  1. Thankyou again for your candor Mr slayemin. I'm taking everything you have said on board and even invested in some softwares to make the process of editing easier with a final solution to my sync footage woes (premiere is being a bastard with mp4 capture files due to them being variable rate, this is fixed with a re-render in another application)   The following video has diluted alot from what you said previous and I have extrapolated on that to make another 'tutorial' video - for use funnily enough in audacity, making cool sfx     I think I'm hitting a a kind of rhythm to how I wish to progress with my channel and video style, it just took alot of 'growin pains' to get to this point.
  2. Thanks for your reply   The credibility issue you raise is good - and at odds with my meandering nature of talking oblivious to the message I'm trying to get across. So I just need a little more focus when making the videos really rather than going in 'blase'   The out of sync parts I was kicking myself about - but could not reshoot within a reasonable time due to my own personal time constraints. So I made decision in which I lose polish, but still have the general message out there which I intended... Just a shame my hard drive speed is buggered for some reason regarding this issue. That drive though now has been replaced.   Going into other coding territories would be a diservice to those that know a great deal more than I do regarding say 'unity' or 'c#' so I stayed away from that aspect.   I am glad I'm progressing. And I'm sure I'll start to have the template fixed on how I produce these videos soon because of your input. Your video does have value there - in terms of what you explain and elaborate how your spiral works. But as you said polish and production value. If you put those in with perhaps a fixed script to help smoothen speech and diction. If you were going to have those kind of videos that is?
  3. My assumption is based on the track record of what people generally watch - I'm not being dismissive, but people like bright colours, fun, and some sort of humour to pique their interest, perhaps I need a big opening and settle down from there?. Saying that though I took your input to heart and have made a new video reeling in the memes and the irreveries and focused on a tutorial of sorts in the program I use (clickteam fusion) Not saying I have got ridden of those flourishes alltogether, its just significantly reduced from what it was.   I am indeed aiming for a personal education/personal experience angle to my videos but to have that without entertainment is like going to maths class where the teacher tells you to write what is in the book. Its unengaging, uninspiring and a little soul destroying.   As of now I shall keep tweaking how I progress with the format - but I think your comments have helped strike a balance whereas before it was 'way too much'   At least I think so anyway - this link here is to the new video, please give any criticism you can as I appreciate your input/bluntness  
  4. This is the age we live in now... Will be uploading a new video later tonight or tomorrow with some new changes to the system - Hope its a  little better
  5.   Thankyou RivieraKid. In terms of what you did enjoy, was there anything in particular that stood out as good? also regarding the camera - I have my computer setup to my freelance DSLR camera and the shallowest lens I have currently is 50mm. Not exactly a great setup - but it gets the job done. Sadly I have to sit on the other side of the room for a better fit. But then I'm reading a script from the other side of the room. I'll invest in cheap sigma or some such for xmas.   I guess I enjoyed it because I can empathize with you. Up until 2016 i lived in London and I've wanted to get more time to focus on game development projects. Even though I enjoy my job and I have a great employer I still wish I had the freedom to ditch it and create games. I have finished 1 game and I havent published it, but I think it would end up like your first game on google play. I also think my game is good but I doubt anyone else would.   I also don't have the same viewer history as most so I thought your delivery was funny and different.   On reflection and rewatching I think I agree with all of the points in this thread. Sorry!   Well - they seem apt. I'll do my best to tone done what I can. But I can't say I'll lose all of the weird stuff. I do like irreverantcy... is that a word?   Thankyou anyway!
  6.   Hello Mr slayemin   I appreciate your honesty and forthrightness - I see what you mean regarding the jumpcut nature of the video format. I come from an editing background in media and we are encouraged to treat the audience as dismissive, and thus must throw a barrage of imagery at the viewer to keep their attention span. That combined with a need to please - and I'm sure my insecurities shine through in the form of overindulgence in irreverant ramblings. I am planning on setting up another video soon regarding elements within the software I use and will take what you said on board and restrain from 'overindulgence' as well as getting top the crux of said ramblings sooner rather than later. thanks again     I have no idea who Mr/Mrs Mindwipe is but will surely look into this as I have been away all weekend     Thankyou RivieraKid. In terms of what you did enjoy, was there anything in particular that stood out as good? also regarding the camera - I have my computer setup to my freelance DSLR camera and the shallowest lens I have currently is 50mm.

I'll invest in cheap sigma or some such for xmas.   Agree with this.  Definitely try to get right too it or you'll lose viewers.   As mentioned above - I'll shoot straight to what I'm talking about next time and hopefully will cut out alot of irreverent rambling.   Thanks guys for the critiques!
  7. Hello - my name is Max Murray, I am one of those independant game developers some of you may of been hearing about. I've been making games for android and pc for a little over a year now with some middling results. It's only now I decided to compartmentalize my thoughts into a Youtube series explaining what I'm doing, what games I have gone and done, how good they are (if that). And if I'm successful - some yuks. Here is the first in the series     and its follow up here   So what I am asking you guys is if this series is any good? I have seen alot of youtubers in my time and if theres one thing I don't want to do is emulate the hyperbolic happy tubers who seem like they're on valium and crack. I'm hoping if anything to get some sort feedback on my games as well document my own path developing games getting (hopefully) better and better. anyways - I hope you do enjoy the video. And if you are interested in anything I say or the look of what I make, please let me know!   Newest Video with changes suggested by this Forum!
