WEBVTT 1 00:00:01.840 --> 00:00:06.320 What is going on everyone? Welcome to another episode. Well, if you've 2 00:00:06.320 --> 00:00:09.599 been here before, another episode, if you've never been here before, the 3 00:00:09.759 --> 00:00:13.119 very first episode of creating daily. I'm your host, Billy Thorpe, and 4 00:00:13.119 --> 00:00:18.079 I'm super excited to be back in the saddle. I've been gone a little 5 00:00:18.079 --> 00:00:22.719 bit from creating daily as I've been moving and building a new studio space and 6 00:00:22.879 --> 00:00:26.359 all that kind of fun stuff, and so I'm excited about today's episode. 7 00:00:26.679 --> 00:00:30.280 Here in just a moment I'm gonna be bringing on my friend June eight from 8 00:00:30.359 --> 00:00:34.240 the home studio mastery dot com. He's a man. Wait till you see 9 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:36.920 the studio. I got a little sneak peek because he was setting up cameras 10 00:00:37.039 --> 00:00:40.640 and lights and I'm like, Oh man, I guess so much. I 11 00:00:40.679 --> 00:00:44.799 guess so much gas, I guess so much gear Acquisition Syndrome is what they 12 00:00:44.799 --> 00:00:47.719 call it. Okay, so Um, but I'm pretty excited. You know, 13 00:00:47.719 --> 00:00:51.719 hopefully my wife doesn't want hopefully my wife watches this but doesn't like get 14 00:00:51.719 --> 00:00:54.960 on to me about all the notes I'll be taking of gear that I want. 15 00:00:55.280 --> 00:01:00.399 And also we are streaming both to mine and June aid's Amazon because we're 16 00:01:00.399 --> 00:01:02.520 gonna be talking about a lot of different products, so we thought it'd be 17 00:01:02.679 --> 00:01:06.680 nice to have those available. And if you're watching on ritual motion, you're 18 00:01:06.680 --> 00:01:10.400 watching on Youtube or facebook or Linkedin or wherever, there should be a link 19 00:01:10.599 --> 00:01:14.159 fairly close to you. If not, could Amazon dot com slash live and 20 00:01:14.239 --> 00:01:17.560 you can see both of our streams on their probably, I'm pretty sure, 21 00:01:17.680 --> 00:01:19.680 I don't know. Anyway, or ask me for the link and I will 22 00:01:19.760 --> 00:01:22.920 drop in the chat. But before I jump into it, do you want 23 00:01:22.920 --> 00:01:26.319 to give a shout out to our new sponsor, ritual motion? UH, 24 00:01:26.359 --> 00:01:29.799 they're awesome company. I've been collaborating with them for a few months and we 25 00:01:29.879 --> 00:01:33.239 decided to make it more serious and they wanted to sponsor the show and I 26 00:01:33.239 --> 00:01:36.439 wanted them to sponsor the show. Um, and we're gonna be working together 27 00:01:36.480 --> 00:01:40.599 closely to help their creator community. Um. And so it's awesome to be 28 00:01:40.640 --> 00:01:44.519 partner with ritual motion. They're they're kind of like a unique position. It's 29 00:01:44.560 --> 00:01:48.519 kind of like if twitch and zoom had a baby. Um, this is 30 00:01:48.640 --> 00:01:51.319 this is what they this is what they do. Um. And they're also 31 00:01:51.480 --> 00:01:56.280 really into like immerged into like web three. So think about like the intersection 32 00:01:56.319 --> 00:01:59.480 of community, the Creator Economy and the emergence of web three, and that 33 00:01:59.640 --> 00:02:04.000 is where emotion and part of their goal is to help creators monetized, but 34 00:02:04.079 --> 00:02:09.159 then also like creators, but then also consumers monetized through decentralized tokens and or 35 00:02:09.199 --> 00:02:15.479 decentralized economy and tokenized economy. I guess I'm not really into like N F 36 00:02:15.520 --> 00:02:17.159 T S and Web threes and all that, but they are and they're dropping 37 00:02:17.199 --> 00:02:20.680 one. I won't jump over here real quick and show it to you. 38 00:02:20.840 --> 00:02:23.719 kind of cool. It's black bots N F T so if you're into N 39 00:02:23.759 --> 00:02:27.520 F T S, go check that out. Black BOTS UH WITH A Z 40 00:02:28.159 --> 00:02:31.840 B O B L O C K B O t z dot io. Go 41 00:02:31.919 --> 00:02:35.599 check that out. I think it's dropping. They're starting to minke those in 42 00:02:35.639 --> 00:02:38.120 a couple of days. So if you're if you're into that, go check 43 00:02:38.159 --> 00:02:40.280 it out. I think I'm getting one. I think I'm getting one, 44 00:02:40.360 --> 00:02:44.360 obviously, since someone part of their community. There's only gonna be five thousand 45 00:02:44.400 --> 00:02:46.919 of them, so go over there and get one and you can go check 46 00:02:46.919 --> 00:02:52.280 it out.

Yeah, man, it is 59 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:43.199 incredible what you've built and I'm always looking to to you and some other creators 60 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:45.000 to go okay, what do they guy?

But it's really cool 62 00:03:47.039 --> 00:03:51.919 to see the setup that you have, so I'm really excited to jump into 63 00:03:51.960 --> 00:03:54.039 that and for people who are watching us on Amazon, they're gonna get a 64 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:58.199 chance to check out your caresel, which once again, if you're my community 65 00:03:58.199 --> 00:04:00.520 and you're on one of my personal pages, go check out the show notes 66 00:04:00.560 --> 00:04:02.759 and go to June eights. And I also have a care sell up as 67 00:04:02.759 --> 00:04:06.599 well in case I talked about some products that I'll be using. Um. 68 00:04:06.639 --> 00:04:11.520 But yeah, man, excited to have you on and excited to talk about 69 00:04:12.080 --> 00:04:15.599 you know, how do you build this home studio? But my first question 70 00:04:15.599 --> 00:04:18.040 for you really, and we'll just jump right in, is like why should 71 00:04:18.120 --> 00:04:21.240 I care about, you know, building any kind of studio? I can't 72 00:04:21.279 --> 00:04:25.680 just turn on my Webcam, turn on my lamp and uh and go from 73 00:04:25.720 --> 00:04:29.680 there. Why should I be, you know, concerned about it? Well, 74 00:04:30.319 --> 00:04:33.560 I love that question because yes, you can turn the camera on and 75 00:04:33.680 --> 00:04:39.480 turn your lamp on, have some lighting and start talking, but a lot 76 00:04:39.519 --> 00:04:45.720 of the times we are not confident enough and how we show up on camera. 