My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.
I’ve been working hard on the video version of my post from last Monday about the results of the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show. I’ve been using a software program from Serif called MoviePlus X6 Digital Edition. Some programs have steeper learning curves than others and this one has been a challenge. Anyway I was able to create a beginner’s video. It’s got lots of mistakes and is far from polished, but it will give you a lot more insight into the show than my normal blogs. Click here to view the video on YouTube. Hope you enjoy it.
Please let me know if you’d like to see more videos and I’ll try to create them. (This is not a generic question. I really need to get some feedback and this means you!) I’m sure as time goes by, they’ll get a little more professional.
I want to publicize this first video, so I will leave this post for the entire week. There will be no new post this Thursday.
Our next show will be in Winnetka, Illinois, November 4-6, 2016. We always look forward to exhibiting in the greater Chicago area. We have lots of friends and clients. Put it in your calendar. It’s a lovely show!
Click here to check my website for the latest items and to look around. I will update it as often as time permits. We’re still very much in business between shows, so please don’t hesitate to email or call. I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
I’m no video professional but I just wanted to say I thought the clip looked good. What I do ask myself, however, is whether or not your interviewees held back a little. There seems to be a bit of camera shyness and some answers were deliberatly broad. Also, your written reports seem to be more detailed. Would you have gotten more out of your respondents without the lens? I encourage you to make more videos, but maybe show results and video are not the best match… You could try a tour of a show from a dealer’s point of view, with some inside information and interviews.
Thanks for the very constructive comments.
