Its funny how things happen. I had just landed back in Ireland having been on holiday in Spain. I went to bed feeling relaxed and happy after my great trip.
As I was getting ready to start work the next morning I received a breathless phone call - could I video a talk for the Kinsale Peace Project in half an hour! As you can imagine there wasn't any time to think about this it was just 'yes' or 'no'.
When I heard myself saying "Sure, I can do that" my internal voice was screaming at me...which cameras, what about batteries, are they charged, lights, format cards, mics, leads, extra sockets...and so it went on. This is a sure fire way to get rid of your feelings of relaxation post holiday in a flash, not a recommendtion. Anyway I got there with about a minute to spare and no time for planning or set-up. So this was what is know as a 'run and gun' or that's what it felt like anyway.
Was it worth it? Definitely. Tomi was such an inspiring speaker.
I'm curious what did you find inspiring in his talk? Post in the comments below.
After Tomi saw the video this is what he said:
This video is one of a series of three we made for DoctoralNet. We also created DVDs of the videos for our client to bring to the US when she was visiting Universities on the west coast so she could leave them with information on her technology.
If you cannot watch the video at this time here is the transcript:
I share some of the video here as we create them for our clients. Obviously it is important that our client likes the work and we make revisions until the client says it is ready (within reason.) That said the client needs to be happy at the script stage ever before the filming starts.
