A preliminary talk – for comment
Bhuvan Singh has been planning a video series on FTI. A few weeks ago I recorded myself as a trial. The result – without script and any preparation – is provided below.
I rarely speak Hindi now so I was startled while speaking that I couldn't precisely pin down basic Hindi words that I'm otherwise very comfortable with. In any event, for technical reasons (poor placement of image inside the frame) this trial video was found unsuitable for the formal FTI series, so I'm putting it out here on my blog for comment. I seek your comments/ thoughts on this recording, which I'll consider while recording the next time (the result of which would hopefully be suitable for editing and use by Bhuvan).
Note that for technical reasons that I don't understand, the aspect ratio in this video is distorted and my face elongated. I'm not so thin! Also note that this is a half-hour video and will consume 100 MB of bandwidth.