77 00:04:46.319 --> 00:04:49.360 So building a studio is like Putt putting on your best slacks, best 78 00:04:49.360 --> 00:04:54.360 suit on when you show up at the party. That's what's setting up studio 79 00:04:55.000 --> 00:04:59.680 literally means, because you care about what you look like, you care about 80 00:04:59.800 --> 00:05:03.959 what you delivered, the messaging. So setting up your studio literally means that 81 00:05:04.199 --> 00:05:11.240 you're spending it, spending some time spending some dough on what you look like 82 00:05:12.279 --> 00:05:16.800 on camera. So video quality. It also builds up your confidence. Did 83 00:05:16.800 --> 00:05:25.720 you know in there were more plastic surgeries than in the past ten years? 84 00:05:26.839 --> 00:05:30.839 What? That's crazy. More surgeries in the last than the last ten years. 85 00:05:32.600 --> 00:05:39.720 Everybody's looking at themselves in zoom like Oh, okay, that makes sense. 86 00:05:39.800 --> 00:05:42.079 Yet you know what, and I think there was a part of like 87 00:05:42.560 --> 00:05:46.040 I just lost since November like sixty pounds and, if I have to be 88 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:48.079 roll honest, that was a part of it, man, that was part 89 00:05:48.120 --> 00:05:50.639 of it. was like steering at myself in a camera all day or my 90 00:05:50.759 --> 00:05:54.279 you know, my monitor, and and I was going, man, this 91 00:05:54.319 --> 00:05:57.160 is supposed to be a confidence monitor, but I'm not confident at all, 92 00:05:57.800 --> 00:06:00.279 Um. So I love the answer to that. You know, I I'm 93 00:06:00.439 --> 00:06:02.120 very similar in that situation where I'm like man, I just want my studio 94 00:06:02.199 --> 00:06:04.879 look great. It's kind of part of the reason why I'm using the green 95 00:06:04.920 --> 00:06:10.319 screen right now is I just didn't have the right background. I'm just still 96 00:06:10.319 --> 00:06:13.519 trying to like think through it. And then I was, you know, 97 00:06:13.600 --> 00:06:15.199 watching another podcast with the green screen. I'm like, you know what, 98 00:06:15.279 --> 00:06:18.079 that's kind of quirky and cool. And you know a little bit of my 99 00:06:18.199 --> 00:06:21.959 style as well, just trying to be funny and and add a little levity 100 00:06:23.000 --> 00:06:26.360 to the conversation. Um, I mean, so when you when we're talking 101 00:06:26.360 --> 00:06:29.240 about home studios, because when I have some creators watching over here, you 102 00:06:29.279 --> 00:06:32.959 know, either here on ritual motion or Amazon, when they're watching this and 103 00:06:32.959 --> 00:06:35.720 they're going, man, I mean look at June's. First of all, 104 00:06:35.759 --> 00:06:40.240 we get a studio. It's awesome, like it just looks amazing. He's 105 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:44.399 got all the amazing things there, the lights, the cameras, the action. 106 00:06:45.279 --> 00:06:47.959 So when you walked into that room for the first time, or when 107 00:06:47.959 --> 00:06:51.560 you walk into a room or you see pictures or videos of your clients, 108 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:56.680 what's kind of like the first thing that you're really trying like? What's the 109 00:06:56.720 --> 00:06:59.600 first what's step one? Are you trying to identify? When you do that? 110 00:06:59.759 --> 00:07:01.519 Is it lighting? Audio sound like? What does that look like? 111 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:05.600 The first thing that we do is we can figure out the lighting situation, 112 00:07:05.680 --> 00:07:11.639 because some rooms might have no windows and they're like, all right, it's 113 00:07:11.639 --> 00:07:15.319 a blank slate and some rooms might have windows, maybe two sets of windows, 114 00:07:15.319 --> 00:07:18.560 maybe three sets and windows on three walls. So you gotta take that 115 00:07:18.639 --> 00:07:24.639 into account. Before you go and jump into and figuring out. Okay, 116 00:07:24.680 --> 00:07:28.839 where's the camera gonna go? You don't want bright lights looking at the camera, 117 00:07:28.920 --> 00:07:30.759 just like we just like how we don't like looking to the sun. 118 00:07:31.759 --> 00:07:35.959 The cameras don't like looking into the sun either. So I gotta figure out 119 00:07:35.959 --> 00:07:40.720 what the windows are, because windows are free lights for us. If you 120 00:07:40.800 --> 00:07:48.680 use windows and you set up a a plain sheet of white sheet, it's 121 00:07:48.720 --> 00:07:54.439 it basically brings in the softest light that you can get for free. Right. 122 00:07:54.480 --> 00:07:57.600 So the first thing that we do to figure out the lighting situation. 123 00:07:58.199 --> 00:08:05.240 Number two is audio, because without people being able to see you, now 124 00:08:05.279 --> 00:08:07.439 that they can see you because you're taking care of the lighting, well, 125 00:08:07.439 --> 00:08:13.040 I guess what. Now they want to be able to hear you. Okay, 126 00:08:13.639 --> 00:08:18.360 I'm talking and you can't hear me, people will immediately start commenting like 127 00:08:18.879 --> 00:08:24.399 we can't hear you, we can't turn the microphone on, you're on mute, 128 00:08:24.560 --> 00:08:31.439 right. So microphone and audio is the second step that I walk them 129 00:08:31.439 --> 00:08:35.559 through. Once you have lighting and and they can hear you, they can 130 00:08:35.559 --> 00:08:39.120 see you, we'll good to go. You can deliver your message, people 131 00:08:39.159 --> 00:08:43.559 can hear you, people can take your message in. Okay, so, 132 00:08:43.559 --> 00:08:48.799 so we're looking at lighting first and then and then we're looking at audio. 133 00:08:48.879 --> 00:08:50.320 So let's talk about a little bit about lighting, because man, you got 134 00:08:50.559 --> 00:08:54.159 I mean you're lighting is amazing and I love it's you know, it's like 135 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:58.440 that to me. It looks very cinematic and I know, I know just 136 00:08:58.480 --> 00:09:01.320 from being, you know, someone who's from cameras, that has some to 137 00:09:01.320 --> 00:09:03.759 do with the Lens. But I've been told, and I've kind of seen 138 00:09:03.799 --> 00:09:09.279 this personally here in my studio, it's not really about the you can have 139 00:09:09.320 --> 00:09:11.879 the greatest camera and the greatest Lens, but if you don't have a really 140 00:09:11.879 --> 00:09:15.080 good lighting it's just not going to do it justice. So maybe maybe walk 141 00:09:15.159 --> 00:09:18.519 us through and you know, you get your Amazon crowd over there fired up 142 00:09:18.519 --> 00:09:20.200 as well. So maybe let's walk through some of your lighting set up and 143 00:09:20.480 --> 00:09:24.320 kind