Meet The Creators #5 – OnlyJustLucy

New Meet The Creators post, this time I was honoured to ask the questions to serial videographer and Youtuber OnlyJustLucy. I first got introduced to Lucy on a compilation video she made for Gary Vaynerchuk and then again with a Belfast edit showing off her version of the city. I love seeing how different people view the same things and especially in somewhere as small as Belfast.

A change is as good as a break

I wrote last time about taking a breaking from being creative and while we all need a deserved break from time to time I also want to talk about other ways to stop that creative burnout. Continue reading

How to improve editing workflow

We all love creating things but there is only so much time in a day to get things done. From working 9-5, to family time and other hobbies sometimes we can all stand to get creative in how we work to help speed things up. This is mainly a video editing workflow improvement but some of them will transfer over to other skills Continue reading

How to be more productive day to day

I’ve wrote previously about how to stay creative when motivation trails off but today I want to dig into my process of staying productive on a day to day basis. I work a 9-5 job at the minute and between posting on instagram, writing my blog and editing down vlogs – finding time to spend with family and friends always take precedence and I slack off.

Photo Post (01/08/2017)

Over the last few months, I have got more and more into photography and posting daily (minus the odd exception) on Instagram and am loving it, posting daily pushes my creativity to his maximum and makes me take more notice to my surroundings. We all move from place to place with end goal in side, slowing down a little a enjoying the journey makes us notice more things around us. Continue reading

How To Vlog

Over the last 18months I’ve been contemplating vlogging but due to a 9-5 office job and responsibilities I just haven’t got round to starting, it’s another “WANT TO DO” mixed in with the pile of “NEED TO DO”.
