Lost Creativity.....

It have been five days now
I havent been on YouTube, Facebook or Twitter for two days

Now Im about to move off to Tumblr, for some reason it feels more up to date to have a blog there....

My seven dear followers....*need to speak out somewhere*

Hi Blogger,
Havent been here for long time as it was so little interest in this corner of mine. Often I have felt I wanted to go here anyway and just talk if not only to myself. Because I always have so much thoughts in my mind that I need to get out somewhere. Unfortunately lack of proper time to write have prevented me but now I simply decided to take my time

Now I came here to almost delete this blogger but I see that I after all got very few new and rare followers here. If you read this, please let me know in a comment that you really do!
My first YouTube gathering

An experience that idealically need space in its own post. It was fun and interesting partly but mainly I thought it was difficult for many reasons. I found it difficult to find "the right people" to exchange experiences with. YouTubers whoI felt I could make collabs with in the future and who knows how it is with the daily struggle to get views and to develope your channel. I got some rough experiences around as well that made me feel I dont want to go to a gathering again. This feeling remain still after three months

I went to the United States 

Three weeks of amazing impressions and loads of adventures. Here I managed to meet two great YouTubers who I appreciated a lot to meet. People I could make awesome collabs with and whom I felt I got good exchange with. Would love to meet even more but they was prevented to meet up unfortunately. The collab videos will be on my channel first to then be followed by the rest. I have also built up my videoarchive a lot so everything wont be shared emediately but wait to the appropiate moment to share it

The daily struggle work with my YouTube channel

Once back in Europe I had to start waking my channel back to life again. A daily work that is extremely hard and difficult but made with passion and determination. The positive feedback I receive as comments on my videos and my channel is what gives me fuel to keep going. Often I can feel I want to give up as its almost impossible to get views on my videos but then suddenly I get a comment that cheer me up to keep working

Unfortunately Im extremely slow in my nature and actions. Something I do suffer from in many aspects. I want so much more than I can provide. I wanted to bring on the concept of new video every 5th day but constantly get delayed and prevented from doing it. I bet this will be the death of my channel at the very end. Now my next video is on its way but I once again failed to be uploaded the day I wanted. This makes me enormously frustrated!

jealousy and chasing supporters

To promote myself and my videos  is my weakest part in my work. Its dreadful to force people to watch videos and to sell yourself. In such moments I cant help beeing jealous of those who get hundreds of views instantly on upload a video. Often my brain is occupied with thougths on how they do it and "why they and not me" feelings. I try not to let these feelings take over as it prevents me from keep working for my own goals

I have always been very keen to the YouTube community and to support other YouTubers. Lately I have focused even more to find the YouTubers who are in the same boat as myself as I realise that those is the ones who would give the best support just as much as they appreciate my support the most

Missing friends

Sadly many people is very selfish out there who Want but not to Give. I realise more and more who is your real friends and they are extremely few and rare
If you read this text all the way here then you are certainly one of them as you took your time and effort to read all this. Im most grateful to You!

If nobody read this text its fine too, It was still good to speak out somewhere
Oh yeah sorry for the lost images here. I deleted them in a stressed moment without realising they where connected to Blogger. Will see if I can bring them back if there is interest in it

Just  me, Yoz

I made a song but I cant make music...

May is the month of new challenges! I have recently thought of making a new version of my 10 year old one minute simple keyboard song. Suddenly Mystery Guitar Man gave me this opportunity by uploading several videos with him playing every single note on diffrent instrument

He challenge us to make songs out of it and what could be better than making him make this new version of my song. In particular as I cant play instruments at all and I cant read notes!!

But my little song is dear to me and its nice to upgrade it and share it this way. Here is the original that shortly will be followed by the version of Mystery Guitar Man

The image above shows the progress in video editor creating Mystery Guitar Man's version of My Original Song

The Bring Me Trouble Video

This project have as estimated been very complex and timeconsuming. What makes it complicated is the animations of people. I have never been good at drawing people, mostly because I prefer to draw other stuff than people so I never got myself to develope it to the better

It was supposed to include a whole bunch of characters. The idea with the video "Animate Shane Dawson or who, You decide" was a preparation to get the extra characters needed. Although I felt the animation part is way too difficult to do so the final video will end up with only the two main characters

I include the best image I made of the so called "Troublemaker". The woman looks friendly and nice in this apperance but is supposed to make some trouble in the video. The progress in building up these animations is going very very slowly....

This has been a rough learning experience. Its useful in your proffession developement to try undiscovered paths and you get to learn how and where you want to proceed

The channel got its update and the transfer of the logotype from Photoshop to Flash is completed today

Here is the final video as it turned out after all work with it

Busy Busy

Have three videos to produce the next coming up week. Two music videos and one stop motion video. One music video is "Bring Me Trouble" that I need to finish once and for all. The other is a very local film for finish the film production course. Have a lot of future projects coming up and will hopefully put a more clear structure of my channel. Next up is an update of the logotype. I need to swop it from Photoshop to Flash. More development of green screen to do too

The Black Cat

My black cat is a very sensitive animal. Hard to make good videos with her but I like to share videos with her anyway. Much work ahead. Many videos is in plan. I think I have to line them up by now and sort them to keep my creative brain clear and focused on producing them

Reflections on famous YouTubers

After my video "Animate Shane Dawson or who..." I got quite some thoughts about what the heck I was just uploading. First Im not a fan of Shane Dawson and will never be. Second I might be interpreted as wanting to be famous like him which I certainly dont want. And third, I dont feel up feeding attention out of the names of superstars. This Is Not Yoz, who I call me!
Anyway, the video is out and the project is running and I have said to myself Im fullfilling it as I care for the musicians to give them a good video

The video also gave me a very positive surprise. The one who was over all most popular to vote on to be seen as animated was actually me. That gave me a good feeling that my viewers after all have more interest in Yoz rather than celebrities. That gives me an indication as a kind of appreciation towards me who is behind the videos of YOZcreative

Btw, today my teacher in filmproduction gave me two instant visible thumbs up for my video called "Who Am I" the one minute story about myself without showing myself. A perfect assignment for invisible Yoz!

Whats up with Yoz?

I missed to upload a new video last week. Have started an filmproduction course with new assignments and challenges. Some videos nowadays is made for this purpose only. Im considering YouTube versions of those videos if only time will allow me. I will certainly share more about the progress of this course, its very useful even for someone like me who have produced videos for years

My work on YouTube is useful at the course too. Today I introduced all the features of YouTube to a student who was interested to know how it is to have an account and to upload videos. The best part is to meet the fellow students who share the great interest in filmproduction

In paralell to the course I have struggled with the next video. Some technical problems have constantly delayed it. Now it seem to be ready soon. Im really in the uploading mood now. Have lots of messages and feedback to respond when back on YouTube again!