of walk me through that. Absolutely. So, if I were to 144 00:09:24.440 --> 00:09:28.879 go just like you mentioned earlier, you can have the best camera in the 145 00:09:28.919 --> 00:09:33.799 world and if you don't have good lighting, well you're just gonna look like 146 00:09:33.440 --> 00:09:39.240 normal Joe Shmo. So this is my setup with that, with just the 147 00:09:39.440 --> 00:09:43.879 overhead lights when I'm working, when I'm you know, and it still looks 148 00:09:43.000 --> 00:09:48.320 like better than most zoom calls I've seen the last couple of years. So 149 00:09:50.320 --> 00:09:52.840 right. So what what I started with this room is I first turn off 150 00:09:52.879 --> 00:09:56.960 all the lights and turned the camera and like okay, what is the camera 151 00:09:56.039 --> 00:10:00.200 seat? Well, the first thing we need is we need to make that 152 00:10:00.279 --> 00:10:03.960 we're lighting the talent. So I have the main light up here, to 153 00:10:03.120 --> 00:10:09.039 the flat panel led light, and then I'm like, okay, we need 154 00:10:09.200 --> 00:10:11.200 we need a little more light. This is kind of dark, you know. 155 00:10:11.320 --> 00:10:16.440 So then I added another light on the side, which basically lights up 156 00:10:16.559 --> 00:10:18.240 a little bit of my background, more of me. You know, you 157 00:10:18.480 --> 00:10:22.879 get that dynamic dynamics and whatnot. And then over time I was like, 158 00:10:22.919 --> 00:10:26.679 okay, let me add some lights on my shelf. So I added some 159 00:10:26.759 --> 00:10:30.639 lights on my shelf. I'm like, okay, this looks so cool. 160 00:10:31.320 --> 00:10:35.440 And then I was still getting lost in the background because you could see my 161 00:10:35.519 --> 00:10:39.200 hair is blindinging in, blending into the background. So then I added some 162 00:10:39.279 --> 00:10:46.120 hair light. Now this added not only you're lighting to my hair, but 163 00:10:46.200 --> 00:10:48.000 also my shoulders some. Now this is the three point lighting that I talked 164 00:10:48.039 --> 00:10:52.799 about. Yeah, the main light, you have got hair light and if 165 00:10:52.840 --> 00:10:56.679 you've got a key light, just to light up the whole set, whole 166 00:10:56.720 --> 00:11:00.399 of your talent. And then the last thing that I added was a flood 167 00:11:00.679 --> 00:11:05.320 light. This flood light is meant for outdoors, lighting up your home, 168 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:07.600 and I was like Hey, this is pretty cheap and it I can just 169 00:11:07.759 --> 00:11:13.919 light up my bookshelf just using this cheap little device. And that's basically I 170 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:18.759 just had five different lights set up in my studio. Yeah, man, 171 00:11:18.799 --> 00:11:20.879 I love it. So, so you're using and I'm doing similar. I'm 172 00:11:20.919 --> 00:11:24.080 doing a key light. Um, I have a little bit of a fill 173 00:11:24.159 --> 00:11:28.519 light, which sometimes I just use this big soft box like to get this 174 00:11:28.559 --> 00:11:33.279 real soft feel. I mean it's it's probably maybe too big, I don't 175 00:11:33.279 --> 00:11:35.480 even know. Um, and I'm kind of doing it from a forty five 176 00:11:35.559 --> 00:11:39.000 degrees and it's hot and I'm doing mine pretty high. I'm doing it, 177 00:11:39.039 --> 00:11:41.639 you know, I've seen some people put them right behind their desk, but 178 00:11:41.639 --> 00:11:46.120 I'm doing mine pretty high. What's the position? I would say the higher 179 00:11:46.159 --> 00:11:50.480 you can go the better, mainly because you want you want the lights that 180 00:11:50.559 --> 00:11:56.960 you're setting up to mimic daylight, to mimic the sun, because when you're 181 00:11:56.000 --> 00:12:01.399 outside the sun is not coming directly in. Fron you try to avoid that. 182 00:12:01.480 --> 00:12:05.519 It's coming way up above and if it's cloudy out there, guess what, 183 00:12:05.600 --> 00:12:09.039 it's going to be even cleaner when that's happening. Okay, yeah, 184 00:12:09.039 --> 00:12:11.879 I mean that's what that's what I can and I kind of learned lighting from 185 00:12:11.960 --> 00:12:16.679 a friend of mine who's a photographer, and that's where I really, you 186 00:12:16.720 --> 00:12:20.840 know, started to learn some of the stuff out as far as lighting goes. 187 00:12:20.879 --> 00:12:22.639 So so you get your you get your key lie, you got a 188 00:12:22.639 --> 00:12:26.080 little bit of a fill light. Now is it the same size as your 189 00:12:26.159 --> 00:12:28.879 key line? Are you're doing the same brightness and and all that on the 190 00:12:28.919 --> 00:12:35.440 same two different I have two different lights. The light in front of me 191 00:12:35.600 --> 00:12:41.200 is a square, probably twelve inch by twelve inch um on one FT by 192 00:12:41.240 --> 00:12:46.759 one FT panel. So initially it was just a panel and then it comes 193 00:12:46.799 --> 00:12:52.120 with this plastic diffuser, which you can only do so, which only goes 194 00:12:52.159 --> 00:12:56.120 so far. So then I added another level of diffusion as well as a 195 00:12:56.200 --> 00:13:00.759 grit. So if I switched to my rear view, anrest. So here's 196 00:13:00.799 --> 00:13:07.440 my front light. So I can't tell the temperature or how hot, how 197 00:13:07.480 --> 00:13:09.559 hot, it is, but it's it's light enough to light me up. 198 00:13:11.360 --> 00:13:15.960 Then on this side is actually a much bigger box, which is probably at 199 00:13:16.639 --> 00:13:20.559 percent. So it's not even fully blown, it is a much bigger light. 