Curtailing myself from further digression, this video was filmed with the Blackberry held in my left hand and my pistol in my right hand. I still managed to knock down a couple of steel plates. Now those plates were very heavy and needed to be struck in just the right place (the top 3 inches) or they wouldn't fall. It's possible to hear my bullets hitting the plates.
Occasionally I will set up a real camera to record video - not, I hasten to add, a video camera but a compact that also shoots video. In fact that compact (a Canon S1 IS) shoots much better video than it takes photos. The video quality is higher, even if the shooting isn't.
What I'm saying is that in an online world, video can be fun. The trick is not to make videos too long. Ideally 30 seconds should be your longest video. People just don't want to hang about watching videos - not when they can watch grass growing, paint drying and have all those rice puddings to knit.
My personal favorite of all my videos is of the execution by gunfire of a Virgin phone. Virgin and I had a tolerable relationship for a number of years but as I moved from 2G to 3G, the relationship broke down. This video shows the charges, judgement and execution of a particularly awful phone. Aside from the constant beeping that the phone produced whether I was using it or not, it did some pretty dreadful things.
