…I’m pretty sure it contained Easter. That was on a Sunday but then…most days feel like Sunday.
We’ve gone fully online live and in person both for Instagram, Facebook and most importantly…classes.
It all started in early April when we began making videos of all class subjects. Of course we needed a storyboard.
We needed to get new equipment…Better cameras, lights with filters and an overhead mike…
The filming takes about three days for each subject and then several more days of Nikka editing.
Nikka also followed the video instructions to make sure everything was easy to understand for the viewer. At this stage of our work reset, all filming was done in the studio.
Along with this there has been a steady stream of book inscriptions and shipping for “WHAT IF…We Have the Power to Change Our Lives“, my new book that was officially published on April 7th and made available worldwide on Amazon.
A world of thanks to Judith Rochelle Nelson, my template for doing good, for ordering 100 copies of “WHAT IF…” to send to her beautiful network of friends!
Office Dog Kita inspects another days shipment.
Early in the month I did a live talk with followers of @NanRaeFineArt on Instagram.
It was great fun saying hi to everyone around the world. Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, Japan, Dubai, Germany, Italy and so many more. I’ll be doing another live chat on Instagram with Benjamin Darling, my publisher at Laughing Elephant, later this month.
Around the middle of April we had the first live online class with Wisteria being the first subject. Office Dog supervised the setup that now had to be in the office instead of the studio for the best reception.
Ten days later we had a second live online class for painting Bamboo and for this one we had an additional camera and worked out some of the sound issues. The story board was still needed to make sure all elements of the subject were covered and in good order.
Nikka keeps on top of everything while we go live.
After the live class, the video is checked before making it available to students.
We continue to film process videos for Instagram.
The last week of April I had a live online conversation on Facebook with Benjamin Darling, my publisher at Laughing Elephant Books.
So, all that happening in April with me never knowing if it was Sunday, Tuesday or perhaps Friday!
I wish you peace. Stay safe!!
