Working

Ever thought, “what the heck does Ryan do to make money?” Or maybe, “what does a web developer do all day?”

Well, here is a 3 hour snippet of my life – Monday night from 7:30 to 11ish (sped up and music added for your entertainment). This was taken a couple evenings ago using a new program, ScreenFlow, that I had to buy for a client the other day. I used iMovie to speed up the video and add the music. It took all night for ScreenFlow to convert the file (3 hour screencast) into a .mov and then it took iMovie about 5 hours to import the .mov file. In all, it took almost 24 hours start to finish… and my computer was a little slow today because of it all ;)

Without further adu… me… working:


A Typical 3 Hours from Ryan Burns on Vimeo.

  1. Oh, and if you notice, at the very beginning of the video I disappear for a couple seconds (about 10-15 minutes) that is when Asher got out of bed terrified because a fly was buzzing in his ear… So, I had to go rescue him and hang in his room until he calmed down… all part of the job.

  2. I just bought Screen Flow too and I love it. I do screencast demos/progress updates on projects I’m working on for clients. Also, Vimeo looks like a really cool way to get videos published. I’ll have to check them out. I have been thinking blip.tv might be a good way to get high quality video on your site too. Great stuff here man!

  3. lol..I think my favorite is either seeing Jenn in the background or trying to figure out what took more time, chin stroking or typing?? :-)

  4. yes… it is like people who can’t talk without using their hands… I can’t code websites without rubbing my gotee ;)
