This is just a short introductory video. Frankly speaking, I know that the result is not perfect: it is quite evident that I was not at ease in front of the camera. Moreover, the recording and editing of a simple video took me days and was quite stressful. However, I am very happy to launch the channel. It is the beginning of a new project that is making me rediscover the joy of learning something new from scratch, through a process of trial and error. In my next videos, I will do my best to get better and better results. 🙂
