awesome, keep making vids! if i can make some suggestions, i would first remember to always have your phone in "landscape" (sideways) mode, and the image stabilization you're using is actually really good, but you'll have to zoom in the video a bit to get rid of the box floating around... but yeah, post some more!

Thanks for the encouragement, Matt! :)

I need a LOT of practice, but I enjoy it.

Can't wait to do another. :cool:

Ya your a natural in front of the camera! I just watched your SCOYOC lecture, too bad the audio wasn't connected to the mic..And whats this with all the books you've written!!!

See if you can get your hands on some kind of tripod so you can steady the camera, and that will also free you up a little.

Thanks. ;)

I'm a retired Horror author.

That was another life...another adventure I had at one time, but I retired from writing, five years ago and retired my magazine shortly after.

I had my good times, but it was also really stressful. My books are all still on the market but I'll never write again...unless you count posting on forums. ;)

I'm much happier now and put whatever royalties I still make, toward my phone bill...one of the very few luxuries I allow myself.

Those lectures (if it's the one of me on stage )- it was done in four parts because the presentation was an hour long.

It was filmed at the Twin Cities Opera House, a notoriously haunted hot spot in the tiny, tiny town of McConnellsville, Ohio and believe me...funky audio issues were just the tip of the iceberg.

I've done a couple of movies too (indie) and love the camera...though I think I look awful on film.

Ha ha!

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$5.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $5.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $5.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $5.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $5.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
