I decided that I would create a video about my own essay, since I understand it and the emotion behind it best. I also decided to not include the element of The Book of Mormon in the video. Here's what I felt about it:
First, I felt really awkward talking about my essay. I think that it would be better to introduce someone else's essay. I felt that I was being redundant because what I was saying is already in my essay. I also felt uncomfortable advertising my own writing.
Second, I was planning on including the element of The Book of Mormon, but I had a hard time fitting it in well enough that I felt comfortable posting it.
Overall, I think that talking about other's essays will be more comfortable and natural since you can't delve very deep in such a short time. As for the inclusion of The Book of Mormon, maybe it would be more doable in talking about other's essays because you wouldn't be explaining as much, leaving more time for that.
