We spend a third of our lives lying in bed, and this is not a new thing. It is perhaps the thing we share with our ancestors more than any other aspect of life. Here I talk and talk and talk about beds and related matters for what may seem like an age, but actually is only quite a long time.
I thought of three points to make about beds, and thought that these would be enough for a video. As is my habit, though, as I rambled, I sidetracked myself into more and more other things. Had there been a floor manager on duty in the studio, he would have been looking at his watch and waving at me franticly, but I just kept going. I might have chopped this into three smaller videos had I not embarked on the misguided gag involving the showing to the camera of various products that might have been paid-for placements. These gestures would have made no sense in a video which didn't end the way this one does.
I end with a tribute to all the 'unboxing' videos out there, where apparently the box is more interesting than the product in it.
It may amaze you to learn that this edit is fifteen minutes shorter than the material I shot.
This is the first video I have ever shot with my new camera. I did have problems, and it isn't better in every way, but the sharpness of the picture is noticeable, and the depth of field is shallower, which explains to some degree the moments when things go a bit blurry, and in the shot where I switch on the bedside lamp, I am amazed at how little noise there is in the black before the light comes on.
