You may remember when we Smitten girls went on our retreat in the fall. Besides brainstorming the second Smitten
story, we were also there to shoot a video which our publisher had arranged for.
Here you'll see we were able to capture a whole 5 minutes of worthwhile material from over an hour of nerves and giggles. We were lucky to get that. Our editor Ami McConnell was there, giving direction--and believe me, we needed it.
Kristin laments a goof that made it into the final cut, but listen, when you're nervous and a camera's rolling, there's no telling what will slide off the tongue.
Last week in an interview, I encouraged listeners to buy Smitten
on audio and listen to it during their commute instead of the radio--did I mention this was during a radio
interview? Fortunately, they couldn't see me beating my head on the fridge at my stupidity, even as the words were leaving my mouth.
So, be amazed that the video crew managed to salvage five minutes of film. All I can say is, I wouldn't want to see the cutting room floor.
