Part 1: Going to Dallas

by Jina Bacarr

Are you going to the RWA Conference in San Francisco this summer? Not sure? It’s a fabulous way to get together with your fellow romance writers, meet editors and agents, and those parties…

Well, what happened in Dallas at the last year’s convention doesn’t stay in Dallas because I’ve got it all on video.

So for the next few months I’m going to put up my video blog with podcasts from last year’s RWA convention at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dallas, Texas, including several with your favorite authors and OCC members!!

First up is Going to Dallas with the OCC gang. I shot this video blog on the Super Shuttle going to the airport than later at the terminal while we were waiting for our flight to Dallas.

What is video blogging, you ask? Video blogging is an interesting, spontaneous, and fun way to capture those memories when you’re “in the moment.” You don’t have to shoot a long, continuous stream of video. You can edit several scenes and/or photos together to create your video blog. Short videos work best. Going to Dallas is just over a minute and a half long including credits.

How do I get started? you want to know. It easy. You can put all your video and your photos into a free program like Windows Movie Maker (included with Windows), split the clips where you want to cut them, delete, then add fun transitions and/or fade in/fade outs. Adding music can be trickier and we’ll discuss that next month.

If you want a program that chooses the shots for you and adds the special effects you specify from their “styles” packages, then I recommend Muvee. This is an expensive program ($129.95), but you can download it for 21 days and try it for free to see if it works for you.

So sit back and enjoy Going to Dallas RWA.

Best,
Jina

    LOL, Jina, I don’t think I realized you were video taping us until after you turned off the camera. I’m fairly sure I waved later! 🙂
