YouTube videos

I’ve spent some time trying to figure out how to make videos to revive the Charley Project’s YouTube channel, which belongs to Sean Munger but hasn’t been updated in years. I have a microphone and some film-making software. For that matter, I’ve got a video camera too, but I don’t want to use that. If I sit in front of the camera, well, obviously they will see me and be distracted from the subject at hand, namely the missing person in particular. The video is not supposed to be about me.

I actually like Sean’s videos quite a bit. They’re not complicated and get their point across. I’d like to make some like them. It seems like it would be just a matter of making the narration and aligning it with photos of the missing person. You’d think this would be very easy — they’re so simple, and obviously people considerably less intelligent than me have made YouTube videos — but I’m struggling with it.

It might be like the hair-braiding thing, which I was hopeless at but kept trying for weeks until it suddenly clicked and now I can make like eight different kinds of braids. That’s what I’m hoping anyway.

Any tips would be appreciated.

    You could record yourself speaking near the camera’s microphone, making a video from that, then edit photos into the video, covering up the video footage, leaving the audio intact?

      Maybe. I hadn’t thought of that idea.
