Last month, Tristen and I hosted a workshop and it was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. I'm writing this post from a villa in Bali called "Villa Chicken Nugget" (truly living my best life) and realized I forgot my card with the rest of my workshop pictures on them, so I'll have to make this a two part post! But I wanted to tell you all about it before time slips away from me, and because it's 4 am and I have jet lag. You get me.
The idea for the workshop stemmed long ago, in a sense. I've explained it on the original "workshop" tab, but I'll talk about it again for those who didn't read it.
I had people asking me to do workshops all the time. Considering I'm no expert on anything besides Mario Kart, I'm always very flattered with these comments. However, it seems like I would need years of experience, and success to be qualified enough to stand in front of a room full of people who want to learn about what I do, and how to do it. So I would push these comments to the side, replying "yes, maybe someday!"
But then I realized something! When became interested in videography, I was probably 15. Do you know how bad I wished there was a workshop for something like this when I was young? I emailed all of my "idols" asking if they would ever consider hosting one. And they all replied, "maybe someday!"
Can you believe it? In four short years the roles had reversed! I was now the one, replying "maybe someday" to people who look up to me, and thats when I realized, someday had to be NOW.Read More
