  1. Hi, I'm a Youtube content creator and i hope you will appreciate my insight on how i managed to double my average watch time on my latest video. To give you some background i created my movie review channel to set me apart from others in my niche by adding VFX and other production value you don't normally see in other videos. But then something happened, as the Youtube algorithm is everchanging, youtube started to push channels with more frequent uploads and i adapted. As you know when you up the ante usually the quality suffers. To cut the story short two weeks ago i decided I'll make a dynamically edited video and put a lot more time in it than usual. The result was i doubled the average watch time from 30 - 35 % to 60 %. If you know a little about Youtube you know that youtube pushes videos with longer average watch time a lot more as they can play more ads on them. If i can borrow a quote from the Martian "i edited the shit out of the video" and that made the difference. I know here in the forum are a lot of more proper filmmakers but i would be interested if we have here some filmmakers who post their work on Youtube and what are your experiences with Youtube distributing your content? As my channel is Sci-fi themed it's a Breakdown (10 things/easter eggs you missed) of the latest Star Trek Discovery season 2 trailer, i made an edit with funny inserts, edited in sound effects and tried to make the video fast and snappy to watch. If i made you curious about the video which does so well regarding watch time, here is the link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go_GgaJqOkE Let me know if you have similar experiences with youtube and how you managed to increase your watch time. Thank you for reading my post Tomaž
  2. Hi, Some time ago i made a comedy video where Kylo Ren reacts to the Star Wars The Last Jedi trailer. As you can here for your salfe i had some problems mixing the audio of the trailer and the voice. Do you know some good sound mixing tutuorials as i prepare something new that is in the same direction and i would like to improve my work. Thak you!
  3. Hi, I my last video i did a Star Trek transporter effect. It's pretty basic and i would like to create something like the transporter of the Franklin in Star Trek Beyond in my future videos. I would love to get feedback on my video quality and what would you add. Particulary the lighting is a area i need to work on. My video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4QzdiSrFQU Franklin transporter: http://www.facebook.com/SaucetvAwesome/photos/a.1640382469598402.1073741830.1503065506663433/1640382479598401/?type=3&theater I know there are worlds between my transporter effect and the pro effect from Beyond, but i would like to be able to do it some day. Imagine all the techniques that go in a effect like this. I'm shooting on the GH4 whit the Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens. Thanks for reading Tomaž
  4. Yes the sound :(, i was forced to use the scratch track. I record audio separately but the file got damaged and so i was forced to repair what i could and release the video. I was furious but because i dont want to upload videos with subpar sound but i also promised my youtube subscribers a new video every thursday and if i state something i need to do it or i lose my credibility. So yes thats the sad story of the sound in this video.
  5. Hello, For a review of Fantastic Beasts and where to find them i recreate the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet from Harry Potter. I would love to get your opinion on the effects.
  6. Great idea, i hadn't thought of that! Or i could do it so that it looks like a hologram projection but a little clearer as the Emperor so the viewer can stil see it.
  7. Thanks for the info. I tought it would be named something like: show your work, reals,...:)
  8. Hi everyone, I'm a regular reader and here and there i ask a question about lenses. I didn't find an extra sub forum where you can show your work so i hope it's ok when i post here. I would love to get some feedback from the EosHD community to improve my work. I hope you like the humore in my video. How would you improve on my effects? Everything in the video is done by myself. http://bit.ly/2i9udym Thanks for the feedback in advance! BR Tomaž

    Hi i hope Andy lee is stil a regular here. I'm now on page 19 of these thread and there is a lot writen about the Yashica ML lenses, but the most is about the primes. Im interested if the zoom ML lenses are also good. I can get a Yashica 80-200 mm 1:4 for about 30 €. Is it worth it? BR Tomaž

    Woow so much Feedback so fast :). Thanks all for the effort. @Bioskop.Inc: yes i read about the Kickstarter for the Trioplan 100mm f2.8 @andy lee: The Minolta 28-70mm looks great, but whit a slight filter thread damage, i thin its minor and a filter could steel be screwed on. For 23 € i think its ok and i can offer a lower price
