Why I Teach

A few weeks ago, videographer Will Luers came over and taped me talking about how career coach Vicki Lind had helped me get my self-employed act together.

Since he was already there, he shot a little extra footage, got me talking about why I teach, and we came up with this - let me know what you think. I think he did an awesome job!

Wow, this is awesome, Bridget!

I'd love to see this video posted as an article on TeachStreet. (http://www.teachstreet.com/article-editor/new) Great way for students and others to learn more about you when visiting your profile.

Very cool!

Makes me want to take a class from you, Bridget. Great promo piece, I'd say! :)

Took me a while to get to this, but it's way cool. Since I only know you through blog ping-pong, it's funny to hear a voice and see an actual moving picture. Kind of like seeing a picture of a radio personality... : )

You're in my territory, now…

I liked the way he framed the shots. I liked the way he integrated the B-roll footage. The audio was good (a common failing). He didn't swing the camera all over the place (why is that so hard for videographers to do these days?!). It was tastefully edited and made you look great. and the source material was cleanly shot and exposed properly and even compressed well.

This was not a creative tour-de-force for the videographer, which is perfect. It just got out of the way of you explaining your perspective, and the editing helped you do it.

In short, this guy is a professional and did everything right for this little video.
