Did you watch my first it’s-not-a-periscope? It only took ten minutes to make it. I spoke. My daughter Sophie recorded. We did it all in one take.
“That was easy,” I said when we’d finished “I could make loads of these videos. All I need is a few spare minutes. I could talk about all kinds of things.”
So a few days later, I shouted, “Hey, Sophie! How about we record another it’s-not-a-periscope? We’ve just got enough time before we have our morning coffee. I could talk about art and creativity and show everyone some of the pictures on our walls.”
So Sophie grabbed the camera, pointed it in my direction, and I started speaking. And immediately I made a mistake. I completely messed up the beginning of the video. Sophie laughed and laughed at something I’d said. Videographers aren’t as polite as they ought to be!
Here’s that first attempt to record my video.
Eventually, we all stopped laughing, and we continued filming. And, despite it taking us longer than expected, we ended up with a second episode of It’s Not a Periscope.
“Do periscopes have show notes?” I asked Sophie.
“I’m not sure.”
As this isn’t a real periscope, I can do whatever I like. I can make up my own rules. So I put together some notes. I included the links to a few things I chatted about.
