I gave myself the challenge to introduce myself in 30 seconds. Here is what I came up with.
Here is my intro in 30 seconds. Hello! I love to tell stories. I also wrote this book. I dance flamenco and I enjoy drawing and painting. Over time these activities began to merge and inspire each other. What’s going to happen next? I don’t know, but hey stay tuned it’s bound to be interesting.
That little shot with the chewing gum at the end took over 30 takes and was by far the hardest thing in the whole video. Funny how I found it challenging to make bubbles with my chewing gum on demand. Yet when I am not thinking about it, it happens all the time on its own.
For the 30 seconds video, I chose to wear one of my favorite colorful dresses. My favorite part is that the right sleeve doesn’t match the left sleeve. Plus it has colorful crazy patterns all over. Wearing it always cheers me up. As if the colorful patterns on the dress give me energy. In the background I placed one of my paintings called The Joy of Being Lonely. I chose it because it matches what I am wearing.
Coming up with a 30 seconds description was actually difficult. It forced me to boil down what is really important and ignore details. It’s proved to be a good challenge because it forced me to think about what is really important and what is just decoration.
So if you had to describe yourself in 30 seconds, what would you say? Love to hear it. Leave me a comment below.
