Filming a video always seems like a good idea. Until I download it onto my computer and watch it…then it seems like a really, really bad idea.
The video below is the perfect example of this. Kyle and I wanted to do a quick video tour of our “new” home because there were just so many 1960′s gems in the house that we didn’t want to forget about. So we did it. However, we were under pressure as I was on my lunch break, we had juuuust argued about a not-so-important renovation decision that we couldn’t agree on, and it was a dark day, which equals a dark video. Not a good equation for filming a video.
Also, I know we are overly critical of ourselves (especially when we see our mugs on camera – yikes!) but I mean, can I get a hairbrush? My hair looks like I haven’t touched it in days (which is actually probably the truth). I also say “ummmm” probably 50 times, open with the cheesiest introduction, and I keep referring to my right, when I really mean my left.
Man, I did a good job of setting this video up, didn’t I? Without further ado, here’s our “before” house tour.
Did anyone spot the lovely built-in flower box near our front door? It had real soil, but fake plants. Who knew that was a luxury item in 1961?
