Dear Constant Reader,
I have perhaps been writing you fewer missives than I have in the past. Part of that is that I haven’t been doing as much burlesque-related stuff in the past year and a half, but also I’ve been embroiled in some new projects for my supporters on Patreon.
Long ago I made a video where I cooked chocolate pudding. I had no idea what I was doing — in terms of video making; I know how to cook chocolate pudding… I have a better idea now how to shoot and edit videos, but I’m still learning. Well, the best way to learn something is to do. About once a month I’ve been making a video for Patreon. Mostly I’ve been cooking a historic recipe that I’ve never made before and seeing how it comes out, including an on-camera tasting and reaction. However, I’ve also done some burlesque costume tutorials and craft projects. I’m also documenting the (slow) improvements and redecorating I’ve been doing in my sewing room/office.
There’s a list of all the videos on Patreon here. The list is public, but the videos are only available to Patrons.
I’m mostly filming and editing myself, although, when he’s got time, Scratch gives me some help and advice. I’m hoping to upgrade my equipment and maybe take some classes to improve my skills.
