Thank you, Steve…. and the same sentiments are returned. I’ve really enjoyed and appreciated
getting to know you; you are a big inspiration (to everyone).
Merry Christmas….and onward and upward.

BTW…. I’m working on an audio book project and trying to figure out the best way to put a MENU
on screen that can let the visitor succinctly access any of a hundred or more ‘chapters’. They are MP3 files. Any ideas?



Steven Washer December 24, 2015 at 12:18 pm

Thank you, Mel! Let’s make it a great year.

I think this may help you with the audio project:

Hello Steve

I really want to thank you for all the work you do and to let you know how much you are appreciated. You gave us a scare with your surgery this year but you seem to be good as new. Just so you know, I watched all three video camera videos and learned some valuable information so thank you for the effort. Really hope you enjoy this special time of year with your family and friends. Little Stevie must be so excited. I am actually enjoying my own little “quite before the storm” moment right now.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!



Steve December 24, 2015 at 2:32 pm

Thanks so much, Lucien. Glad to know they accounted for something! And thank you for your kind words.
We’re all excited about tomorrow morning. Gotta go and help Santa now. ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Sometimes when we go through a life or health event like you went through it makes us appreciate everyday we wake up. Enjoy the day with your family and friends and thank you for the effort you put into brainyvideo it is much appreciated.

Hi Steve,

First, thank you for your generosity of spirit, time and resources that you share with us. I have learned so much from you and your last series of videos were fantastic!

I also want to let you know that of all the ‘video gurus’ i have watched and am aware of, your style of authentic, relaxed and inviting style of delivery is a total inspiration to me. When I think about being in front of the camera, which I have been practicing, I want to come across with the same easy, relaxed energy and authority.

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful and joyful Christmas!

Warmest regards,



Steve December 24, 2015 at 2:34 pm

Thanks so much, Paul! Just keep being your best self and it can’t help but project outward.
Happy holidays!


Steve December 24, 2015 at 2:37 pm

Thank you, Ray. It’s just that kind of support that earlier this year helped so much.


Allison Rapp December 24, 2015 at 2:02 pm

I know I don’t do enough with video, but what I do get done is better than I could possibly have done it without you and your incessant quest to help us bring good work to our clients. The example you give is really incredible and I am very grateful to have found you… it’s been so long now that I can’t even remember how that happened, but I know it was one of the Best Days!

I hope you and Barbara have a wonderful holiday with your family and I wish you blessings beyond measure in the New Year.


Steve December 24, 2015 at 2:40 pm

Thank you, too, Allison. Your work with somatic practitioners opened my eyes big time. Happy, happy holidays…


Lucas Selbach December 24, 2015 at 2:30 pm

Dear Steve,
I must thank you for all your help and kind patience in every moment of interaction.
Hope you and all of your family have a joyful and happy holiday together.
Merry Christmas!
Lucas Selbach


Steve December 24, 2015 at 2:40 pm

Right back at you, my friend. See you in ’16!


Stephen Byrne December 24, 2015 at 3:56 pm

Hello Steve,
Thank you – the videos were excellent. I also appreciated the suggestion that, from an important point of view, a good camcorder is better than a DSLR.
I hope you and yours have a very happy Christmas and that 2016 brings you wonderful things.


Michael Goodrich December 24, 2015 at 4:47 pm

Thanks for the series and the year of great stuff! Happy Holidays to you and yours!!

Greetings from the land ‘Down Under’ (Australia).

Sooooo glad to ‘hear’ you have your voice back (and not just the physical voice). You were missed and had me (and I’m sure many others) concerned because you add so much value in a world that often seems hell bent on just gouging dollars.

Thank you for your recent 3 part video camera series. As a video maker myself for many years I know the planning and work that goes into something as seemingly ‘simple’ as that series (I laugh as I type the word ‘simple’).

Wishing you (and the child bride Barbara?) a wonderful festive season and I look forward to whatever 2016 brings for us all.

In the meantime enjoy some quality time with your loved ones and know that you are loved ๐Ÿ™‚




Steven Washer December 26, 2015 at 10:39 am

Thanks so much, Paul. My “child bride” got a big kick out of your comment as well. ๐Ÿ™‚


Eddie Oxedine December 24, 2015 at 9:28 pm

Thank you. And you have a blessed new year.


Violet December 24, 2015 at 10:55 pm

Hi Steve –

Yes, I liked and learned LOTS from your recent three videos (and I was marvelling at how much time and effort it was clear that you had put into them!) Thanks so much for that big gift. ๐Ÿ™‚

I very much appreciate the authenticity, patience and above all KINDNESS that always shines through in all that you offer and do.

May 2016 be MUCH smoother sailing for you, health wise, than 2015 was. And may 2016 in fact be FULL of goodness, happiness, and richness of all kinds for you and yours.

Merry Christmas –


Michael Yardney December 25, 2015 at 2:13 am

It’s great to see you back to your old self, clearly you had some challenges this year, so wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas & a healthy,happy and prosperous New Year


Asa Hershoff December 25, 2015 at 12:18 pm

Steve, you are a first class mench….


Sheryl Kurland December 25, 2015 at 1:39 pm

Hi Steve,
Wishing you a happy holiday and healthy new year, too. Thank you for all the great information you share, simply, genuinely, and humorously. I know this year has been challenging for you and it’s good to see you looking good. Cheers to 2016!


Nancy December 25, 2015 at 11:09 pm

Hi Steve,
Nice to see you in your home setting. You portray that always in your voice, but it was additionally relaxing to visit with you at home. That just couldn’t have been green screen…right? Thank you for the gift you gave us all with those three videos. Into the New Year with renewed health and great thankfulness.


Steven Washer December 26, 2015 at 10:36 am

Yes, that’s the real family room. ๐Ÿ™‚


Steven Washer December 26, 2015 at 10:43 am

Thanks ever so much, folks. You’ve made my holiday extra special with your generous and heart-felt comments.

Let’s make 2016 an unexpectedly amazingly happy year!


Ian M Butterfield December 27, 2015 at 9:30 am

Hope you and you family had a great Christmas. Thank you for all you do with equipping people to create better videos. I hope you have a fantastic (and profitable) 2016!


Wendy Woodworth December 27, 2015 at 11:14 am

Merry Merry Christmas, Steve! And may your New Year be Bright and Prosperous!


Michelle December 27, 2015 at 12:58 pm

You’re the best, Steve. Like many others I aspire to be as natural yet articulate as you are in front of a camera. Thank you for the camera videos gift! I’ll finish watching them soon. And speaking of cameras, which did you use to record this video? Hope Christmas was merry and now, Happy New Year!


Steven Washer December 27, 2015 at 10:39 pm

Thank you, Michelle! I used the iPhone 6S for this video, though because it was the front-facing camera, it would have looked the same on the 5 or even the 4S. ๐Ÿ™‚


Susan December 29, 2015 at 2:01 pm

Happy holidays to you too. You have been quite a gift in my life and my peeps. My videos just keep getting better although I must admit I have started coveting some of the ‘better’ video cameras. The images make my videos look flat.

May 2016 be absolutely AWESOME!!

Sending a big hug and lots of gratitude,
