What’s been happening lately…
Whenever I see a really well made video on YouTube (regardless of its subject matter) it always tends to make me take a step back and reconsider what I’ve been doing online this whole time. I’m not talking about generic viral videos, I mean, very well produced, well thought out, well executed, and well scripted videos. Whether it be an analysis on a topic or piece of media, or a superb short film, it always makes me feel like, my channel is shit.
But for the most part, I cover video games, how in-depth can I really get on that subject matter? So, I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I’m going to relaunch the MattWatchesChalk channel. I have a few ideas and things I want to try out and I think that channel would make the perfect platform.
As far as the main gaming channel, I kind of want to make videos with more substance there as well. So, there’s a few videos I have planned that I’m going to sit back and take a couple of weeks to make. Really in-depth, well-detailed videos.
Of course, right now, finals are right around the corner and that is the absolute priority at the moment, so if you’re wondering why there has been a lack of videos, that’s why. My channel at one point, used to appear to be a possible viable form of primary income, but with the recent changes YouTube has made, that is an impossibility and I need to realize this channel is merely a hobby and something that’s fun to do with my free time. So, if you’re wondering about the recent inconsistency of my uploads, that’s why.
So, in short. Less videos. More detailed videos with longer production times.
Yeah, I still do LPs from time to time, but I’ve also made it really clear how I feel about that format in general and to repeat that point in a post that has gone on for far too long would just be a redundancy at this point. But to be brief, in case you’re new, I think there is some value to those types of videos, but it is incredibly limited and not what I want to be known for making.
Sorry for the rambling, but those were just some thoughts I wanted to get off my chest and put somewhere. And the internet seems as good a place as any to store them.
