« Part 4: Hibiscus Vase #4 or, A Vase Takes Shape Part 5 of Videos series Part 6: or, Very Slow Going »

This is around ten minutes of my Echo, my Shadow, and me, in front of the camera, hashing things out. It’s part of the process. I had a lot of hashing to do, given the fact that I was trying to work out a design, create the Piece, and shoot my first video. And, learn to present a video for others to enjoy, and, mebees, find of some benefit. (It could also be seen as a plea for help from my betters.)

I just watched this all the way through before putting it here. And, uh, quite frankly, I had no idea the kind of videos it would be grouped with in YT, until it got to the very end, and the next video started loading. I guess, from now on, I’ll give some longer, harder thought to the titles I choose. “Getting To Know Me”. What was I thinking?

OOOOOOPPPPSSS yeah every project has its own learning curves.

maybe it should be tagged “Getting to know my editing program” or something like that.

on a side note, I loved how the video was starring “hibiscus branch.” Classic.

I came very close to calling #6 (loading now) “Cuttus Interruptus”. Can you imagine, Tooch?

Sometimes the “60 grit gouge” can save the day.
