I felt that putting on a full face of makeup and filming "B-roll" type footage would take away from the vloggy, down-to-earth feel of this video. And, like I say at the beginning of the video, it was quite a shock to discover just how much footage I got of trying these piccolos! As soon as I grabbed all the raw footage and dropped it together in a new timeline, the whole thing came out to an hour and 30 minutes long!!
I know you guys want to see as much of the journey as possible, but a video that's more than an hour long about how I requested the instruments, tried the instruments, paid for one instrument, and returned the other instruments was not going to cut it. That just seemed absurd.
Hence the slightly awkward explanation in the beginning of the video. I figured it was better to be transparent with you guys about what happened rather than trying to cover it up. Things happen, and I'm only human. Why hide that? :) I hope you guys understand and enjoy the content anyway.
In any case, I'm really enjoying this new little guy. Any ideas for names? ;)
