Hank Green on Creating Paths
Something he said about creating our own paths made us go: what a simple yet powerful statement! 🙌
ASMR Travel? Check out Go 4x4 on YouTube
There are travel videos, and then, there are travel videos that Go 4x4 — an Australian YouTube channel does. With about 1.33M subscribers, this channel is all about the sights and sounds of the nature. Words are seldom used, and you’ll find people traveling, camping, and indulging in outdoor barbecues. 🍗
Go 4X4 offers membership on Patreon that include exclusive access to community, chat, and content. Check out one of their ASMR videos and get psyched! 🔥
Made On YouTube? Make On YouTube Too
What a fantastic little but important feature! ✨
YouTube has launched a slew of features at its Made on YouTube recently, and we're beyond pumped about the new editing tool. YouTube announced it wants to remove the work out of video production so you can focus on what you love.
This tool is still under beta testing on Android for certain regions, and will be free to use. Creators can edit both long-form and short-form videos using this tool, and if you're a beginner, this is a great way to learn and showcase your creations to the world.
The blog post also says the tool comes equipped with features such as precision editing and trimming, automatic captioning, voiceover capabilities and access to a library of filters, effects, transitions and royalty-free music.
We love that all of this can be done right from our mobile phone, and YouTube is constantly trying to simplify the barrier to entry. When the feature drops, we'll surely make a video on it.
