    Speed up / time lapse? Works for some things. If say doing a bunch of bolts do one at normal speed and then zip zip zip for the rest. Or just cut completely. Concentrate on the stuff that's hard. Most or your viewers should understand the basics. Requires a bunch of editing though.

    Bigclivedotcom just says "one moment please" and comes back with a full schematic or something.

    Very dependent on the tasks of course.

    I would say 15-20 minutes is a good amount of time to get enough watchers for the full video.

    Watched it last night, I think it is good, especially for the first video.

    I agree with a bit of time lapse/speed up for some of the assembly etc.

    Pick your target audience and their skill level and tailor it to them.

    Will watch again

    Yep, I am fluent in kentuck and mizzou, which helps sometimes when you need to explain yourself to the person who owns the vehicle, but doesn't have the slightest idea what you're on about.

    Just watched, good work I thinkg mate.

    Found the presentation style, manner and articulation solid, subject matter, basic workshop shit good, lack of any backgroud mcm music not a detractor. Audio equalisation you found will help. Liked the fast forward showing the work done stuff and for me, the c.20min run time is perfect too.

    All in all, basic format, tips, shooting pretty solid, great start.

    Guessing you haven't progressed this OP? any reason you haven't set the shaft shortening video to public? it might give you some feedback.

    Back to youtube whinging in general the project of my last video was chosen as it was similar to another video I have which did OK. Early days but it isn't collecting the views I had hoped, and no new subs. Might try another few strategic subjects later but the next couple will just be shit I want to make provided it isn't all over youtube already.

    At the rate I'm gaining subs I should be at 1000 in a few months, need to make a few vids for the other channel too, will make them long even though they don't need to be, will be good o get feedback on how long people want to watch the same thing for.

    Only just discovered this thread, will be watching all PF'ers efforts in earnest this week around work.

    Keep at it Xnke! Your threads and builds are full of brilliant information so it would be great to see how it all comes together in real life.

    got 12 videos that are all shot, but only the first one or two edited to my liking-been working a LOT lately and just crashing into bed, so haven't had a rainy day to finish up editing and get them uploaded.

    3-part job on how to shorten an axle featuring the VeeAte Canyon (how to buy, how to shorten the 8.8 from one side, how to upgrade an 8.8 to 9" axle bearings)
    How to rebuild a Weber DGAV/DFAV
    5-part job on building a custom wiring harness (picking connectors/wire/tools, how to measure wire length and prevent knots in the loom, grounding and EMI, heat/abrasion protection, and integration into the vehicle)
    Machining a fuel rail for your manifold/adding fuel injection bungs to a manifold
    Rebuilding a GM 4L80E transmission

    some of the videos are terribad, and need to be re-shot. The gopro's complete lack of a depth of field makes the Weber video mostly useless, and two of the wiring harness videos I am mumbling so badly trying to keep straight what I'm saying and what I'm doing with my hands that they're gonna need to be re-shot.

    Maybe I'll take a week off and *finish* these when the rainy season comes.

    Trying to shoot/edit the perfect video is a pathway to not uploading.

    From my experience, shoot, edit and upload knowing full well that there are some faults but focus change on that next video. With experience and some positive feedback you'll get more comfortable with things and then look back on the early videos and think, geez those early ones are bad.

    With camera gear you'll always want something better, FWIW the streetspeed717 channel is shot entirely on a gopro and whilst he doesn't do anything really technical, with over 700k of subscribers its working for him.

    This thread is big. Thought it was a new one then realised hundreds of posts.

    The magic recipe:

    Canon 80D, rode video mic, sennheiser g3 wireless lapels. A bracket that I 3D print you and a y-cable + lighting and youíre good for up to 2.6m subs.

    Roadsailing watched your fire pit wheel thing. Thatís epic. Too long or general pop to watch but perfect for detail oriented armchair fabricators to smash the comments section over.

    Cool! It's tough if you don't have editing time, half the reason I do mine is to fill in time after the kids have gone to bed and the nopics is watching the voice or whatever dross is on the telly that would be otherwise spent shitposting.

    Just get some stuff out there and keep going, maybe write a rough script for the weber rebuild or add the voicover to the video later?

