But when they called while I was Sweden to ask if I could film a class, I was overjoyed!
WHAT???? You never heard of Craftsy? Craftsy is the best known online classroom for learning any type of craft. Sewing, quilting, knitting, art, photography, cake decorating...you name it, Craftsy has a class for it. Well...almost! Thay didn't have a class on bra-making...until now!
For the last three weeks, Erin and I have had to put other projects on the back burner in order to prepare for this time at Craftsy. Lots of late nights and weekends, but we were well prepared for the trip.
So this week I am in the Craftsy studio in Denver! The studio is in a renovated Taxi Depot so the building is all decorated in vintage funk! I love it here and the creative vibes throughout the whole place are palpable.
There are 4 of us filming this week, and each of us had this waiting when we arrived. Would you look at this! A star with my name on it!
I spent some time with Danica in hair and make-up. She is very talented and made me look fabulous!...OK, Mr. deMille...I am ready for my close-up!
Here is my set...and yes, here is my Ashley mannequin on set with me! She flew ahead so we could be together in the studio.
Here is my model, Heather. We felt that having a real model to measure on would be better than trying to measure on Ashley...sorry Ashley, you are just too slippery!
Heather is tall ( and I am not! ) so during the shoot, I had to stand on a box so I was tall enough to measure her...otherwise it just looked too weird!
Did I mention my film crew? They are the best! My producer is Karen, and my videographer is Marshall and my technical director is. Andrew. They are all so patient, plus they are making me look good on film. You gotta love people like that! Plus the guys are "devastatingly handsome" (they told me to tell you that). Professionals in every sense of the word. They are making this too easy!
One thing they did to keep me looking directly at the camera eye, was to put a picture of Val Kilmer (Young Val not today's Val) up over the camera eye. It wasn't hard to focus on him at all!
More filming tomorrow! They expect this to release later this year. I am not sure of the date, nor am I totally sure of the actual name of the class. Believe me, I will let everyone know as soon as I get that information!
Ta Ta, dahlings.....Hollywood is calling!
