Where’s the Science?! The Jay Dee Show 25

So, you may be wondering what happened last night. I was editing a video, but I was so tired, I went to bed. I didn’t post it! I can’t this morning, because I have to go to work in 30 minutes. But I’ll post it later. Just think, an Authors Answer video on a Sunday. Weird.

So, the main channel had a whopping 1 video, while the science channel had nothing. Why? Well, I explained on Patreon why, but I wasn’t liking the weekly science news format. I’d rather make news videos whenever I can, talking about very current news. The A to Z Challenge is coming at the end of this week, as well, so I need to concentrate on videos for that. So, let’s get on with this week’s one video!

Seems there’s a theme. I talked about why I didn’t have many videos on my main channel. I also talked about my plans. Check it out!

And that’s it! I’ll be posting the Authors Answer video later today, I already have a Star Trek Project video done and ready to edit, and I have to get started on the A to Z Challenge videos for the science channel this week. Lots to do!

I Want to Live in Another World! The Jay Dee Show 24

My video-making continues to be a bit slow, but I’m finding I’m very busy recently, and I have less time to record videos. Plus the fact that with the science videos, editing takes about 2 hours for a short 4 minute video. This includes doing the thumbnails, but doesn’t include searching for images or writing the script. There’s probably about 5 hours of work for a short 4 minute video.

So, here are the past week’s videos. There are 3 of them. I made only 2 for my main channel and 1 for my science channel.

Starting off with my main channel, the first video I posted is my Top 5 Fantasy World video. I talked about the 5 fantasy worlds I love the most.

And then I finally posted my latest Authors Answer video, only 2 weeks late. It’s about writing child and teenage characters.

Moving on to my science channel, since I did a science video last Saturday, there wasn’t one on Monday. So, the only video of the week was the weekly science news video. This one featured some amazing pictures of Pan, Saturn’s small moon, and some political stuff about the EPA.

That’s all for this week! Let me know what you thought of the videos in the comments section below. Over the next week, there should be 2 regular science videos plus a few videos for my main channel I hope to get done, including a Star Trek one, a book review, and Authors Answer. Maybe I’ll finally get back to doing the Japan videos.

A Big Anniversary! The Jay Dee Show 23

Today marks a major anniversary in Japan and for me personally. I had a couple big videos this week, but I only uploaded a total of 3. There’s another I may be able to get up tonight, though.

On my main channel, I only uploaded one video (another coming soon). This video is a continuation of my world building series. This time, it’s about making calendars for sci-fi and fantasy worlds.

And then, moving on to the science channel, I have two new videos, including a science news video and my first video dedicated to a single science topic. The first video is a weekly science news video featuring stories about Hyperloop, Mars, and the white rhino that was killed by poachers.

The second video is a science video about the big earthquake and tsunami in Japan in 2011.

The next week will feature only one science video, though I’ll probably start preparing the April A to Z videos. I’ll also be doing some regular booktube videos.

Which video did you enjoy the most?

Here Comes the Science! The Jay Dee Show 22

I’ve still been pretty busy recently, so not as many videos as I’d like. However, I uploaded 6 videos, 3 for each channel. On my main channel, I was able to do some regular videos, though I missed out on the Authors Answer video due to a very busy day and company being over. My science channel had its first 3 videos, including a science news video.

For the main channel, I started off with a brief wrap up for February and a TBR for March.

I then moved on to the World Building series with a video about how to create the planet.

And then the regular Retro Book Review. This time, it was 2010: Odyssey Two.

Moving on to the science channel, I uploaded a couple introductory videos and the first actual science video. Starting off is the channel trailer.

And then I uploaded a channel introduction video.

And then my weekly science news video. In this one, the background is kind of cheap-looking. I really would like a better quality camera, microphone, and backdrop. It was a pretty brief video, too. But check it out, please!

Over the next week, I should have 3 videos for the science channel and around 3 or 4 for my main channel. And of course, I’d love it if you subscribed to my science channel.

Let me know which videos you enjoyed in the comments section below.

A New Beginning! The Jay Dee Show 21

Things are starting to come together for both of my channels. I only published one video, and it’s a really short one, but I did the largest amount of editing and effects of any videos I’ve done.

For my main channel, I made a new channel trailer! I used Filmora for this one, and I even added an end card using picture in picture for the first time ever. It also has a very bold thumbnail. Check it out!

As for my science channel, I’ve recorded the channel trailer and a channel intro video. They’re different. The channel trailer is less than a minute long, while the channel intro video is a few minutes of me talking about what to expect on the channel.

I’ll be busy again over the next week, but I have a couple days in which I can record a lot of video. I have my first science news video to record (most likely on Wednesday). I’ll have a lot of videos for my main channel, as well. I’m planning on the regular review and Authors Answer videos, as well as the next World Building video. I’m going to do a wrap-up/TBR video, too. I’m hoping to have them all up this week!

Let me know what you thought of the channel trailer in the comments section below.

New Thumbnails! The Jay Dee Show 20

Upgrading! There have been a few changes to the channel. The biggest one you’ll notice is that the thumbnails have completely changed! Second thing is that I’ve started using Filmora, but only for one video so far. And third is a new series about World Building. But there’s more to come this coming week on both channels. That’s right, both channels!

On my main channel, I uploaded 5 videos, all with new thumbnails. They’re bolder and look a lot cleaner, I think.

First up is my latest Star Trek Project video with a review of episode 9, “Dagger of the Mind.” Check it out!

Next up is the first world building video. In this one, I introduce the series.

And the same day, I uploaded episode 1 of the world building series, this one talking about how to choose the star for your new world. I used Filmora to edit this video. It uses an overlay!

Up next is my regular weekly Retro Book Review, now with an all new thumbnail. The review is for The Great Hunt, by Robert Jordan. Loved the book! Check out the review.

And finally, the regular weekly Authors Answer video. And this one is all about different types of publishing.

There was nothing for my science channel, but I have recorded a couple videos that will be up in the next few days. Those are the channel trailers for my main channel and the science channel. As time permits, I’ll be recording an introductory video for the science channel, as well. Due to a busy work schedule, there will be few videos over the next week.

So, what did you think of the new thumbnails? Let me know what you think of them in the comments below. And also let me know which videos you enjoyed.

World Building Now on Video

I’ve started adapting my world building posts for video! I’ll be bringing the information to a whole new audience. For those of you who haven’t read my world building posts yet, you can also watch the videos.

Here’s the introductory video, which I never made a post about:

But the second video, or should I say the first episode, is based on a blog post. You’ll find that the post is more detailed, but the video has the most important points. Check out how to choose a star.

This is also the first series of videos I’m making that uses thumbnails that I hope will be eyecatching. Let me know what you think.
