Frustrating Video Experience and the Most Important Thing About Bunya Pine

I planned to make a process video today about my sketchbook page where I draw and paint scales from Bunya Pine (Araucaria bidwillii). It did not go well. Here is a list of mistakes I made: filmed at a wonky angle; filmed at wrong orientation; did timelapse instead of video; did a video instead of time-lapse; forgot to turn on filming; cursed during filming; bad framing; shaky table/camera set-up; lost my train of thought when writing text, and the list goes on and on... 

A couple of stills though will tell you the most important thing there is to know about all of the above: the scales of the bunya pine cone are enormous and magnificently textured. I hope to see a whole pinecone one day.
