In an effort to stay on top of my game, I decided that I wanted to start doing amazing video. Since I joined become a blogger, it has really gotten me hyped about using online video. Now, if you know anything about me, you will know that when I decide to do something, I try to go all out. It's that “all-or-none” mentality.
My pursuits began on ebay. I've always wanted some kind of professional video camera – the Canon GL2 to be exact. Ever since a year ago when I saw a video a friend of mine made with the GL1 (predecessor to the GL2), I decided that it was the one for me. I saw one on ebay for $999 and was trying to convince myself to buy it. Just when I decided, someone else bought it and it was too late.
My wife told me not to worry. According to her, it meant that something better was out there. In a sarcastic tone I said “Yeah right!”. Canon GL2s go for $1800+. I was never going to find one for lower than $999 (or so I thought).
On Friday, another GL2 got listed for $875. I was so excited and my wife was sure to tell me “I TOLD YOU SO”. I snatched it and paid a little extra for overnight delivery. It should be here by tomorrow and I'm extremely excited.
As I already mentioned, I have somewhat of a tendency to go overboard. I'm getting the camera so I might as well take it to the next level. I did a google search for lessons on how to shoot professional video and came across IzzyVideos.com. Wow, that site is AWESOME!
I decided to subscribe for $45 for 6 months and I'm amazed. Plus I got to give away 1 free membership. I found someone else who was interested and we split the cost. Israel Hyman is AMAZING. He has a bunch of short videos (currently 113) that teach you exactly how to make professional videos and adds more every month.
You can download all of his podcasts into your iTunes and watch them at your leisure. I watched a bunch of them yesterday and I've learned so much already. If I was excited about the GL2 before, I am 10 times as excited now.
If you are interested in any aspect of video, I recommend heading over to IzzyVideo.com and getting a membership. Split the cost with someone and you are getting an even better value.
So, why am I telling you about all of this. Well, I wanted to let you know that you should see an evolution in what I present. I will continue to post articles to this blog. However, in addition to that, I will be spicing it up with some professional video in 2009.
Not only that, but the people who will benefit the most from this are those that get the Free Mentoring site. How? hahaha, if I told you, then you would know. I would rather just build the anticipation . . .
