Last Year of Innovations

Hey everybody! It’s a new year and my last year of innovations. I am a Senior now so I have to make the most of what I have left! I’m just glad this wasn’t my only year. Year 1 taught me what it meant to be innovative, and now it’s time to show it. The storybook factory is doing great. In just about three months, we have over 3,500 views on our first video and 22 Subscribers. I’m pretty impressed, and so is my partner. Today we just released Where the Wild Things are in the form of a video book for our channel. We like a bit of variety so we went with a different voice and new sound effects. You can go check it out by clicking the link here!

For those of you who are wondering what I use my time in class for, let me tell you… Believe it or not I actually prefer to record from home and then use class time for promotional purposes (Blogging, twitter, editing, etc). Every now and then I will use our professional equipment that the school provides us. Promoting my project is probably the most important part. Without a following, my YouTube channel would go no where! The past two weeks I have been working on getting more followers on my twitter and reaching out to a lot of different teachers for there input. The responses back were great and very constructive.

We have a lot planned for this year and It all has to do with the Storybook Factory. Our goal is to release a few more classic children’s books and then some new informational books for kids. Our big long term goal is to write our own storybook that we can hopefully have done by the end of the school year. I can say that we are currently working on our own storybook but it’s more of a side project. Our main focus is on converting children’s books into video books.

If you haven’t already, please go check out our YouTube channel and let me know what you think! Your feedback is always appreciated. I would like to blog and maybe even vlog a lot more than usual so that you guys can read more about what I’m working on. Follow me on Twitter for quicker updates. Thanks for reading and have a great day!
