Our next Members-only video chat will happen Wednesday, April 29 at 1:00 p.m. (EST)/10 a.m. (PST) on Zoom.
If you’d like to take part, login and send a private message to Scott Ott with your email address so we can send you an invitation. If you’ve received invitations before, you’re already on the invitation list.
Check out Ep. #003 to get a sense of what it’s like.
If you want to participate, here’s what you’ll need.
Willingness to be heard and seen on video by our Members (only). While we won’t stream it live beyond the immediate participants, we plan to record the session and post it for Members here.
A computer with a camera and mic (or a smartphone) — and, ideally, earbuds or headphones — with enough internet bandwidth to smoothly stream video. If you’re using a laptop, put it atop a stack of books so we’re looking straight on at you, rather than up your nostrils. If you use a smartphone, position it straight on, and either on a tripod or standing on a desk so that it’s stable, not shaky. The best framing will make the shot a little bit wider than your shoulders.
Ability to position the light — from a lamp or window — in front (rather than behind) you so we can see your face, not just your silhouette.
High tolerance for technical difficulties. Software and the internet, like people, can be fussy. If you frustrate easily, you might want to sit this one out.
If you need help, feel free to contact us.
