This is the format I was thinking about....The before and after Instant Gratification Mini series.
Soon to be shown at a Airforum, Blog or website near you!
A series of before and after photos (each worth a thousand words!) Entered on a daily or weeky basis with sometimes no explanation needed and when necessary some background story. This could be just the techy info and occasionally the drama and or trauma.
This would be a fun way to see snapshot of actual progress and offer hope to all those that have just started their projects. I have found many times that restorations are started with great excitement and sometimes an unrealistic time estimate (guilty as charged)for the project. Lots of photos of Deconstructing Bambi
and then they disappear for two years.
When showing before
photos it is also possible to change the actual dates and time lines of your work to make you look superhuman in the process...or better yet, show some of the things that did not go as planned which is always good for comic relief.
This kind of show and tell appeals to me because of my short attention span and the fact that it requires sometimes hours of clicking through some of the EPIC SAGA restoration threads that have been on going longer then "The Sopanos" series. I have read these...and have the stiff neck to prove it.
So may I make a recommendation for the name of your MINI SERIES.......
Safari Survival Guide
Recalling the Ambassador
I could go on but I forget how many "projects" you have now.
Just one last idea....I think it would be a good idea to do some kind of storybook drawing (like used by film makers) by going through your photos and matching up the best examples. I do not think the restoration B/A has to be in order of the work completed as it's all about the final product anyway.
It might also be fun to add in a photo of what inspired you to do somthing a certain way. but mostly just before/after.
What do you think?
