Did you read that right? A video? I did something a little differently this time– I made a video review of March (Book One), just to see if I really could do it. I was curious whether the BookTube (?) format would be better for the graphic novels I review. I’d done a lot of video editing and whatnot in high school, and a little bit in college, but I’d be lying if I said this stuff was still familiar to me.
Moral of the story:
1) I’m a writer, not a talker.
2) I speak far too slowly.
3) I should make sure I’m in focus before I finish the bulk of the filming. I swear I was in focus the first session of filming. Then I scrapped it, and decided that I would work with this footage instead. It was a trial.
Hopefully you all enjoy it, despite its flaws!
I gave this March (Book One) 4.5 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed it, and thought it did a great job setting up Rep. Lewis’ inspiration for being a part of the civil rights movement. I walked away from this first book with a much greater understanding of his background, and how that provided the impetus for his activism.
