3 Expert Tips For Aspiring Blind Videomakers
Have I got a treat for you today! Recently I had the pleasure of meeting one of my favorite YouTubers, Sam Seavey of The Blind Life. During my conversation with Sam, I asked him what advice would he give to an aspiring blind videomaker and guess what? Yup, he made a video—how cool is that?
Just last week I featured one of Sam’s videos about a friend of mine, Libby Thaw. In Plane Pulling for Sight, Libby was raising money for Orbis Flying Eye Hospital. If you recall, in this post, Libby had to raise $2,500 to enter the event and I’m so happy to report she did it!!! As a matter of fact, here’s a little blurb of hers that popped up on Facebook:
Just a quick post to say that the Orbis Plane Pull event was a very moving day for me! I looked smashing, as you can see, while I mingled with the crowd. I told people that I was going to pull the plane all by myself, and asked if they’d help on the off chance I couldn’t move it. Look how many people jumped in to help!Libby Thaw
Back To Tips For Blind Videomakers
One of my favorite pastimes is binge-watching YouTube videos. Each time I find a YouTuber who catches my attention I always come back to the same question: how? I mean seriously, every time I attempt to make the simplest of videos it becomes an all-day project. And to make matters worse it always feels forced and I choke.
So seeking some expert advice, I asked Sam for a few tips to improve my video making skills. This is what he sent for Bold Blind Beauty readers. Enjoy!
Thank you Sam!
