My YouTube Videos

I will post links to my YouTube channel (Guitar Goomba) videos here. Please let me know what I can do better (everything) and how I can make them better. I have uploaded 10 videos so far, and I think they have improved. They just are not up to what I would like them to be.

Episode 1

Episode 2

I will post more later, but feel free to watch them all and give me constructive criticism.

Thanks in advance to all who offer advice.

Nice job!!! The biggest thing I noticed was that your voice was only on the left side. I'm guessing, if you used a mic that your camera puts it to the left channel. I would pan the left channel center and get rid of the camera's right channel audio.

Also, depending on what program you're using, you could use a denoiser plugin to take out some of that hi end hiss in the audio. It's not terrible, but I think it would make your videos sound quite a bit better if it was fixed. Izotope make RX elements, which is a stripped down version of RX, but I believe it would have what you need. I think it's pretty cheap if you just need it to do a few things. It looks like you can demo it to see if it is worth the cost.

I also wouldn't hate to see some random close ups along the way of of various things, just to break the monotony of a single shot (if you already did this, sorry, I might have missed that part or something)

I hope this helps and keep up the great work!!!

Thank you for the feedback. I use DaVinci Resolve 15 Studio. I really haven't played with Fairlight (the audio editor in Resolve) yet. I use a Sennheiser G3 wireless lav setup which is mono. I will attempt to pan the audio to center on the next video (Episode 11). Episode 10 (uploaded today) was shot with a handheld GoPro 5 Black. I realized after I shot the video that I could have used my DJI Osmo stabilizer instead of just holding it in my hand. I wanted to be able to suction it to the top and side of my sandblasting cabinet. I will look into denoiser plugins for Fairlight. Again, you have my deepest gratitude for your thoughtful response.

Episode 9 I start implementing the suggestions I have gotten here in Episode 11, and improve upon them in episodes 12 and 13.

Thank you! Have you watched up through 13? I could really use some advice on the dialog. I think I sound terrible.

Episode 11
