Back in July, filmmaker Sharyn Paul Brusie and her husband Kevin interviewed several of my clients for the video testimonials that appear on my website.
Sometimes it is not possible to meet clients before they book with me if they are planning from afar. So, to give those prospective clients a glimpse at who I am, we also made a short film that includes footage of the studio, me on the job, and a personal interview. It is now on the website under the information tab, labeled "the experience."
And boy, what an experience it was! Once those lights went on and the camera was rolling I completely clammed up! Really! I can typically talk to anyone with ease about my business and how much I love what I do. But for some reason, I was soooo uncomfortable! I felt almost naked. I wanted to crawl under my chair! Cry! Walk away! But I didn't. I hung in there and tried not to overthink the questions Sharyn was asking of me. She did an amazing job editing those parts of our interview where I don't look nervous- tho she did manage to squeeze in a few that I'm quite mortified of. Sharyn says what I'd call "dorkiness" comes across as "endearing." Uh-huh. You be the judge.
To further explain my level of nervousness, I said that I flew on Air Force One. Everyone who knows me knows that I flew on Air Force Two when I was working at USA Today! How did Air Force One come out of my mouth anyway? I had no idea I said it until reviewing the final film. So, there should be a little * on that part of the film with a link to this graph in my blog post. Very strange.
Anyway, without further delay take a peek and let me know what you think! Please be gentle. :)
