Q: How was your experience shooting the video? Had you ever done anything like that before? Did anything funny happen along the way?
A: Shooting the video was a very fun experience overall! I had never done anything like this before, so was a bit nervous, but the production team was so helpful and great to work with. One funny thing I learned is that apparently I cannot concentrate deeply and smile at the same time… one or the other it seems! That must be the scientist in me.
