This is the first in a multi-part series on improv­ing video blog qual­ity. The series will cover pre­sen­ta­tion, light­ing, sound, edit­ing and cam­era tips. So lets dive in with pre­sen­ta­tion and we’ll get to cam­era, light­ing, edit­ing and sound qual­ity in fol­low up posts. 1. First and fore­most — learn to talk in sound bytes. Video is not the printed page. In order to be inter­est­ing, infor­ma­tive and keep a viewer’s full atten­tion it must have a con­ver­sa­tional tone.

Super Pow­ers — Acti­vate An Inter­view with blog­ger and entre­pre­neur Jes­kica Labud Jes­kica was quite sur­prised when I asked her if I could inter­view her to kick-off my tech sec­tion.

The World of Mar­ket­ing has For­ever Changed   This is an arti­cle I con­tributed to the Adver­tis­ing Club of Westchester’s blog. The orig­i­nal is avail­able on the ACW site.   Con­sis­tency, Inno­va­tion, Trans­parency – Nat­ural Selec­tion? The event started off with mar­ket­ing terms much like you’d expect a mar­ket­ing panel would. Only, a few min­utes in it became clear– it would be some­thing dif­fer­ent.