    Largely agree in that perfect is the enemy of good but you should try to shoot a video "good enough" before editing and edit it good enough before uploading. I always regret thinking I can edit something better instead of reshooting or breaking one of my handful of editing rules. I did one video with my action camera and it was totally unsuitable for the task. It's great for what it is good at though.

    Cheers! don't forget to like share & subscribe it was way more boring before I cut it down so most steps are only shown once instead of four times, most videos with welding in them tend to be boring though IMHO. I like how setting and lighting the fire at the end worked out but most viewers won't last that long.

    I really expected more negative comments on my welding, guess people need to watch a video to comment on it and most trolls need a audience.

    The point about the welding is, even if you're a dumb cunt with merely an $80 Aldi stick welder, you too could make something like that.

    I just realised that I hadn't made that clear, title changed. Thanks, I think!

    Also anyone noticed all the channel banners are fucked up? I thought I moved mine by mistake, but all the channels I've looked at have the same problem.

    There's not been a lot of discussion about the organizational side of creating videos.

    I use Trello for ideas and organizing videos ideas into categories, handling deadlines (need a scheduled upload). It can be used for collaboration down the track if more than one person gets involved.

    I understand Patreon (or the like) is great for generating income with limited subscribers.

    Start creating a social media profile appropriate to the audience, it's no good focusing on snapchat if your target demographic is male 30-40s instead look at Insta & FB.

    Record at the highest res possible (4K) use a flat colour profile that you can use an adjustment layer over the top of later, if using a phone, a lot output a variable frame rate that is a pain to deal with in post (the audio will de-sync on export) I understand FCP can handle VFRs but as an adobe user and not an apple fanboi I'm not sure there. Also if using a phone, use filmic pro to lock down your exposure levels and it can also up the bitrate, shoot flat and do focus pulls etc. Lighting needs to be good with a small sensor size.

    If your computer is bogging down editing 4K, trancode the footage to a less compressed format like gopro cineform, it'll take up more room but will scrub etc like a champ, an alternate (but more complicated solution) is to use lower res proxies.

    As others have said get you audio right, that's either a shotgun and or lav mic/s.

    Learn your editing software, lynda.com tutorials?


    Main thing is to have fun!

    First video isn't bad. Probably worth actually explaining why you run tacks first etc. Experienced guys will know a lot already but the little hints will keep others coming back. I'll definitely be watching your other videos.

    It's not so much the perfection thing, it's that in those videos I feel need to be re-shot, the video just is bad. Bad lighting, can't see shit, or I stumble over so many words you can't understand what I am saying. I could try to voice-over the word stumbles, but when I'm trying to show the difference in a good, well-made crimp on a wiring connector and a shit one, you can't see the crimp at all so it's a moot point. That kinda thing.

    As far as the rest of it, it's just coming down to having time to edit them, I am still learning Corel Videostudio X10. It was in my price range, and said it had all the features I wanted-but one of the big ones is missing and I haven't figured out the titling tool yet.

    As far as the audio-I have an inexpensive lapel wireless mic, and an external mic cable for the gopro. It works reliably, and sounds good, and keeps the audio and video synced up nicely. I think it sounds decent, but I'm half-deaf so take that with a grain.

    As the shop settles into the summer routine, I can babysit things less and take some time to do more editing on the slow days. Had a F1 ford pickup in the shop for a 4BT cummins/4L80E auto swap, using a bespoke frame and 8.8 explorer rear axle today. Even better, he's keeping the tree mold and moss on the exterior.

    It's not easy (well not for me anway) but like anything, you get better at it the more you practice.

    Unless you have something go viral it's really slow going which can be a bit disheartening to begin with.

    Here's one of my recent videos:



    Would appreciate constructive criticism / feedback!


    I use a cheap Nikon DSLR with a 35mm lens and a shotgun mic. I do a voice over afterwards.

    Registering interest. My business partner is interested in doing this at the workshop for cages and various other builds. All we have is a JVC cam, our phones, and he just ordered some motorised mount thing that stablises the camera.

    This learning curve goona be super steep.

    Thanks mate. Clickspring is one of my favourite channels so I do take some inspiration from him. Just wish I had 10% of his skills!
