I had some fun today pulling together a video designed to promote Jamboree on the Air to radio amateurs. It’s right at three minutes and gets a fair bit of information across in that reasonably palatable timeframe. We took the raw video at the National Scouting Museum this past week and then I stitched it all together today.
I didn’t really use a script. Instead, I pulled together a few notes prior to the video shoot and then stumbled my way through a few takes. It came together reasonably well during the editing process, getting all the key points across. I was also able to use quite a few iMovie features to add some pep to the essentially talking head video. By using some music at the beginning and end, some deft transitions, along with a fair number of titles and photos, I feel that it should serve it’s purpose well. I don’t expect it to go viral, but it will get the message out to a few people.
Here’s the video. Click on the link to see the HD version. Let me know what you think.