200 00:13:20.600 --> 00:13:24.519 It's further away. So creating that softness as if, you know, 201 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:30.600 I'm sitting outside or I'm sitting with some really nice soft lights. Yeah, 202 00:13:30.840 --> 00:13:33.840 man, I love that. I love that. Um, there's and I 203 00:13:33.840 --> 00:13:37.120 guess that's the thing, man, because I've used some of those panel lights 204 00:13:37.159 --> 00:13:39.960 too and it is like, Oh, these are too harsh, and so 205 00:13:39.120 --> 00:13:43.080 you kind of when you and I don't even know if I knew the difference 206 00:13:43.120 --> 00:13:45.840 until I purchased the difference and I'm like, Oh, wow, okay, 207 00:13:45.879 --> 00:13:48.320 this is like way softer. It looks more, you know, cinematic, 208 00:13:48.360 --> 00:13:52.200 and if I didn't have a green screen behind me, I would use way 209 00:13:52.279 --> 00:13:54.960 less light because I really do love that, you know, more cinematic approach, 210 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:58.559 cinematic look, Um, so so and now that you've kind of set 211 00:13:58.600 --> 00:14:01.320 your lighting, so I love it. So step one light the subject in 212 00:14:01.320 --> 00:14:05.120 the dark room, which I need to I need to actually reado. I 213 00:14:05.200 --> 00:14:07.519 just moved to a new studio space. I need to Redo that. I'M 214 00:14:07.519 --> 00:14:13.080 gonna I'm gonna think about that. I love going from scratch because like okay, 215 00:14:13.120 --> 00:14:15.759 I can do everything I want. So the next to Yeo that I'm 216 00:14:15.759 --> 00:14:18.360 working on is my workshop, because I like, I like to build, 217 00:14:18.480 --> 00:14:22.879 you know, I like to work on wood projects and I love to work 218 00:14:22.919 --> 00:14:26.080 on different things. So that's my next project that I'm working on, and 219 00:14:26.360 --> 00:14:33.080 lighting was the first thing that I so I've got at least Um sixteen lights 220 00:14:33.120 --> 00:14:37.399 in there, all overhead lights. So basically the entire ceiling is lit up 221 00:14:37.039 --> 00:14:43.000 so that everything is evenly lit and it's it's not a pretty soft light as 222 00:14:43.039 --> 00:14:46.440 well. Now, are you using that that space to like shoot like product 223 00:14:46.519 --> 00:14:50.360 videos and that type of stuff, or what do you how are you nizing 224 00:14:50.720 --> 00:14:54.519 in the combination, it's gonna be product videos. Um Time laps of me 225 00:14:54.600 --> 00:14:58.240 and my kids building some legos sets. So you can see I've got a 226 00:14:58.279 --> 00:15:05.399 couple of legos that's sitting behind me, just waiting on the studio for that 227 00:15:05.480 --> 00:15:09.360 space to be, you know, ready before we start building these things. 228 00:15:09.799 --> 00:15:11.919 Got You. That's awesome, man. So we talked a little bit about 229 00:15:13.000 --> 00:15:15.720 lighting and then the next thing, and sorry, I'm kind of doing this 230 00:15:15.840 --> 00:15:18.679 like maybe it's a little bit boring, but I was like man, people, 231 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:20.799 you know, sometimes it's like just tell me what I need to do, 232 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:24.320 tell me what I need to know. So it's more of like a 233 00:15:24.360 --> 00:15:28.440 little step by step twotorial here. Um. But the next thing, next 234 00:15:28.480 --> 00:15:31.000 thing you talked about was like audio, and I kind of you know, 235 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:35.399 my mentality around this is the same thing. Like I can have the world's 236 00:15:35.440 --> 00:15:39.720 greatest microphone or whatever. The podcast. You know, you have the seven 237 00:15:39.759 --> 00:15:43.519 B right here, but if I don't have a really good space, it's 238 00:15:43.559 --> 00:15:46.399 real echo. It doesn't really matter what kind of microphone. So how are 239 00:15:46.440 --> 00:15:50.240 you sound? How you sound treating or sound proofing your space, like, 240 00:15:50.240 --> 00:15:54.159 what do you what's the first step of getting good audio, I guess besides 241 00:15:54.159 --> 00:16:00.879 the microphone. So once you have a good microphone, I know condenser mics 242 00:16:00.919 --> 00:16:06.559 are really popular, but dynamic microphones do a really good job, especially if 243 00:16:06.559 --> 00:16:10.320 you might have noise around you. So the second thing that I do is 244 00:16:10.519 --> 00:16:14.799 you've got the good microphone that you can't really see, Um, what I've 245 00:16:14.799 --> 00:16:18.039 got on my my walls over here, but if I switched to lights, 246 00:16:18.080 --> 00:16:22.720 I have panels in front of me, I have panels above me. That 247 00:16:22.799 --> 00:16:29.519 absorbs the sound because I'm talking in this direction. And then hold on me. 248 00:16:30.399 --> 00:16:33.000 Necessarily so you can see the back of me. Um over here. 249 00:16:33.519 --> 00:16:38.320 I've got several things on this wall. Now, I it'Ds a flat wall. 250 00:16:38.919 --> 00:16:44.399 So having several things on the wall also breaks down the sound. It 251 00:16:44.480 --> 00:16:48.879 also breaks down the pattern of how the sound is going to bounce back. 252 00:16:48.879 --> 00:16:52.919 Now there might be a little bit of Echo in my room, but because 253 00:16:52.960 --> 00:16:59.840 I've got carpeting, I've got ceiling and I've got my walls covered, it's 254 00:16:59.879 --> 00:17:04.240 a lot better than it was when I first moved into the space. Yeah, 255 00:17:04.240 --> 00:17:08.519 man, I just moved into a new space as well and it was 256 00:17:10.640 --> 00:17:12.480 well, I guess. Yeah, so I moved in. It's like a 257 00:17:12.559 --> 00:17:18.559 thirteen by fourteen room. It has like fifteen foot high ceilings and dude INSENS 258 00:17:18.799 --> 00:17:21.680 and and the it's a warehouse style, so it goes right up to the 259 00:17:21.720 --> 00:17:26.799 metal roof. Like there's no insulation or dropped down ceiling. And so when 260 00:17:26.839 --> 00:17:30.680 I walked into the room, my approach to to build, you know, 261 00:17:30.720 --> 00:17:33.519 building a few studios and nothing, you know, nothing with a giant budget. 262 00:17:33.599 --> 00:17:37.799 So it wasn't like I was hiring the pros to come in, but 263 00:17:37.880 --> 00:17:40.960 I came in and like started talking and I can hear myself echoing I'm like, 264 00:17:41.000 --> 00:17:44.000 and you might be able to hear it still a little bit Um. 265 00:17:44.079 --> 00:17:48.440 And that's when I went and got some big room dividers and actually climbed up 266 00:17:48.440 --> 00:17:52.400 in the ceiling in and basically have them kind of made a little little makeshift 267 00:17:52.480 --> 00:17:56.440 dropped down ceiling with these giant pieces of fabric and it's really been, you 268 00:17:56.480 --> 00:18:00.559 know, like a game changer. And then I hung some, you know, 269 00:18:00.680 --> 00:18:03.480 giants, sound I'll call them sound blankets, but they're really just like 270 00:18:03.759 --> 00:18:08.920 quilts from Walmart or whatever. Right. Yeah, yeah, so I think 271 00:18:08.920 --> 00:18:12.720 that's another thing too. And then like any kind of Um, you know, 272 00:18:12.880 --> 00:18:15.839 underneath the door, like you know a lot of sound coming from the 273 00:18:15.880 --> 00:18:19.079 door, especially if you have young kids like we do. Um, maybe 274 00:18:19.119 --> 00:18:22.400 like a little weather strip or stripping on the door, something like that as 275 00:18:22.440 --> 00:18:25.799 well. Do you do any of that kind of stuff? Is like that? 276 00:18:26.640 --> 00:18:29.359 I have some of that as well. Yes, so, blocking under 277 00:18:29.440 --> 00:18:33.519 the door, and then sometimes I'll even put a blanket in front of the 278 00:18:33.559 --> 00:18:40.680 door inside so when you enter you see a blanket like what's going so kind 279 00:18:40.680 --> 00:18:44.839 of blocked the sound before it, you know, gets to that microphone. 