er, um ... i submitted 3 videos for the PDC Show Off event (/cameraFlow, /cfWorldWind, /mceSapi). the first 2 actually made the cut to be in the show! anyway, i jotted down some random notes during the show ... in case i try to show off again next year

loud music and destroying things is fun (The Finalizer)
making the audience read is bad. especially if they have bad eyes and/or have been drinking
commercial videos are less cool
the channel9 style doesnt work that great either
excessive video editing, transitions and stuff are unnecessary
dont fill the 5 minute time slot with fluff. do the cool stuff and get out
remember that the audience is there to have fun, so make your video fun
narration during the demo works fine. seeing the developer talk before getting to the demo is boring
really quick intros for branding seem ok?
a camcorder is a necessity. my web cap clips were the lowest quality and just barely usable
funny, creative, unique = great (Barcode Blitz, Exploring .NET)
other favorites were the great products (SQL Intellisense, RoboCoaster)
do a quick thanks at the end so audience knows when to clap
