So I'm in the process of writing a script for my first build on a DIY youtube channel. Will be alot of easier builds until I get a feel for how to do this. Anything you guys like and dislike with youtube build videos? Any general advice for writing tutorials?
My camera is 1080p 60 fps. Just built two sets of LED panels for lighting (I have Several work lights that I used to use for film but the heat will be an issue for some of the things i'm interested in doing). Decent Microphone, for doing audio ontop, but its been a while Since I've used to for this sort of application so will need to test.
I'm looking at starting with simpler electronics builds and extraction chemistry, explaining how these things actually work instead of "Look at the circuit" and "just mix this shit". The idea is to have some personality while being a mix between layman and engineer.
"and then I did this off camera"
I personally have recently made a couple of videos of the process making something.
I've not gone the route of explaining everything I'm doing because I've found, generally speaking, that's very DIY/beginner-centric.
What I've done so far could be considered needing an intermediate level of knowledge and skill.
I think what you need to do from the start is think, do I want to make videos on how to make basic stuff or is it more detailed where the basic skills will have been covered a hundred times over in other videos?
Also, I have Adsense turned off. I don't consider this a viable career like many other charge into thinking they're going to get shit rich. And Adsense pisses me off.
And yes. As mentioned. The amount of times I've watched a video and everything I'm watching is child's play then when something's come up that requires a bit of know how, the video cuts to the finished article and that's it. That fucks me right off.
this, basics: keep your camera steady, use a microphone not the camera shit / fundamentals: focus on the content, keep it interesting
