Hello! I am Aleksandra, Sasha or Sashu as my friends call me - that's where my project's name comes from - SASH? d?cor bureau.

I live in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), but originally from Belarus and in love with Paris :)
I make various handmade stuff since early childhood. Now I run Etsy shop, where I sell the best results of my creative experiments that meet all high quality requirements and pass my strong self-criticism filter.

I like to challenge myself, to learn and to develop. This permanent creative process fills my shop with a variety of styles and techniques. I take natural materials (linen, cotton, wool, natural stones, wood, etc.) and transform them to cozy home decor & textiles, stylish earrings & accessories, and other beautiful stuff.

I do everything ... See full profile

1. Class Overview: Hi, I'm Alexandra, and I'm very happy to welcome you in my class. It's just almost six months since my first visit to still share to the competition because I didn't know what to teach. Actually, I had a lot of ideas, but mainly because I thought it's almost impossible. Technically, as I didn't have any equipment, I didn't have any experience. So for everything, etcetera still don't but have over the published two classes. I also helped my husband to human produced, crisper, still share class and also helped several friends who announced share teaches to my favorite motivational phrase used to begin begin, and they're back. Several months ago, I just didn't begin finally, and was surprised to find out that I already have ever seen needed to make a class to produce a class of any former you need an iPhone or against any other smartphone that can record video. I've cat forms at Microsoft Power Point. Yes, now jokes a phone with headphones. That's all that you must probably already have on your computer, and most probably have Italy small use experience in it. No need to buy any equipment to buy additional soft to the low traditional, So I'm going to share with you. Keeps from my cross making experience. Hope it will be useful and motivational, and you'll not wait half a year to make a first class. 2. Intro: There are several former off video classic songs feel share. Duggan Head Demonstration slides, fostering cast Depending on the class topic and Inter presentation needs. You decide which for me to choose how to meet several of them. We'll talk about each woman separately in each class. We're going to talk about filming and post production approaches, and I'll share and bond trip useful keeps in this particular class. We're going to dive into the process off, creating video in talking head for months. 3. Filming: to film in talking cat Former, you'll need your iPhone iPhone headphones on. Try board or something to stabilize your phone. Let's get ready for Fieldman. Fix the mic. Pin it on your clothes at your chest level. This way it will be on the same place all the time, and your voice will be recorded with even bullet. Now take a phone and said It's William at the marks. Make sure that you have enough members space as video files will need a lot of it. I keep my phone connected to the left Hope so I did load video and free space on the mobile at once. After recording every take, Jack also video sevens and said them at least 720 fire. Do not use front camera as it produces lower quality of video. Fix the phone on the tri port or a bunch of books. I use a handmade tripod made from common bile holder, some paper scorch and the desk lamp. Use your fantasy. Find a good angle for your future video. Ask a friend to help or use an object to see how you see looks on the screen. For example, put a teddy bear on your future place in front of the camera. Now plug in the headphones carefully trying not to move the phone, not to miss the perfect angle. You just found time to take a place. Also careful. Don't forget that you are now tied to the one with headphones Court. You're ready for the first take. Use home button on your headphones to start recording. To stop recording. Press home button again. Several more advice. Divide text in short pieces and record them separately. Make several tries for each and choose the one where, like everything and don't have any mistakes and stumbles also make forces at the beginning and then off every take. You got them later. If needed. Rename files properly. When you don't load them, it'll save time and help you later. 4. Post-production: Now, when we have film video, it's time for step off port production to put it all together. So create a new PowerPoint presentation. And first of all, let's juice for it worked ratio still share. It's 16 to 9, so go to design Slide size Andrews 16 to 9. Now let's add a video file. It is very easy. Choose insert video video on my PC and find the needed wild. Select and click open. When the video file is invited to the slight, you can change its size. Make it full screen will make it smaller the same way as you change image size. With help of mouse, I'll go to leader tools for months and said needed size here. Then you can also align the video vertically and horizontally. This gives you a lot of freedom for more complicated design for your future field. You can also dream your video file. For example, you can cut the poses at the beginning or end of the video. Select video element you'll say, highlighted every on your toolbar. Choose playback and find here between video bottom. A small window will appear where you can change Scott time and end time off your reader is needed, you can review the results. You can also cancel or Eddie. This changes at any moment. Just repeat the steps as many times as needed. When you will be satisfied. Press OK. You can double share the result off dreaming right on the slide. We have to set video to start automatically. For this select video element, you'll see highlighted era on your toolbar. Choose playback and find here. Start options select automatically. You can preview the result by luncheon slideshow from current slight. You may need to adjust volume off the video again. Make sure that he really is selected. Press playback and highlighted error off to bar and find button volume. Four Options available here from Lord If I m Ute just the one that you need, said it maximum to get maximum off south or mute if you want to cover a video. Is music Yes, You can also add music as background or total recall. With some parts of media that sound elements you need to choose. Insert audio audio might be see and just needed order file and press insert. So like the song element, find highlighted area on the toolbar, Click plane back and feel free to just properties off your order as needed. Loop it dreaming, etcetera. If you want to make it as background music, then reduce volume. Set it to start automatically jerking animation pain that music and videos start together, which prevue off, slide and make any needed corrections. You may also want to add some slights that will be played at the beginning or the end of the video. For example, a title slide Go to insert new slide. True is the diable slide. You need change order of slides by simply dragging them and now design a title slide as you wanted to be. Options are almost endless here. Change text Select, Desirable, formed and its size. The line text, etcetera. Make us menu of the slides. As you need. Now we have ever seen almost ready before. We'll convert of a presentation to video former Let's edit its structure. If you need to receive several separate video parts, then you have to divide accordingly. Representation. Just select the needed slides, corporate them and face to in your presentation remain and save it. For example, you'll select old slides that have to be an intra video. You say them a separate presentation under the file name Interest. Now we have a totally ready presentation that we have to convert to Videophile. We simply select file menu, click expert and create video truce presentation quality as it's the highest. Que Leave with no changes. This options we will need in future classes. Here you said your rations off all slide that do not have video elements like a title slide .

Resume: So it's less frightening now, isn't it? Home to class was helpful and you are almost ready to become a teacher. You remember to begin, begin one more advice before saying goodbye. What is really helpful is a good planet. Still, share has a point. Commanding U. S A. Teacher to start with video outlines, follow this advice. It will be easier to structure in for to understand what former film and you need not. To me, it's important tips to just quantity of takes. So good luck. Thank you for watching and see you. 6.
