Couple of days ago Mr. Neoxian shared the post link of lordbutterfly in Neoxian city discord channel. It is an important post and Mr. D encouraged and asked everyone to participate in it. Its about making a video for freechain film where Hive community members have to answer a simple question - "What does Hive mean to you". Lordbutterfly has shared in detail on how and what needs to be done in order to make this short video clip, click here to get more details on it.
I have been a part of Hive community for a long time and always wanting to boost and promote hive to others. I had a look on that post couple of days ago and decided to make one on weekend. I was very confident that I will do it very easily. While others were sharing their experience on Neoxian City discord channel, one of our friend said that it is really hard to pick which one to choose, nothing seems going right when capturing the video. I was like it is not that hard, what you guys talking about and blah blah. I was taking it too easy.
Now the time came, it was weekend. I just wasted almost whole day in watching TV, movies. Finally I decided to make my video hoping to be selected or become the part of that freechain film. It is a simple question and it was said that you can also make it in your mother language but I choose to make it in English. I made a script in my mind, opened all the lights of my room to get better light, not too dark. I was overconfident that I will make it in one go, its not a big deal.
Ready get set, GO!!! Ooppss I just slipped my tongue in between delivering the statement what I kept in my mind for so long. Take one failed me badly. I was feeling crazy so to cover up my nervousness, I started acting awkward. I was making fun of myself and it was all getting captured. Take two didn’t go further as I just got stuck with HIVE work lol. Then I kept on trying and trying hard to deliver my message without getting stuck anywhere but it gets harder and harder and my nervousness was all over me. I was acting funny to feel better and to get a smiley face while saying those words. Finally, after 8 takes, I got the ninth one perfectly delivered but then it was too long because it needs to be not more than 15 seconds aaaahhh what a mess.
The thing which I was taking too easy didn’t turned out to be the same. Now, I know how hard it is for actors to perform infront of big cameras and so many people around. I cant even make one shot in my room all alone. After discussing this matter with my bro, he advised me to edit and make that video short by using Clipchamp because I was not ready to go for it again or else it would have taken 50 takes to get the final and correct one. At last, I uploaded the edited one to Google Drive as instructed and found peace in my life.
I would like to invite all of you to be a part of this activity and share your thoughts with us on what HIVE means to you.
