Thus far I've been aiming for that duration, because I think it's a good length for the sort of project work that I do. However there are often times when I have something really fun or interesting recorded, but I can't include it because it would blow out the run time of the video. Usually this stuff just gets left on the hard drive, and I forget about it.
Rather than continue to let this footage go to waste, I'm now going to put it into a new playlist series that I'm calling "Spare Parts".
So what is a Spare Parts video? Generally it is a video of less than 3 minutes total run time, with content that is based on a single process, rather than on a completed project. More than likely it is a sub process that has been broken out from a standard length project video.
This video is the first in this new series; I hope you enjoy watching it!
