I got up a little later on Saturday morning, perhaps procrastinating a little that which lay ahead of me, though even I knew little how long that day might end up being.
Video-based assessments aren’t my favourite task, being particularly introverted it goes against my nature to want to be filmed. My first ever video assessment took so many retakes as I was so uncomfortable, plus a bit of language may have crept in through stress, alright, a lot of stress.
So, on Saturday, I set to take, writing a script how I wished to tackle each component of the overall video before I began to film. And then I began. Why did I even bother, for upon commencement I barely stuck to my script and “take two”.
Eventually, all components had been shot and I was finally editing within Panopto, my least most favoured video editor. Editing each video Down it became apparent I would not be able to achieve the 10 minute required limit, a reshoot would be required. Ugh.
I reshot, looking at how I could speed up my talking, be more succinct whilst still getting across required information. Still too big, editing was required, trimming as much as I could without being too noticeable. Eventually, some 13.5 hours after I first started, I wrapped things up, though was absolutely wrecked.
Now must write a report on the overall investigation. I think I need a holiday.
