Big Things Are Happening
While I can’t talk too much about it yet because the deal is still being worked out, but last week I got a very interesting direct message on Twitter that led to a few emails and eventually a really cool conference call about a project I should be starting next week.
What I can say is that I was contacted by a prominent book publisher who is going to be releasing a companion video series for a title slated for release sometime next month. They have asked me to record about a dozen 3-4min videos teaching beginners the essentials of Photoshop using CS6 – not necessarily teaching the latest features of CS6, just using that version as the platform and work environment as we explore what you need to do to get up and running with Photoshop.
I’ve been producing Photoshop training videos on and off for a few years and have always gotten positive feedback from viewers – I even got an honorable mention from a NAPP training a couple of years back. I’ve been working on Season 2 of my graphic design podcast and have taught workshops and one-on-one sessions as well, so this sort of thing is right up my alley and I am so excited that they saw my work, liked my style, and thought of me for the project. I know it’s going to be a lot of work, but what a foot in the door! I can’t wait to get started and see what I can do to really make my mark on the project and further establish myself.
Don’t worry, I am told that I’ll have a couple of segments to share as promotional materials for myself so you can see what I’ve come up with.
