This happened four days ago. I was busy with my exams, pulling off all-nighters and walking like a dead zombie when I was informed that I have been selected by my college as one of the candidates for Google’s student facilitators. They told me that I will be shortly contacted by mail, and they did. They asked me to post a video of me explaining any topic in simple terms within a day. So, I had to attend my exams, take a video, edit it and post it on YouTube within a day and the worst part was, I haven’t even decided on a topic yet.
I should say that this would not have been possible without the superman of my life, my dad. When I called him, he took a day off from his work and came to my college. My home is a couple of hours away from college and as you have guessed it, I am a hosteler. After going home, we had a very short time frame to capture the video and edit it. The situation was hilarious.
When we finally began shooting it ,the time was 10:30 pm. The lighting was too bright, I was squinting my eyes and frowning. I was too nervous, had absolutely no idea what I was talking about and to add to that was the incessant teasing by my sister!
In the end, I started editing the video at around 12:30 for a 2;30 deadline. Let’s just say you can see that I have no previous experience in editing. But still, this was a great experience. Maybe I can do it again sometime, with better preparation of course..
Here is my amateur attempt ..
