How to make your own painting video

I would love to have someone describe how to make an art video (say - in your studio or while you paint outside). It could be great if someone could do an Art Byte of that too.

I like this blog, lots of nuggets here! Thanks @jderycke.

@elisabeth_seeger I have long wanted to do a art video, not because of the teaching (I’m no teacher) but to give a glimpse of the art being made like I have enjoyed other artists’ vids. And to sell more art , because vids can sell art.

At the end I decided that although I may one day make a video, it was much more important to explore painting further and enjoy the little time I do have to paint. The last thing I want is to learn something ELSE that takes me away from painting.

From what I have observed, there are lots of ways to do an art video. Just plant the camera and turn it on=done. Add background music, over titles, or instruction. Speed up the time, and a combo of all of that. So perhaps if you observe other’s videos and when you like something-do a search for that element howto…

I myself plan to bribe one of my kids someday.

Thank you, Johan! Will check that out.

I did a little digging for ya!

Here’s the posts on James Gurney’s blog with label video:
Sometimes he describes an aspect of how his video was made in the post or in the video.

Thank again, Johan - that looks very promising. I will look at that tomorrow - did a little video but sound was wimpy and I need some sort of editing software. I appreciate you taking time to look that up for me

I made about 15 art videos but nothing that was really instructional. My most popular one has over 216,000 views. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/Hd6WbS_7ouk I didn’t want to bore people with a 2 hr. video, so I made it time-lapse.

Casey Neistat is a fun vlogger to watch and learn from. He has a few tutorials too on equipment and editing and storytelling.

Also another really helpful community / podcast with lots of video and self-promo content is the Sean Mccabe’s lettering community at seanwes.com
