Re: travel low content thread

I wasn't really sure where to put this so advice on a good forum to ask in would be appreciated. I'll probably stick it up on talkphotography.co.uk soon.

I posted a video of a hippo Vs hyena clan confrontation that I recorded whilst on holiday to my Youtube channel, which has a whopping six subscribers. The video has picked up a massive 1,200 views, which is a couple of orders of magnitude more than my next most watched video Does this mean that people are showing it to their mates?

I've just received the following message on Youtube:

Quote:
Hi Allan, I work at Newsflare - a leading video marketplace. We specialise in distributing videos to news organisations and production companies. We're interested in working with your video. Please can you get back to me at antia.xeada@newsflare.com or give me a call to T +44 (0) 8432 895 191 (6282) so we can discuss this further. Thanks!
Any idea on what my best play is here? I've googled the company, this thread on talkphotography.co.uk suggests that they're legit. Going by the amount that the bloke in the thread received I won't make much money off this but I would get a kick out of seeing something I recorded end up in a magazine or similar. I have no idea whatsoever how much something like this is worth and whether or not I should hand over rights to a company.

This type of stuff gets pretty popular. I have no clue what you should be asking for though.

Re: travel low content thread

It might be getting being shared a bit, mostly though it'll be getting recommended by youtube in the sidebar when people are already watching stuff about hippos and hyenas, so they click onto it to check it out after whatever vid they just watched. Or the autoplay function if users haven't turned that off, will autoplay a related video, sometimes yours.

I'd probably let the company work with it. It will be a fair bit of work to go viral by yourself without a subscriber base. You'd probably need to make a new vid edited down to be shorter and just have the coolest parts in, plus a more eye catching title & thumbnail (although you could just change those on the first vid). Viral vids are usually a fair bit shorter than yours, people have low attention spans:




See the ridiculous / fake thumbnails and crazy titles.

Videos make about $1000 per million views from the youtube ad revenue, so if that video was monetized, about $1 so far. With that thumbnail, title and length I can't see it going viral, you need about 10k views for it to really start getting recommended and picked up in search results, then it's exponential from there. But it's worth more to the company as they'll get more views out of it. Not sure either, but maybe $100 if it's really good footage (I didn't watch it all). So the equivalent of you putting in work to make an edited version and eventually hitting 100k views with it on your own.

If you don't do anything with it, either let the company work with it or make an edited shorter one, it might get noticed by a viral wildlife channel. What they basically do is steal cool original content and edit it so much that they can claim 'fair use' and it becomes legally theirs. They'd make it much shorter, maybe add commentary / soundtrack, transform it enough so you can't sue them and then their video will go viral and they'll make all the money. So you might as well let the company go for it if it's your first vid with some views, rather than wait for that to happen.

There's an ex 2+2 travel forum guy who has one of those viral wildlife channels, one of the biggest out there, at one point he got sued by national geographic but overall has come out ahead, he made a lot of money.

Re: travel low content thread

Thank you both

I hadn't thought about other people pinching it so that they can make stupid videos. That Epic Wildlife channel is horrific. Letting the company have a go at selling it looks like the best bet. I downloaded some video editing software earlier this morning then gave up after 20 minutes so I doubt that I have the patience to make something marketable myself. There's also the question of whether or not the footage is good enough. It's interesting to me but I'm on the obsessive side when it comes to wildlife watching.

Re: travel low content thread

I was told Trezor is ok and the one jspill recommended but never got the chance as all mine stolen from Blockchain. Kept my last buys in jspills one and all good till I made a transfer. Then found out that bloke sum kunt had stolen my puters brain. Back to drawing board as still a long way for it to rise, well Bill Gates and Dick Branson and Originator have all said Buy Buy and keep for long term.

Personally I think that K2D started the rise when he sold out.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

People can take anything as an insult or offensive. That's pure projection though. Just like looking for problems or trouble...

In my opinion it was a rather creative attempt at expressing my physical self with rather limited options (i.e. no money for tattoos, body mods, etc).

More like provoking others to "help" me in a cooperative effort as you see below. If me asking for a teammate to help mangle my body is insulting to someone. I'm not sure what to say. I would be rather flattered someone thought of me for the job.

Sort of the same drama that Jesus played out. He knew what was going to happen (provoking "authority"). Made for a good story though. However, wouldn't have been the same if nobody saw the stage play (which is why I invited my attacker/costar into the busy street instead of the alley).

