I really liked the storytelling when I first heard it. And when the video went live on the company web site I thought: How can I share that on my blog? Well, maybe you are interested in the steps it took to make the video.
I recorded Gerd standing at a flipchart and telling the story.
I watched the story and made a first draft video.
Got some feedback on this video.
Made a second refined version. Got some updated graphics from Teisha.
Some of the feedback considered the “missing” audio. (I had not done any audio until then, because I wanted the video to work without any audio. So I tried to come up with a base story – I did that by recording something while watching the video. It took me three takes.
I took the audio and video to Chelsea and asked her to come up with the story she would tell.
I recorded Chelsea, cleaned the audio and merged everything.
I have been guest blogging on the company blog. If you are into software test, this might be interesting for you. If not it still might be interesting: What would you advise yourself as your own future self?
The tunnel is an old symbol for a passage. On photographs they also make good models: Symmetry, interesting shape, often intriguing details.
I love this one in particular. It always reminds me of the fact that even if you do not see the exit and it looks like a dead end, there are plenty of exits to this tunnel – always. Why would there be a tunnel?

When you are in the middle of Austria there are a lot of things you would not expect. A huge chinese portal is one of these things. But it fits there like a glove. So always think outside the box and expect the unexpected. Maybe trying something which does not fit there is a solution.
