I am very pleased to announce on the first day of the new decade that we are launching our YouTube channel today. You may remember that in the past we had a channel with a series of videos that were outsourced for production. They are no longer available and from today on the channel will only be videos that I have produced.
The first video I chose was the Top 10 Incredible Smells that will blow your mind as they bring together a number of things that I'm particularly interested in (fragrance, macabre and bizarre, and science). It is also a list that I have written and it seemed appropriate to use my own writing as a start script. The video deviates from the original list in many ways: new entry, changed order, rewording. I'll tell the list so you can finally hear all of my New Zealand accent! In my usual style there is some disturbing footage and content.
I would appreciate feedback on the video as it is my first attempt to create a YouTube video, and I put a lot of work into it – think So when criticizing it: Be honest, but gentle! Please also go to the Listverse YouTube channel and subscribe to it. There will be one new video every week until my skills have developed and I can produce a video faster.
The narrative was recorded in a professional studio and everything else was done at home with Final Cut Pro. I am happy to answer all questions in the comments here or on YouTube.
