This is a great question. There are several things to consider when making a decision to have a 24 minute story based art documentary made about you and your art and distributed to millions on TV stations around the world and online?
1.What is your purpose? What is the goal of investing in your art business?
If your purpose is to have a documentary about you leave as a legacy, to show your grandchildren or to be in our archive of the minds of artists then you may be ready now.
If your purpose is to make sales and grow your art business then there are several things you need to consider.
2. Are you a great artist?
Colour in Your life artists are generally of a high calibre. Many have been painting for more than 20 years and have exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions. They have won awards and sold many paintings. They are practicing committed artists who may already have a strong reputation. They have developed their art practice to a level where they no longer feel or look like an amateur.
3. Have you developed techniques to share?
Colour in Your Life artists have specialized techniques they are happy to share. They are already good teachers and have developed these techniques over many years.
4. Are you committed to marketing your art?
The most successful of these are those artists who have already committed to the marketing side of their art business. They have a great website with a shop and already have a following on Instagram and Facebook with an email database that they can use to share the show.
5. Do you know what to promote on the show?
You will also want to consider what you want to promote in the show. Do you want to promote your workshops, your painting tours, your commissions, your pet portraits, your products or your art work in general?
6. Is your website ready?
You will want to ensure that your website is ready to go and accept buyers from all over the world at any time. We can’t tell you when you show will be aired on the TV stations in over 50 countries. It could be this year or it could be 3 years’ time. You need to have the website that is attached to the web address you promote in the show ready to go to support you making sales. To support you achieving your goals.
7. Have you art to sell?
You may also want to ensure that you have artwork ready to sell or workshops ready to fill. It will be a missed opportunity if you begin to get keen buyers and there is nothing to buy, or keen workshop participants and you have not got a workshop ready for them to join.

‘Wow! Fabulous job with my show. Best production/interview I have ever had! Five stars. You guys are real pros and I can’t say enough good things about Sophia Stacey. Take it from me – of all the professional video interviews I have had the good fortune to be a part of, this is the top, hands down. Well worth the small investment for an outstanding result like this. Love from Ann, also. You are welcome back here anytime!’
