A video I made

December 1, 2016

Here’s a video I made earlier this week for Drifter Organics. It’s an idea that was floating around in my head for a few months, but fully manifested itself when I storyboarded the entire video out Tuesday at 2am, then finally pressed “publish” yesterday.

People always ask my mom and me similar questions about our body butters:

  • Are they safe for my face?
  • How much do I use?
  • Why does my body butter feel grainy?

And since ordering online is always difficult because you can’t actually see or sample the product in person, I thought a video would provide the best visual experience for all those wondering about the texture/feel/look/application of the body butters. I used the extra footage we shot for our Kickstarter campaign to stitch together this little video.

I’m watching a lot more filmmakers and vloggers on YouTube, which is getting me inspired to make more videos. Videos take 1,000x more time and effort for me because I’m just not familiar with the medium as much as I am with photography, but creating little videos like this make me happy. That’s all.

Color Block

Few things get me more excited than bright colors and geometric shapes. I tend to prefer thick, chunky sweaters to keep me warm during the winter, but the colors in this sweater were just screamin’ my name!

Oh! And these hot pink oxfords are pretty amazing too.

She doesn't even go here

There are few things better in life than a pink wall. The color pink will forever and ever remind me of the Mean Girls quote, “On Wednesdays, we wear pink” which reminds me of the Mean Girls quote, “She doesn’t even go here.” Ugh, that movie. I’ve watched it so many times. So many good quotes. Also, I need this doormat.

How ’bout we do a little poll? What’s YOUR favorite Mean Girls quote? Mine is “You go Glen Coco!” We never even see Glen Coco, yet he’s one of the most popular characters in the movie.
