For a long time now I've wanted to be able to juggle. 6 months ago I decided to stop just thinking about juggling and actually go juggle. I'm in no way a master but I've gotten pretty good at it and I'd been trying to think of some way I could connect that to my hobby of making videos when it hit me... what if I juggled GoPros?
I'm setting a goal for myself to upload one regularly scheduled video a month. Ideally I'd upload more than one video a month but making videos is challenging when life is happening, or you run out of ideas, etc, etc. In order to try and get off on the right foot I've scheduled next month's video to be published on on the 14th day of the 14th hour (2:00). Figured I'd play up the 14 part of ShellyG14.
Princesses, sunsets, and dragons (of the bearded variety). Just another weekend.
I remember when I first started my youtube channel. I had naive dreams of instant success and when those dreams didn't pan out I was bummed and stopped uploading for a bit. After some reflection, though I realized there are many definitions of what success looks like and success for me isn't going to be what everyone else defines as success. If I wanted to I could do gear reviews, how to's, and comment on everyone's videos to establish a rapport with the community and then maybe I'd get more views and subscribers but that's not what I want. I want to take the weird ideas that are in my head and release them to the world even if no one else cares. On my channel, I aim to be creative for creativity's sake. Because of my stubbornness and refusal to be conventionally successful, I thought I'd never have more than a handful of subscribers. I know 100 subscribers isn't very many in the grand scheme of things and most of my videos barely have 100 views if that but it's still kind of neat to have this moment. I've been making these videos purely for myself yet there are a 100 people out there who think I'm good enough to subscribe to. It's a weird thought to wrap my head around.
I've started following some photoshop artists on instagram and it's been really inspiring. This photo was based off an image created by @truthbynature. I like to think it captures her inner spirit.
People often underestimate the power of sound effects. Sound effects can make a fight, for example, look really intense or... kinda looney. Here's what happens if you add cartoon sound effects to a sword fight.
I enjoyed the lyric video I made for Charlie Puth's 'The way I Am' that I decided I'd make another one. Here's a sneak peek. I'm hoping to finish it in a couple of weeks but you never know with these things. Never underestimate how time consuming kinetic typography videos are.
Had a blast in New York being the best third wheel ever. If you ever go to NY I recommend seeing Drunk Shakespeare and the Spy Museum. Obviously I couldn't film all of NY but here's some scenic shots I got. All of this was filmed on my Osmo pocket.These clips and more will be available to download in 4k at https://stock.adobe.com/contributor/2....
Recently got back from my trip to New York. Currently working on a video in the meantime, here's a photo from the trip.
