The newest Lib Dem video comes from Tom Brake MP and is a simple introduction to his website.
I’ve seen a few websites do this in the US and it seemed worth trying. People like to know who their representatives are and video can definitely help bring them to life.
I’ve just done another video over on Taking Power.
An almost embarrassingly cheap set-up (which perhaps you can see in the production!):
The Ixus (which dates from 2004) is a pocketable digital camera and not a camcorder, and only goes up to 320×240 at 15 frames per second. Google Video currently take 640×480 at 30 frames per second so it may be time to put a higher res camera on my birthday present list. 🙂
Obvious opportunities for improvement in lighting and framing. But then I suspect the first Focus didn’t look too hot by today’s standards!
