I have made a few videos recently by trying to lower my standards to improve output. That did not work out so well.
When I produce a 1-hour video, it takes 20 – 40 hours of work. From concept to script can take a few days. Rehearsal, recording and rewrites can take a few days. Actual recording is seldom done in one take. It can take one or two days. Then there is the editing, subtitles, self criticism, dissatisfaction, deleting, re-recording, then publishing, and promotion.
At the suggestion of a couple of students, I tried to shorten the process and try to get a video done in one or two days. The result was disastrous incoherent mumbling rambles that I couldn’t make public.
So, I am back to spending 20 – 40 hours per video. I need to work full-time to do a good job of it. That is challenging these days with the Covid economy.
I appreciate your patience and support.
The latest video is Introduction to Tai chi, Episode 12: Engineering a Martial Art. Coming soon are more videos in that series, as well as regular lessons in the “Incomplete Tai chi” series.
