Video stream idea: Tree updates

I would love to see a video that gave us an update on trees that have been worked on in the streams and showed us how they were doing. Kind of a, “How it started / How’s it going” video.

I’m sure the Mirai crew has more ideas than time for new video content and this may already be one of them. I’ve had this idea before but the Monday’s at Mirai re-sparked the thought.

These wouldn’t even need to be long videos, maybe it’s just a series of short updates. I know some trees we’ve seen frequently over the years, but some we never see again (probably because they’re still recovering or have only had minor work done, nothing that justifies it’s own stream.

Anyway, just a thought.

I agree this would be great. It could be 2-3 minute clips composed of a picture or two from the previous stream along with some video comments by Ryan about the tree’s progress. It could even be shot in the garden to save the time of hauling the tree into the studio. String a bunch of them together as an update once or twice a year.

Perhaps Troy could comment on the trees that did not make it since I seem to recall that Ryan said he preferred to let someone else handle the final work with those trees.

Sorry, I got real work to do, not walking around a bonsai garden talking about BONZAI that didn’t make it :wink:. Let’s face it, it would be a very, very short video if that’s what your interested in seeing. What you really want to see is behind the curtain. But if you’re not with Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, the Tin Woodsman, and Coward Lion, it ain’t gonna happen.
