Filming for the London Jewellery School

For my first foray into being a media star (!) I was asked to film a part of the London Jewellery School Distance Learning Jewellery Business Course DVD. The distance learning course has been available for about a year and has been very popular. The director of the School, Jessica Rose, was keen to revamp the content of the course materials to keep it up to date and respond to feedback. In the original DVD Jessica filmed all the sections herself. This time she asked myself and Hayley Kruger, another tutor from the Jewellery School, to share the filming. 
The course covers all the areas you need to consider when setting up a jewellery business including finance, getting online, PR and more. You also get a workbook, free membership for the LJS and a voucher worth the price of a taster class so I think it is very good value. 
For my filmed sections I typed up my script so that I didn't stumble on my words! I used a free telepromt app on the ipad called promptware and I have to recommend it, it was really useful and I'm sure it saved a lot of time in the end.
The videos are now being edited and put together to make the DVD. I'll let you know when it's out as I'll get a copy. Not sure if I'll watch it though! I hate listening to myself on tape!
