So, you’ve been reading this Italy Logue for awhile, wondering who the heck this Jessica character is. You may have seen the teency picture near the top of the front page of the girl with the dark hair stuffing herself with pizza, but that is neither big enough to see what I look like or informative enough to know what I’m like (except that I like pizza). And although I generally don’t like to be filmed (this is, after all, why I work so hard to stay on the other side of the camera), my bosses have been grabbing employees one by one and subjecting them to the bright lights of our very own mini-TV studio so that anyone visiting our websites can know who the heck we are.
It is with some trepidation, therefore, that I bring you my video profile:
Don’t laugh, I talk fast when I’m nervous.
I’ve got a little digital camera here with me in Italy (along with my gigantic digital SLR), and am planning to take some videos during the trip which will be collected and then edited (and generally prettified) by our capable in-house video guru, Ethan, and posted later for your viewing pleasure right here. I’m probably going to stay out of the videos personally, but who knows? Maybe I’ll really get into the whole talking-head thing and by the end of my trip be shouting, “I’M READY FOR MY CLOSEUP, MR. DEMILLE!!!” to no one in particular. Probably not, but you never know.
Anyway, if you want to see more videos that Ethan has either made or deemed suitable for an audience of travel fanatics, check out the BootsnAll Videos blog. And to see the video profiles of the other people I work with, here’s the link to the BootsnAll staff profiles. Just promise you won’t judge us too harshly. The camera adds 10 pounds, you know. (And probably a good helping of nonsensic babbling, as well.)