280 00:18:45.039 --> 00:18:47.200 Yeah, I mean, you know what I think it's so funny. I 281 00:18:47.359 --> 00:18:49.039 was watching, Um, you know, I don't get off topic a little 282 00:18:49.039 --> 00:18:53.160 bit here, but one of my favorite shows is an MTV show called catfish, 283 00:18:53.960 --> 00:18:59.240 and so I watched this show and I noticed like the little quirky things 284 00:18:59.279 --> 00:19:00.440 that we do, because, you know, sometimes if I look at your 285 00:19:00.559 --> 00:19:03.440 if I look at your full production here, I'm going wow, man, 286 00:19:03.480 --> 00:19:07.599 this guy is this thing is so legit, like he's got everything together and 287 00:19:07.640 --> 00:19:11.559 everything is in perfect place and it just looks so, you know, professional. 288 00:19:12.200 --> 00:19:15.920 And then I'm watching this MTV show and I noticed they got a laptop 289 00:19:17.119 --> 00:19:19.960 up on some pillows, they got stuff the duct taped to the to the 290 00:19:21.000 --> 00:19:23.000 glass on the car and all this kind of stuff. And so I think 291 00:19:23.039 --> 00:19:26.799 for a lot of people who are watching the stream right now, are watching 292 00:19:26.839 --> 00:19:30.039 the replay later, it's not really about going out and just spending, you 293 00:19:30.079 --> 00:19:33.960 know, because you've been building the studio for two years almost so and I've 294 00:19:33.960 --> 00:19:37.279 seen kind of the progression, because I followed you, of different, you 295 00:19:37.319 --> 00:19:41.799 know, different elements, and so Um, maybe let's read, you know, 296 00:19:41.880 --> 00:19:44.759 kind of readwind a little bit, because I don't want people to look 297 00:19:44.799 --> 00:19:47.799 at your setup and go my Gosh, man, I gotta go Max out 298 00:19:47.839 --> 00:19:49.839 my credit card, Um, but talk to me about that when you first 299 00:19:49.839 --> 00:19:52.720 started building it, because you know, the blankets, the you know, 300 00:19:52.839 --> 00:19:56.480 tacking stuff on the wall, all this kind of stuff matters. So, 301 00:19:56.880 --> 00:19:57.839 uh, you know, for people watching, I don't want them to think 302 00:19:57.880 --> 00:20:03.559 like I can't do this because I gotta go spend ten grand. Well, 303 00:20:03.640 --> 00:20:08.039 I think of it as Um, a investment in a place that would where 304 00:20:08.079 --> 00:20:11.680 you're going to be spending con where you're going to be spending a lot of 305 00:20:11.720 --> 00:20:18.480 time creating content for Your Business, for Your Entrepreneurship as an entrepreneur. It 306 00:20:18.599 --> 00:20:22.839 is an investment in the business, right. So it's tax rat it's tax 307 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:27.759 rat football. But before I even got started, I just had a simple 308 00:20:27.799 --> 00:20:33.759 setup in my room where I could come in and just work on those stuff 309 00:20:33.799 --> 00:20:37.799 that I'm working on, with covid hitting in and we're going remote. I 310 00:20:37.839 --> 00:20:41.279 was like, okay, something's got to give. I need to set up 311 00:20:41.279 --> 00:20:45.799 the space so then I can present and I can be in front of the 312 00:20:45.839 --> 00:20:51.880 camera. And it didn't really hit me till I started watching Pat Flynn on 313 00:20:51.920 --> 00:20:56.839 youtube creating these live streams every single day, right, and he shared an 314 00:20:56.960 --> 00:21:00.839 article after a couple of weeks like hey, hey guys, this is what 315 00:21:00.880 --> 00:21:03.480 I'm using in my studio. I'm like, okay, let me take a 316 00:21:03.480 --> 00:21:07.519 look and this blog and as I'm reading this blog post I see that I've 317 00:21:07.559 --> 00:21:12.400 got eight of the gear, mainly because I come from a film background. 318 00:21:12.599 --> 00:21:18.720 I've been doing film and short films and documentaries for the past decade. So 319 00:21:18.880 --> 00:21:22.599 I've had the gear to put together. Now did I spend more money? 320 00:21:22.640 --> 00:21:27.519 Of course, because putting stuff together, initially I just had my desk in 321 00:21:27.559 --> 00:21:34.240 the middle and I had tripods on either side holding these cameras and there was 322 00:21:34.319 --> 00:21:38.319 not a lot of walking space. So over time I upgraded. I'll learned 323 00:21:38.359 --> 00:21:44.559 from other people like these allar video shooter, Pat Flynn himself. There's a 324 00:21:45.440 --> 00:21:49.000 live streaming pros. There's a ton of people in the space that are teaching 325 00:21:49.039 --> 00:21:52.279 this stuff and I was like hey, this is pretty cool. So I 326 00:21:52.319 --> 00:21:59.640 started taking that knowledge and modifying based on what I already knew and started putting 327 00:21:59.680 --> 00:22:03.960 my up together. And as I got deeper and deeper into it, I 328 00:22:04.039 --> 00:22:07.839 was like, Oh, I can add this thing. But to start off, 329 00:22:07.920 --> 00:22:11.799 it all comes down to being confident in front of the camera and the 330 00:22:11.839 --> 00:22:18.839 only way to get confident or build that confidence up is to have conversations like 331 00:22:18.920 --> 00:22:26.680 this one. And so in from that one year I spent at least recorded 332 00:22:26.680 --> 00:22:30.200 about a hundred episodes from my podcast hacks and hobbies, and that's where this 333 00:22:30.279 --> 00:22:34.799 all started from. Right. So I have about we're in season four right 334 00:22:34.799 --> 00:22:40.640 now and I've had a ton of conversation. But before I started I had 335 00:22:40.680 --> 00:22:42.240 no idea how to tell a story. I had no idea what I would 336 00:22:42.240 --> 00:22:45.400 talk about. Right I'm like, Oh, I know this and this and 337 00:22:45.440 --> 00:22:49.240 this, but the more I listened to other people tell stories, the better 338 00:22:49.519 --> 00:22:55.920 I got in telling my own story and weaving into, uh, these stories 339 00:22:56.200 --> 00:22:59.880 my personal life, my experience and, you know, bringing all of that 340 00:23:00.039 --> 00:23:03.799 stuff together. So it's been it's been a journey for sure, and it's 341 00:23:03.799 --> 00:23:08.240 a it's an ongoing journey. There's there's things getting at it in this studio 342 00:23:08.960 --> 00:23:12.519 all the time. Things taken out all the time. Right. Um, 343 00:23:12.559 --> 00:23:17.720 I had this second camera which is kind of froze on this screen right now. 344 00:23:18.200 --> 00:23:21.720 It's it's my phone right now. Usually I would have a diesel lot 345 00:23:21.839 --> 00:23:26.640 camera. I just sold that two days ago because I want to replace that. 346 00:23:26.799 --> 00:23:32.240 Right. So things are coming into, things are going out because it's 347 00:23:32.279 --> 00:23:36.359 an evolution, just like we change. We go from middle school to high 348 00:23:36.400 --> 00:23:41.319 school to College. You can't stay in college for a long period of time 349 00:23:42.799 --> 00:23:48.279 without seeing change, because then it's like okay, it's we're not going anywhere. 350 00:23:48.640 --> 00:23:52.240 Yeah, well, yeah, man. I think that's you know, 351 00:23:52.240 --> 00:23:53.680 and I think that's important for people to understand. Like what you said, 352 00:23:53.680 --> 00:23:59.160 and I'll just double down on it, is that your studio space and and 353 00:23:59.240 --> 00:24:03.119 probably even your production like I know, like creating daily is a live streaming 354 00:24:03.119 --> 00:24:06.799 of podcast. It started one place and now it's changed a whole lot. 355 00:24:06.839 --> 00:24:10.400 I mean it's changed dramatically since I started it just a few months ago. 356 00:24:10.480 --> 00:24:14.240 So it's kind of you know, it's like it's like going pretty quickly and 357 00:24:14.240 --> 00:24:18.079 it can't be afraid of that change. You know. It's Um similar to 358 00:24:18.079 --> 00:24:22.240 to my setup. Man, I was running cannon dslr Cameras, the U 359 00:24:22.440 --> 00:24:25.720 S R P and, you know, a thirty five millimeter macro Lens, 360 00:24:25.759 --> 00:24:29.039 and it was pretty cool and it looked all great and cinematic, but it 361 00:24:29.079 --> 00:24:33.559 wouldn't do it wouldn't do this, it wouldn't like auto focus on a product, 362 00:24:33.640 --> 00:24:36.599 and so I'm like, Oh, I want to focus on yeah, 363 00:24:36.839 --> 00:24:40.519 yeah, like I want to focus on Amazon live, and I'm seeing all 364 00:24:40.519 --> 00:24:44.440 these Sony people just like ripping these Sony's and they're like doing all this fun 365 00:24:44.480 --> 00:24:47.079 stuff. I'm like, Oh man, you know, I gotta fix this, 366 00:24:47.640 --> 00:24:49.160 and so I did that. I mean, let's jump into your camera 367 00:24:49.240 --> 00:24:52.160 set up now. I know you just told me you sold one, but 368 00:24:52.200 --> 00:24:56.400 what are you using? Oh, I talked trash about Canada. Here it 369 00:24:56.480 --> 00:25:03.640 is. I know it's a slow focus, because it's it's you know, 370 00:25:03.680 --> 00:25:06.880 it's a macro lens and that's that's what I'm using, a music and us 371 00:25:06.960 --> 00:25:11.319 are with a thirty five fl and eight, and that's why my background is 372 00:25:11.359 --> 00:25:17.680 buttery smooth. But it's also it's it's it's also a nice large sensor. 373 00:25:18.000 --> 00:25:21.440 You know, if I had a faster lens then it might switch quicker, 374 00:25:21.480 --> 00:25:29.039 but that's fine. I'm here to teach Um and for product photography. I 375 00:25:29.119 --> 00:25:34.279 usually have a camera hanging up pointing down. Usually, Um, it's hooked 376 00:25:34.359 --> 00:25:37.240 up, but it's not. It's on. It's not in today because, 377 00:25:37.400 --> 00:25:41.240 you know, I got rid of a couple of gear and going to be 378 00:25:41.359 --> 00:25:44.960 bringing in additional gear to then, you know, wire through all of this 379 00:25:45.079 --> 00:25:49.359 equipment. But I've been I've been using cannon gear for quite some time, 380 00:25:51.240 --> 00:25:56.559 but there was a time where I was I was using Sony cameras mostly the 381 00:25:56.559 --> 00:26:03.279 the the point you shoot cameras from way back, twenty years ago, okay, 382 00:26:03.400 --> 00:26:08.079 got and at some at some point I switched over Um when I went 383 00:26:08.119 --> 00:26:14.440 to the dslar model, and I know that Sony has had the mirroralists and 384 00:26:14.480 --> 00:26:17.039 I was like, Oh, when are you going to get mirroralists cameras, 385 00:26:17.480 --> 00:26:21.599 you know, cannon? And finally when they hit, when they you know, 386 00:26:21.720 --> 00:26:26.519 got they got the USR. I would like jumping on it. So 387 00:26:26.559 --> 00:26:32.240 now I have two e s RS in my studio. I'm getting a set, 388 00:26:32.599 --> 00:26:38.960 getting a third one um next week and then another one for product photography 389 00:26:40.599 --> 00:26:44.960 to motor on top. I just like to keep it in the same family. 390 00:26:45.039 --> 00:26:48.799 Just makes it easier for me to switch lenses. Now now I could, 391 00:26:48.880 --> 00:26:52.000 I can switch to a new family, but over time, you know, 392 00:26:52.000 --> 00:26:56.200 it's all it's all about what are you comfortable with and you know, 393 00:26:56.319 --> 00:27:00.960 go with that. Yeah, man, I agree, and that's what I 394 00:27:00.000 --> 00:27:04.519 was on. I was doing cannon and once again I was consulting with a 395 00:27:04.799 --> 00:27:10.079 my photographer friend, and so he shoots with an R and R Five, 396 00:27:10.200 --> 00:27:11.799 R six, I don't know. He's got all kinds of stuff and Um, 397 00:27:12.039 --> 00:27:17.160 and so I got the RP and got all these lenses and and man, 398 00:27:17.200 --> 00:27:18.920 it was awesome. And then I literally, just a couple of weeks 399 00:27:18.920 --> 00:27:22.960 ago, sold off, you know, the camera a couple of lenses and 400 00:27:23.000 --> 00:27:26.359 replaced them. Actually was just point and shoot cameras, which is the zv 401 00:27:26.559 --> 00:27:30.799 one, and I was trying to get the z the ZV Eatin, but 402 00:27:30.839 --> 00:27:32.839 they were all out of stock everywhere. I'm like, I'm not wait, 403 00:27:32.880 --> 00:27:34.119 I can't wait, I can't wait, I need these, you know. 404 00:27:34.480 --> 00:27:37.440 Um, so that's when I got. Now I get a couple of those, 405 00:27:37.480 --> 00:27:41.720 I'll probably add the the eaton to the mix because I do like the 406 00:27:41.759 --> 00:27:45.920 ability to switch camera lenses and I do like a I wish that's still in 407 00:27:45.119 --> 00:27:48.160 what is I think that's still like a crop Sensor Lens. So