Parallel Fates on Yu-Gi-Oh!
Although it is one of the hottest trends in Yu-Gi-Oh today, Yu-Gi-Oh on Youtube has also become one of my biggest pet peeves. While I have nothing against the concept of it in general, it is the little things that a LOT of people do not notice when filming that drive me absolutely bonkers. Here are 3 things of annoyance...
1) Power Robbers aka Fillers: Uhh...umm...you know...so...like...yea...
- This is the single most annoying thing I keep noticing about people who make videos. If I were to take one random Yu-Gi-Oh video on Youtube (non-duel), I can count at least 1 filler every 10 seconds. Although the filmer might not notice, but to viewers, this is very distracting. Imagine what the written script would look like if I were to write down everything said...
*** = Filler
Hi guys, *** I’m *** trying to sell of all my cards ***. *** My wants are listed at the bottom, *** *** let’s get started. If you can’t see a certain card, *** just let me know *** ***, or pause the video ***.
- What you see above is a standard opening for someone who posts a trade binder. In a mere 3 sentences, there is already 10 fillers used. Aside from making you incoherent at times, it also takes away from the message you are trying to get across. Here is a tip on correcting this...take a breath or just pause whenever you are about use one of these fillers. While it seems like a small issue, you will be surprised about how much better it is when speaking WITHOUT FILLERS.
2) Speak up!
- You are making a video that the world will see...so WHY ARE YOU WHISPERING?! There have been so many videos that I have seen which included the filmer speaking so softly I could hardly understand him/her. If you are brave enough to make a video, why must you sound like you do not want your parents to know about it?
3) Location, Location, Location
- Sometimes, I look at the video, and I just start to go “huh???”. You are opening a box or pack...but why would you be doing it on the ground? Not only does this make for horrendous camera angles, it just makes the entire video appear awkward. It is called a table or desk, and apparently it works wonders for supporting items...such as Yu-Gi-Oh cards and binders.
The next time you decide to make a video, at least put some effort into it. One final piece of advice...before uploading another video, watch it and then ask yourself: “REALLY?”
