I’ve never applied for something like it before. 1) I never believed I was good enough. 2) I couldn’t stand the way I came across on camera and was again uncertain of any skills I possessed to make a different entry.
Yesterday, I filmed myself in ONE take. I’ve learned through the few videos I’ve made this year I come across best when I just turn on the camera and talk. Being scripted or doing it over seems too stiff and forced. Years ago I learned giving speeches works best when I have a general idea and speak from the heart. Obviously I do well, so why not use the same logic for films? Yes, I do take time to edit and snip out blips or unneeded segments. And you know what it works!
As everyone else is sharing, so will I. Behold my entry. Originally it was longer and included many other stops within the tour. Then I realized it’s a highlight not an autobiography. Also, this is about running, not every sport ever to wiggle it’s way into my life. An example of a cut segment? The bike in my kitchen.
Also, I know it’s long, but I’m entertaining and you don’t realize the time is passing.
Leave a comment if you also applied, love to spread the love.