so this 408 00:27:48.160 --> 00:27:52.640 one's even. This one's really small and I got it fully wide open at 409 00:27:52.640 --> 00:27:56.759 one point. Eight aperture just too you know, like my dark space here. 410 00:27:56.839 --> 00:28:00.279 So it's not the greatest for dark spaces, but I do like it 411 00:28:00.400 --> 00:28:03.240 quite a bit, Um man. So we talked a little bit about lighting, 412 00:28:03.240 --> 00:28:07.240 a little bit about cameras, a little bit about soundproofing. Um, 413 00:28:07.279 --> 00:28:14.200 when you are setting up like your microphone, is it important that people who 414 00:28:14.240 --> 00:28:17.839 are just getting started like go ahead and get an interface and get a dynamic 415 00:28:17.880 --> 00:28:19.359 mic and all that kind of stuff? What do you recommend your clients, 416 00:28:19.400 --> 00:28:22.920 your your Newbie, we'll go newby around your newbie clients. They don't know 417 00:28:22.960 --> 00:28:27.519 anything what kind of microphones you're gonna recommend to them. So I recommend anything 418 00:28:27.599 --> 00:28:33.680 that's really easy to use. And I've been using I know I used when 419 00:28:33.680 --> 00:28:37.480 I jumped in and a ton of people when they jumped into space, they've 420 00:28:37.480 --> 00:28:40.640 been using the eat the Yeti right and I was like okay, yet he's 421 00:28:40.680 --> 00:28:45.440 working for me. And then finally I switched over to the shore MV Seven 422 00:28:45.480 --> 00:28:48.759 and sure only seven has dual interface. You can either plug it into an 423 00:28:48.759 --> 00:28:55.759 interface or plug this directly into your computer using the USB. So it just 424 00:28:55.880 --> 00:29:00.400 makes it really simple and, uh, you know, really simple bill set 425 00:29:00.440 --> 00:29:03.519 up, because I don't want to spend I don't want people spending time in 426 00:29:03.920 --> 00:29:08.160 troubleshooting problems. You and I were experts. We you know, we deal 427 00:29:08.200 --> 00:29:11.480 with but if I have a client coming in and like hey, just tell 428 00:29:11.519 --> 00:29:15.960 me what to get. I don't want to do research, I just want 429 00:29:15.960 --> 00:29:19.039 to I wanted to be able to plug and play. So that's where I 430 00:29:19.119 --> 00:29:26.440 recommend go to showing me seven. It's a New York uh microphone. It's 431 00:29:26.480 --> 00:29:30.440 you know, it's got the heritage from the SM seven B. You know 432 00:29:30.519 --> 00:29:33.519 it's been around. If they've put in some really good tech inside it and 433 00:29:33.680 --> 00:29:37.200 it just sounds really clean. Yeah, once again, hope of my wife's 434 00:29:37.240 --> 00:29:41.519 not watching. I have one of those on the way. So I can't 435 00:29:41.799 --> 00:29:44.640 I can't wait to try it out and music, because I love shore products, 436 00:29:44.680 --> 00:29:47.240 man, I love the you know I obviously I used the seven B 437 00:29:47.480 --> 00:29:49.720 here I got a fifty eight that. Man, if the fifty eight looked 438 00:29:49.720 --> 00:29:52.920 better on camera, I would use it. I just love the sound of 439 00:29:52.960 --> 00:29:56.799 that microphone. So, Um, if I was doing that, and I 440 00:29:56.799 --> 00:29:59.480 want to remind people to like we are, we are live. So if 441 00:29:59.480 --> 00:30:02.559 you guys have any questions, drop them in a chat near you and we're 442 00:30:02.640 --> 00:30:07.000 both live on mine and your Amazon live channel, and there's care sales down 443 00:30:07.039 --> 00:30:10.599 below of those those or to the side. However, you're watching it. 444 00:30:10.680 --> 00:30:12.400 So if you see you know a product that we're talking about. If you 445 00:30:12.440 --> 00:30:15.599 see a product in the care Sol and you have a question about it. 446 00:30:15.039 --> 00:30:18.839 Um, these are all the things that we use, or maybe not all 447 00:30:18.880 --> 00:30:21.839 the things, but several of the things we use in our studios and we're 448 00:30:21.880 --> 00:30:25.160 just kind of hanging out talking about, you know, building your home studio, 449 00:30:25.359 --> 00:30:29.119 showing up better, showing up with confidence, and I'm in you know, 450 00:30:29.119 --> 00:30:33.519 and and somebody over here on our all right, my Amazon thing, 451 00:30:33.599 --> 00:30:37.359 Gabriel said, uh or Gabe said, I remember watching June eight install some 452 00:30:37.400 --> 00:30:41.960 of his lighting on the shelves behind him. So, Um, that's cool. 453 00:30:41.960 --> 00:30:45.039 When you have followers and people who you know, we'll watch you evolve. 454 00:30:45.119 --> 00:30:48.240 It's not similar to what we're doing. It's not, Hey, I'm 455 00:30:48.240 --> 00:30:53.279 gonna just go spending grant and set up my backdrop, but it's at a 456 00:30:53.319 --> 00:30:56.440 thing here, at a shelf there, and Um, you know, that's 457 00:30:56.440 --> 00:31:00.880 what I did. I started out and here and I just ripped everything out 458 00:31:00.880 --> 00:31:03.359 because I'm like, I can't figure out what I want to do, so 459 00:31:03.359 --> 00:31:06.920 I'm gonna have a little fun with green screen for a while and then I 460 00:31:07.039 --> 00:31:08.759 might get a big shelf, you know, or it might move the whole 461 00:31:08.759 --> 00:31:12.039 thing around. I'm not sure yet. So yeah, maybe I just need 462 00:31:12.079 --> 00:31:17.920 to hire you June and come over and figure it out for me. Absolutely, 463 00:31:17.920 --> 00:31:21.680 and that's something that I do right. So people can either take my 464 00:31:21.759 --> 00:31:26.119 course, uh and, you know, walk walking themselves by themselves, and 465 00:31:26.160 --> 00:31:29.920 I'll just walk them through. Okay, this is how you install these different 466 00:31:29.960 --> 00:31:33.839 things that, this is how you figure out what lends to using your room, 467 00:31:33.000 --> 00:31:37.119 or then I or either I can walk them with me, you know, 468 00:31:37.200 --> 00:31:41.599 do it with them, uh, and tell them, okay, let's 469 00:31:41.720 --> 00:31:44.519 figure out your room size. And you already share, you know, you've 470 00:31:44.519 --> 00:31:51.079 got a thirteen by UM fourteen or thirteen by fifteen room with a really high 471 00:31:51.119 --> 00:31:56.000 ceiling. So what I do for that is I create a virtual room and 472 00:31:56.039 --> 00:31:59.799 a software, because, guess what, we can do three D cat this 473 00:32:00.000 --> 00:32:06.480 line on computers now. So I do that with taking the dimensions and creating 474 00:32:06.519 --> 00:32:09.640 that room and the software