AN EVERYDAY ADVENTURE
As two PhD students on PhD student budgets, this trip to Lebanon was a hard-earned and tremendously special vacation for Abbi + Armand. His family is Lebanese, so not only does this video postcard capture their own memories but also layers of family history. Upon seeing the finished product, Abbi said, “Thank you for turning my iPhone videos into a keepsake!”
Something I often hear from people who are starting to use video in their brand is the “awkwardness” that they feel when recording. And trust me, as an introvert who much prefers to spend her time behind the camera (I did go into video production, after all), I’ve had my share of awkward moments on camera as I learned these lessons. When I was traveling in Mexico, I filmed a video postcard + shared my three main tips for keeping awkwardness at bay.
Earlier this summer, my client Rebecca asked me to help her with a surprise travel video as a gift to her parents, who planned this trip for Rebecca, her sisters + their families. Rebecca did a great job (using just her iPhone!) to capture the feel of Provence perfectly. I only wish smell-o-vision was a thing so you could smell those stunning lavender fields!
It is vitally important to our souls as creative pioneers to incorporate a little everyday adventure into our lives. But, what does that even mean?
When I was in Louisville on a recent trip, I reflected on that phrase that has become such a vital part of how I live my life + run my business.
