A few months ago, a friend of mine emailed me details about a competition that she saw; Samsung were searching the globe for Global Bloggers. Her comment to me was 'check this link out, can totes see your lively self engaging the audience with your witty charms!' So I did.
My initial thoughts were I don't have time to produce the video and go through the process and as if I would be in with a chance! But then I was watching The Voice one night and thought to myself, hey you are like these people trying to live the dream, give this comp a go, it could be the start of something special.
From that moment on, it was full steam ahead. I looked at the comp website and the other finalists that were already up there, I thought they were pretty dull to be honest, simply one shot face to camera, I didn't want to do that, I wanted to be different, stand out and show why I would be the best Blogger. I have no shame, I am passionate and have all the media skills, personality and drive to be successful. Next, I needed the concept, script, some help from a cameraman, the props, location etc.
The concept, script and props all came to me quite quickly as did my cameraman and support. I had met Dan Taylor, the Toowoomba Mayors son at an event a few weeks before I heard about the competition and discovered his interest in and career in media, music and madness in Sydney... I thought this is the man for the job. Everything seemed to fall into place from then on and so the end result is this video which made it to the Finals of the Global Blogging competition. Stay tuned for the next video...
