My name is Michael I am 19 and live in the Berkshire town of Reading. I grew up with my brother Ben who has always had a passion for making films, he even did it for A level. I started making videos when I was about 12 and my brother let me use his Version of Adobe Premier elements, which at the time was very bewildering and I just made small home movies of holidays and things. But my real Love of the hobby hit off was when I was in the Scouts and went on one of their camps, I took a small compact camera and took loads of photos and a few videos, after I got back off the camp I decided to make it into a short movie with Windows Movie Maker. After I had finished this I showed my fellow peers it and even my leader they all enjoyed it so my hobby was born.
After that my clients just got better and better with clients like John Lewis. They got chosen to do some gardening at my Scout boathouse and I was invited so as I always do I took a video camera and a tripod and a few small compact cameras and decide to make a short video using my brothers Adobe (but getting better at it). When I was done I sent it in to the manager who overlooked the project and she loved it. Then after that I hit a time where I didn’t do much productions and there wasn’t much to film or make but then I discovered You Tube and that I could produce videos for the entire world to view and enjoy and thus the0bluecoconut channel was born. (Read on below how I got to where I am now)
As I have said above I started my channel from my love of movie productions but it doesn’t explain how I got to be doing Minecraft or my new channel Bluecoconut Family, I am here.
When I first started the channel I didn’t know much about how You Tube worked or much about Movies online, my first two videos ever put on my channel where of my holiday in America and of Typhoon lagoon and the giant wave, this was filmed as you saw it no editing and for some reason this hit off I got 5 subs and within a year 15,000 views on it I was shocked. But then it all changed when me and some friends from my school discovered Minecraft I instantly loved it and started to produce Minecraft videos for the channel so my first one I didn’t have my recognizable Skotyyy Skin of the sloth, but had a skin of Seananners and in the video I blew up 2,000 blocks of TNT, it took ages to place them all carefully (remember you only had to punch one and it would blow up) and recorded it and my computer crashed 🙁
From that one video my channel blew up I started to make videos regally and did really well, my best video I have ever done was of Minecraft McDonalds which has got over 40,000 views. But I knew this channel wouldn’t last forever the views were drying up and I needed a fresh start so on the 24th of December 2012 I created Bluecoconut Family channel and got all my friends who had contributed to the channel together to all post videos and the audience keeps growing
Thank you Guys 🙂
