You may have seen some of the Howcast videos I have been a part of in the past.  The filmmaker who shot them has a new project up his sleeve, and I am so excited to be a part of it.

He has been given a green light on some how-to videos for  The big difference for me between the Howcast spots and the About spots is that I a using my name and likeness in these videos.  The Howcast videos came with a pre-recorded voice over track, and in most cases I simply provided a little overacting.  In the About videos, I will be speaking directly to the camera.  For the test video we submitted to, we chose a how-to about vlogging.  Go figure.  I start out the video by saying, “Hi, I’m Meghan Lynn Allen for,” and go on to take you through he steps of how to vlog.  We chose that video because I was somewhat of an expert and could talk about it easily.  I wish I could show you the video, but I have not seen a live link yet.

About loved the test video, and now we get to choose from hundreds of topics and hack away at them.  However, believe it or not – I am not an expert at everything!  So we chose the videos that I could get away with – without being an “expert.” Today we shot 5 videos with a thank you note theme – how and when to send, etc.  In some cases, I was creating, memorizing, and delivering lines on the spot.  It was a lot of fun.  And I will be involving other talented people when I can.  We already involved some magician friends of mine!

I hope to be able to share some links with you soon, so you can see what it’s all About.  (See what I did there?)

Adventurously yours, Meghan
