Hi all, there are now 10 videos up on the channel. I have to thank Dom for his Facebook publicity, which saw the number of views rocket within a couple of hours; I wonder if others might also do what they can to promote them by posting links to their chosen social networking outlets?
Secondly, could I suggest that those of us with blog posts on their objects edit those posts to embed their YouTube video into the text? It will just pull everything together and make all our material more accessible. See mine below.
When Mike’s back I’ll be filming him on the Newlyn-Philips machine, and Emily will be doing her short introduction, the transcript of which she has posted below. I will then put the pieces together, edit where necessary, and we will have 8 short videos to go up on our YouTube channel.
This should be a nice project to coincide with the installation of the exhibit in the Sadler building. If anyone has any other objects they want to do, please let me know, because I’m hoping this can be an ongoing, on-growing part of the museum which will serve to consolidate and strengthen our online presence.
UPDATE: You can view all of these 1 minute videos on our YouTube channel here.
