I think I forgot to mention that I have been searching for a better way to film my videos. Previously, I had a tripod taped to the top of my shelving so that the video camera would hang over the tall unit in the corner of my room. However, I wasn't really happy with this for two reasons; 1) It wasn't very nice seeing the tape all over my unit and 2) that corner of the room is dark and it wasn't the ideal position to film even with daylight lamps on.
Anyway, I asked Mark if it would be possible for my camera (a new proper video camera rather than my flip video) to be mounted over my desk by the window. I didn't really think we would be able to do it 'on the cheap' but he has only gone and done it! I bought a tripod for £10 that had a telescopic stick bit that could come out (not very technical, I know) and Mark went to Maplins and ingeniously bought a microphone holder which can be screwed to the top of the window. The tripod fits into the microphone holder perfectly! It's brilliant, I love it.
Look, here is the desk all set up and ready to make this canvas with my camera in place :)
So, with this all set up and being able, with this set up to actually see what I am filming as I am filming it I made this canvas :)
Here is the video:
