I flew into North Carolina last month to work with the fine folks at Ignite Social Media (not to be confused with Ignite, the speaking events, which apparently happens quite often). They brought in a variety of bloggers of all shapes and sizes to work on a series of how-to videos for the new Samsung Smart TV (in 3D!). Tech, video, lifestyle type folks. People I respected… and in the end, really liked. In between takes, we got to play with all the new technology Samsung is bringing to market, and stuff our faces with yummy food, which was an added treat. It was a fun couple of days.
We were filmed on green screen, in a fabulous, professional production house. With several cameramen, sound people, and all the Ignite people in the room, behind the camera.
Remember how I used to co-own a multimedia development firm? *I* used to be the one *behind* the camera.
Imagine my nerves.
But with all their gentle prodding, I think it turned out pretty OK.
Although I hear there is a blooper and behind the scenes video in the works, which will undoubtedly show the millions of takes it took to finally get what you see above.
Blogger disclosure: I was hired by Ignite Social Media and Samsung to appear in this video and my travel expenses were covered as well.
