Take a peek into my bowl making process!
Lately, I have been doing a lot of studying and reading about how to make good videos. One thing I noticed about the particular mistakes made in poor videos is that most of the mistakes violate one basic principle: that video is visual. It sounds obvious once stated, yet notice that when you watch a boring video, it is usually what you are seeing that bores you, more so than the dialog and other audio.
This video is a homework assignment that I assigned myself, to practice this visual principle. The goal was to demonstrate/teach my bowl making process without a single spoken word. I shall let the viewers decide my grade. ;-)
Special thanks to Todd Clippinger, with whom I have exchanged many ideas on the topic of making woodworking videos.
