This was really hard for me to come up with an idea to make this video entertaining, I thought maybe I can have Robot AC 21 say stuff while watching me paint. I mean who likes watching someone paint, it’s like watching paint dry. I have a book of proverbs so I figured I could have Robot AC 21 say these proverbs. Well that sounds good and all but how about I make him say some crazy stuff after the proverb. Like if he doesn’t understand the proverb or he just goes off tangents.
Another thing about this video is the editing. I thought what if I was painting and the editor keep making me loop over and over again. What would I do.
I’ve decided to make Robot AC 21 a permanent character on my channel. I was thinking what’s the best way to make a video fun to watch. Having some kind of commentary going on. But then what about showing how to do things? I would need to talk and having a commentary will interfere with that. So that gave me the idea. Why not have two videos. One video will be about how I fix things and another video with commentary by Robot AC 21. This is great because I like putting crazy things in my video and that could be the commentary video and leave the serious stuff on the original video. This also allows me to have more content on my channel. win win. I hope this works. Ah screw it, I’m going to make it work.
One of my longest videos ever. It was supposed to be a small project but it grew. It just keep escalating. It was like hey I’m late for work I should take my car. Oh look, my car is on fire, I should take the bus. Oh look, the bus is filled with pee. I should run to work. Oh look, I’m being arrested for setting my car on fire. Heheh, well maybe not like that but you get my gest. I wanted to add everything to one video but it would have been 2 hours long so that’s when I split it up and took out a lot of stuff. I wanted to add funny to this but I was too tired to think of anything. I think I added some proverbs in one of these videos.
So the original video of this was so boring I keep thinking how could I make it better. I started to think what if my video editing software was alive, what would it think? That’s where I came up with Robot AC 21. He could make comments about how dumb my videos are or the mistakes I make. I can criticize myself pretty harshly so I thought this would be perfect for a robot. He’s also going to be arrogant but never ever able to back himself up. Basically he’s all talk.
This is probably one of the most boring videos I ever made. I tried to add jokes but it didn’t work. I really didn’t plan anything for this. I was printing stuff up and ran out of ink. I was like, “Maybe I should record changing out ink and post it to youtube.” That’s pretty much the only reason why I did this video. Sorry about this, so sorry.
My HP mother board died. I didn’t want to film installing a new one because I was kind of frustrated but I did anyway. I was so glad I did because now I could tell the story of what happened to my HP motherboard. I was thinking how could I tell it so it’s a bit entertaining? Yup, you guessed it. Sock puppets!!! I think from now on when I have a long story to tell I’m going to bring these guys out to tell it for me. A few problems I ran into. The audio and making it funny. My camera was having a hard time picking up the audio. So what I had to do was use my cell phone. I downloaded an app to record audio and put the cell phone next to me and hit record. Later on I took the audio and synced it up with my video. It worked pretty well. Making it funny, well you should watch the video to find out how I did that.
I was reading online on measuring how high your ceiling is. I read a post where somebody mentioned that you should use a string and a wet tissue. I was like, “I have to do that.” That’s where the idea for the video spawned from. I wanted to show how not to do it, than show the right way. It would help stick the idea in your head better. During the shooting of this video I made a mess on my ceiling with all that wet tissue. It looked like somebody shot their diarrhea up there.
I was thinking what tip could I give a person about screws and nails and the idea came to me why not just show a nail vs the screw. Show the biggest advantages and disadvantages. Then I though I could pretend they are in a boxing ring and announce them as so. When I watched the video it didn’t look or sound right. So I add some echo effects, cheering and other sounds. I wanted to add a strobe light but my computer couldn’t render it. Computes what good are they for if they can’t be your slave.
This video I wanted to make it more interesting and play with some effects. The idea I had was to make myself teleport around the room when trying to get to my door. I thought it would be funny to keep missing my goal and wind up in different places. The comedy seems kind of forced but who cares, I’m not a professional comedian.
So I tried to prank my brother by having my nerf gun shoot him when he opens the door. I did this at the last minute and did not plan. This is why I failed. The setup was really bad and the nerf gun would not fire unless you push the door really hard. But it’s still a little fun to watch it fail.
