GIRL ON FILM / A TASTY TEASER TO MY NEW COOKING CHANNEL!

GIRL ON FILM / A TASTY TEASER TO MY NEW COOKING CHANNEL!

So finally I’ve mustered up the courage to start my very own cooking channel on YouTube. Here before you is a little teaser for Ponytail Journal’s ‘Tastiest Life Possible’, an endeavour that has so far lead me to experience a whirlwind of emotion (mainly anxiety with a dash of stunned-deer). I had never thought about going down the path of being on TV in my whole life, so videos of myself (speaking that is) won’t show up in any dark corner of the internet. You guys don’t know what I’m like in person yet! On top of this, my parents were never the type to record their growing children on video tape, so the concept of watching myself speak on a screen is completely alien to me. Oh boy, is THIS a recipe for psychological blow-out! Before I started shooting this series, I had totally forgotten the fact that I am terribly self conscious of my speaking voice. Im pretty sure this is quite a common thing, but the idea that my Kermit-the-Frog-sounding voice (that is the lovechild of Fran Drescher and Ray Romano) would be broadcasted to the world, started to haunt me on set. ‘Line…’, ‘What the hot-dog am I doing here?’, ‘line…?’, ‘cut’, ‘lets try that again’, and lots of gosh-darn-its became the filming dialogue. It’s not like I haven’t had plenty of experience in front of cameras, acting for hefty budget commercials, singing live on stage, shooting while jumping in stilettos on a trampoline, and so on so forth, but the thought of exposing my real persona at 30 frames per second somehow seems so much scarier.

All this aside, I am super excited to share my tricks of the trade in the kitchen with you, and I’m sure you’re plenty keen to watch some steaming-hot tasty treat be pulled out of the oven or hear some crispy bacon being broken onto a stack of hotcakes – yes folks, I’m raising the bar on my food porn game. Soon you’ll experience a much more interactive window into my life, and fretful as I may be, I am much more excited to cook, plate, and eat all this deliciousness with y’all.
