Setting Myself up for Success 

Day 5

Setting yourself up for success

Planning/shooting/editing and posting a video. .

I rarely have an entire day to myself and producing each video will take at  least a day. An hour or two to shop, at least a couple of hours for the shoot and a day or more for the editing and post production. All for a short video.

So if I don’t have an entire day to prepare and shoot, I have planned as follows:


Day one

Choose the recipe. Shop for the ingredients for my dish/meal: farmers markets, road-side stands, health food stores, Trader Joes, regular grocery stores etc. Document the planning and shopping experience. Most of the time choosing the recipe will depend on the fresh ingredients that I can find.


Day two

Prepare my workspace (kitchen)

Set up cameras, lights and begin shooting.

Prep ingredients

Prepare dish


Day 3

Edit the photos/videos

Write the accompanying blog



In the beginning I will be posting the videos on YouTube with photos and links on my blog page. Eventually I will be able to embed the videos into the blog.

Lights! Camera! Action!
