'As I’m sure you are aware, the popularity and widespread use of DVDs has declined rapidly over the last few years. Whereas we used to buy or hire DVD movies to watch at home, the rise of streaming services such as Netflix has almost made DVDs head the way of the dinosaurs. It’s amazing how quickly technology changes. In fact, when we released the first two of Susan’s watercolor instruction videos they were on VHS videotape cassettes.' ~ Richard Harrison-Tustain
Exporting your final footage to have it put on DVDs can be tricky, but Richard will walk you through the steps of putting it together. Older audiences may prefer DVDs; something to hold on to and play for a wider audience in courses or workshops, so keeping these in mind is always a good idea.
Then there are streaming services. Of course, we’ve all heard of YouTube and Netflix, but there are other options as far as streaming your content to viewers, customers, and fans, some of which allow you to create an online content menu and chapters for your video work! Richard will show you his preferred streaming site, and as an added bonus, a list of some of the best streaming sites on the internet will be included in the Digital Guide. So you can find your favorite site and have fun!

Richard & Susan Harrison-Tustain
Internationally acclaimed New Zealand watercolor and oil artist, Susan Harrison-Tustain, appeared in Colour In Your Life, season 10. Her passion for painting, for natural beauty and light, allows her viewers to feel part of the world she has captured.
Susan’s choice of subjects and the naturalistic realism of her painting style enable her to capture more than a subject – she wants the viewers of her work to feel the emotion within the painting. Combined with her husband, Richard, as her constant support and videographer, Susan and Richard have a plethora of knowledge to share about creating art and capturing it to share with the world.
