After 20-30 hours of work, this is a sneak peak on my recruitment project for the Cam/MES. Special thanks to Andrew and Lance for helping me on the day of shooting! If you’re a member of MES/The Cam and you’re curious what this was all about – be sure to get the latest from the General OOC list when the newsletter launches next week (I think it’s next week). This sort of content will be available from me once per quarter.

These scripts go through a number of revisions, but in general I have to try not to be wordy and use run-on sentences with these things, as I’m writing to read these aloud, on camera, and in as little takes as I can manage. This often proves a challenge. One of these days I’ll post production photos to show people what it’s like to shoot them.
Each video I do is around 20-30 hours of work, but it’s a labor of love. If I can touch just ONE person with each video it’s a win. If I can make a difference in ONE domain, that makes it all worth while. As for this piece, it’s really pretty close to my heart as my own home domain is undergoing some of these symptoms. As I was writing this script I actually realized that I’m not doing enough personally to help my own domain retain members. Talk about a revelation!
Fortunately I think my domain is going to be okay and the people who need some time away from game will get that. It just really made me feel like I wasn’t doing enough for my own domain while writing this. I’m dedicating this video to those storytellers and coordinators out there who work the thankless jobs and day in and day out give their domains love, support, and time/energy.
Thank you. You are loved.
Below is the script. As I’m filming in a few hours here, the script is of course subject to change
So I’m writing this lengthy piece (for video) on recruiting for MES domains. I’ll likely upload it to my blog, but if you have found one thing that’s worked REALLY well (not including short skirts and corsets… that’s a duh yall). Also.. I might… be in front of the camera for this one… /facepalms. Anyways, are you in a domain that recruits well? Tell me what worked for you.
So last year I created 4 or 5 videos for the camarilla (now the Mind’s Eye Society) and I had them spread out over several channels. I have several new videos in queue to be created (one of which I’m working on today) and so I thought it prudent to put them all in one place.
Behold - The Mind’s Eye Society YouTube Channel in all of it’s glory. In case you got this note as one of my subscribers, I’m also a LARPer, not just a SWTOR dork, so I apologize if this comes as a surprise.
LARPing – It’s a way to meet chicks, and dress up and drink.
