Here's our first "proper" video, having discovered that we had accidentally bought a video camera, too, when we purchased the Finepix 3200, we thought we would try it out. The results are much better than our previous attempts with a borrowed mini dv so I think there will be many more to come.
On Monday, 1st May I drew the winner of the Names In Lights First monthly Free Prize Draw on Twitter.
The winner is @mummaturner and work is already underway on her chosen name MACIE.
The draw was open straight away and the response is wonderful - so far we have had an average of 50 entries per day for the first two days of May. It has proved so popular that we have had to limit entries to one per day. The slight downside is that it is nigh on impossible to keep up with acknowledging each entry, which feels rude. I expect I am going to have to find some sort of software solution, soon.
I am keeping the competition entries dilligently listed in excel, though, ready to be randomised at the end of the month.
We are hoping to find a charity to partner with (it is proving harder than you would think), because we are willing to make another "free monthly prize" but it would be nice to see that raise some money for charity and help spread the word about our little workshop.
