Every day I make a commercial for Studio 5 with hosts Brooke Walker and Darin Adams. By "make" I mean I write, shoot, and edit the promo. They're not very fancy or time-consuming like some of my other projects, but they're ALWAYS fun - just like the show!
Yesterday we needed video of someone wearing jewelry. Brooke suggested I model the jewelry, and Darin could shoot it.
No big deal right?
Wrong! Since I had to edit the promo myself, I had to watch the video of me over and over again. I can't tell you how many flaws popped into my head! I don't think a promo has EVER been so hard to edit!
I tried to be objective and imagine it was someone else. That made it easier, but I still cringe every time I see the promo come on T.V.
I think I'll leave "professional model" off my resume for now.
