The Video’s Here!
My friend has released his “camping in the 1800s” video that he shot here at the farm.
I’m not impressed with my acting abilities, but mercifully I’m only in it for a minute. If you ask me, the dogs and sheep steal the show!
I come in at 4:20, and the dogs and sheep and goat are in it from 16:30 on to the end.
And, when it comes to costuming for the late 1800s, do as I say, not as I do! I am not even going to put this post into my “historic clothing” category. I need a “what NOT to do” category. I did have pretty short notice about this video and I threw together odds and ends of clothes that I hoped would evoke “the olden days”. Fortunately Ken says right up front that he is trying to show the past without re-enacting it in every detail. If you ever need actual advice about the actual clothes of the 1800s, though, I know a lot more than is apparent in this costume and I could at least point you in the right direction.
All of Ken’s videos are very gentle, peaceful, and informative. He spends hours working on these videos to teach people the restorative powers of nature. I was happy I could help out with this one!
I am sitting here with the biggest grin on my face! I loved, loved, loved this!! The music, the gentle style … you played your part so well. All of it was enjoyable. The animals at the end did steal the show. 🙂 Very nice job by everyone!
Glad you liked it! I used to work in a historical park, so it was familiar ground, but it was interesting to see the considerations that go into making a video.
I loved it; you did great and yes, the animals very cute! The dogs were being dogs – begging for a handout! I thought the video was well done; thanks for sharing.
Thank you! I think Ken does a good job of balancing a lot of different elements – history and nature with a little fun!
What a great video! And I think you did a wonderful job! We used to do historical reenactment, so this was a treat to watch. When I began to sing along with the Goober Peas song my husband was astonished; he had never heard that song before. I learned it in elementary school a million years ago! 🙂
I’ll have to tell Ken – he loves his Goober Peas song!
I did a pretty good job of slipping back into my reenactment mindset – I never said, “OK” – but we did have to do another take because I finished my speech with “Have a nice day!” Ah, the little things. 🙂
How fun! I enjoyed that video. I think I saw one of the dogs run off with one of the spoons! It made me laugh when the guy said early on he needed to get away from the village.
I’m glad you liked it! I also had to rescue their gourd bowls from the dogs several times!
