I was trying to think of something to film with my little digital camera all day. I seriously couldnt think of anything. blah.
So i try my video camera and film this and it seems ok. maybe it just messes up on large videos. it has to be a harddrive issue.
Notice the skipping? well this was filmed with my cousin's camera. yet it still skips slightly. so it might not be the camera that is buggered after all. it could be a computer problem. i need a new harddrive. that must be it. i'll get one this week.
Ok. I wanna say a huge thanks to everyone who has donated so far. but if it turns out that it's just a harddrive issue, do you want your money back? if so. let me know.
You'll hate this. But it's the best i can do right now.
Im not failing this project just because of a stupid thing like not having a video camera. My cousin Rick say's he'll try and come over tomorrow with his video camera and help me do some videos. he fucking rocks.
Ok, Remember when i said i got the camera wet the other day? Yeah. well. i thought it was ok. It's not. I thought it was a tape problem. looks like it wasnt. Because i changed the tape. same problem. what happens is it jumps from one point of the footage to another. that isnt good.
So im back to basics...I have no working video camera now. so now im gonna make videos using my little camera that records about 10 seconds of video with no sound. i could also use the webcam i have.
This should be intresting to see what i can come up with until i have enough to buy another camera. which could be a while. I hate the idea of asking for donations. i like giving people the choice to donate or not to donate.
So if you want to help me out you can donate on the left. using the paypal link. I'll list how much i currently have as i go along.
So im going to go now record a video with a camera that only records 10 seconds of soundless video a go.
I had one problem copying ask ian #3 so im putting this up until that's up. just incase. yeah this sucks. but it's a video. so i wont fail.
Ask Ian #3 will be up soon. hopefully.
Ok. So i finally manage to get the ask ian episode on the computer and the footage is screwed up. so im gonna have to go refilm it again. im glad i put up that lame video earlier. it may suck. but it stopped me from failing.
I will try and get the video up asap. but it could end up being tomorrow morning.
So today i decided to dye my hair black, well. blue black. This is what happened and how it turned out.
I just realised i cant do another goth video for like 2 weeks now as i have to wait for my hair to be the right lengh. damn.
Im going away for the weekend. So until i get back, Michael Verdi will be posting my videos. I asked Ryanne to watch over this place as well. just incase something goes wrong.
see ya monday.
If you know nothing about feeds, dont bother reading the post below. It'll bore you.
So i just found out my feed link was broken. Im not sure if it works now. So could someone tell me if it actually works. The feed has changed slightly. So im pretty sure this means you have to re-subscribe to my feed. This is the new feed link:
Im going away on friday for the weekend. So this means tomorrow i have to make 3 videos in advance. it shouldnt be too hard. I just hope who ever i get to post them doesnt screw up. Damn, I can never relax.
This means im going to have to film sunday's ask ian tomorrow. So if you want anything answered email it in now. yes. just as you've read this. Click here to email me a question! I should probably mention comments arent emails. So i normally forget about them if they arent in my inbox. Get Emailing!
Im all about fair testing and this video just proves how fair i am.
I got service pack 2 last night. So that means i now have movie maker 2.0, So now i can do tons of things that i couldnt do before. Like slow downs and speed ups. I can even add text over the videos. you maybe thinking this is basic stuff. well i didnt have this before. So it's a big thing for me. I've also noticed the video is better quality too. This'll do until i get a mac.
Im gonna try and post a reworked verison of ask ian #2 tomorrow or maybe even tonight. It should clear up that sick misunderstanding.
So, I was out with my friends today and i got home an hour ago. I dont care if you hate this video. I kinda needed a break. So it only took 22 seconds to fllm this. It has no plot and it isnt really worth watching.
Im doing 'Ask Ian #2' tomorrow. So if you want me to answer one of your questions. Get emailing now. Click here to email me a question! Also, Please make sure your question makes sense before you email. Oh, and if you have a hard to pronouce name. it would probably be best to tell me how to pronouce it if you actually want me to read it out.
I watched Constantine today. It was good. Check it out if you can.
I've been planning to go to sleep since 6pm. But i couldnt because i had to do a video. Also, I have to stay up til 12pm as i have to go out then anyway.
Tomorrow should be an good day.
If you havent submitted questions for sunday's Ask Ian yet. Get emailing! I have more then enough to do one video. But it'd be great to get more. Click here to email me a question!
