So it has come to this. My publisher has asked for two short video clips to help promote A Journey into the Transcendentalists' New England and A Journey into Ireland's Literary Revival. Although I feel very comfortable in front of groups of people and have even done a fair amount of amateur acting, turn on a camera and out comes the Tin Man! So, I'm thinking an animated slide show with music and a voice over would be much better (and easier on the eyes) as opposed to film of me droning on in front of Emily Dickinson's Homestead. I am thinking of doing it with Powerpoint but that may be slightly beyond my technical skills. I've watched the other travel videos here on Red Room and most seem to be the work of professionals. So, I ask:
What video/presentations have worked for you? What do you like to see in an author Youtube clip?
