Last week I spoke at Creative Mornings and this is the video of the entire thing. Like many people, I have a fear of public speaking but I’ve made a personal goal to do it until it’s easy and then I’ll quit forever.
I can get embarrassed hearing my own voice on someone else’s answering machine so to say I’m posting this reluctantly is an understatement. I have a hunch though, I think watching video of yourself might be a big part of getting over the fear of public speaking. Sharing this also prevents me from re-using any of this material for future talks, and I kinda like that.
A giant thank-you to everyone involved in organizing the event, and two hundred high-fives for everyone that was there (especially the ones laughing really loud, can you be in the audience for everything I do for the rest of my life?)
The last half of the video is a Q&A and I’m open to continuing the discussion here in the comments below! If you have questions, or if this inspired you in some small way, I’d love to hear from you!
Ayumu Arisaka, Mai Oita, and Ren Kohata are known as Saigo No Shudan. Together they are making some of the most unconventional animations I’ve seen. They combine drawings, paintings, cut-outs, toys, you name it. Their work is unpredictable, and totally refreshing. Enjoy several of their videos below!
