This fall I did something that’s been on my to-do list for a long time—shot a video about my business. I’d been looking for a way to share more with my customers about how I ended up where I am today, my work environment, my inspiration, and my process, and I finally made it happen.
I learned a ton from the experience—most notably, that creating a video is a lot of work! There was a script to write. And a script to memorize. And music to find. And the issue of being super nervous (thank goodness my videographer, Michelle Hayes of Sweet Lime Portrait Design, and her assistant Laura helped me get over my case of the jitters and relax). Beyond that, I had no clue that it would take almost an entire day to capture the audio and video for a 5-minute film! By the time that was over, my dog Jackson and I were ready to collapse from exhaustion. And that was only the beginning; once we finished filming, Michelle and Laura had a big job ahead of them to make the footage into a cohesive video (side note: I now know what “post-production” means).
In the end, though, I’m really glad I did this. Yes, it took time and effort, and for a while there I was a bit of a basket case, but I feel like the video gives my clients a new perspective on my world. You can view the video here. I hope you like it!
