I have been working on the kickstarter campaign and it has been a huge amount of work, fun but challenging. The video is a key step in success, and I am feeling a huge amount of pressure to have something good. The script I put together seemed pretty tight, the hardest part has been cutting it back, and squeezing it in to 3 minutes or so. Friday night and Saturday morning were spent converting the garage / workshop into the set for the shoot.
I am fortunate to have a friend and neighbor, Thank you George, who could be on the camera end of things, which was a huge help. The real shocker for me was how hard it was getting the words out once the camera went on. I have been in front of the camera before, this project is a dream come true and still I felt like my brain and tongue went to mush every time the camera was rolling. Everything is taking longer than planed, but the results are great, so I push on. I am pretty sure we have plenty of usable footage. The next step is the culling and edit. I know in my heart that this will work and the project will move forward. The experience I am gaining from this is incredible, it pushes my boundaries at every corner. The bicycle design and testing came very easy to me, the selling has been the challenge, and I am enjoying it immensely.
