It’s kind of annoying.
At the same time, I think I know where he gets the idea: video game play through videos on YouTube.
If you haven’t seen these, it’s where people talk and explain what they’re doing while they play a game. Similar to a review of a game, except it’s more like a play-by-play in baseball.
Keep in mind that most of these games take dozens or hundreds of hours to play.
And he does it ALL THE TIME.
Now, I’ve helped others with music, or guest voices on podcasts before, but never done a running vocal commentary before, but I think this is right up his alley.
The problem is I’m not sure where to even start.
I can guess the software is something like what I use for video reviews: ScreenFlow for Mac or Fraps on Windows. Publish it on YouTube.
I’ll have to pass it by him since I’m just thinking out loud, but do any of you brilliant readers have any experience or maybe fans of such videos? I’m looking for either guidance or tutorials on proper ways to set up the experience to make it less painful than a trial and error path?
If possible, send me an email or leave a comment.
