Thanks for stopping by!
I’m actually having a day off today, but just wanted to share yesterday’s event with you, before we trundle off
to the coast for the day, for a spot of fresh air...
Now you may think this is just hype, that it’s all flannel, that I have to say positive things to stay in favour with the powers that be. Let me tell you the truth:
I had so much fun!
It was a pleasure from start to finish.
Rolled up at the studios at 6.30 am
|Early bird catches the worm...|
Nigel was already on top form and raring to go!
Dave and I had already been in the night before, to prepare the set,
and I had even made signs, in case we forgot the drill!
Keep it simple, and know where you are headed!
|Dim the lights, ready for take-off...|
|Lights, camera, action!|
And so it started!
You have to know that these presenters are the absolute best in the industry. When you work with them, you really grasp what they are achieving. And it is pretty impressive.
|Hour 1 Launch Nigel May|
|Hours 2 and 3 Leonie Pujol|
|Hours 4 and 5 Dave Bradford|
The Clarity One Day Wonder on Create & Craft.
5 live hours of Craft TV, all done and dusted in 12 hours?
Many many people have been planning, making and prepping
for many many weeks.
You cannot begin to imagine how many of us - at both ends - have been working together towards that one single event!
It was really hard work for a lot of people.
At Clarity Base and at the Studios.
Some you never see,
like the floor crew, stamp makers, assemblers, box packers
stencil makers, art workers and all those that make it happen!
Kirsty just ran around me all day,
helping in any way she could.
The camera guys, who never take their eye off the ball,
I could spend the whole day expressing thanks to those who made it possible, from the guys at Clarity Towers, my parents, the DT, to the Promo folks at C&C and so on. Suffice it to say that
from the concept (Oh damn. Barbara’s had another idea)
to SOLD OUT (fortunately it was a good’n),
many dozens of peeps have been hopping about.
One person in particular has always got my back...
I am extremely happy (and relieved) to report that the
One-Day Event was a great success.
You watched and you bought. In fact, you bought so much,
we sold out of the Bespoke Sets by hour 4.
Quite aside from the financial aspect,
which is important of course,
but never was nor will be my driver,
I loved working with competent, friendly, switched on people all day at the studio. Just like a huge version of Clarity really.
Finally, thank you to you, because without you good people, supporting little companies like us, where would we be?
Have a great day!
