All I want for Christmas is… you. Well, okay, that’s not entirely true. Which isn’t to say you’re not wonderful and that I don’t appreciate you. Of course I do! You take the time to read what I write here and I can’t think of anything better than that! But there are also some other things I want too…
The JVC Picsio. Small enough to take anywhere, but without compromising on quality, this little beauty can shoot full 1080P high definition video and take 8 megapixel photographs.
Slik Mini Tripod. Large tripods can be handy, but sometimes all you need is a little height and manoeuvrability and the use of a sturdy table. Again, portability is the prize here – you don’t want to carry a whole studio setup with you when you’re on, say, holidays for example.
Rode Procaster. An affordable broadcast quality microphone. A welcome step up from the little microphone I use to record my podcasts with at the moment. (Preferably with optional PSM1 shock mount.)
Less Tangiable Things. Inspiration. Courage. Gratitude. Faith. An audience. A creative community. Good friends. New experiences. A lust for – and comedic enjoyment of – life. The ability to take myself less seriously…
Okay, so I say “the ability to take myself less seriously” but, honestly… Well, I think this still shot from a future Christmas collaboration video speaks volumes.
[I’m telling everyone who sees this picture that I “take all my fashion cues from Lady Gaga.”]
What do you want for Christmas? Tell me in the comments… Even if you think you have no hope of getting it. Dream often and dream well.
