The Office/Studio Hottest Room in the House

My office studio
Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00210

I’ve been at home this week because I have work to do. I worked the weekend and then had to get four videos edited and processed from my trip to New York. I went to YouTube Space New York with my friend Becky and we shot 4 videos. However the videos will be broken down into a total of 8 videos between our sites. We shot a part one and part two to three of the videos and then we switched roles and channels for another toy unboxing video. On one day we used a three camera setup to capture the two of us together and then each of us individually. I think it worked out really well.

the challenge, however is to then sync up each of the soundtracks, decide which one to use and then edit them to reduce noise. We also had to make some aesthetic changes to make the videos look consistent. We had three different cameras and that is a challenge. Editing the video took about 4 hours in the hottest room of the house. Once I was done and the one video was uploaded I was way too sweaty and spent to make a new video to post. Luckily I am re-posting much of my back catalogue of Transformers comic book reviews until this weather breaks. And I also have so many more toy reviews and whatnot to bring you in the coming weeks but I am very happy with how I edited these videos and cannot wait to share them once they have approval form YouTube.

Happy 10th Sweet Suite!

Today was the 10th Sweet Suite. I was there as one of the Toy Insider parents. It was a fun night filled with great toys. But first I had some other things to do.

My friend Becky was able to get us time at YouTube Space NYC. We were able to record there for 4 hours prior to the start of Sweet Suite. Before that we had to grab some food.

Japanese Inspired Tacos

We had lunch at a Japanese inspired taco place called Takumi Taco and the tacos were amazing. I especially liked the nacho chips that they had as well. I loved the roasted corn slaw that they had as a side also. That was inspired.

The Doughnuttery

We picked up some dessert before we went up to YouTube Space NYC. I picked up some tiny donuts from the Doughnuttery. They had this little machine that made and fried the doughnuts. Then it flipped them into a bin. Next they put them in bags and shook them with sugar. They were great for showing at the table at the diner. We were in the diner scene at YouTube Space. Which brings me to …

At YouTube Space NYC

You Tube Space NYC was very cool. We went in and picked up some equipment including the biggest tripod I’ve ever seen, and that was the smallest one. We set up three cameras and proceeded to create 4 videos. There were two for each of our channels. We have to have them approved before they can be seen but they will be coming.

With Cosplayers Getting Coffee

When we got to Sweet Suite we were right up at the front of the line and we got in and were able to see the Cosplayers Getting Coffee group. There were a bunch of them there and the majority were Marvel characters. I did not get nearly enough photos with them either. Becky and I walked all around Sweet Suite for the next five hours and saw so many people and tons of great toys! I will have a ton to unbox in the coming months.