It's bound to happen a few times during the project. Im out of ideas that i can do within the time limit i have to post this. So...this is the best i can come up with.
Im really looking forward to sunday's Ask Ian. I have actually got a few questions to do now. But that doesnt mean you can stop sending in some questions. If you want me to answer a question for you. Get emailing! Click here to email me a question!
Thanks to everyone who sent in a question so far. Come back on sunday and see if your is read out. (this doesnt mean, i wont ever read out your question. If i get 40 questions, I'll have to break them up over the episodes. hell, if this really takes off, i might have to do another episode on another day of the week. wacky.
If your wondering about the song used in the video. I know it seems kinda weird at first. but after listening to it once. I get the urge to listen to it again. Thanks Kai for telling me about it.
I got kinda distacted talking to a friend of mine, who had come round. So instead of thinking up a video. I decided to just film his car while he was leaving. hardcore.
If you havent emailed in questions for next week's Ask Ian, shame on you. There are children dying in those third world countries, So i have no chance they'll email me...
Thanks to everyone who has emailed in so far. You all rock!
So i wanted to try and do something with fire today. This is how it turned out:
Because im really pushing it today with my deadline, I wont have the quicktime version up for a little while. Im also going to brighten both of these videos tonight. So quicktime will be up asap. Look's like i jinxed myself by saying that. I cant convert it just yet. So i'll try converting it tomorrow. I need sleep. Deal with it.
I wanna try it again soon.
So, I need to change some things. 'Shake things up'. So here's a video manifesto for this year:
The quicktime video will be smaller then usual as im having more issues converting nowadays due to harddrive space...It's a bitch.
This video isnt as...'wow'...as i wanted it to be. So i'll make a better version later. (as in when i want to)
Today my hits have doubled. yep, I had a total of 2 unique hits today. Just joking. At the time of writing it's 84. I normally get 30/40 unique hits a day. I guess i should thank Eric Rice and Chuck for the shout outs. I also want to thank Marc for donating yesterday. You all rock.
I think i've been playing that game (metal gear solid 3) too much. According to my family. At 6am this morning, I was shouting 'ARGH!!! SOLDIERS!!!' in my sleep. Apparently, really loud too. Oh well, Im gonna go try and complete it.
So i thought i've already boiled him, so why dont i freeze him aswell. I only thought of doing this today because i was bored. I dont have a hobby of freezing stuffed toys.
I'll post the results up either later or early tomorrow morning. I feel pretty creative today. I have 2 more ideas for videos today. So i might go film them now. I have an idea for an 'Ask Ian' thing. Where people could send in questions and stuff and i'll just answer it. I'll probably do it every sunday, as sunday is the day im normally working on stuff for college on monday. (Yeah, I normally leave everything to the last minute. I guess i work better under pressure.)
So if you want to know my option on something, just email me with the subject 'Ask Ian' and i'll respond in my video on sunday.
Oh and im kinda blown away by the comments for the last video. I havent even put up the quicktime version yet. (Damn my computer) Thanks for commenting.
Look it's another one of these videos again...yeah.
The quicktime version will be up a little later. converting issues...
Blah. I need a new harddrive mac. I never have enough space now to convert quicktime. I always have to delete stuff to make room. even though i have about 400mb free. I still need to make room. you see, i only got this computer for £50 from my uncle. (thanks john.) The only downside was the harddrive is only 10gb. So now im out of space.
So i was going to do a better video today, but i decided it was too dark outside to do it. So im using this video instead.
It seems some people thought my last video was either great or that it was my actual LAST video. Im not giving up this project. Also, I think it will be intresting to look back on these kinda videos at the end of this year. Blogs are ok for reading back and seeing how you were feeling then, But videos actually show how you were feeling then.
After posting that mini adventures video the other day with the terrible attempted australian accent, I thought i would be getting hate mail for months. So far, no hate mail. But Richard did make this [Dead Link] for me. He redid the video. In a real australian accent. That was really cool of him to do so.
Ok, So i'm fed up of the internet right now. I just wanna quit going on, but because of this project I have to. I'm feeling kinda weird right now. It's like i dont know what to do. I feel i really need a break. But then again, it doesnt feel like that will do much.
I'm not messing about. this is real. I thought it'd be good to capture, So i can look back on this later in the year.
I'm taking a break off the internet for a week. I'll still post my videos and respond to emails, but you wont find me on any messenger program.
