I started my own Youtube channel today! I watch vlogs from time to time and do enjoy them, but never really considered having my own Youtube channel. The primary road block is the fact that I do not own a camera. I have a basic Android phone with an okay-ish camera, which is definitely not enough for the kind of videos I want to shoot. But videos, as a communication channel, have always intrigued me. I enjoy movies, I love movie making even more. Recently, I find myself being more interested in visually communicating my thoughts and what better medium than Youtube.
At this point I am not really sure what I want to do with the Youtube account. I don’t see myself buying a good camera anytime soon. But I have been reading more and more about book trailers these days – which are cool videos for book releases. I am planning to do a trial with my upcoming book, How I tamed the dragon named fear. So if nothing, I can use my Youtube channel as a extension of my author platform. Nothing is decided yet, and only time will tell.
For today, let me share with you guys a 30-second video that I just published on Youtube. We had a kite flying session today at office to celebrate Makar Sankrati. The video was taken with my phone. It’s obviously not a great video, but it’s a start. That’s all I am focusing on right now.
Wish me luck!