Re: travel low content thread

Hey so I'm having trouble making money with my website and wanted to give Youtube videos a try.

So I'm looking to hire a girl to come over and help me channel aliens. Was going to advertise on Craigslist and maybe downstairs at my apartment or the supermarket, but have no idea what to reimburse a person for something like this (couple hours work).

Also, any idea on where to get a Ouija board in Bangkok? Don't want to use the Ouija long term - I'm hoping just to get the alien to speak directly, but I don't want the girl to feel any pressure sort of like training wheels.

Gonna need a camera too, saw some at Pantip Plaza, but will listen for other recs there as well.

Re: travel low content thread

Minimum wage in Thailand is like 300bt a day so you're probably going to have to offer around 750 for a 3hr session with a somewhat clairvoyant Thai girl.
I would also offer bonuses for each species you are able to contact
Just your everyday normal Grey you can kick her down an extra G. Any non Naga reptoid race (Nagas are common in Asia) should be double that and Anakims even more on top of that.
See what races the girls is adept to attracting and negotiate from there I guess.

Camera, do not cheap out. I'd say invest the majority of your bankroll in 2 top of the line DSLR's. One normal and one set up for infra red

Totally worth the investment because your YouTube channel and hence your website will take off with views and clicks if you can supply some good Alien on Thai content for our viewing pleasure.

Re: travel low content thread

750 sounds fair. I was thinking 500 -1000 since I pay 400 when the maid comes by for a couple hours, but like you said those seem like farang prices compared to 300/day.

this sony camera seems like it would do a decent job for basic youtube videos. says it takes 4 AA batteries and thinking if i upgrade those to nimh i should get a couple hours of recording but never had a dslr like camera so don't really know (got about 1.5 hours on my old canon vixia camcorder)

as far as the ouija board could probably find one at a place on this list, but for now i just put up the wallpaper below in 2560 x 1080 resolution on that 29" LG i just bought. figured just have her put her hand on the mouse and see what happens and i can take notes (and do other things).



(btw that troll over in the ask me thailand thread, lostinparadise or whatever, is not me for anyone wondering. i've basically given up on finding a girl or spending money in general)

Re: travel low content thread

also, for those who think Ouija is just a 'game'. the Seth Material (which is considered the most influential channeled text post-World War II) started off with him coming through a Ouija board with the name of "Frank Withers" before taking on the Seth personality.

which is interesting when you look at these screenshots from Donnie Darko talking about an "imaginary friend" who leads people name Frank:



(Donnie Darko is also a movie that plays with ideas of time and simultaneous time was one of Seth's major teachings):

Re: travel low content thread

Heads up to anyone looking for renter's insurance while traveling. Cannot recommend Geico (AIG is the underwriter).

I've been on the road most of the time for over a year now. Their "computers" have had no problem scheduling and executing payments from my credit card on time every month.

Yet, now that I filed a claim last week (for a clear cut robbery you can read about in the Thailand AMA) , their "computers" are suddenly inoperable until next week.

Have put a hold on further payments from my business credit card for suspected fraudulent practices until this is resolved. This review will of course make it's way onto every other travel site on the internet (tripadvisor, lonelyplanet, thaivisa, etc, etc).

As long as you don't go back to the states I don't think they'll try to extradite you for insurance fraud. So you're all good

I misspoke in the previous post - the underwriter is Assurant through American Bankers Insurance Company of Florida - not AIG. These people are such a clusterf*ck it's contagious. Can't wait to quarantine from the toxicity.

Re: travel low content thread

I got a sexual disease question, I'm not sure if I should post it here or in the Thailand thread. It didn't happened in Thailand, but I know there's quite a lot of expert hanging out in that thread. So here's how it went... can I catch something if she were rubbing her pussy on my dick and got wet on me? She rubbed the tip of my dick on her clit. She's a working girl but looked kinda clean.

Usually I don't really care, but now that I'm seeing a regular partner I'm a bit worried. What you guys think?

Re: travel low content thread

Ya, can probably catch herpes like that if she is having a breakout but if she looked clean them probably no worry at all.

I did a quick google image search of herpes breakout. I wonder how those people can live with themselves. I'd probably commit suicide or something if that happen to me. I only experienced gonorrhea, wich was fine, since it's easy to get rid of
