For me, it’s so difficult to see and hear myself on video. Actually, I think it is for just about everyone. In my case I had extra anxiety. I had a double jaw surgery a couple years ago. I think I now look “weird”, like my bottom jaw was chopped….and it was! I don’t look like the me I always knew. I imagine I’ll get used to the new look in time.
Recently, the Akronist, a website featuring compelling stories about people and events in the greater Akron area, did a story about my collage art. As a professional videographer, I always try to calm down people I interview before the shoot. Now I know how much your nerves can act up when the camera is rolling. Needless to say, it was difficult for me to watch, but Chris Miller and his crew did a great job with the story and the putting together the video. I’m very appreciative that Chris took an interest in my art and wanted to do a story about it. You can read the full story below.
