My Camera: Cannon G20
In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is discussing how he makes his YouTube videos. He doesn't have a team but produces a ton of content. To produce this much, he has developed strategies and systems for production.

Every video starts with a journal. Everything is scripted although Alpha goes off-script. He writes it like he films it. He used to deliver a static message in the same place. However, after researching, he found out that moving in the screen holds attention better. Therefore, the writes his script in small little blocks.

Alpha displays his gray foam box. He has a mini wardrobe off to the side for video filming. He also shows the wall that he uses as the background. Two lights casts a bright effect as well as other day light bulb lights clamped around him. Soft box with a yellow light bulb (Super Flood) is in the corner to soften the whole look. He also used foam insulation to create a muffled environment. He also has a stool to place his script.

The way that he films is 'weird' but makes editing easier. He reads each blurb one by one and films in tiny clips. He uses a remote to stop filming if he gets it wrong. He moves between each one. Average time filming is 25 minutes with 45 minutes of editing. He uses Power Director. His video quality has gotten better. It's been trial and error.

If you want to start a YouTube channel, you life could be changed like Alpha. He has derived so much joy, satisfaction, love, and passion from making these videos. He loves the interaction and how engaging the process is. It's so important to him, and he feels incredibly lucky doing this. It's incredibly fun, and when starting out, you will get better. You won't be comfortable for awhile- Alpha is still trying to master his craft.
