Today’s video contains finally all the parts I want my videos to contain. But unfortunately, the content itself isn’t the most solid. But I’ll let you decide, check out the video below:
It didn’t turn out too bad, though the casually took shots of the scenery etc with camera shaking really gave it a bit home videoy quality. Also, like I said, the content itself was a little half-baked. I had not really thought through what I wanted to convey – I’m sure people get the basic idea I’m trying to convey, given it’s not anything new.
But oh well, I was getting really disintegrated mentally when the intense sleep deprivation (11 hours of sleep over last three nights combined) combined with the pressure of actually being in public speaking situation for a chance. This negatively affected my Finnish video too. It’s gonna take a while to get used to that, but I’m certain I will be further pushed if I’m to complete my challenge.
Enough explaining the video, lets further elaborate some points.
I focused on losing the moment side of things when just focusing to capture the moment, but there’s another aspect many people like to take pictures of themselves in attractions – ego. I mean lets face it, there’s really no need for anyone to take a picture of themselves in certain location to have people believe they were there. Besides, what does it even matter?
I’m not saying it’s all bad, but it often is a symptom that travel is used as a means of enhancing ones ego.
I will be elaborating on that a lot more, probably on tomorrow’s video.
Let me know what you think of this kind of half-thought idea, shoot it full of holes if you want.
And yes, I do get the irony of complaining of stuff like this when I’m doing this kind of self-documentary.
