I recently blogged about the History of Online Video.
In 5 short years, video has completely redefined how we consume information.
So what prompted my creation of a video resume?
Two things happened, in the past few days:
- I’ve contributed to another book, and the book producer wanted a bio from me.
I didn’t have a written one handy, and felt bored just thinking about writing about myself (yawn.)
- I recently reached out to a big-name Internet Marketer, offering to help him wherever he needed.
To my surprise (be careful what you ask for), the response I got back was: “Okay. What can you do?”
So, having messed around with Camtasia Studio and Animoto for a while, I decided to give Windows Movie Maker a try.
And I’ve been pleased with the results. It’s really easy to use (doesn’t get in the way of the storytelling.)
Anyway, the video’s below. Let me know what you think.
