Genius Hour

Making Videos


For My Genius Hour I made a video on a game that I played. The reason for this video is to help others that have played this game. I think it might impact others to help them play this game and get better at it.

Total Reflection -

On 1/3/14 I learned more about learning how to make videos and how to commentate or talk while doing gameplay. On  1/17/14 I researched what type of equipment I would need to record my gameplay and what type of tools I would need to edit my videos. On 2/24/14 I had made my youtube account and started doing a little more research on editing tools.

On 3/9/14  I found out a couple of tools to use like Quicktime Player, ScreenFlow, and I-movie. I also practiced with a little bit of videos and posted them but I had no mic that had good quality so there is no sound. I liked experiencing with the tools because they were all different from each other and had different abilities.

I noticed that the tools I used were simple and that they were very good for editing and recording computer videos. I wonder why making videos and editing videos can be so hard but yet also so fun at times. What if I would of used other tools instead of the 3 mentioned earlier? If I would of used different tools my videos would of have came out a little bit differently and if I of used a different computer some of my videos would have better quality.

How might I make my videos more interesting or better with quality? I could get a mic so that I can talk instead of typing because not everything is recorded on a computer. I could also get an Elgato Gaming Capture Card to capture some cool gameplay on xbox for games like Cod or Gta. Is it possible for me to just go big on Youtube? Yes it would be possible but it would take a lot of time and money.

What would it take to become a popular Youtuber? It would take good quality videos, confidence, and a lot of free time to make and edit the videos. What could happen if you got a lot of fans on Youtube? It could make me want to make more videos and talk to more of my fans more often. Does it matter if my videos don't have good quality? Yes, you might have an exciting tag but then the quality isn't above 720 hp or has no mic or you just sound all like static, and your video is just boring. Then people usually just lose interest in the video.

Is it right to use Youtube for the money and the fans? I think it is ok to use youtube for the money and the fans because as long as the people are enjoying the video and wanting more than that means it is a liked entertainment.
