Courage is the willingness to act in spite of fear – MICHAEL HYATT
I’m keeping my word. I’m staying away from blogging. But I never said I won’t ever try VLOGGING. Wink wink.
I’ve been wanting to do this for a very long time. It just so happens that January 1, 2016 seemed like a great day to start. I have mixed feelings about it. I got the bug and I’m full emotion to try this everyday. But I’m holding my horses and sticking to the plan — once a week.
I do want to try a 10 Day Vlog Challenge though, sometime next week or two with local creative peeps. It’s a great way to beef up the Youtube channel and push hard on the brand. Maybe a great time for collabs. Let’s see.
So, I just finished editing and uploading VLOG 001. How do I feel? Nervous, afraid, and happy. Nervous and afraid because I don’t know what friends will think? What about my parents? Do I look and sound silly or the contrary? Do I sound like I’ve done this before? Am I interesting? These questions will kill me if I keep meditating on them. But I won’t. I’m happy I was able to share my story, my intentions, my journey, and my voice — with the worst camera angle.
So what is this all about?
As always, it’s my personal life. My journey of being a dad, husband, filmmaker, and musician.
Rant heading your way.
Darn it, I want to get things done! and that’s my biggest rant for 2016. Can you push me and can I push you to grow!? Can I finally bring you the entertainment I’ve been wanting to bring you. There’s a big shell I want to break and I believe showcasing myself in this form will help. I almost did not do it today, but I did. I grabbed the camera just shot it!
So, I edited and hit publish. And guess what? I’m feeling an adrenaline right now I haven’t felt for a while. It feels good.
What do I plan to use?
- iPhone 6S Plus
- Canon 7D
- Rode Mic
- Final Cut Pro X
- Canva.com or Photoshop for Graphics
- My own music and stock free sound fx (inside FCPX)
- Two small (and cheap) LED lights and House Lights.
- Vlogging Spreadsheet and iPhone Notes
I don’t want to be technical about it. Because I know I could. I want to this to be as raw and simple as possible. Please, scream at me if it starts looking like a movie. If so, then I’m setting myself up for failure.
Note: You can do this too with a less expensive gadgets. iPhone, iMovie, house lights, and paper. Go!
Really. What Do I Want Out Of This?
- A Stronger Personal Brand
- To Talk and Communicate without Insecurities.
- To Join, Create, And Inspire a Community of Creative People.
This is not reality tv. This not me giving up my privacy. I will never do that. It’s just me telling a personal story.
