YouTube Closed Captioning

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, January 27, 2016,



I was on YouTube just now when I clicked the Closed Captioning button by accident. And I'm quite impressed by the results on this specific clip. YouTube CC has probably been around for a while and like most automatic translation it does misinterpret a word or two, but the majority is dead on. Pretty impressive.

If you want to see the whole clip, click https://youtu.be/yDa5Mk2LD2I

Photographers vs. Videographers (Parody)

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, January 17, 2016,


I don't do weddings (Ok...I've done two but it was for family only) and I'm not too keen on doing corporate functions either because they feel like you're doing a wedding. I have however done a handful of the latter on special request from clients, so I have experienced first hand the seething hatred and distrust that radiates between photographer and videographer at these events.

Seriously who shows up for work with a camera without a tripod and headsets?! Those are the ultimate symbols of me...

Self-employed (and still loving it!)

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Tuesday, January 12, 2016,
This year I'm celebrating six years of self-employment. It's been fantastic, terrifying and enormously fulfilling. Quite a contrast to the very controlled ten years I spent working for a boss in a large organisation.

What has changed? Everything and nothing. 

Everything because once you've tasted freedom you can never go back to working for someone else. You change. You can't stand being back in the sheep enclosure...it suffocates you! Never before have I had so much enjoyment and satisfaction ...

First Counselling@ video on YouTube

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Saturday, January 9, 2016,


Here is the first video in the series. The second clip will be on their YouTube channel soon. Counselling@ does some really valuable work in disadvantaged communities and schools, so how about supporting them. Given the amount of bad news in the media, we can all do with a few more good deeds everywhere.

Ready, set, go! A brand new lineup for the year

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, January 4, 2016,
Ok, enough with the holiday laziness already. I have a good feeling about this year. See, I have this theory: in business one year is up, the other down. Last year was s**t horrible, so I predict a VERY up year this year. As in waaaay up. On the top shelf...



Currently in production is a large project for the Faculty of Education. We managed to finish the first portion of this project in record time towards the end of 2015, and the results are on YouTube.

Also, just to show that DVD is far from ...

Welcome back! It's 2016

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Monday, January 4, 2016,


Welcome to a new year! Yes, I'm starting early this year. Why? Because I have project deadlines to make by the end of the month...that and I'm super lazy so I'll need a running start. How lazy you may ask? So lazy I'm recycling my Twitter pics to do my first blog update. Yes, I know. That's terrible. I have no values...

So anyway, here's to a great new year with plenty of things to get excited about.

But first, a quick dip in the pool. And then maybe a snack. Or lunch even...
