On Videos



I used to make YouTube videos. I'm not sure if any of you read my blog when I did, but I did. I had a monthly, then bi-monthly video series, and I abandoned the project near the end of last Summer. There were a ton of intense personal things going on, and I just wasn't in the mood to try anything new with the videos, and they really did need something new. I love the format of the videos, and I love all the imperfections. I never set out to make YouTube videos that rivaled films. They were always meant to be a little sneak peak into different moments throughout the allotted time period, and that was that. However, after Summer ended and life was chaotic, I noticed that I was in the habit of filming the same scenes in each little video. Life is very monotonous sometimes (most of the time), and I realized that it was probably annoying. Though to be fair, I don't think anyone watched those videos.

I've been thinking about making videos again a lot lately, and though I still haven't brought myself to pick up the camera to film anything, it's still an idea floating around. Every blogger is doing YouTube now though, and my videos are nothing like those. I'm not sure what will happen with the channel, but I just can't get it off my mind these days.

  1. You should go for it! Despite so many other bloggers making videos, you are unique in your own way, and I am sure over time you will become even better at it. I have been wanting to get into video making as well. It's probably so fun xx

  3. Bloody well just GO FOR IT, woman! You make the point yourself, every one is making videos these days and 99 times out of 100 they are all the same thing...so if yours was different to that it would be even better!

    Also I really can't put into words how much I love your blog. Seriously. The art is amazing - do you sell your work? I would absolutely LOVE to have something of yours on my wall, it's all so simple and beautiful.

    Absolute fangirl, here!

  4. You should go for it girl! I'd love to watch your video creations and really if it's something that you've done and enjoyed making, you should just try it again! Sometimes life gets in between but that doesn't mean you can't come back to what you were doing before! I think it sound amazing and like I said, I'd absolutely love to see what you make! xx
