Making videos and making lemonade
I spent the whole day making videos for my classes tomorrow. If it wasn’t for the coronavirus, I wouldn’t have gotten round to this at all. I had intended on making these videos years ago, I just never got round to it thanks to the excuses I gave yesterday.
Due to time limits, the quality of the videos isn’t very good. It’s my first time making them so I’m learning a lot, and I don’t really mind that the quality isn’t there. I’m more pleased at myself for shipping them, that’s usually half the battle. So, at least in this respect, I have the horrible virus to thank.
I now have a new respect for video editors, let me tell you! But this was another thing that I found I could get caught up in. It was fun to make them, and I want to make more.
I also found that making videos in your second language isn’t that easy. I ended up making the videos in English, but they are for a Japanese audience and I think it’d be better to do them in Japanese at some stage.
So I hope this was the impetus I need to kick start some video work. I have many ideas, but first I have to learn how to make the videos and I’m glad that I have this little project to learn from.
If you’re curious, and willing to give me constructive criticism, please check the videos out!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
