A short reel showcasing my work as an on-camera host. All the pertained clips were published either on YouTube, or embedded on Screen Rant/CBR.
This is a good example of the work that I do with Screen Rant for their YouTube channel. A pretty by-the-numbers list video, but I really feel like my presentation in this video is pretty well done, as the audience seemed to react to it rather positively.
While working on the Screen Rant YouTube channel, I have produced several different types of content, in an effort to expand the channel's offerings. This is one such experiment; a sort of "history of" kind of video about popular characters. In this case, Marvel's Black Panther.
Here is another example of a different kind of content I tried out, this time being a bit more focused around a review and analysis type format. We ultimately decided not to continue forward with this type of video, since it apparently did not resonate very well with audiences. Still though, I had a lot of fun with the series and really think I created some quality content.
This is an example of what sort of work I have done in the past for Screen Rant/CBR's news department. Showing a pretty standard type of video, complete with a basic stand-up and cutaways.
This is yet another fairly standard video for Screen Rant/CBR. However, I think this does a good job of illustrating how far I have come as a host when you compare it to my Screen Junkies audition video below.
This was an incredibly fun video to make for Screen Rant. I was basically given free rein to make jokes and sort of rip into the biggest box-office bombs of 2016. Really went all out with this one, showcasing a much more casual and exciting read than I usually get to do during normal Screen Rant videos. Easily one of my favorites.
This was a topic that I didn't want to talk about, and was not fun at all. All that being said, I think that I did a good job with this video. It is a good example of what I can do with a more serious or somber read. Especially when the topic hits as close to home as this one did for me.
For my YouTube channel, I produce videos focused around storytelling and game design, specifically targeting beginners who want to learn the basics. One of the series I produce on this channel is my "White Wall" series where I basically define and then boil down complex or intimidating parts of the game development process, making them easier to approach for newbie designers. All the while trying (and sometimes, admittedly, failing) to include some humor and entertainment in the process.
Every once in a while, I rant about something that is on my mind as part of my "Ponders" videos on my YouTube channel. Basically, it's me, in front of a camera, just talking, which I then take and edit into a cohesive discussion. This episode is a personal favorite, and seems to be the one that had the biggest positive impact on my audience.
This is a hosting sample that I did for an open casting call that Screen Junkies put out a little while ago. I wrote and recorded this stand up to showcase what I can do while hosting a news-oriented piece. Watching this back today, it's amazing to me how much I have improved since doing this read. A good example of what I am capable of doing and how quickly I can learn.
