I want to starting making videos.

#24. The next step in my experiments with self-expression

I love writing but it is limited to one medium. Videos incorporate many additional domains: sound, visual, filmography.

That being said, I’m not quite sure what I want to make films about.

For some time I have thought this is the wrong approach; that I should make videos because I feel I have something to write/make a video about. There is certainly truth to this. However, my current lack of knowledge about how to make and share videos inhibits me from acting on any ideas that I have.

Therefore, I am going to experiment by making a number of different types of videos and see what I learn.

My ideas at present are to make:

  • An educational video (on a subject I know about that will benefit others)
  • A comedy video (I personally love ryan higa’s style)
  • A music video
  • A ‘reaction’ video (I will be honest, didn’t entirely get these when I first saw them.. but I often watch TV episodes and I thought it may be fun.)
  • An exploratory/human nature video?
  • A vlog?

Have any other ideas? Let me know in the comments below.

I’ve started working. New videos will arrive here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiujQqyQPZNQf1SAdXtcsnQ
