Video Companion Progress Update 2

Video 4 (Locking and Drawing) is done! I’ve pretty much finalized the script for Video 5 (Nocking and Drawing) and hope to begin shooting soon. 😀

Personal progress: thumbs are getting much better at handling pressure from the bow and arrows and it’s super fun working on the release and follow-through (I try to stay one concept ahead of the videos). I’ve gotten much more consistent with fletchless arrows hitting nearly straight and it’s awesome! However, I have also broken 10 of the 12 arrows I made for practice. Ouch! I think I chose way too flexible a shaft for those. When they hit at an extreme angle, they just snap. Off to learn more about arrow making, I suppose. 😀

Video Companion Progress Update 1

Hi all!

Just a quick note to say the scripts for “Locking and Drawing” and “Nocking and Drawing” are both done. Should begin shooting soon!

Personal practice: been busy lately but trying to get in 15 minute sessions a couple times a day. Just started seriously training Nocking. Lots of fumbling and a few dropped arrows, but when I’ve hit it right it felt like butter. I’m starting to really feel the potential.
