So a while back I decided to make some YouTube videos about various topics I've discussed on this blog since videos can be a lot more digestible than blog posts. Life got in the way though, and I kept putting them off. That's finally changed though. I'm happy to say I've published my first "real" YouTube video about a climate change related issue. For my first video, I figured I'd tackle the 97% consensus meme, and the con that went into making it. You can check out the video here:
One thing I realized during previous attempts at making videos is I felt like there was too much "dead time" in terms of what was on the screen, where nothing was happening. The obvious solution to this was to get on camera and show my face as I talked during those portions. I'm not super comfortable with that, but I decided to go ahead and do it. I also edited the video a bit so I could do things like splice in video clips.
I'm not exactly thrilled with how the video turned out, but I think it turned out alright for a first attempt. My hope is with practice and experimentation, I'll be able to improve so I can make videos people will enjoy watching and find informative. Given that, any feedback is welcome!
