Producing a Making-of Film

Avis's Owl

I’m a big fan of artist’s making-of films so now that I have my own camera set-up over the drawing table I wanted to give it a try.

I did a Live Stream to Facebook yesterday which, in my mind, was a complete disaster because I kept incessantly clearing my throat while talking.  It was so damn annoying and embarrassing.  Admittedly, 45 years of smoking and the fact that I spend so much time alone I rarely talk (except to Oscar and occasionally myself) contributed to this problem. While viewers were very kind and generous with their positive feedback, I knew after watching the playback that I would never do that again.

So, I am going to pre-produce my videos – which will allow me to have much better control over their quality.

After a day of experimentation and a string of failures with hardware and software I finally found a way to produce the results I am after.

never give up
