It’s getting pretty late and I still have tons of work to do, but for some reason, I couldn’t help myself. I just had to put up the video of the presentation that I did the weekend before last at the Santa Cruz County 2008 Housing Expo.
The presentation was scheduled to last 30 minutes – about 20 minutes of me yakking to some PowerPoint slides, and about 5-10 minutes of follow-up questions. As luck would have it, my presentation lasted closer to 25 minutes, and the Question and Answer session which followed lasted about the same. Even after the session ended, I stayed and answered questions on a one-on-one basis for another half hour after that.
The room was pretty full – granted, it was not a big room, but there were 40-50 people in there, I’d say. It was a lot of fun and many people told me they really got a lot out of it.
I wrote e-mails to a bunch of people telling them about the presentation, and more than one person replied (OK, two people) and said that they were sorry they couldn’t make it, but would a video be posted on-line?
Fabulous idea, I thought. So I hired a videographer to come and do the video. I was going to cut the video myself using iMovie from Apple, using up some of the copious amounts of spare time that I have (ha ha, did I mention it’s nigh on 1 AM and I’m still slaving away?). However, after thinking it over for about 20 seconds, I realized that there was no way I was going to be able to cut the video and do a halfway decent job and get it posted on-line while this foreclosure wave is still upon us. So, I shelled out the big bucks and had it professionally edited by your friends and mine at Visual Poetry.
I hope you enjoy my video presentation! Please pass around the link to my Opportunities in the Santa Cruz Foreclosure Market video presentation.
