Quick Little Video

Here's a video I made for Fiskars, on using the stamp press.....







Quick? Did I say quick? Ha (hollow laughter....) This video took me about two days to make. First of all I shot it about three times, making massive mistakes so that I then had to tear it up, get everything ready again and start over. Finally I got it, and settled down to edit it. Looked okay. But when I did the voiceover, Donald Duck had appeared from somewhere and was quacking away in the background - oops, I forgot to delete the original soundtrack, which, because I had speeded the video up (so that it wasn't like watching paint dry,) now sounded just like Donald on speed.

Mind you the original soundtrack went something like this:

Hi everyone, it's Enfys here with a quick video showing you the stamp....(!!****@@@@) ah here it is, sorry, just dropped my inkpad on my foot. Where was I .......as I was saying (cough cough splutter splutter)......and it really is the most fantastic tool  (ring ring MIKE ANSWER THE PHONE!)....and you can easily wipe it (dash, darn, and @@*****!! dropped the inkpad again), finish by adding a few sequins (Ring Ring MIKE< THERE'S SOMEONE AT THE DOOR), Thank you so much for watching...(oh ***@@@@!!!!)

Steven Speilberg, rest easy, your job is secure, no chance of a takeover by me. It does make me wonder how these professional crafters do it though. Their voices are so unhurried, they never say Umm, or ermmm......and I bet they never say ***!!@@@@ either!

  4. They delete all those things too! They just don't talk about them. Sure its more professional looking. But they don't have the chuckles and laughter we get with you. I have had a stamp press for several years. Love it. Its made 4 moves with me. And it has stood up to all the tough drops and scuffs etc I've put it thru. Don't need a Misti, I have a Fiskers stamp press! Thanks En. Hugs Jess

  6. Really cute card, and thank you for showing us the stamp press! I have sometimes wondered how easy it would be to use one, especially since I rarely ever have anything straight! I really enjoy the videos, so please keep making us some. Thank you!

  8. Fabulous video Enfys. I've used this stamp press many times, and you show how easy it is to use beautifully. It really is a great tool and actually saves a lot of time (not to mention helps to place images perfectly). Like you, I would recommend it to to any stamper.

  9. You're right ofcourse, these professional crafters all sound very cool, calm and collected, but I bet their videos would not be as much fun to watch as yours, especially if you had left un-edited :-) Great card and tutorial, Enfys. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs,
