Library Day in the Life is a bi-annual initiative to document what library professionals really do these days, insitgated by Bobbi Newman. I’ve taken part in previous rounds with normal blog posts but frankly nobody ever really reads them – this time I wanted to do something a bit more interesting and a bit more visual.
So I’ve created a video of one day in my library life – the effort-to-end-product ratio of this is all out of sync as it took fricking ages! But anyway, here it is, I hope people like it.
In case anyone is interested, I used a Logitech webcam, my iPhone, my wife’s fairly ancient digitial camera, and BB Flashback Express screen-recording software to record it – and Windows Movie Maker to edit it all together. Music is by Mint Royale.
A couple of the best bits just would not work in Movie Maker. They play fine on their own, but they froze when I stuck them into the film. No idea why, it’s not done that to me before – so I’m afraid a screen-grab about LIFE-SHARE is gone, and a bit about #buyalib is gone too. I had waaaaaaay too much footage, too… Note to self: no need to film the entire commute.
