I make a living by making websites, but am learning the trade of filmmaking.
Thanks for posting!
1. Start with better video titles when you upload. I don't want to see your filename in the title.
2. Spend time to make a better Youtube homepage. I didn't realize you had more than 4 videos when I first went there.
3. So why do you have a twitter? Who's in charge of it? What tags do you use and what schedule do you have? Marketing is work... not just twitting out occasionally.
4. Once you feel in a good place with your work, try kickstarter for an episode. Nothing big. Something that can be successful. View it as a learning experience, marketing, and deliver what you promise. Don't go crazy asking or promising too much.
5. I haven't watched the videos, but I see a lot of titles dealing with trailers and teasers? Why not group episodes together... do you have episodes or just sample videos?
A facebook link that goes to an amazon link? That's not confusing.
I looked at it, but don't know gear well. I recently did my big purchase to flush out my gear, but it was more around .25" adapters, gaffer tape, markers for my clapper, sun shield for back of my DSLR, pull focus, etc. Don't focus so much on the big stuff you forget about the little things.
I'd say spend less than $500. I'm happy with my Nikon D3300 from craigslist. I think others have it partially correct. For $500, take what you can get. I'd be using my cell phone or point and shoot cameras if I could do a manual focus. But I can't... so I had to get something to let me control the focus. The D3300 is a great starter DSLR. The money I saved on it was invested in microphone, light, sd card, and other gear. As I explained the expense to the wife: If I can't shoot shorts and a feature on this, then there's no point in spending more on gear.
Alright, you posted. I'll bite and try to give you constructive criticism. Keep in mind, I have no work of my own to show... so... there's that.
1. The early couch scene.... SOOO much blank white wall. I get the whole "not there" vibe. But for two creative people, those were baren walls.
2. During the convo, the older and younger gentleman have such different lighting on them, it feels like they're not even in the same room.
But overall... good work.
Well... I was expecting to see ideas on how to make a video about someone that is literally invisible. Like fishing line, CGI, etc. Still good to listen/watch.
