Usually I tell something about Thursday's video on Wednesday's post. Tomorrow's video will be less than minute long video telling I will take a break from Youtube. I use this post to explain why I will do it. Short answer is I have lost motivation to make weekly videos. I try to get away from videos where I watch camera at home. It is time when those are almost everything I can shoot at the moment. It is cold and dark outside due winter. Too cold to record audio with lavalier microphone and sit on something.
I am still motivated to make videos. Just not every week. I have little to learn from making video every week after over 170 videos. Weekly videos have too little time to try something more ambitious if you need to learn something same time. I am probably good enough shooting videos from technical side. I need to learn more about story telling. Weekly videos come too often to learn that. At least when you have full time day job and make videos as hobby.
I made weekly videos to learn video production and because it was told to give better exposure. Exposure hasn't been too good lately. I haven't been too happy with some videos I have made only to fill weekly quota. I rather make videos I can be proud of than put something there only to have something there every week. Some of my favorite channels seem to do that. Each time they make video I will watch it. Some channels with weekly or daily content start to feel like content dumps.
I have vague idea where to take channel. Channel won't be there for some time. I need to get better to get there. This break is for planning next steps to get there. The break will last until Easter. It might go for longer. I won't go back to weekly videos then just get some kind of plan what to do with the channel. Until that I do other things and try to get motivation back.
