Barb Makes Things

Custom DIY projects in high speed, every Tuesday.

This is a series of videos showing my process of making a new project every week, using a wide variety of media, including electronics, 3d printing, wood, concrete, shrink plastic, gingerbread, etc.

I make so many things that I decided to try another way of documenting them, mounting a camera over my workbench and playing it all back at high speeds. I use a Sony a5000 mirrorless camera, a series of tripods (including a camera arm I built - and documented), and at least three frosted gooseneck lamps. It's edited in iMovie for starters, then I export and pretty up the audio in Pro Tools. Most of the sounds you hear are from the original sped-up video, but I will occasionally record sweeteners.

Different media are so much fun. Let me know if you have an idea of a project I should try.

I forgot how awesome your videos are.  Then I came back here, watched about ten in a row!  I learned at least one or two great tidbits from each.  So thanks.
