This is our first full-length vlog episode together. We were quite amazed at how much footage we shot throughout the whole weekend at SacAnime Winter 2017. Video has always been a priority for Nerd Gazette, but something would always hold us back from creating. I feel like the new year with a refreshed motivation pushed us to make this happen, and it's a good thing we did.
Not only did we capture the essence of our weekend together, but the vlog episode ended up being over 14 minutes long. A sliver of footage was left out of the final version for the sake of keeping things flowing steadily. This was also our chance to realize the iPhone 6s is good enough for making these videos. Eventually we would like to upgrade to nicer gear, but this will do for now. The iPhone gives us 4k video, slow motion recording, and time-lapse – basically the necessities for us to record. One thing we want to add soon is an external mic attachment to improve the audio.
We did our best to capture the main happenings of the weekend for the video. I guess 3 days of recording really adds up. This really gives us a direction to approach future events when it comes to making videos like this. Check out the video below. Enjoy! :)
