I am hoping to getting back to making YouTube videos after my fiancee and I are married, this May 15th. My future mother-in-law said her present to Jacklyn and I was a digital camcorder, and with Jackie being okay with it I can use it to produce more videos. Previously, I had been using my cell phone's camera to record the videos I have already.

So, which of my current videos do you like and do you have any suggestions as to the type of videos you would like to see?

1. The Risk of owning a parrot

2. Birds, words, & water

Hiya iamnotaparakeet,

I will now be totally honest with you. Because I interpret it as you wish to get some feedback on your current videos to improve your videoskills in the future.
YouTube and videomaking is my special interest. I daily meet people who wants to raise money out of making YouTube videos, I admit Im one of them too.

I can clearly say to you that to get a video popular enough so you can get money for it is EXTREEEEEEMELY difficult!! If you have made videos only with a mobilephone and have no experience of videoediting, then I have to say that your way will be very looooong before you get there. IF you dont happen to catch something extraordinary on tape and your video gets viral out of pure luck... Its the truth of reality, really!
But if you are really into it and want to give it a go with the new digital camcorder, then cool. I would be glad to assist you along the way.

So now some feedback on your provided videos. First of all you have choosen a very specific area, birds. You can surely continue on this theme, but to make a video interesting - no matter what it contain - you would need to learn more in videoskills. Like having a storyline and to edit. The viewer gets bored quite fast if just seeing a bird walking and nothing is happening. Imagine if you have added a voice there, for example talking out of the birds perspective. A videoviewer need constant variation to keep looking!

I choosed the video about three languages as most interesting. Although I had still no idea what you was talking about. Mostly it was interesting to hear your accent and how fluent you managed to be in latin and spanish....

Last but not least. Im glad for you getting married. I wish you the greatest good luck with your wife to be in the future!

I have an idea for a generic review of items, such as movies, books, games and such, called "Parakeet Reviews" where I would review items and if I thought the item I review is strange that I would show an expression of the tiels which looks like a question mark, literally my cockatiel Patricia sometimes makes this expression and says "whurp?" when she is wondering what on earth is going on.

Perhaps people have a problem with the notion of making money from YouTube? Well, I don't make any money for now, since I'd have to have something like an thousand subscribers. And also, the money would come from "advertisement revenue", which is based upon the faulty notion of marketing that people actually give a darn about advertisements, and not based upon sales. I guess people are going to primarily be silent.

Hello, I'm going to respond more properly now that I'm actually awake.

Fairly much so. I would like feedback about my current videos in regards to which people like the most, and why. Also, suggestions as to how to improve or even the types of videos people would like to see. I kinda would like to review stuff, but I suppose that has been done to death. IDK, perhaps I could complain about my time when I had worked for Wal-Mart. I'm good at complaining.

Yeah, I don't have experience video editing, but it appears that there is an, albeit MicroSoft, video editing software already on my computer. I can figure out software packages fairly easily, but I haven't edited videos before.

I suppose not everyone is enthusiastic about birds as I am to try to figure out what they are thinking. Perhaps narration would help with that, though after-the-fact narration, since otherwise the birds may wonder what I'm talking about and stop what they are doing.

Thanks I guess. I'm not really fluent in either, though proficient in Spanish enough to have conversed with coworkers at McDonald's and Burgerking and Aerotek.

Hahahaha! Thats the way to go, lol! Sorry I didnt return yesterday. I have too much in my mind at the moment, really overloaded Aspiebrain,....

Right, I just subscribed to your channel, to be able to give you some support in the future, so you can improve your videoskills. But I got a really weird message when I did that. There was 13?! !! more channels popping up in a list. YouTube asked me if I want to subscribe to all those of yours! What the? I have honestly hard to believe you do have 13 additional channels. Not even I have it. I have only five....!

I guess you are right that you might need someone who is not so much interested in birds. That gives you a distant perspective to it all. But you also have an important point there, that you wanted to record the birds in their natural state and dont talk near them or with them. This I didnt think about at all but good to know how you think when making your videos!

But yeah start exploring the videoediting program you already have. Those programs use to be very basic and hopefully easy understanding with the idea to be an intro for the beginner and to do simple tasks. You are welcome to ask me any time if you have questions around it :)

What? I don't have 13 other channels... it's probably the feature which I entitled "favorite channels". I'll probably need to get rid of that so as to eliminate some confusion.

yeah I thought the exact same. Its the module enabled called "other channels", I just didnt recognise the lists as beeing syncronised. But yeah Im dead tired. Time to give up this day. Dont take it off for me, it was just interesting to see it as everything around YouTube interests me. But keep the list if you want it there :wink:
