I’ve been working on videos for weeks. I posted my very first craft tutorial on youtube tonight. Hooray! I’m excited and relieved to finally cross that first hurdle.
I went with an easy-to-make project: paper wrapped candies for Valentines Day. It’s a super easy and quick craft, so why did that dang video take so long?
Video production has a steep learning curve. I’m still learning my new video camera (the Osmo pocket which I’m in love with) as well as my studio lights, and Adobe Premiere Pro software, not to mention Adobe Spark for the thumbnails and Epidemic Sound for the music. That list is feeling a bit like Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, Oh my!
But the first video is posted. The 2nd one should be up in a couple of days (monster mini-journals) and I’d like to get a tutorial for baby nifflers up before I leave town next week for Capricon Sci-Fi convention.
Since the YouTube description field is short, I’ll repeat the materials list below. (these are Amazon affiliate links if they start with amzn)Links to materials used: (these are Amazon affiliate links if they start with amzn)
