So as part of art week, I thought I'd try and show you video.
Because it's easy, right? Just shoot a video and throw it up on YouTube and call it good, right?
Yeah, um...not so much.
But after a few days of futzing around with it and thinking I needed to learn big complicated video software first (by way of procrastination, of course), I pulled up iMovie, dug out the overhead camera rig, and gave 'er a go.
Disclaimer:It's not fabulous. But it's okay for a first try. There's some rambly bits, some shaky camera bits, and more than a few vocal tics. (I'm fond of "but, um...". Make it a drinking game. My video will look better after the first three minutes if you do.)
And with that, I give you...my first sketchbook tour. Enjoy. :)
p.s. There will be more. I liked this. It was fun. And I have many things to show you. Maaaany thiiiiiings. (insert sparkly magic sound effect and falling glitterbombs here.)
Oh, and:The links I said I'd try to get.
- This is the camera rig I use.
- This is the animal poses site I use almost every night. It's free. I set it to five minutes and just go.
- This is the class of Louise Gale's that I couldn't remember the name of. (It was actually Nature Trail Sketchbook, which she's no longer teaching, but this one is her new format and...I took this one too. I need an intervention.)
- These are the Mission Gold watercolors that I was drooling on.
- This is the hand*book sketchbook I showed first.
I think that's all I promised. If not, drop me a comment and I'll update.
