A while back I asked if there were any nurses here who were remotely involved with music. . . at least had a keen interest in music. I asked this simply because music is one of my passions and creative outlets.
I'm also involving myself with video. Digital video. . . MiniDV based, to be more precise. Since last winter, I've invested a modest amount of $$$ in a miniDV camera and related hardware and software. This has been a long standing dream to be able to get into the production aspect of videography. . . digital videography. What's even cooler is that I can score my own music to the video project.
So far my projects have been modest. I've done a few 2002 holiday videos, a couple of church focused videos and a few home-grown videos of walks through the woods capturing mountains, streams, ponds, wildlife, etc. Video taping these projects is fun. Editing the digital video via the computer program is such a creative and rewarding experience. Scoring the music. . . well. . . I'm in freakin' heaven when I do this!!!
I'm working on one video project in partnership with my hospital. I shared this a while back, but its a recruitment video in attempts to get men into nursing. Honestly, I think the premise of this project is a little wierd. I'd much rather this project be more inclusive and focus the recruitment video towards anyone. But this project gives me a chance to "play with my toys"! The script is written. Just waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting (since around February, by the way!) to start the actual video taping. Hope to start in a couple of weeks! Finally!
So I'm sitting here. . . at work. . . with my usual one and only patient. . . who is safely sleeping. . . with her heart a-beatin'. . . wondering if anyone else holds an interest in any aspect of video production? Do you do profession video? Do you do home videos? Do you do editing? Are you involved more with the acting part of video production. . . in other words, are you a video diva????? :chuckle
Please share your experiences you may have with any aspect of video production. Share the video related toys you may own (hardware and software). This is your time to brag about your video-related creative outlet!!
Happy videography, folks!
