Last week I had the opportunity to work with Walkers Shortbread cookies and the 411 Mommas to create a video highlighting their delicious cookies. I discovered their cookies at a local bookstore and they are really good! What made me even happier was that my kids, who are allergic to eggs and nuts, were able to eat them without a problem.
I really wanted to take the opportunity to create something unique to highlight their product. So I forced myself to think of something awesome and mind blowing. Of course, nothing came to me. That’s usually how it works when you are trying to be creative, doesn’t it?
So I let it go and went to bed. I knew that my brain was working on it all night because I woke up to an idea!
I jotted down my script on my phone in the wee hours of the morning and called my production team to see if we could make this happen. It took a few weeks to get everything scheduled but finally the day arrived!
Everyone at my job agreed to help out as well as some of the other entrepreneurs at my co-working space. I couldn’t believe how generous everyone was with their time. We set up lights and cameras and really got the place buzzing.
By the afternoon I was so exhausted but we had more to film with my kids. It was a challenge to keep them focused long enough to film but they did great. I’m learning more and more that my happy place is when I can do what I love with those I love around me. That’s really my passion.
Here’s how the video turned out. I hope that you like it. Remember that even when you feel like awesome stuff is happening for everyone else that you still have blessings to count in your own life!
A special thanks to The 411 Mommas and Walkers Shortbread Cookies for this opportunity.
