Creativity Week!!

I mentioned on my previous post that I will be making a video. My goal is to have it done by the end of creativity week. I know one week isn't enough so I will have to start before creativity week. There are so many aspects of my life and the school that I want to mention in the video so it's going to take a while before I can piece in a masterpiece. I feel like I'm a perfectionist with these kinds of things so that worries me a bit because if I'm not content by the way the video is looking than I might bring myself down.

I want to give myself enough time in order for my video to get as much views as possible that's why I'm making the due date for the video early in the second semester. I'm aware that it is not going to be easy for my video to get as much views so the more time it has the better. Creativity week is going to be hard for I don't think I've ever had a task this big in one week.

A few problems I see coming:
1) Someone to help me record during the week
2)Having a laptop outside of class so that I could edit
3)Bad organizing with time and materials

My Video is going Viral!.....Maybe??

Now that I've made up my mind I want to let the world know about the video I will be posting mid-February. I will post it on YouTube and the plan is for it to go viral so that I can get money for it. I read an interesting article called "Cashing In on Your Hit YouTube Video". The article gave me different ideas and different components to include in my video. But one of the points that the article makes is that it mainly doesn't depend on me. The article said I will need an "unpredictable cocktail of luck and timing".

Now I feel a bit better because even if I made a perfect video it doesn't really depend on me. If I'm lucky I'll get viewers, if I'm not lucky then I'll have to find a way to make money for the school. But now I know that I have to finish my documentary as early as possible to give myself as much time as I can in order for my video to get the most videos it can by the end of April hopefully.

So now I'm making it official. I, Alan Rodriguez, am declaring to make a documentary to help fund my school and I'm not holding anything back. I have a few ideas for the documentary but my blog viewers are going to have to wait on this one.
