What the Dickens is going on?

This is a little spoofy video report I made about Charles Dickens with my friend, Stacey Morgan from Morganic Films, for the Limebird Writers site where I also blog. I thought I would share it here too. Apologies that my voice is at times hard to hear over the sound of wind and the sea! We had a few microphone issues…

Hope you all have a good weekend!

  8. As I mentioned over at the Limebirds post version, I really enjoyed how much humor you both put into this. It’s just the right length and has just the right sensibilities. I’d love to see you do more video! πŸ™‚

  9. I enjoyed this video. This is the second time I’ve seen you in ‘action’. The first time was your New Year’s Eve one on your blog. Nice meeting you again. I love your humour and look forward to seeing more.

    Limebird Writers blog is now a new interest for me thanks for your post. Have a lovely weekend, Vanessa.

  13. Funky hair colour, Ms Chapman – the red is very lovely on you. For some reason I can only watch the first 34 seconds and then it tells me there’s an error. Tried on youtube direct as well, maybe it’s just playing up tonight. Will look forward to seeing the whole thing. πŸ™‚

    • Actually I was surprised when I saw that my hair was red on the video, I thought I was blonde! I think because my natural colour is quite dark, and I dye it myself, sometimes it just ends up a bit red instead. But that’s ok. Ah yes, not sure why it’s not working for you tonight, hope it works next time you try!

      • D’you know I hadnt even’t noticed your hair looking redder! After I read your comments I thought ‘Oh, maybe I’ve ballsed up the colour correction and not realised,’ but nothing else looks red when it shouldn’t, so I guess it must just be a trick of the light!

  15. Your “That’s enough, now!” made me guffaw.

    The video would have been much better, however, had you shown off your very photogenic uvula. Remember that next time.

  16. Loved it! First of all, I could listen to you talk all day. Second, I want your hair color. Third, I can actually imagine that being a real report done by some twinkie news reporter. And I enjoyed Stacey rambling on incoherently about Dickens, that was fun.

  17. Lovely and funny, with a very Bridget Jones kind of vibe. May we look forward to you standing outside the former haunts of other prominent writers, or does your eternal devotion to Dickens preclude that?

  19. I was only able to see this this week because my computer speakers are dead at home, so I had to remember to view it at work, where my brain oddly goes into work mode and forgets other stuff I mean to remember. First, I loved it–really it was exceptional. Here is one reaction though–suddenly you were no longer a two-dimensional blog being, you were a three-dimensional animated being. It was very strange. Second, I understood every word you said, which makes me wonder if your fellow Brits think you don’t talk right, i.e. that you were corrupted by your years in the U.S. I personally have extra challenges being from the American South, so watching the Olympics was….Interesting, language-wise. Both of you were geniuses. Stacey was hysterical. Reminded me of opera I once saw where everyone is in black tights, looking like mimes, no attempt to do period costumes or any of that. Stacey’s “disguises” were what made it so funny.