and telling you, okay, based on what you 475 00:32:09.720 --> 00:32:14.720 showed me, based on where the windows and the doors are, this is 476 00:32:14.759 --> 00:32:16.440 where you should place your camera, this is the Lens that you want to 477 00:32:16.480 --> 00:32:22.720 go with. And then I walked them through. Okay, here's a list 478 00:32:22.759 --> 00:32:25.759 of gear that you might want to get and here's how you would wire everything 479 00:32:25.799 --> 00:32:30.640 together. So I worked with people and, you know, these different capacities, 480 00:32:30.799 --> 00:32:37.640 just so they don't have to spend six months and just figuring out which 481 00:32:37.720 --> 00:32:40.799 hardware, you know, which microphone, which which desk, which mount, 482 00:32:42.359 --> 00:32:45.839 which teleprompter, which? You know, there's so many variables and time is 483 00:32:45.880 --> 00:32:51.920 something that we don't have enough of. Time is something that's already fleeting like 484 00:32:52.000 --> 00:32:55.480 this moment. That's fast. It's not coming back. But the hundred dollars 485 00:32:55.519 --> 00:33:00.880 you spend, guess what you're gonna make a hunter box dest around the corner. 486 00:33:00.119 --> 00:33:02.839 Yeah, yeah, man, absolutely well. And now, and I 487 00:33:02.920 --> 00:33:07.000 think that's another thing too, that I love about, you know, seeing 488 00:33:07.039 --> 00:33:12.079 you build these studios and help people build the studios. It is like a 489 00:33:12.160 --> 00:33:14.920 cheat code, you know, and that's why I think when somebody hires someone 490 00:33:15.000 --> 00:33:16.079 like you, it's like it is a cheat code. It's like, Hey, 491 00:33:16.119 --> 00:33:20.519 I've done the work, I've researched the you know, like just me 492 00:33:20.640 --> 00:33:23.640 buying these Sony's, like I researched so many different cameras and so many different 493 00:33:23.640 --> 00:33:29.039 models and watch hours of youtube videos. But if I just had a pro 494 00:33:29.440 --> 00:33:30.799 that knows a lot about cameras, say hey, just buy this one. 495 00:33:30.799 --> 00:33:34.119 It's gonna do what you want. Put these settings on, it's gonna get 496 00:33:34.160 --> 00:33:37.880 you this kind of look that you want. Um, it does give us 497 00:33:37.960 --> 00:33:42.680 as creators more of an opportunity just to step into something that's already put together 498 00:33:42.839 --> 00:33:45.200 and starting doing what we actually want to do.

And here's 533 00:35:51.679 --> 00:35:53.559 the thing, and this is kind of this kind of like a little appetizer 534 00:35:53.639 --> 00:35:57.440 for people listening and going hey, I want to set up a home studio. 535 00:35:58.039 --> 00:36:00.000 Um, there is a lot of stuff to it. I mean, 536 00:36:00.039 --> 00:36:04.880 if you obviously saw Jun as set up there, it's a ton of stuff, 537 00:36:04.960 --> 00:36:07.719 ton of cabling, ton of wires, ton of connections, stuff work. 538 00:36:07.840 --> 00:36:12.000 Stuff isn't working right now because he's switching stuff out. Um. So 539 00:36:12.039 --> 00:36:14.400 I want to encourage people to give you, you know, give you a 540 00:36:14.440 --> 00:36:17.960 call and we could talk all day about rigging stuff and lighting and cameras and 541 00:36:19.039 --> 00:36:21.920 we could go down that route. But is there anything that we really haven't 542 00:36:21.920 --> 00:36:23.119 covered that you're like? Man, I just want to share this to make 543 00:36:23.119 --> 00:36:28.400 sure I get it out there before we dip out of here all. The 544 00:36:28.440 --> 00:36:30.719 one thing that I tell everybody, even if you don't have a studio, 545 00:36:31.159 --> 00:36:37.440 guess what, you have a thousand dollar camera in your pocket that you can 546 00:36:37.440 --> 00:36:42.719 start using to get comfortable in front of the camera. The first thing that 547 00:36:42.800 --> 00:36:45.800 I tell the first thing that I did myself, before I even built the 548 00:36:45.840 --> 00:36:51.599 studio, was got comfortable in front of the camera by having interviews, by 549 00:36:51.719 --> 00:36:57.159 doing interviews, by being guests, being guests on my show or being guests 550 00:36:57.159 --> 00:37:00.199 on other people's show, and just having those conversations, because when you do 551 00:37:00.280 --> 00:37:07.199 that you get a little you get over the fear of sounding, you know, 552 00:37:07.239 --> 00:37:13.400 being uncomfortable. So get uncomfortable to get comfortable. So one of the 553 00:37:13.400 --> 00:37:17.320 things that I do is Um we had a challenge run and and you know 554 00:37:17.360 --> 00:37:21.119 literally does that and a lot of people do this, you know, thirty 555 00:37:21.159 --> 00:37:25.559 day video challenge, where every single day you're creating a video, you're recording 556 00:37:25.599 --> 00:37:32.039 a video and just talking about what's on your mind and and that's really hard. 557 00:37:32.119 --> 00:37:37.519 So I made it a little bit easier by sending you a daily prompt. 558 00:37:37.519 --> 00:37:42.079 Hey, go create a video, talk about this question, answer this 559 00:37:42.199 --> 00:37:45.800 question. So now when you're asking a question, guess what's happening, you're 560 00:37:45.840 --> 00:37:49.760 not thinking about what you look like, you're just focusing on answering that question 561 00:37:50.199 --> 00:37:54.440 and you get easier and you get comfortable when you do that. Yeah, 562 00:37:54.519 --> 00:37:58.719 man, I love it. I love it, I think. Is it? 563 00:37:58.800 --> 00:38:01.440 Christo from dilk masters always says, you know, you gotta put in 564 00:38:01.440 --> 00:38:06.960 the reps and to yeah, and that's just, like, you know, 565 00:38:07.000 --> 00:38:08.079 necess like anything, though, it's like, if you want to learn your 566 00:38:08.079 --> 00:38:12.000 software, get in there and just build. You know, I've been doing 567 00:38:12.039 --> 00:38:15.119 that over the past couple of weeks, just like you know, building three 568 00:38:15.159 --> 00:38:19.920 different creating daily shows like backgrounds and backdrops, just to see what I like. 569 00:38:20.000 --> 00:38:22.119 You know, it's like, okay, I don't like that, let 570 00:38:22.159 --> 00:38:23.800 me dress something else. Okay, I don't like that, Um, and 571 00:38:23.840 --> 00:38:27.719 it's not. The beauty about doing all this stuff digitally is like we can 572 00:38:27.719 --> 00:38:30.400 always change it up, we can always make it different, you can always 573 00:38:30.599 --> 00:38:34.039 we do whatever we want, which is so crazy.
