A brief recap. I woke up on Feb. 5th to my 60 Second episode, Super Tuesday, on the homepage of YouTube, craziness! This drove a massive influx of visitors to my site and I was unprepared. But this definitely got me some great exposure. That episode now has over 26k views and I am thankful to everyone over at YouTube News & Politics for giving me the opportunity, especially David McMillian, who was kind enough to notify me of my homepage appearance.
Fast forward. Since then I’ve been working double time. A few new episodes. Some not so happily received. Created a few openSermo shorts which are currently circulating the net; check em out here and here. Got a special tribute video in the works. More on that soon. And finally we have some set lighting, if you can call it that: 18″ fluorescents taped to 7 ft metal shelving rods (check out the pic below). Thanks to Walter Graff @ Bluesky Production Group for the idea; however lacking tripods, we Macgyvered the hanging rods.
And earlier today, I started pondering if I should attend SXSW. Yeah it’s a bit late and unfortunately I’m gonna have to pay a heavy price due to this lateness; I’m still trying to work out the economics. However, this will be my first SXSW. If anyone has any tips, thoughts, or plans to attend, definitely let me know.
