Outtakes Happen to All of Us


We all make mistakes… don’t we? We all have those  moments when, despite it all, we just can’t be serious, just can’t knuckle down to it.

Please say it’s not just me!

For some reason, put me in front of a camera and I find it very hard to be serious. Very hard indeed.

Take the video I was trying to record the other week, for example. I was trying to make a ‘welcome’ video for my website and was sure I could just wing it… but, well, I was wrong.

I recorded over an hour of video that night, starting at around 1:45am – and the mixture of me being alone in front of a camera, tired, and trying to improvise a light-but-serious video all became too much for me.

The following video is just a snippet of what happened and was all filmed in one shot. No matter how hard I tried, I just could NOT keep a straight face (or keep my hands still).

There is nothing educational whatsoever in this video, but hopefully it will at least make you laugh!

IS it just me that can’t be sensible in front of a camera?

About PeterP

I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.
