I decided to make my video response about how access to technology has changed the way Iearn and interact with others. I did this because when I was reading the article it made me think most about how my friends and I still use our phones to communicate subverbally even when we’re all together.
If I had done this response in the form of a blog post, it would have been much more organized. This is because I decided against reading from a script for my video response so that the video would feel more natural. As a result of this I ended up using a lot more hand gestures and moving, however I had some unplanned pauses when I was transitioning between ideas or stuttering.
Most of the challenges I encountered with making a video response were related to technology. Before recording the video, I spent a significant amount of time trying to position myself and my laptop to avoid looking goofy.
