The Afternoon Commute – A New Video Blog from Autosavant
Every day we at Autosavant read an enormous amount of news about what is going on in the automotive world. Sadly, most of us do not have is the capacity to write about all of that news on a daily basis (our day jobs seem to get in the way). As a result, our Technical Director Kevin Gordon has started video blogging about the day’s happenings in a new segment named The Afternoon Commute. After the break is a bit more information, a link to today’s Afternoon Commute, along with a spoof trailer to the series.The Afternoon Commute is a video capture of Kevin speaking about the day’s events during his commute home from his day job. The video is unscripted and generally just comes from memory. When important facts or figures are required we’ll bring them, but we are trying to be safe while driving.
The plan is to do this five business days a week and to post the videos directly to YouTube in our channel www.youtube.com/autosavant. (The first three episodes have poor sound quality and camera work, so you might want to skip those) It might seem simple, but filming, loading, converting, editing and uploading the video takes some time so….We would really like your feedback on what you think works and what doesn’t. It goes without saying, that we would appreciate thumbs up and likes on YouTube and Facebook, and the opportunity to correct the things that you think need improvement in all the places you can leave comments.We are working on constantly improving the way that these are filmed and delivered, and look forward to growing together to something that is useful, informative, and fun. Our goal is to increase the presence of Autosavant in order to add to the amount of coverage we can provide and the channels with which we can deliver that information.
Outside of The Afternoon Commute, stay tuned for additional video content on reviews of cars, products, and events. We sincerely look forward to your feedback.
Here is the spoof trailer to the series:
