Pointed Pen Calligraphy 101

I have been working on a series of videos called Pointed Pen Calligraphy 101, and it is aimed for complete beginners. There are five so far, and the topics touched are stuff like how to set the nib in an oblique holder, different kinds of paper, working environment, body and arm position, grip, drills etc. It’s all very informal and chatty and general and I hope you will enjoy watching them. I am still trying to decide what script to actually demo, as there are so many youtube tutorials already on all kinds of scripts, but I don’t want to jump into stuff like flourishing yet. Any ideas?
