I picked Olive Video Editor

Each video in this playlist goes over a part of the video editor, and goes over examples and gives you visuals on how to properly use it and how it functions.

I finished the sneak in the lot introductory quiz and got a 100%.

OUTSIDE (CREATIVITY & THE BRAIN)

If my life was a movie I think it would be one of those silent short films that just follow a single person as they do basic tasks throughout the day.

Developing Quality Workflow

What is Workflow?

Work•flow /ˈwərkflō/

“The sequence of industrial, administrative, or other processes through which a piece of work passes from initiation to completion.” – lexico.com

What is a quality workflow?  How do we develop it?  Below are elements of the production cycle that most creative people move through as they create something.  First, we must identify the stages of project production. What is each stage and what are the quality checks for each stage.  Read on and find out!

I think quality can be measured at each stage by how close it is to what it is intended to be at that point. If you’re at the filming process and you don’t have a script, or the script is not at where it is supposed to do the project is currently not something of quality. If any step of the process isn’t finished with the project at where it’s supposed to be then the entire project will suffer in quality.

Shammy

Born: December 3rd, 1995, in the US

I define success as a person being on the path or having reached a goal they have to complete. This could be enjoying life, creating art, forming relationships, anything. As long as you are on that path or have reached that goal, you are successful.

Shammy is successful because he is following his goals and creating artistic content that is enjoyed by a lot of people.

Skills for Success

Shammy had to learn how to properly analyze games, write coherent scripts, professionally edit videos, and just keep up with everything around YouTube

How They Used These Skills

Shammy uses these skills to review video games. He will go through his process of playing the game. After that he will write the script, find the footage he needs and record the audio, then he will edit everything together and make it into a video.

Challenges Overcome

Shammy has had to face a lot of challenges. He had to establish a following, come up with the process to make his videos, which is probably the biggest challenge. He has to go through the game, take the notes, and also deal with the constant updates that the game could be getting, sometimes making waiting a big part of the process.

Significant Work

He is well known for his No Man Sky reviews and especially his review of Paladins and Overwatch, which was the most anticipated video he’s made so far, and also the best example of the downsides to his video making process.
