This month I attended an online video portrait workshop, taught by Kat Conte who I had met through The Hive European Blog Conference where we will both be speaking in May. Our task in the workshop was to make a video of max. 5 minutes about our ‘muse’. I didn’t have to think twice – it’s only a step from muse to museum, and as an out and proud museum lover there could only be one muse for me: the National Museum of Scotland (as many of you already know, I was lucky enough to work there from 2004 – 2011, but our love affair goes back almost 30 years!) The result is a video love letter to my most favourite museum in the whole world:

(Disclaimer: When I say “my museum”, this is meant figuratively. It is, of course, not my museum. I don’t own it, nor do I still work there. The video is a personal project, and has no affiliation whatsoever with the National Museum of Scotland)

    Loved the video Jenni! It was nice to know about your muse(um) and a little bit more about you too!
    Have a wonderful week!
