Any word on that bamboo tutorial?

I am going to make bamboo next week and would love any tips. Thank you for sharing Brandi.

Alright, the bamboo video is up...




Upon watching it, I realized I forgot to put the mic higher up since I was standing instead of sitting this time. And I'm much too lazy to re-record, so make sure you turn your volume all the way up if you want to hear.

Oh, and I look like a whale in this! It's amazing how much fatter I look when shot from below. UGH! I have karaoke videos I shot lost week and I look about 50 lb. lighter. Y'all are just lucky I'm not vain. LOL!

I hope to do a few more videos, so pointers are always welcome.

The things I already know are:

1. I need better lighting.
2. I need to position the mic correctly.
3. I need to "script" these out and practice once before recording.
4. I need to stop smacking my lips when I talk.

Anything else suggestions you can think of would be helpful.

Brandi,
Thank you so much! I just finished watching the hibiscus tutorial. You did a great job explaining your steps. I can't wait to try it!

Brandi, from what I can see your video looks really good, but no matter what volume control I raised (speakers, keyboard, and screen) I couldn't hear you except for an occasional giggle here and there - sorry. I know you don't want to do it again (and, trust me, I don't blame you), but I think it would be worth it. I feel I'm just missing too much without the sound.

I loved the Hibiscus video....very good. However the bamboo video...I couldn't hear. I turned everything up and not able to hearyour explaination. Although I am a visual learner anyway I think I could reproduce.
Thanks for sharing your work. That's very nice of you. Take Care and I hope to see more of your sugar art on video.
Clarissa

I knew the volume was very low, but I can hear it on my computer. Maybe my volumes just go higher.

Darn.

Thanks Brandi, I think you have already listed everything you need to do. I don't have anything to add.

Ok, I re-recorded and it's uploading now.

This one was done very quickly, and I didn't realized I moved stuff to different places after the first video, but you get the idea I think. Even if I look totally disorganized. lol

Much better!! Thanks.

Oh, just one more thing to add to your list (of things not to do): Don't mix colors of your liquor. ha ha (vodka and Brandi) tee hee (my stupid sense of humor rearing its ugly head again).
