Yesterday’s Pixel Show was the hardest to make so far, not because it was any longer or more complex than any other episode, but because of my stupid camera. I shot the whole episode in four long, sweeping takes, and then prepared to edit them into a finished product – only to discover that the entire thing was horrendously out of focus:
You might notice that the Metroid Prime Trilogy’s package in the video is already opened – that’s because I’d opened it properly in an out-of-focus shot, and then had to do the whole thing again.
This week’s episode also features better lighting, I think. There’s no ugly shadow over my face, at the very least.
If there’s one thing that I’m most pleased with this episode, it’s that I am becoming better at doing these unscripted takes. Hopefully it comes across in the videos that this is natural and not forced or disjointed. Here’s hoping, anyway!
