Over the summer, I finally got permission to make a YouTube account, and the experience has been very educational. Although I usually stray from social networking sites, I felt that becoming a YouTuber would improve my filmmaking. Up until that point, the only advice I'd gotten on my videos was from my family. I felt like it was time to face the real world.
So, in August, I set up my first YouTube account featuring my short films. I had no formal training, but I put a lot of work into my videos and wanted some feedback. Unfortunately, as of today, that channel has only 256 views. Pitiful. Still, that experience taught me a lot about supply and demand. As an unknown filmmaker, who was looking up my short films? No one. At that point, I realized that I needed to make videos that people wanted to watch.
So, in November, I started a beauty tutorial account. This time I gave my video a title that would be searched for: How to Dye Your Hair Red Without Bleach. I can't even tell you how nervous I was, because I knew a mass audience would see it. See me. I was also well aware of how cruel people can be through their computers, so I deliberately avoided my account for days after uploading.
I shouldn't have worried. When I eventually gained the courage to sign into my account, I was amazed to see that I had a sizable amount of views! The comments people left were kind and encouraging, and one person even asked for more videos! I couldn't believe it! In a daze, I uploaded a second tutorial, and now have 2,650 views. Sure, it's a tiny amount next to the big-timers, but it's a fair start for a newbie.
All in all, I believe that creating a YouTube account helped me understand the concept of public demand and boosted my confidence. Every time I get a subscriber, my day is made. Of course, there are times when I get discouraged and a silly video goes viral while mine collects dust. But that's life. YouTube, like our society, offers equal opportunity to all, but it's up to you and your creativity to make it big. In other words, joining is free, but you can become a YouTube partner and earn $2-$6 per one thousand views! No wonder NigaHiga doesn't need an actual job.
In the end, although YouTube can be frustrating and intimidating, it can also teach you a lot about life. For this reason, I would recommend the YouTube experience to any person with an interest in filmmaking.
Hi this is a review of the Prototype Rayne Vandall.
First off right out of the box it just looks awesome! It has a old nemesis graphic on top and the new graphic on bottom. The shape is like no else being a non symmetrical topmount freeride board.The second thing I noticed was how light it was! Its like a feather. There are no wheel wells on the board forcing you to run smaller wheels to avoid wheel bite witch is when the wheel touches the board causing you to fall. It is 35.5 inches long and 10 inches at the widest point. It has varying wheelbase options between 28.5-29.5 and last but not least it has Raynes infamous "deep tube concave" holding you to your board while you rip long standies. I would recommend this board to anyone who wants an aggressive topmount.
Guns,Maps and Data That Disturb
New York Time,
The author is talking about what should and shouldn't be posted in a newspaper. He also talks about how some record are public but are rarely used by the public, due to the fact that people don't go snooping through records.
David Carr uses ethos by citing many professionals from college professors to presidents of publishing companies. He also uses pathos by invoking the readers desire for privacy with many topics such as salary and permits for guns.
I believe that so information should be private. But may be available for cretin purposes. Like David Carr said in his article. "If you are having disputes about something with your neighbor and they are threatening you, you should be able to see if they own a gun or not"
In Kevin Pho's opinion piece, "The doctor will see you now -on the internet" from USA today, the author says that people could have a doctor's appointment on the internet but diagnoses can go awry.
Kevin Pho uses logos to support his claim in paragraph when he says, "Accurate diagnoses can be missed without the face-to-face interaction. This means if it's not a real appointment the diagnoses can be wrong.
I agree on this, because people can have an immediately appointment without living his/her house, but I am disagree because your diagnose can be wrong.
The Moment for Action on Guns, by an Editorial found on the NY Times website
This article is conveying the opinion that gun laws in the United States should be enacted in order to prevent future gun-related shootings.
This article uses a combination of pathos and ethos to persuade the audience to support their claim that new gun laws are necessary. The persuasion technique, pathos, is shown when the editorial states, "A month after the slaughter of 20 children and seven adults in Newtown, Conn., Vice President Joseph Biden Jr.’s commission is about to present a series of recommendations for new laws, and it is vital that his panel gets it right and that Congress immediately takes action on its report," because it makes the audience feel sorry for the young lives lost in the shooting and obligated to make a change to prevent another massacre. The editorial also uses ethos by stating, "Two policies were endorsed on Monday by President Obama..." This quotation uses ethos because it makes the audience think that since the president supports gun control, they should too, for the president is a powerful, influential political leader that the nation looks to for advice.
Before I read this article, I believed that some measure of gun control was essential for our society. I believed that shootings such as the one in Newtown, CT could be prevented if necessary procedures were taken. After reading this article, I feel the same way, but I have a better idea of what laws can and probably will be enacted.
In Michael D. Gallagher's opinion piece, "Video Games Don't Cause Children to be Violent", from US NEWS, the author believes that video games do not cause violence in children.
Michael uses ethos to support his claim in paragraph 3 when he says "The state has not produced substantial evidence that … violent video games cause psychological or neurological harm to minors." This is basically saying that the government has not had any conclusive results that video games cause children to be violent.
I agree with Michael. I do not think that video games cause children to be violent, let alone anyone. If video games didn't exist than people would get there violence from other sources, like tv, if that didn't exist it would be literature. Restricting video games isn't the answer. Violence is just a part of humanity.
I really like this photo because of the colors included in it. The aurora itself is green, but it also makes the whole sky look green. It looks like there was a burst of green coming from the sky which makes the photo more interesting. You can also see the mountains in the lower part of the picture which actually makes the photo better. It emphasizes the aurora and shows how big it actually is. Just the picture is incredible because this is definitely not an everyday thing that you would see. It really captures the heart and soul, if you feel me dawg.
