My First YouTube Video
« on: December 02, 2014, 03:21:23 AM »

Hey all.
So it's been a long process and I have finally done it!

I have created my first YouTube video! Wooo! *shoot a couple of birthday grunts for confetti*

I decided to dip my toes into the water instead doing a cannonball in the deep end by doing an unboxing video of my copy of Destiny Ghost Edition.

I would love for you guys to check it out and get your feedback on it so I can take all constructive critisim and use it to help me with future videos.



Thanks again and please take it easy on me haha. ;D

Great presentation, professional quality and delivery. You should do these more often. If I'd seen this on YouTube, it would've prompted me enough to purchase this edition of the game.

Are you certain this was your first time doing video?  8)

Nice video! I would suggest shortening the intro animation. While it's slick and includes the video title, it does carry on for a bit. If you decide to monetize your videos, people are going to be spending at least five seconds waiting to see your content, and the people who click to skip ads are probably of the "I want to see the content NAO" type of people. I would start it right away with the letters of your name jumping on to the screen and skipping everything before that.

Hey Arbie

Thanks for the feedback. Yep I am def going to that feedback all on board.

I'm actually planning on mixing it up with each video and the intro with having 3 different versions.

1. the animation 10 sec one that you saw. which im going to speed up so its only 4-6 seconds
2. a 2-3 second version of the animation intro ( just the name etc)
3. opens with a cold intro video with me saying " hi this is b1ack sword and this is my review/etc ..." and goes into the short 2-3 second animation before returning back to the video content.

Thanks guys. Im really enjoying this feedback and taking it all on board. Please don't think that I will get offended. Its all creative criticism and I love it. Family members are only going to tell me they love it and not to change a thing haha. I need real feedback :)

You guys ALL rock!
