vlogs. builds. life. by moserbmw

Hi guys, I'm gonna keep this short because I know this is not what the forum is really about but as enthusiasts and what i aspire to be, I hope we can help each other. I recently started a youtube channel that will have a very professional feel towards it, uploading 3 videos a week to start. The channel will include vlogs, builds of my car, and other enthusiast things (meets, maintenance, reviews). Enough of me babbling, hopefully the content can speak for itself.

Heres the link: youtube channel

I will be posting the most recent video from the week here:
brake rust DIY

and I will bump the thread every time I upload.

If any of you would enjoy to follow me through my build and journey i'd really appreciate it. Sorry in advance if this is kind of a spamming post but I thought maybe some of you car guys could enjoy it.
-Luke

Just a little tip: using no capital letters in your titles does not give the profession feel you're striving for. Good luck with your channel! It's not easy!

Hi,
Its a good start to any Youtube channel. You got it started at least! Here is what I think a good successful Youtube Channels have:

1. They have a script. Script is important because:
-So that you don't blabber on an on...it will also make you sound lot smarter on videos.
-It will discipline you to keep it simple (otherwise you will be writing long scripts).
-It will organize your video to tell a story.
-When you are editing, you have a reference (this will make you a better editor).

2. Use the best video audio equipment they can afford.

3. Staging (thinking about staging will help de-clutter your background and will focus on you where your personality will shine.

4. Good editing.

I hope this is not an unwanted advice but I watch a lot of good Youtube channels and wanted to encourage you. Good luck.

I actually enjoy no capital letters in my title, I'm doing it for sort of an artsy approach, but I appreciate the words!

First thank you for all the tips. I enjoy the script idea. Right now its hard to do the vlogging part of the video that I want to incorporate because the camera I'm using (t5) doesn't have a video autofocus option, but I plan on getting a canon 70D as soon as possible to fix that problem. As for most of the panning shots trust me I know that they are shaky and that will be addressed too with a proper tripod and slider. Editing as of right now is limited until I get final cut pro 10 to really be able to actually edit, right now with iMovie pretty much the only think available is syncing up music with the clips etc etc.

Honestly I really do appreciate the tips, you could've been like others.

I know I should've waited until I had everything I need to make really proper and professional videos before starting but I wanted to at least be able to get a small audience possibly before all of that.

Yeah, I know you were trying to be artsy but I'm telling you it doesn't work. If you want to be artsy or cutesy it's fine, but then don't say it's professional.

Thanks for the recommendations. I like your videos. Don't think I'm gonna change my titles though

Bump, video on the New York International Auto Show is up now. Edited with final cut pro 10, I hope you guys enjoy.

Im working to make each video better than the last and if you have *friendly* constructive criticism i'll be happy to hear it. Some things im already aware of is the stability issues on some clips.

Thanks for sharing, I have some feedback about your videos. Definitely echoing the "scripts" feedback and potentially storyboarding in advance to make sure the flow is cohesive and that time is appropriately allocated. Your newest video for example is just over five minutes long and has a 90 second intro before a car is highlighted.

The camera work is also frustrating as a viewer. It follows repetitive patterns/camera techniques that became borderline nauseating, specifically an overuse of starting shots out of focus and then focusing. Also the shots virtually all appeared to be zoomed in, I don't think I saw one shot of an entire car in frame throughout the video and car enthusiasts might want to see more than just the headlights or tail lights of a vehicle. This was true when words appeared to be the focal point of a shot like when you had shown "ultimate driving machine", the words were cut out of frame. If your purpose with these shots is to be "artsy", some diversification might ultimately provide greater impact. Camera work appeared to be handheld and shaky, not sure if that was also your intention.

Big improvement over the first few, thanks for sharing cars from the auto show, looked like there were lots of slick vehicles, wish I could've seen the rest of that koenigsegg...

Thanks for the tips, I appreciate it. Unfortunately shooting there is extremely hard so most of the time, especially around the high end cars like the koenigsegg, bugatti, etc, there was such a large group of people that the in close shots were the only ones that would come out without a very scattered background of people. I agree I should have included different types of shots, and i'll work on that. Thanks for watching.
