i’m channel 6 famous!

24 03 2011

i hate watching myself on film. i hate my voice. i make funny squinty faces and wave my hands around too much… it makes me cringe. but every now and again, a girl has to get on camera for the greater good. (and no, girls gone wild does not count as the greater good).

well, i’ve been posting on the wcsh6 around town blog for a while, and a couple of weeks ago their fabulous community web producer asked me if i would be in a promo spot for the website.

scary, right? but who am i to turn down free publicity, and the opportunity to help out someone who helped me out.

the process was actually really fun and totally not traumatizing. the producer and camera man came over to my house, microphoned me up, and asked me a bunch of questions. i tried not to look like a fidgety spaz. the best part was when we were done filming and we all hung out and talked about nerd stuff. i also love that in the final cut, my apartment is heavily featured.

well, as if recording my very first (and likely last) commercial wasn’t enough…

yesterday at the maine tweetup, there was yet another wcsh6 producer there to shoot a spot about using twitter to build your brand/business. guess who they interviewed? guess who had terrible hair and not enough blush? it’s actually a pretty cute little clip, but can you say sausage arms?

but again, the greater good. although how could i have possibly forgotten to pimp the IKEA BUS?  i’m going to try putting out my very first press release this weekend, so perhaps i’ll get a chance to be on tv again?

Eff you…you’re ADORABLE, and you have a GREAT tv voice (which means you have a great radio voice too). You totally need to do a press release for the IKEA bus. I say that despite the pain of it conflicting with the Roller Derby show.

You look great and are a good sport! Happy I was finally able to meet you! I have a feeling this will NOT be your last tv appearance. 😉
