Video: A Really Boring One

I am trying to learn how to use my GoPro camera better and how to use Final Cut Pro, so I’ve been doing a little experimenting. A couple of weeks ago, I set up my GoPro on a Gorilla Pod tripod attached to the top corner of the bookshelves in my office and set the time lapse to shoot an image every 60 seconds. I did this for the full five days during the week and no one noticed (or if they did, they didn’t say anything). I only captured three to four hours each days as this is how long the wifi backpack battery lasted. Every time I had to get the camera up or down, I had to crawl on a stool and doing that during the middle of the day usually meant someone would see me and ask what was I was doing. So, I didn’t recharge during the middle of the day to capture the whole day. Therefore, the half-day recordings.

If you are curious as to how I spend my days when I am not traveling, this will be really interesting to you: I sit at my desk working all day. Sometimes people come in and talk to me. Sometimes I leave to talk to other people or go to meetings. You can see me eating my Brown Sugar Cinnamon PopTart and drinking my Red Bull each morning. Like I said, this is a boring video. But I have put too much time into figuring out how to use the technology to not share it.
