I wanted to say that read over a few times before filming but of course I forgot most of the good stuff once filming started. I'd love to hear your opinion of the video.
