      You two do make a great team. Steve, you were always (well, at least since I know you) good with your camera presentations, but now in this case one and one makes four. I am just wondering how you filmed the bit when you were walking down the isle in the store. Did you have a camera person or did you mount the camera on the shopping cart?

      Thanks, Shama! I like the idea that we can change the laws of math. 🙂

      We just sat the phone inside the shopping cart. I think we used our coats to stabilize it as much as possible. In any case, it was quite improvised. The point is that almost all of this can always be done alone.

        So if the phone was in the shopping cart, you would have looked down, but you looked straight up as if the camera was at eye level. How did you manage to do that?

        • Steven Washer

          We were looking down. Remember, the iPhone is effectively on wide angle all the time unless you change it, so the low angle effect is minimized, but definitely still there.

        Glad you enjoyed it, Violette. Jaeny is one of the sharpest video people it’s ever been my pleasure to work with. Must be something about the air in Vancouver, eh? 🙂

      I can’t wait for the new course. It’s just in time! I’ve planning a video blog for quite sometime and your course is timely. I can’t wait to get started on the new course!

        Thanks, Jaime! We’re excited to bring it into the world. 🙂

      This is a great video, I loved it. Also I wanted to let you know I referenced this video in my blog about the anatomy of video blogging and linked back here to it. Thanks again for sharing.

      Did you guys working from a script? Or were you just winging it? Notes?

    • Steve

      No notes, no script, no luxuries like that. When you’re on location, structure is everything. 😉

      Of course, we did more than one take, which is normal. In fact, I feel a new video coming on about that. 😉
