Hi, everybody! It’s Jon from The Aspie Dialogues. As promised, I have for you an impromptu behind the scenes look at the making of The Aspie Dialogues Gets Pulled Over, filmed way back in July and shown here, on The Aspie Epilogue, in August.
In particular, what we at The Aspie Dialogues wanted to do with this video was to be more transparent with the process of how we make each episode. For this episode, however, we chose to begin lightly with a microphone experiment.
We wanted to see if we could rig an XLR shotgun microphone to an average smartphone. The results as you can plainly hear in the video turned out inconclusive. We couldn’t tell a difference between having it plugged in or not, and I think I discovered the answer later on…
You see, an XLR microphone requires power — usually about 48v worth. There are special devices on the market made specifically for this purpose. Rest assured, we now have possession of one such device, and we will soon try again.
To synopsize, we needed a power source for the microphone that we didn’t have. That’s why we couldn’t tell any difference in the audio quality (not that our methods were terribly scientific to begin with, I’ll admit).
Now for some bad news:
Due to some other professional responsibilities in my life, we anticipate filming the next episode of The Aspie Dialogues sometime in November.
I know this is disappointing to some, but I promise there is a method to my madness. The show must go on, and go on, it shall. We just need a little more time to sort out time commitments. Everything will work out; please be patient as we sort everything out.
Thank you for staying by us, and we hope to return to you with more and better content soon!
Rock on, Spectrumites!
I think this version came out much better than the last one, don’t you? Expect a behind the scenes look at part of our production process sometime in September. As always, find peace with yourself, within yourself. Rock on, Spectrumites!
Sorry, I’m a little late with this one. I had a scratched cornea just as I was getting ready to edit this, which pushed my ability to edit this back a week. Better late than never, right? I’m trying some new things with this one, so please leave any feedback you may have for it in the comments section. Thank you!
Hi, everybody! I wanted to check back in while it’s still Autism Awareness Month with an exciting cross-collaboration between the Aspie Epilogue and my other website, CGE Studios. I call it…
THE ASPIE DIALOGUES! *cue trumpets*
What is it?
Why, it’s a monthly companion video to the Aspie Epilogue, of course! I wanted to bring CGE Studios and the Aspie Epilogue together to create something truly unique to the discussion of Autism Awareness and the next steps it needs to take. I’ve been working hard to bring this particular episode out while it’s still Autism Awareness Month.
*Psst… There’s still 75 minutes left. That still counts, right?*
Why create a video series in conjunction with the blog? The blog’s not ending, is it?
Chillax! The blog’s not going anywhere! I just wanted to expand the conversation about Autism Awareness to more audiences. The blog will still continue as planned. In fact, viewers can even suggest new topics for the video series to discuss. In May, we’re going to discuss a topic that’s hitting hard and close to home for many people, right now. More on that when I post it.
Where can I watch this fabled video series of legend? I must see it!
Easy there! I love the enthusiasm, but let’s keep the excitement manageable. You will be able to view all the episodes of The Aspie Dialogues right here on The Aspie Epilogue! See how easy that is? In fact, here’s the pilot episode below. Enjoy!
I hope this was a happy Autism Awareness Month for everyone! I’m looking forward to next year! Peace out.
