Help Wyatt “Hoss” Rancher be a ScreenChamp

Nov 14, 2011 by

It’s no secret that I like to dabble with social and visual media. The majority of my posts in the last 6 months have revolved around using media for digital storytelling purposes, or as a means of professional development aimed at teachers. So it was with a bit of confidence that I submitted one of my “Wild Wild Web” videos to Tech Smith’s Screen Champ Competition. Notice I said that I felt confident in the submission, not that it would amount to much. The video is campy, unpolished, and clunky in my use of Camtasia, the screen-casting tool I used to create the Wild Wild Web videos.

Imagine my surprise last week when I received an email that said I’d been chosen as one of fifteen finalists! I was thrilled that the character I’ve created, Wyatt “Hoss” Rancher, was deemed worthy enough to be up against some ed-tech heavy hitters like John Sowash and Reg Nakoneshny. There are plenty of other finalists with much more polish than I have as well from industry and other walks of life, so while I don’t expect to win “Best of Show”, I’m terribly flattered to be chosen. Feel free to watch the chosen video below, and take a moment to click the link for voting!
