    OPForum YouTube Team welcomes you to participate in creating videos in our budding channel
    Ahoy there!!

    For those who still don't know (seriously?? you didn't know?), our forum has a YouTube channel and it is growing in a good phase. However, we want to spice things up a bit and want to see more involvement from the forumers (Yea, such a word exists in Urban Dictionary)

    How can you help us?
    When you start a youtube channel, you need few things, but important things, for it to become a success.
    • Great and/or diverse content
    • Video Editing
    • Graphic designing
    • Decent English communication
    Now, if you see most of the youtubers out there, they either need to learn and do all the above activities themselves OR they need to find friends/acquaintance with similar interests but complementing skill-sets and hopefully pitch the idea, reel them in. This is where we have a great advantage as a community. We have so many good artists who showcase their talent here (Shoutout to @Robin and @sweetjacky for helping us with the thumbnail and kawaii arts), designers and theorists here. We want you to help us spread the word and outreach of our forum and earn a name for our channel in not just anime community of YouTube but in all the aspects we share here.

    We have many ideas planned (and can't wait to start!) and we are very much eager to hear your own suggestions to make the channel content better and diverse.

    Our Ideas/Plans:
    • Videos on other famous/trending animes/manga - short and long
    • Top 5/10 videos
    • News videos - Breaking news on anime, manga
    • ForumTalk - Videos focusing on monthly activities on the forum - namely the contests, new spammers, promising members etc
    What open positions do we have?
    • Video Editor
    • Graphic Designer/Artist
    • Speaker/Presenter
    Do you want to be our Video Editors?
    For those who don't know (hope you die horribly, kappa), @Tony is the resident video editing supremo of our YT channel. However, with the amount of videos we plan to make in the future, we are pretty sure that we will end up in Dutchland prison for making that country's citizen a slave. So, in order to ease up on him and also to release more videos in less time, we are looking, nay, hunting for another one or two video editors.

    Needs:
    • Video Editing knowledge (Duh) and experience if possible
    • Be alright with deadlines (some of our videos need to be released in regular intervals on set day of a week)
    • Well, that's it actually xD

    Do you want to be our Graphic Designers/Artists?

    We don't have a set graphic designer within our team. Tony, @Phantom and many others have/had helped us out so far but we would love to have a designated Designer or Artist in the team - to have our and the artists' own wild ideas brought to life through art and make our channel unique and great.

    Needs:
    • Knowledge on Photoshop, Illustrator and any other tools which helps your art go digital and experience if possible
    • Be alright with deadlines (some of our videos need to be released in regular intervals on set day of a week)
    • Nothing more to say here either xD
    Do you want to be our Speakers/Presenters?
    What would be the basic things to have:
    • Good Internet connection
    • Good microphone or atleast a clear audio (without any lags)
    • Decent camera/webcam - You don't have to buy a HD quality video cam. Just ones which shows the presenter clearly is good (Look at Mapache's webcam quality in OP Chapter review videos - that is the basic level we are expecting)
    • Decent English communication skill
    Now, with all this set, the next step is to find what kinda videos you would like to host.

    What do I mean?
    • Whatever you want to present or talk about - you'd have to do some research on it.
    • You shouldn't give some kind of biased opinion alone.
    • Prepare a rough script and go through it before
    • We don't want to engage in "Click Bait" type videos - we all know how much those type of videos irritates us.
    So, take a sample video of you demonstrating the topic you wanna talk about.
    • Just a 3 - 5 mins video
    • No video editing required
    • You don't even have to fully finish the discussion/theory or whatever video you have in mind
    What we want to get is a pulse of you - Don't worry, we aren't expecting a 5/5 from you :blush: We do know our own team has a lot to improve on. So send out the video - be relaxed, crack few jokes in the video or be serious and on point... Anything is fine... Just be you (unless you are Hitler reborn) ;) We promise, we don't bite :brook:

    Hope to hear enthusiastic responses (else I'll aim these curses at you)! :coffeepal:

    NOTE: To people who respond in the thread and have showed their interest in joining us - we will reach out to you via PM.

    I might do the speaker thing; however, I wouldn't want it on camera. If there's options for interesting videos that don't require me to get on visual, I might be on board.

    Yea, I guess we can make that work, imo. However, there needs to be some sorta visuals in the screen...Either main points of what you are saying or some art...you get what I mean?

    As Wolf said, I've made some art for the YouTube channel previously, and I would love having a fixed spot with the graphics team.

    Wohooo, I got a shoutout!

    So, as for the "Jobs":

    • Video Editor - don't know much about that
    • Graphic Designer/Artist - I'm lazy and I don't always have time so it would be impossible for me to do that regularily
    • Speaker/Presenter - IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME

    Can't do any of those. Welp. I'll still be rooting for you guys.

    Edit: Right, might as well explain like Jackson did:

    • Video Editor - never done it
    • Graphic Designer/Artist - Hahahahah
    • Speaker/Presenter - No webcam, shit quality microphone.

    If anyone's good at video editing and willing to teach/recommend a program I could try editing the videos I do with Dr. Hib

    I would love to help out as a speaker/presenter, however it seems that due to my "brilliant" luck and life, random things happen and I fail to organise stuff like that. However, perhaps it would be possible to arrange something like "guest appearances"? That way, more people could take part at least once and see whether this is something it suits them to do?

    Personally, I do believe that I would be great for the role :P The negative aspect is that I am not able to promise specific hours or days :/

    I am aware of that, was just referring to anyone who could possibly be thinking about taking part, but was not confident about their timetable
