I had this idea years ago but I finally gave it cause for fruition now that I have a steady girlfriend! Yay for girlfriends who can be dragged into videos! We've been filming this for the past two and half months at a rate of two or three days a week and we've had a boatload of fun filming it. This boatload now sets sail today for you viewers out there in InternetLand. Oh and the song just had to be used. I knew from the moment I first heard it that I had to use it in a video.
I thought I'd be all cute and stuff and create a video as a present for my girlfriend on our first year anniversary! AUDIENCE: WHAT A SHOCKING SURPRISE. It required that I learn how to use GarageBand (which is time consuming but quite fun!) and cutting out a whole buncha paper cut-outs. It took about a month with my increasingly tight schedule but it was totally worth it. It's certainly been an extraordinary year and I couldn't be happier than I am with her. :)
Sweet! I've been trying to get compilations of my YouTube stuff under the moniker PogieJoeTV on our local cable station for months now and I stop into the station this morning and I was informed that they've already been airing it for several weeks now! If you live in the Oberlin area and have cable you can now watch me on Saturdays at 1 PM on Channel 9! Awesome!
I'm trying out a well-known editing software called Adobe Premiere that I'm planning on switching over to and this is my first video produced on it! I really enjoy using it, but it took much longer than usual because I'm still getting used to where everything is and how it functions. Me still likey though.
Hey gang! Not too much to report except that I made this new trailer for my channel. It will now be featured on the front page of my YouTube channel in the Spotlight box as opposed to my latest video and will even making some rounds (hopefully) as an advertisement before some videos thanks to YouTube's new Fan Finder feature! I think it embodies my work pretty well!
In May of 2011 I began releasing my once sporadic and random videos on a new weekly schedule. Ever since then I have very rarely missed a week! Inevitably, this leads to pockets of really solid material...and some weeks of utter doo-doo. Sometimes the stench of them is so off that I abandon them half-way through or simply finish them and never release them...until today.
I present to you three partially-completed episodes with explanations of why they were cut. Upon reflection I have released far worse than some of these, but I strongly agree with my former self for not releasing them at the time. I know the video is a little long but I hope it offers some insight into my learning process. Dig in!
Even though this is my fourth year on YouTube, I still have never made a Halloween special. This is about to change! The video below doesn't explicitly say it takes place on Halloween but it's a horror film and I'm releasing it on Halloween and so, what the hey, it gets a pass. I've never considered myself very good in this genre, only having released a couple horror videos in the past, so it was exciting to try something a bit different and I very much hope it paid off. Yes, it's a little silly but I've always loved the scary movies that seem to have a bit of twisted goofiness about them. Played entirely straight of course.
Enjoy both the new video and your Halloween!
It appears YouTube didn't send out my latest video to my subscribers. It still has a "sending to sub box" icon after 12 hours of being up. :/ I apologize for the inconvenience. You can watch the new video below or right on the YouTube channel!
No interesting story to tell about this week's video. Just another silly comedy sketch from yours truly! Becca supplied the makeup!
The community college I go to gives people the chance to take out their very expensive fancy video camcorders. Well...they were fancy at one point. They kind of still run on tapes. And use Firewire.
But all aging aside, they were still the cream of the crop at one point and allow total control, something I still lack on my limited (albeit still higher-end) camcorder. So even though it was old, it was neat trying something different! I had always wanted to film on these abandoned train tracks that I always pass on the way to school so here was an additional chance to take. Enjoy!
