My Very Long and Very Overdue Q&A Video - Basic Filmmaker Ep 194
Shame on me!
I needed a viewer to remind me that I hadn't done a Q&A video in over four months!
I REALLY like doing these Q&A videos. They're fun to do, allow me to add some humor (well, at least humorous to me), and I usually take the opportunity to offer my opinion on something.
It always reminds me of how many cool people there are out there that support what I am trying to do, and I appreciate it.
Currently, I am working on another new course over at Basic Filmmaker University - these are SO time intensive and involved. OK, maybe they are for me as I'm really picky about the research and what I am saying to make sure it's all legit, and more importantly, that every lecture offers something to the student they can APPLY to their filmmaking.
I am also considering making a video about gaining subscribers.This may sound self-serving, but really, I am not a "see how many subscribers I can get" kind of guy. However, I am a "see how I can attract subscribers who may need and want these types videos and don't know the channel exists" type of guy.
Mainly I want to do a test - if I make a "call to arms" type video, asking all my subscribers and viewers to help me up my subscriber count, would this actually work?
I want to see if this is a viable process for YouTube creators and if so, share it with them on my YouTube course as a successful action, or, a "don't do this" thing.
I haven't quite figured out how to present this without coming off "subscriber" hungry, which I am most definitely not. I've always said that as long as I have ten people interested in making their filmmaking a bit better, I'll keep making these videos.
So it's a bit of a conundrum - how to I do this test without looking like I am hungry for subscribers? Still figuring that one out.
Anyway, thanks for watching, thanks for your support, and we'll talk to you next week when I (hopefully) start my series of reviews on the stabilizer I eluded to in the Q&A video.
