I am continuing, in fits and starts, with the journey of producing my “Get Drawing” book. In the process I am also filming myself drawing the sketches that may eventually appear in the book. So the journey is one of broadening discovery as well. Discovering how to set the camera up in the best possible way; how to edit the resulting video; how to make it interesting;how to add a narration (still to come) etc.
On one of our recent hot nights (27 degrees Celsius at 11.30pm!) my thoughts found their way to ideas for the book and I remembered that I thought my new camera (purchased for my trip overseas last year) had some sort of way of connecting to my smart phone. So the very next day I experimented and discovered that the camera could, indeed, connect via wifi to my smartphone so that I could remotely see what the camera could see, zoom in or out, and then take a picture or start recording a video. Woohoo!
So, I’d love you to take a look at my first try and leave any comments. Just in case you think I’m working very fast, I have sped the video up. Future videos will hopefully have tighter editing etc. but I was excited to get this out there. The beautiful music accompanying the video is my talented brother, Ilan Zagoria.
