How To Become a Youtuber
I was not into cinematography in 2015, I didn`t even know what that word meant. I edited my videos on iMovie and recording in 480p or 720p was considered OK. This is a long time ago!
Stuff that is obvious today wasn`t always obvious. In the video below I wanted to avoid doing the post-production work, namely editing. So what I did to accomplish this was to try and do everything "perfect" on the first try. Well to be honest I didn`t actually accomplish it.....
The end result is a video with lots of unnecessary pauses in speech and action.
First Try on Vlog
November 2015: I decided that I wanted to create a mini series of videos that I paid more attention to. I decided that this was going to be my "high end" videos. Videos I had really worked on getting good.
The idea was: Vlog over a period of 1 month. Use different camera angles than I usually had done. Add sound effects.
The end result was YBP (Young Business Person) - which was a 3-part mini series of me building my company.
My videos up until this point in time had been outside of the vlog genre.
Easing the Cringe Level
In 2016 I had acquired a Canon G7X, a huge improvement from my GoPro Hero4. Week by week I felt more comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
After my practice from the YBP series, and a lot of trying and failing on everything from editing to video angles; stuff were going better. Each video was a little better than the previous one.
I still used iMovie for editing. I found it in retrospect to be a great platform to learn and grow on.
By late 2015 I felt ready to create a feature film, a documentary. The documentary was done in Norwegian language, mostly. I spent approximately 6 months creating it. It was published in March the 16th of 2016.
The documentary was about the financial crisis of 2008, how it has impacted the world and how it keeps on impacting the world to this very day.
I basically used EVERY opportunity I had to film. If my friends wanted to do something I was in, as long as I could simultaneously record them.
