It was another of those weeks where I spent most of it going back and forth over various topics I could talk about for a video. Some topics weren't fleshed out enough, other topics were pretty disorganized, and overall, not much of what I thought of would work as a cohesive video.
And then! I realized that I had been repeating the same tips and tricks to my students over the past few weeks. I had some downtime between students... so why not repeat it again to you guys? XD
As you can tell, I've been keeping the production value pretty low key for my non-FCNY videos. Things have been getting pretty busy lately, so I've opted to leave my camera on a tiny tripod on my desk for good, so I can turn it on and record any time with no set-up time. Ironically, it's setting up that takes the most time! Makeup, lights, setting up the tripod, sound check, video tests... it all adds up! I figured I can give myself a break on my non-FCNY videos and just up the production value for my reviews once a month. I feel way less burned out this way, and I'm also really loving the casual, down-to-earth feel of these less produced videos. I hope you guys are on board with it too. :)
Well, happy practicing, my self-taught peeps! :D
