While I can never achieve the number of views I want for my videos (300 million), I was quite satisfied with this week. Our new video was released on Monday and received some great feedback right away on Facebook. In fact, at the time of writing, between all the links I’ve posted for the video, it has received 22 “likes,” which isn’t too shabby at all, not to mention the numerous positive comments! I was actually surprised that people liked it, because, well, I guess I never really know how people react to it, but it looks like it did pretty well! Another factor that I am quite proud of is the cinematography at the beginning… I’ve never really tried anything that fancy before, so I recurited the help of Tyler Smith to help me achieve something different, and it was a very cool experience. I also learned, from the feedback of another friend, is the “5-second rule,” where a shot should be no longer than 5 seconds or it becomes boring. Why was that the first time I ever heard of that? She was obviously adressing the main scene of the video where I spew out a couple of Pokemon pick up lines, and while I definitely agree with her, part of the joke was also that the scene was dragged out and uncomfortable. But, it’s great advice and will definitely be used for the next video.
So, yes. I am quite proud of this video. The videos are continuing to improve, right? RIGHT!? If you have any questions or comments about the video, please leave them in the comments and I will be happy to answer them! Also, in case you missed the video (you read this entire blog entry without even watching it first?!), please use the handy links below!
Thank you, again, for sticking with me. I promise the next video will not be after another four-month hiatus! EVEN MORE laughs are on the way… STAY TUNED!
