How did you find it making the videos? the emotional / psychological, not the technical so much although obviously there is overlap.

I think there's a lot to be said for having some acting experience when making videos. I find it very difficult to imagine an audience behind that camera. I'm overly focused on what I am saying and how I am sounding, and it feels very unnatural. record - replay - delete - record - replay - delete ...

On the other hand, if I were being interviewed that would be a very different experience. For one, I'd be less aware of the camera. Is it because I'm speaking to someone in particular? Because it's more conversational/ less planned and rehearsed?
