Chris Pape sent me an e-mail on Friday night. The video was complete from my first on camera interview. He sent me a link to watch and was requesting my "stamp of approval" before he promoted it on his social media sites. I REALLY did not want to watch myself, so I kindly requested my husband to watch it for me. I forwarded him the link. I was actually siitting in the same room when hubby opened the video to watch it. I put in my earplugs and continued to watch replays and highlights from the Olympic games on my laptop.
Hubby says loudly, "That is great, you were wonderful and I am impressed!" I asked, "so you couldn't tell I was nervous?" He says, "No you were very impressive!" I said, "okay." I forward the link to Joanna and Lynn and ask them for their input. Hubby looks at me and says, "you need to watch that!" I sulk for a couple of minutes as I really don't want to. I know I will notice how nervous I was and proceed to pick out my silly nervous mannerisms. I will also critique myself, which means I won't say anything positive about myself.
I click on the link and watch it. When it was over I did critique myself. I wasn't happy with my projection. I am going to stop there before I create a list of things I was unhappy with. Chris did an excellent job! Two hours of video cut down to under 5 minutes. He used screenshots of MSBA's website in the video and even explained how MSBA's Red, White & Blue Pages™ helped Macho Spouse.
Thank you Chris!
