I have spent the last 4 days at the F+W Studios just outside Cincinnati, Ohio recording videos.
F+W Studios is the parent company of both Interweave, the company that brings us the magazine Cloth Paper Scissors, and North Light Media, which published my 2 books among many others.
I completed 4 mixed media workshops that will be available in June as streaming video, downloads, and DVDs.
The studio is the real deal, with multiple lights, cameras, and monitors.
They created a set that had the vibe of a corner in a NYC loft.
It was even decorated with my own work.
I worked with Amy Jones, who played multiple rolls including producer, director and on-camera student for 2 of my videos. We had a ton of fun and I so wanted to take the clapperboard home. But I left it there cause I want to be invited back even more.
Cherie Haas, whose name you might recognize as the person behind most of the postings on the Cloth Paper Scissors blog, was my on-camera student for the other 2 videos.
Erin is definitely one of the 2 best camera operators in the business.
And Justin is the other.
No team is complete without a mascot and the studio has Ellie. And that is Ellie's dad, also known as Al and the best photographer who shot all the stills for my videos.
Wish I could bring you these videos immediately but June will be here in the blink of an eye!
