The YouTube bug

Apr 14, 2017 | online publishing

In my previous blog post, I talked about making YouTube videos with my daughter.  Now I think I’ve got the YouTube bug!

Making videos

Karla and I have started a video series on her YouTube channel of playground reviews, which have been a lot of fun for both of us to film.  I’ve also enjoyed editing them together in iMovie on my MacBook Pro.  We’ve got a few more ideas on the drawing board for future videos for her channel, but I’ve also started thinking about my YouTube channel, which has been the family YouTube account since 2009.

I’ve just put together a couple of unboxing videos, featuring my wife’s new iPad, and my new MacBook Pro, to feature on my channel.  Unlike some boring unboxing videos you often find online, I’ve tried to keep mine interesting by keeping them short (2 minutes) and adding music.  Any tedious parts of the unboxings were edited out or sped up.  Still pictures have been inserted to break up the single camera angle of the video.

I didn’t know what I was going to do with the unboxing videos when I shot them, but in the end I’m happy with how the edits turned out.

Check out the videos below, and as YouTubers say, don’t forget to “Like” and “Subscribe”!
