Diary, day twenty-eight

Beautiful sunny days call for good music. A few days ago I couldn’t get enough of Hall & Oates. Today, I have this spinning around in my head

It was a gorgeous sunny day too. Nothing better than Greece in the spring sun. I also had a really good day trying to get the first part of my kickstarter video recorded. I say “try” because we didn’t actually manage to do it. Turns out there was too much ambient noise in the background that was distracting, & we didn’t have an external mic. We did use the time to set up & try & figure out location & how to shoot it.

Looking at the test shots, I’m happy. We figured out that if my videographer asks me questions, then I can talk about the project naturally without sounding forced or rehearsed. I think that’s so important. I loved my first video, but it was stiff… & more importantly, I was awkward. I hate feeling like I’m talking at people. Any way. He’s getting a mic sorted & we’re going to try again on Thursday. After that, we have a lunch dat to set up & also recording of the prep. I’m excited for this video.

Can’t wait to show everyone what I’ve been working on! In the mean time, watch out… tomorrow is pizza day. The video looks comic because it’s all in fast-forward so that I could condense it down into less than five minutes (be honest, anything longer than that & your focus dwindles), but I’m happy with it.
