Making a Movie is Hard

I've been trying to come up with a concept for the homepage video for several months, and because I don't have a budget for it, I'm keeping it as simple as possible. I usually like creative challenges that I can sink my teeth into, but dammit, coming up with a concept that will keep viewers interested for one whole minute (and wanting more) is tough!

If you have a youtube channel, you probably have a Draw My Life video up.  Interestingly, a lot of people who have their own youtube channel are Self-Preservation/Sexual/Social or Sexual/Self-Preservation/Social.  At least that's what I've noticed so far!

This morning, I finally have a rough idea of what I'm going to do.  I've done one of those white board "Draw My Life" videos with a girl I tutor, which involved downloading Splice, and timing her narration to the video. It was fun- even though finicky-  and I'm going to tweak the concept for my webpage with pictures of philosophers and quotes from Daniel Goleman. Because who can resist Daniel Goleman quotes?
