Hi everyone! I survived my first year of college!
I'm now on summer-ish break. I have two summer classes two months in a row sooo overall I really only get about 4-5 weeks of 3ish months off. I also applied at Younkers (a clothing store in the mall) because Nuvia is working there now..figured it would be worth a shot. I'm kinda like eh...if they hire me great, it's more money in my pocket. If they don't I won't be crushed or disappointed lol!
ANYWAYS. Onto what the title suggests!
I'm making big changes to my Main channel and my Daily Vlog channel. As of an hour ago I ended my daily vlogging career. I originally wanted to daily vlog because I wanted to connect with other art students, college student, artists, etc. so they could see they're not alone in the struggle to become a successful artist. But, unfortunately, I'm unable to keep up with the daily factor of daily vlogs. Between no motivation and school shoving everything down my throat, I just couldn't keep up with them about halfway through the semester. I'm only about a month and a half behind instead of 3.5 months like last semester
But it's still turning into a chore more than a hobby for me. So, I decided that it wasn't worth keeping up with if I couldn't keep the vlogs interesting or mention something art-related at least once within the length of a vlog. I'd rather not have a schedule I have to keep up with and make better, more interesting, videos that are about something I love to do that I want to share with everyone else, than to have a schedule and produce less quality and less relatable videos.
So, my plan for my retired daily vlog channel is to still have videos in a vlog-style format, but only vlog when it's something art related. Whenever I'll have an art day with some art friends I might vlog and put it up there, or if a big event is coming up (like the Cello-Bration next Friday!) I'll vlog that, but have it be more montage-y style. Everything I want to upload is going to be ART RELATED. I feel like this is what I wanted all along with my daily vlogs, but just couldn't keep up with all the art stuff with school at the same time. This way I won't be pressured to get a video up every single day, they won't be as rushed or boring, and they'll be about something that might be fun for artists to watch.
Now, my plan for my MAIN channel is to make it overall more art related. Right now I've just been doing the pen pal series (which is technically art related so it's staying, don't worry!), a speedpaint every now and then, and maybe a review/haul video every once in a while. I want to make it more of an ART channel than just a main channel, if that makes any sense. And, AUSTIN actually gave me this idea this morning when I was telling him how I felt about my daily vlog channel. His idea was for me to do vlog-style videos, but it would be more of a process video! I do speedpaints showing you most of the process sped up, but this would be more of a behind-the-scenes video. So the whole first parts of the video will be my process points, and me talking about it briefly. Then at the end I will probably sit there with my finished piece and give sort of an "artist's statement" about the piece itself. I don't have a catchy name for it yet, but suggestions are welcome! (: I probably won't have an intro or outro, maybe just an end slate with all my social media on it. But I definitely want to make it more professional and more serious toward art.
Any other art video ideas for my main channel are welcome!! Please tell me what you would like to see! I know I'm definitely doing the behind-the-scenes videos, speedpaints, and the pen pal series. But other than that, I don't know what else I should do! I only use Windows Movie Maker for my videos, so I can't do anything too fancy with editing. I don't even think I can put a voiceover on a video..xD
Thank you to those of you who watched my daily vlogs, I'll still be editing and uploading the last month and a half's worth of videos, but after that it'll be better art event videos! (:
