As good as an Oscar (for me), however is going on YouTube. I think YouTube is a huge social change. It removes the artificial barriers of the past between "real artists" and everyone else and gives everyone the opportunity to be a filmmaker and share slices of their life with the world. By uploading videos I had to "sign up" for YouTube which is really easy and has expanded my YouTube usage to more than just looking at videos. I never knew before that YouTube Channels existed. I am loving it.
With my third video I am feeling more confident. The hardest part of this one was in selecting the interview clips with Ingrid talking and weaving that into the voice-over script which is talking about creativity in drawing. The video follows Ingrid as she creates a portrait life drawing of Olivia with a hat on. Both Ingrid and Olivia love the video and that pleases me a great deal. It also pleases me that I am able to knit video clips into a movie just under 10 minutes long which tells a story worth telling. A comment on YouTube mentioned that it is interesting seeing the artistic process revealed like that, so it seems that there are others enjoying seeing these videos. To me the most valuable thing about this process of making videos is being able to share a little of my passion for art with others. Art is a communicative discipline so this form of communication and this form of communication is perfect for this artist. I hope you enjoy.
