Nervous about being on-camera? Having a hard time simply being YOU when you press record?
It’s okay, you’re not alone.
I’ve worked with many people over the years as a director, to help them learn how to shine on-camera.
In today’s video, I’m going to share a sweet little real-life story that actually happened on one of my film sets.
And it’s allllll about being authentic (and the oh so sexy WHY factor).
This was such a magical moment for the woman I was working with – and me too.
(I get shivers just thinking about it.)
Check it out and then be sure leave a comment below with the fancy pants WHY for YOUR biz:
Did you watch it?
I hope that’s a yes. 🙂

I can’t wait to see what you have to say (I love passionate peeps)!
And as always…

Your Virtual Video Director
great content, as always! And a great example. Way beyond me technically.
Thanks so much Natasha! Fear not about the tech stuff. I’m a big fan of starting where you’re at, learning what you want to learn and outsourcing the rest.
It’s a balance between time and moolah, as everything can be learned if you have the time, and pretty much every part of creating a video can be outsourced if you want to spend the moolah.
The thing about learning it is to keep focused on just what you want to achieve, step by step.
But at the beginning, I’m a big fan of simply saying yes, pressing record, practicing and learning how to get comfy on-camera. That’s what your clients want to see: YOU
Incorporate tech stuff bit by bit.
You got this lady!!
I got goosebumps watching this – a sort of shivers, right ? 🙂
I love this message and it is so lovely. I might just have to play this video before I hit record the next time.
In the meantime, my WHY is helping people learn how to keep their animals feeling their best with simple DIY acupressure. So many people think acupressure is hard, or weird, or only for the experts. We show them how the basics are accessible to absolutely anyone. When I see them gasp with amazement as their animal sighs and closes their eyes in pleasure just because they touched the right spot, I know I have done what I came here to do. And video makes that possible – not just with people who I can meet in person but also people all over the globe. Such a powerful tool!
Thank you for your continued brilliance and inspiration that helps keep me at it on those days when the magic doesn’t happen immediately or easily. Your work is greatly appreciated.
Wooo Susan! Yep, goosebumps totally count!!!
Do play it before you hit record next time. Get some good ol’ fashioned permission to be yourself. 🙂
And I have to say, I love what you do. Such compassion for animals and the people who love them. Agreed, with video, your reach is global. Such exciting times we live in. Lol.
Thank you so much for your beautiful thoughts lady. Yep, everyone has those (video) days, when the magic feels blocked. You are not alone, and there is a way through.
