How to convert a Japanese cupboard into a YouTube Studio
  • Covid update

    I spend a great deal of my non-teaching time in my studio at home creating. It’s important to be comfortable and use well designed and capable equipment. For those of you now working from home I hope you find some great ideas here.

  • The Magic CrayonsYouTube Channel now has over 1,700 subscribers and over 812,000 views+. Can I make it to 1 million this year! This is amazing. Thank you ! Below are links to all the video camera, photography and software gear that I use to produce the videos, with brief notes on why I chose that item. Also, a video about how I made my studio and the equipment I chose to install.

    A great many people have helped me over the years, so as a thank you please do let me know of what else you would find useful on this page via TpT or the Live Chat on this page.

  • I was so lucky with this ! The Ikea Bekant Desk(IKEA Link) is just the lovely birch colour I wanted and was 2cm narrower than the space I had in my cupboard for it. It has nice white trim and adjustable height. If you live near a store then collecting is straight forward, otherwise you will need probably pay an inflated reseller price in Amazon.

  • Video eats up storage and it all needs to be backed up. I use TimeMachine to look after my iMac. I use external drives for storage and back up, withChronoSyncfor scheduling of backups. I’ve always bought Buffalo external hard drives and have 2TB and 3TB versions. I took an old 250GB one apart the other day and see they use Western Digital drives inside. Just recently 5TB drives have started appear at sensible prices so bought theWD HDD 5TBElements Desktop USB3.0. This will do me nicely until I start getting into 4K Video I’d imagine.
