  1. So I you haven't watch the new video from leo about holotropic/shamanic breathing. I tried the technique and this is what happened: Duration: 10 min Effect: Jaw tensed up a lot. Felt like I couldn't move my jaw it was very tingily. Whole body core also tingled but not as much as my jaw. Only did the technique for 10 minutes because I couldn't handle it lol. After I stopped the real effects came to the forefront. Dizziness, ring in my ear, very tense body. Felt like my muscles were contracting and pulling together again very fast. What was your experience?
  2. @RendHeaven Thanks! I use the Adobe programs, so Premier, After Effects and Illustrator. Yhea I guess so, but with editing you combine a lot of different skills. Composition, Animation, Compositing, Typography etc. Each has their own mastery curve. But focussing on each one separately, you can get very good, very quickly.
  3. Cool to see everybody expressing themselves. I find YouTube is a great way to express yourself and think clearly. When you talk on a subject you really have to understand it. So it pushes structure into your self-development. I have a channel but it is just a side project to get better at editing and motion design. Also it grew me personally a lot.
  4. I would reccomend first growing your YouTube in other ways before presenting it to people in your direct environment. When they see your video's are actually being watched they will maybe be interested but otherwise it just not good for your social dynamics. But the choice is up to you. It's not like you will suddenly get 700 subs, most likely a lot will think it is weird because you challange the status quo and some may like it but you shouldn't lean on that to grow your channel. Try to tap into online communities that are already thinking about this stuff.
  5. Bro nice video! editing is on point.
  6. Lately I have been thinking how a 9 to 5 might be a good thing, I mean you have a structure and people around you things get handled for you. You don't have to pay attention to creating a structure for yourself. You don't get as lonely sitting at home grinding away at a mighty goal. Not having a 9 to 5 brings a lot of extra psychological strain, which you can't put into other things. Not that escaping wage slavery is not good, but give props to how a job actually gives you a lot of free mental space and structure. I think people have this halo effect around working for yourself. But I been doing it for a while and came to the conclusion that the grass is always greener on the other side. Something I still have to work on.
  7. @XYZ At campsites, the gym or in Europe we have showers and toilets in petrol stations. It's going to be interesting for sure lol.
  8. Climbing/bouldering and skate-/longboarding are hobbies I enjoy
  9. Work and do not spend, live in a car and hustle. That is my opinion and my plan lol
  10. A good book on art in general is: Art & Fear I would also be interested in a book on marketing vs art, however I do think everyone has to strike their own balance. If you really want to make art you should not do it for monetary purposes.
  11. If you're talking videoscribe almost any laptop will do honestly, altough I don't know if it works on macOS you should look into that. If you use adobe premier it runs a bit better on windows but mac will do fine. I'm also buying a new laptop, will probably go for the DELL XPS 15 but thats for hardcore possibly 4K editing it's around 2000 euro's. I prefer the DELL machines because they have a good price/quality ratio in general because they produce on such a large scale and focus on online sales. Good luck with your choice
  12. Download the adobe products that way you're building the right toolkit from the start. There are thousands of tutorials online... I do actually recommend searching online for what you want to focus on and actually buying a good book on it. It will save you a lot of hours seeing the same things in different tutorials. My personal booklist on this stuff: Drawing: Finish the learn drawing in 30 days book Graphic design: Read: the Mollybang book, Finish all the 50 tutorials on the site, Read: Color and Light, A Guide for the Realist Painter Read: Dream Worlds, Production Design for Animation Read: How to Draw: Drawing and sketching objects and environments from your imagination Read: Interaction of Color Adobe: Read: AI classroom in a book Read: Vector Basic Training Animation: Read: Animated Storytelling by Liz Blazer Read: Design for Motion Read: Moving Image Workshop Read: AE classroom in a book Read: Creative Motion Graphic Titling for Film, Video, and the Web Read: Motion Graphics: Principles and Practices from the Ground Up (Theory Only) Read: Transforming Type: New Directions in Kinetic Typography (Theory Only) Read: Motion Graphics in Branding Read: The Animator's Survival Kit Read: Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects (Out Dated) Read: Motion Graphic Design: Applied History and Aesthetics
  13. @Equanimitize @Harikrishnan Thank you both for the support!
  14. Yhea, it's like driving through the city and thing who the fuck lives behind each and every one of those window in that building. Now you can actually see the people.
  15. Consider me a lucky person then lol Online dating can be great you can filter on a high volume of people, you just have to show in your profile what kind of person you are, this filters a lot of unwanted people away. Plus you got to work on your text game, don't be like all the others.
  16. How about running coach Programming is great because you can just learn it from your room and don't really need anybody from the outside world. Plus it's in high demand.
  17. This is so funny, I have the same thing with my friends. I'll just have to trust that when I'm 40 and chilling and their still finding the shit out I'm already learning right now lol. Sounds like the guy gets his esteem from putting other people down or playing it cool plus you're putting the halo effect on him. Realize it's just a mask he puts on. I act the same way towards a lot of girls because it works to some extent but it's not really authentic and that's a problem in the long term. Also about that time thing, keep this up and you will be at the top of your field, what I always tell myself: "You are fine with a education in computer science of 4 years but you want to be able to switch to your life purpose within a couple of months? This is gonna take some time and it wont be as socially acceptable as a nice collage degree, but this is what you have to do."
  18. I found mine too, I think it has been about 2 years now. Just like @kieranperez said it more about your ambitions. I think about half a year ago I finally decided to go all in on animation and motion design. It's really tricky and weird because everybody around you is just living a normal life and your trying to change the world in some way lol. But realize that everybody is just running on autopilot and don't really think about this stuff. Don't get sucked into their frame of mind. I know if I did it would mentally destroy me. The main obstacle to true mastery is social conditioning and expectations, you got to do you, fuck the others. That is what I tell myself lol. Once you got this thing going and you are fully aligned you are able to deepen your connection to the thing your doing. Slowly I'm realizing how powerful such a connection with your craft can be and you can get a lot of satisfaction from it, but you have to go through the initial rough years. On the other side focus on how much money your spending, invest and try to lower your living costs. In this way you could be able to switch to full time music faster. For me I'm able to do some freelancing video's for companies that are able to support me but in music I guess really have to build a audience. In the end I also just want to be able to independently create movies without people telling me what to do but that takes time. The phrase that I always tell myself: "You are fine with a education in computer science of 4 years but you want to be able to switch to your life purpose within a couple of months? This is gonna take some time and it wont be as socially acceptable as a nice collage degree, but this is what you have to do."
  19. Hey, I also made a counter intuitive move. I'm currently in the process of switching from programming to motion design. It is lower paying and everybody is asking why but I didn't really feel like I had a choice once I knew I would be miserable in a office working with numbers. I will finish my study because it is only one more year and that little paper may give me more opportunity in the future but I don't really think it is necessary. When you are able to show you can offer immense value, people will come. I have no degree or anything and I'm already earning money with making video's for companies so just keep at it man! Good luck!
  20. I had Leonardo Da Vinci, read up on him he is amazing! I think I also had Walt Disney and another film maker from my industry. I was mainly looking for people within my industry who I admired and wanted to be like.
  21. Improvement Pill uses VideoScribe. https://www.videoscribe.co/en/ The other guy has a camera above a white board and draws it himself. I use Adobe Illustrator, After Effects and Premier
