So I this idea, I’ll do a short, quick holiday video. Sixty seconds max. And you know what? Wizard has time now, I’ll ask him to film it for me. It’ll take us, what, a half hour?
Um, yeah, I forgot a tiny little detail — Wizard is a perfectionist. Suddenly, we were doing test shots all over the house trying to find the best location and even moved the Christmas tree and rearranged furniture. Yep, even the Fed Ex guy was amused, because of course he came by to deliver something I’d ordered as we’re filming right in front of the front window. Totally embarrassing.
Although two days before the UPS guy came by while I was cleaning with music blaring and there’s a possibility that I might have been singing…and dancing…with a mop. However as far as I know, that is not on video so I’m going to deny it ever happened
Anyway, we finally got the video to Wizard’s satisfaction, until we uploaded it and realized the sound was too low. So we did it again the next day. We’re getting the hang of this, although our next goal is to learn to edit the videos, making them tighter and cleaner.
So to the answer to the question: How long does it take to do a sixty second video? TWO DAYS!
If you haven’t seen it on FB or Twitter, I’ll try to embed it here: And if you’ve seen it, skip down!
That’s me unedited, just chatting. But it’s also sincere, I really want readers to know how much I appreciate them.
In fun and slightly random news, Bailey Dog is coming over today and is staying with us until Sunday
I’m hoping to blog on Friday, but if not I’ll check in next week. I wish you all a warm, safe and joyous holiday with your family and friends!
