I thought this was a great way to introduce ourselves to others in the ds106 community, and a nice alternative to the usual icebreakers (my most recent one was “tell the story of your name” which is getting a bit old).
My process in making this was, as always, a learning one. I started using the video function in PhotoBooth and did what I know was a shorter version of this. But when I went through the trouble of then exporting it to iMovie and tried to then share it with YouTube, I learned that there was no sound. Who knows if that is a common problem in PhotoBooth or whether I did something wrong. Didn’t have time for googling it.
So I reshot this in iMovie and it worked like a charm. At over 6 minutes, this one is filed under the category “embarrassing videos of me” (JK). But then I had to give my football keychain its due, didn’t I???
