Last week we talked about what it’s gonna take to make you feel at home on camera.
This week I’ve been thinking about the compartmentalizing we do to stay sane. (I promise this is going somewhere 🙂
Maybe a loved one goes in for cancer surgery, but you still need to soldier on. Hard to do, but more to the point, is it always a good idea?
Compartmentalization happens in video all the time. You want to be great on camera, but you don’t want to think about what the camera does to make you look great. You shut out those anxious thoughts, creating an enormous gap in your awareness.
I think that’s a gap that needs to be closed. Don’t listen to those who tell you it doesn’t.
It’s way less complicated than we often make it. In fact, the most difficult gap to close is the one between your ears.
Want to be trusted? (It’s a good idea these days.)
If so, close the gap.
