EDEN - Late Again!

Deutsche Version

Me and my big mouth, telling Roland I would update on Tuesdays instead of Thursdays...

Anyways, the topic for this weeks discussion is webcam performers.

Stop doing it! What the heck, you guys? Don't even get me started on the fact that 90% of these are shot with a complete mess of a bedroom in the background. At least clean it up and pretend to be presentable. Jeez. My guess is that a lot of these people are going to be very embarrassed in ten years. It's on the internet, and it will theoretically be there forever. Once it's online, its out of your control. Lesson learned from Paris Hilton.

Aside from utter lack of presentability, (not to be confused with presentation, next weeks topic!) webcams give you bad habits. Spectators are not fixed into only watching you from one specific angle, your patter starts to seriously diminish, (more next week!) and you end up taking advantage of a slowed frame rate. But, hey, what do I know? My pass is garbage.

Go perform for real people! It helps make you into a real magician.

I appreciate comments.

eden loves you and hopes all your dreams come true.

I don't mind people performing in front of a webcam if they take into account their background everything else you mentioned (including the angle, move that camera people). The problem is that it's often forgotten....
