My first YouTube video

I finally got around to doing my first proper YouTube video – after many, many, many, aborted attempts. I’ve filmed hours and hours of footage and just hated all of it. So, instead, I put a brief two-minute intro together as I can’t procrastinate on this task any more. Enjoy. 🙂

TRANSCRIPT

0:00:37.309,0:00:41.940
Hello and welcome to… whatever this is.


0:00:41.940,0:00:46.900
My first video. I thought I’d better make one
to introduce myself, tell you a little bit about me.

0:00:47.060,0:00:51.560
I’m Jay Shareef. I’m probably best
known for being a heterosexual

0:00:51.570,0:00:54.020
stand-up comedian and podcaster.

0:00:54.020,0:00:57.720
Although, truth be told it’s been more than a year

0:00:57.720,0:01:00.700
since I’ve done any podcasting or stand-up.


0:01:00.700,0:01:02.880
Or indeed heterosexuality.

0:01:02.880,0:01:06.340
Instead I’ve been busy working.
Working hard trying to pay the mortgage,

0:01:06.340,0:01:10.500
feed my family. The kind of things that
responsible adults are supposed to do.

0:01:11.000,0:01:13.440
Then the whole world changed!

0:01:13.440,0:01:17.440
Just because some horny communist
on the other side of the world decided to

0:01:17.440,0:01:22.820
get freaky with some endangered species and
suddenly we’re all the middle of a global pandemic.

0:01:23.600,0:01:27.560
Like many of you I’m pretty much stuck at home 24/7.

0:01:27.560,0:01:32.620
And I’ve decided this is a great opportunity to
pursue creative things, to learn something new.

0:01:32.620,0:01:36.780
To try something that you haven’t done
before, or expand your existing skills.

0:01:37.340,0:01:39.620
I’ve wanted to make videos for a long time now.

0:01:39.620,0:01:43.940
And clearly now is the time to stop
procrastinating and get on with it.

0:01:44.700,0:01:48.000
But the big question is:
“What do you make them about?”

0:01:48.000,0:01:51.980
Now my feeling is that whenever you
are involved in any creative endeavour,

0:01:51.980,0:01:55.860
you will do your best work if it’s
something that you’re passionate about.

0:01:55.860,0:01:59.040
Something that you love.
So what is it that I love?

0:01:59.940,0:02:02.420
Basically… Nerd things.

0:02:02.940,0:02:06.760
You know: Science. Technology.
Gadgets. All that kind of stuff.

0:02:06.760,0:02:09.420
But at the same time, I also love cultural things.

0:02:09.420,0:02:11.720
So… The Arts. History. Travel.

0:02:12.480,0:02:14.620
So that’s what I’m going to make my videos about .

0:02:14.620,0:02:17.780
I’m going to be sharing the things that I
know. And the experiences that I have.

0:02:17.780,0:02:19.140
I hope you have a lot of fun.

0:02:19.140,0:02:21.620
I hope I also enjoy it just as much as you do.

0:02:21.620,0:02:23.800
I’ll see you at the next video.
