“Don’t let that vast space inside your head – aka as your imagination – go unused!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
I will admit that I have a ridiculous amount of fun when I head down to my virtual broadcast studio!
There is simply so much to explore, new ideas to pursue, features to understand. I keep expanding the size of the virtual coincident with the size of my virtual imagination!
I never really used this particular shot in any substantive way, but one day, I will. I was at this moment exploring a new software feature that let me take my camera view and place it anywhere on the screen and size myself appropriately. It’s a stage, similar to the real stages I used to walk upon!
If you don’t have your old reality for a time, you simply find a different one.
I’m told by many people that this type of virtual setup is impossible to use in an online Webinar – on an iPhone, I’m simply too small, too far away, too insignificant. And yet, what I’m learning in this new format is how to use a string of these types of scenes to build my story, or to introduce a segment.
The new world of online meetings is more akin to a broadcast than it is to a keynote, and I am busy exploring, adapting, innovating, attempting.
I’ve got this huge empty space in my head that needs to be filled with new ideas – on a continuous, regular basis.
How about you?
