I’m jobless. [Party horn sound] Ten years ago I started making Youtube videos for a Hong Kong based retail of air soft guns
called RedWolf airsoft. I didn’t appear in the videos.
I just shot the videos. Oh oh what company is this?
I can’t tell. I mean could you put enough
branding on that video? So that was my first video. I wasn’t in the video. I’m not blonde as you might have figured out. Airsoft Surgeon I must add that he’s not real surgeon. So if you see this guy near a heart attack, don’t call him. You’d be dead. As really there I found my passion for making videos it’s just i didn’t have a passion for airsoft guns. But then seven years ago DigitalRev happened. What actually happened was, I applied for roll of editor. Blanked the interview, went to the interview. Told them my interest was actually in making videos and that the future is not about overly commercial content. It is about creating unique, entertaining content.
And for some reason it worked. You see life is all about taking opportunities. Getting your foot in the door. But sometimes it’s about jamming your bloody foot
in the door and creating opportunities for yourself. But anyway, those early videos…
They were challenging,
they were fun, they were exciting. It was mainly me shooting myself,
editing them myself, everything myself. Just me and myself… …and I. Anyway fast forward today. The last video I shot for DigitalRev TV
was a Canon 5D Mark 4 review. Which I went Hong Kong to shoot part of.
It was a holiday. And it was great filming with the guys.
And especially my bro from another mo, Lok. Good times Lok Hey The decision was just made yesterday. There were no fights.
No fistycuffs over cold cuts of meat. In fact I like a bit of prosciutto. But I wish DR well. I mean they gave me a platform
for me to perform, to create stuff. And now carry on creating stuff.
Albeit without me, with their current team. And I’ll carry on creating stuff by myself.
And I’d like to thank DR for giving me that chance. And everyone, everybody that I worked with:
it has been a pleasure! Anyways… Seven years on and things aren’t different.
And I’ve got a new challenge ahead. And I’ve got a desire to make it work. To create.
To do fun things. Just like ten years ago.
Just like seven years ago. I start from scratch. From the beginning.
But this time with a new channel. This channel. But making living out of it? Funding?
None existing at the minute. Will I have to do things for money? Yes. Within reason.
We’ll see. Anyway, let’s focus
on getting the content out first. I am to get one feature out every week.
Maybe some bite size content. In between that would love to do
some tech videos. Would love to know you know your thoughts also.
After all it’s all about the community. For me photography is not just the act
of taking the photo. It’s about the lead-up,
the preparation, the journey… The fun and enjoyment of all.
The photo is just the end result. Today I’m on the first step of a new journey
and I’m gonna share that fun goodness with you.
