A video I made

December 1, 2016

Here’s a video I made earlier this week for Drifter Organics. It’s an idea that was floating around in my head for a few months, but fully manifested itself when I storyboarded the entire video out Tuesday at 2am, then finally pressed “publish” yesterday.

People always ask my mom and me similar questions about our body butters:

  • Are they safe for my face?
  • How much do I use?
  • Why does my body butter feel grainy?

And since ordering online is always difficult because you can’t actually see or sample the product in person, I thought a video would provide the best visual experience for all those wondering about the texture/feel/look/application of the body butters. I used the extra footage we shot for our Kickstarter campaign to stitch together this little video.

I’m watching a lot more filmmakers and vloggers on YouTube, which is getting me inspired to make more videos. Videos take 1,000x more time and effort for me because I’m just not familiar with the medium as much as I am with photography, but creating little videos like this make me happy. That’s all.
