Gaming Pilgrimage: YouTube Video Editor

Gaming Pilgrimage is a YouTube channel started by my friend, Darren MacPhail whose channel covers various Japanese role playing games through reviews and play through videos. With the demand for more videos increasing, Darren asked me if I can help to produce content for his channel. This includes capturing footage from various games, create intro videos, edit and upload them to YouTube. With live streaming becoming an essential for any video game content creators to reach newer audiences, I have created Twitch.tv stream graphics for his channel such as status screens. 

 

Creating the Pilgrimage

My role is broken down into 2: video editing and asset creation. Some of the games that Darren covers goes back as far as the original gameboy days, so I have to find ways to capture footage from the respective games so we can edit it to view in at minimum, HD resolution. 

Video Capturing steps:

1.. Review the script written by the director and make a list of shots needed.

2. Capture raw game play footage of the designated game.

3. Edit it into multiple chunks to make it easier to edit with proper labels.

4. Final check to see if I have all the footage I need.

5. Hand the footage off to the director who will compile it with his commentary.
