Many people love to watch the creative process. I know I do. The videos that come across my Facebook wall showing artists making their art is fascinating. These videos show the artist making their creation from start to finish, and the videos are typically time lapsed to between one and three minutes.
Making videos has never been easier. If you own a smart phone or Ipad, you already have everything you need. You do not need fancy, expensive equipment to make promotional videos, unless you want to do editing and add special effects. Otherwise, ask a teenager to teach you how to make videos using your mobile device. Or, you can always ask Youtube. There are many videos on this subject.
Lastly, video can be a powerful marketing/promotional tool for an artist. Videos rank higher on search engines, get shared more, and have a more powerful effect than a static image. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video is worth a million.
As a professional artist since 2004, I am compelled to help new artists. More seasoned, successful artists helped me along the way, so I want to pay it forward. You can watch all my videos on how to make, market and sell your artwork at www.ThomasAndrewArt.tv.
