Hey guys, I know I’ve been gone for a while now, I am waiting a while for a comeback, because I want this comeback to be AB-SO-LUTE-LY great. I want to come back with a BANG, but it’s difficult to think of an amazing idea. I’ve been writing a lot of ideas over these past couple months, but none of them seem worthy enough to bring me back. I have acquired some new equipment since my last video. I am officially ready to do audio, with two new mics. I have also gained a lot of visual effects knowledge over my break.
This is actually one of my longest absences from the internet… ever. I’ve been making videos since 2008, and I have always uploaded on one channel or another. See, I’ve had around… 5 or so main channels over the past six years. In order: RUBIXDUDES, BoxOfBoom, CarpetDancers, ASSASSINATORDUDES, and finally, LiamMrK. LiamMrK is most definitely my most successful channel on youtube. I can’t imagine my life without Youtube or my camera.
RUBIXDUDES was a channel I created with my brother back in 2008 (I was 9), which contained a lot of videos that only pertained to Rubik’s Cube enthusiasts. My brother and I attempted to record funny videos on our parent’s 240p camera, which we could only access through the SD slot on our 1990’s printer. My brother and I worked our way up to a little red 480p camcorder after about a year or so, which began the creation of more skits and random funny videos. Then my brother started to attend high school, which is when he stopped wanting to make these silly videos, leaving me in the dust. On occasion I could convince my brother to film a video with me, the best thing those days. After I realized that my brother was out of the game I started to work with other people.
My second channel, BoxOfBoom, which I created with my best friend Tyler in the 3rd grade at the age of 10, was…honestly a step forward. On this channel I had (currently have) 6 videos, which range from stupid skits, a stupid jingle, and a lazer VFX video. This video… my first real work with VFX, it consisted of my friend and I bounce around a screen for 3 minutes pretending to shoot lazers at each other. This video took 4 months to finish up, because the program was not good at saving and I had to work frame by frame. This program was called LightSaberMaker or LSM, which every kid indie filmmaker has used at least once. With this channel, I hit new strides, but then history went and repeated itself and my friend no longer had motivation to create Youtube Videos.
My third channel, CarpetDancers, was about as stupid as its name. The 4 skit videos we posted were… terrible, but funny. I still laugh when I go back and watch them, because honestly they were well scripted. This channel consisted of me and one of my good friends, Allison, who I’ve known my entire life. But naturally, people grow apart and I didn’t hangout enough with Allison to film more videos.
Then there is the project I don’t like to talk about. This project was 8 months I spent writing a script for a webseries that I eventually realize was a direct copy of a few films. I had people on board as characters for this, I even filmed a pilot (still have it somewhere) which came out disastrous. The name of this project is SealSlap: InReality
My last main channel, LiamMrK, is the best channel I’ve ever had, it consists of me and on occasion some of my friends. I don’t depend on anyone, I can go and film an idea by myself, or ask for a few actors for the day, but I don’t have to have a specific person to film with. This freedom, along with my age, is the cause for the advances in my skill, equipment, and software, this allows me to work late at night on my videos. I honestly think more about my channel than people would conclude from watching my videos. In my head my channel has to be perfect, I know it isn’t perfect and probably never will be, but… I feel it has to be. I decided I’m not giving up on this channel, it is the farthest I’ve come and I can continue with amazing results. You can stick around if you want, but hopefully, it’ll be going places.
I will be back soon, don’t worry. I think I’m ready to come back guys. I just need that ONE idea that will be what brings me back. I still film every week, but I don’t post those videos, because they’re not worth putting on the channel. Hopefully you’ll see me in a few weeks guys! See ya later
