I had my first show last weekend and recieved some great help/advise from a few show regulars. I'm looking to adjust my booth set up slightly and was looking for advise from y'all too. I sculpt one off ceramic animals, and I make time lapses of their creation... I'm planning on setting up a flat screen TV and set my time lapses play on a loop (with no audio). That way people can be drawn in by the process and see the finished pieces.
Here's a link to one of my videos: http://betsybowers.com/blog/2012/10/here-come-the-dancing-bears/
After reading up on past discussions - I'm going to make a trip to batteries plus to see what kind of battery hook up I'll need... (I'm planning on running the TV and two or three lights on it).
I'll be at the CraftArt show this weekend, and plan to use this new setup. I'll have blown up images of my sculptures on the walls, the timelapses on the TV, and the sculptures of course, on display.
I'll also have a few signs made saying "original hand sculpted ceramics". I had seceral of people not understanding what my pieces were made from, and actually "flicking them". I even had a few that asked me who I bought my molds from. I was hoping that the signs, and process time lapse would be more informative... Though I realize I'll still hve occasional "flickers" :)
Do any of you use tvs in your booths? pros, cons? Any comments, or suggestions are appreciated.
