Some Video Is Better Than No Video

Are you a perfectionist (like me) who has trouble starting something?  Trouble calling it done?  I've made videos, but I never post them.  The last video I made (for my corp job) took me a month, and I still wanted to make more changes.  After it was shared, I got a lot of feedback that it was helpful.

Challenge:
Post a video to this thread that you made in 15 minutes.  Any quality, any (within good taste) permie related topic, any tools.
  • Beginners welcome, to get us posting something!
  • Experts welcome, to show us how it's done!
  • Set yourself a goal of 15 minutes (or less) for prep, shoot, edit, and then post whatever you have.
  • Optional: include a short description of your process, challenges, or any other thoughts.


  • Let's support each other!

    I'll start.  Here's my entry.  I asked the Ants to make such a video, and later I felt guilty that I hadn't done the same myself, so I decided to fix that!



    It took me about 20 minutes, but I think at least 5 of that was fumbling with the apps.  I shot, edited, and uploaded on my iphone 5s, using the built-in Camera app to record short clips, the Splice video app (only because I already had it) to hook them all together, and the YouTube app to set a description and upload to YouTube.  My biggest complaint was that my narration is not smooth or well organized.  Most clips were done with only one take, but the blackberry clip took 4 takes because I kept flubbing the details that I wanted to share.  I guess this will get better with practice.

    Now your turn!
