Hey @ChrisGilmour, Great to read your useful feedback again. Thank you so much!
Happy to hear I was able to deliver some laughs and bring out my natural humor “style” along with the intention to always have someone walk away with an actionable knowledge step.
Good points: My notes were on the left of the table in front of me – need to put them under the camera
It was recorded with the camera mic across the table.
I have the Yetti mic, tried this before and it worked but, not this time. Need to make sure the settings are correct and make sure the mic isn’t broken…. but not on film day (lesson learned!).
This really helps push me through the process, thank you Chris!October 26, 2016 at 1:57 pm #31053

Thank you Bradley!!!
I thought this challenge was silly at first, but after I was having some serious video challenges, I thought “Why not?”.
This is a super smart challenge on many levels. A great adventure 😉
It did start becoming more fun when I stopped feeling so silly (aka took my head out of the game). I like your tip, and will practice it for a break while script writing.
Really want to get to that breakthrough point and start having more fun again. Great observations and tips to help get me to that breakthrough, thank you!!January 16, 2017 at 2:28 pm #34055
I didn’t think I would be doing this challenge but after a few weeks at Creatora Heights here it is.January 16, 2017 at 3:50 pm #34066
I love this Paulo. You’ve got a booming voice too.
Love all the footage you’ve got of yourself.
Great advice too!
Your course is gonna rock. Just keep having fun and keep getting in front of that camera.
For the actual course, I think you should be out doors at epic kayaking locations (perhaps you take yourself on a 3-day kayaking adventure with a shit load of batteries and memory) with a camera crew and you film the whole thing while out on an adventure… (just saying)
I bet you could find someone to do the film-work for you, in exchange for lessons and a guided adventure.
Or break it up over time….
Just saying, out in the elements over green screen for all the tutorials moving forward.
Super stoked for your course.
great job with this.January 16, 2017 at 4:56 pm #34070
Just when I thought I had found a way around the challenge of outdoors filming. LOL. I know you are right, I will try to find a way to make it manageable.January 16, 2017 at 6:04 pm #34078
I love your energy and the wisdom you have and how playful you are at the same time!
Echoing the use of outdoor locations. Here is a video I made outdoors on my own with my dog and an iphone to inspire you:
It’s a part of my free training (before entering the ecourse I am building) and the I found it liberating to just focus on the content and the journey, the story, rather than getting teched up! All editing on Imovie too. Easy peasy? Not quite. But also not as hard as I imagined. I know shooting on the water has it’s own challenges though…
All the best to you on your creation!

What are the challenges or hang-ups you have about outdoor filming Paulo?
Make a list and let us know!January 17, 2017 at 11:17 am #34122
I love your video Paolo …January 17, 2017 at 3:56 pm #34134
Bradley: One of the challenges of filming outdoors is controlling the sound quality. One of the things I noticed about your videos is that no matter where you were the sound was consistent. I will try a lavalere mic to see if I can minimize the problem of there being almost always a plane going by. Going on a bigger west coast adventure would be doable in the summer maybe, but I don’t want to wait that long. Maybe for version 2.0.
I think most of the lesson part will be on the water videos with a voice over. But for the theme it would be nice to make it an actual trip. I’m thinking you can use a map and compass to find the next location, island or other, and each location will have an important insight. And then a lesson to integrate that insight, and exercises to practice. The trip planning and map and compass work can get more complicated as the course progresses. And unexpected events can trigger lessons like having to tow someone, self rescue etc. If I could do the lessons for at least the first module on islands near Victoria that would make things a lot easier. After a few lessons I will have a better idea of what I’m doing and it will likely make the planning a lot easier for if i do end up on a longer trip.
Still working on assimilating theme and naming.
Thanks,January 18, 2017 at 12:54 pm #34144
Hey Paulo, I totally hear ya on the sound quality. You may wanna go into Long and McQuade in Victoria. They’ve always been very helpful when I’ve rented from them before. Their prices for renting gear is very good too.
Really digging the theme idea you’re coming up with.
IF it absolutely doesn’t work to shoot outdoors, then definitely keep working on refining your green screen skills (lighting, sound, background sound, etc….) That will all help with making it feel and seem more real, which is important.
Hopefully you can sort out the outdoor shooting though.
If it’s the odd plane, it’s not a big deal. But if there are lots, then it’s less ideal.
The good thing about all the islands around here is you can paddle five minutes and find a totally different beach. It all looks so different.You should be able to get a lot of shooting done around one or two little islands and inlets.January 28, 2017 at 1:32 pm #34531
Your video was amazing Paulo! I am so glad you decided to do it! Your course looks interesting! I would love to learn to Kayak!January 28, 2017 at 3:59 pm #34533
I finally finished my super-cheesy intro! WARNING: this one has EXTRA CHEESE!!!! 😀January 29, 2017 at 7:55 am #34546
Oh my goodness Elijah, I love this. Love the character. Love the sound effects. Great voice. The graininess is fantastic!
For next iteration, I’d love to see when you say some of the things the course includes while doing your kung fu moves, that the words correlating with those course features pop up on screen in a cool way.
Great job. I wanna see more!January 30, 2017 at 5:07 pm #34569
Elijah this is great. With more of what you will get from the course this would be a great preview video.February 2, 2017 at 11:58 am #34654

Paulo- This is GREAT! I love it! So fun AND informative! I love all of your effects and your footage on the water is awesome! Just watching you I learned so much and it helped with my own fear of being trapped in a flipped kayak. Very excited for your course. I really love all you’re about!!! Awesome!
