My daughter and I are in Thailand where we visited the famous, sprawling Chatuchak Market and where I experienced déjà vu. Before our trip, I’d produced a video on antiques sourcing at Chatuchak for the inimitable Toma Clark Haines, the Antiques Diva. The place is a giant, bustling maze, and I can now say from firsthand experience that you need an expert to find the real treasures.
If timeliness is more important than high-end video production, you can quickly create and post video footage to your social media channels. There are many options: 1. use your computer’s webcam to record a video to upload, 2. record a video message on skype (as an mp4) and post that, or 3. *easiest of all*, use your cell phone to record a video and post directly to youtube, facebook and other channels. It’s a great idea to save all your videos to your own channel on youtube and use youtube’s fast ‘share to social media’ feature.

The trade off is the low audio quality.
