Lights, camera, oh wait hold on

January 13, 2012

Day 12

So due to yesterday’s intervention I went to help my sister create a beauty vlog this morning. I gave her instructions on what to have ready for when I got there.

Anna’s list:
1. Outline what we are trying to accomplish
2. Set up lights (the beauty dish we are lucky enough to borrow)
3. Hang up back drop (black blanket)
4. Figure out what camera you want to use (iPhone 4s)
5. Write down what you are gonna say

I show up at 11:30 and everything is set up and ready to go. I’m actually impressed till I see that the camera (iPhone) was turned vertically. Where have I gone wrong? Has anyone seen a vertical tv or computer? Why do people film vertically? Easy 90 degree fix. Ok ready to go. Lights, camera, action… Ummm… wait I keep forgetting what I’m gonna say.

Well did you write a script? Oh you didn’t. Ugh actors (eye roll). I’m sure even Jim Carry memorized a script back when he did stand up. This isn’t freestyle Eminem. If anyone should know that even some kind of outline is helpful if not totally necessary it should be someone who has 2 mil hits on their video. Or are you too good to memorize lines now? Did that successful video have a script? Well yes it did. Tisk tisk. Luckily I was there to save the day.

By the time I walked the dog she was prepared with a little outline to keep her on track. See that wasn’t so bad. With a guideline and some of my tricks of the trade it only took another couple times… multiplied by lots of tries till we got it.

My favorite part of the day is when my sister said, “I’m over this. I didn’t know it was going to be this much work.” Geez and she hasn’t even edited it yet. I wonder if she remembers yesterday when she asked me oh so provokingly if 1 video a week was too much for me? I can’t wait to repeat it to her. Isn’t intervention great?!

Everyone keep your makeupless eyes open for the amazing You’re Not Pretty Enough beauty vlog by world renowned make-up artist Anna Brown.

The beauty dish… makes sure you don’t have any ugly shadows

 She picked up mom’s Starbucks addiction.
After she reads this blog she’ll wish she never interventioned me. Mwuahhahaha.
