“Woo-Hoo! They’re Number #1! They’re Number #1!” – Happy 30th Anniversary, The Simpsons

Top Ten Best Simpsons Episodes

7. Barthood (Season 27, Episode 9): …

Although I comment some new Simpsons episodes as, “Meh”, I actually loved Barthood. By watching this episode, you’ll be denying, but secretly feeling sympathy for BartSince watching the show, I’ve never known a background (growing up) story for Bart or Maggie. However, this is one of the best future episodes I’ve seen. I liked how Bart has different connections to his family – from how he’s overshadowed by Lisa and to his close connection with Abe Simpson.

Bart’s live in Barthood can also be relate to any kid and adult, who has gone through isolation in their lives. If this was a classic episode from the 90’s, then, I would re-watch it all over again. But, I will and would recommend Barthood to anyone who is a fan of The Simpsons.

5. I Married Marge (Season 3, Episode 12): …

I Married Marge is a heart-warming episode, which shows that true love can conquer all, despite having to live with no money as a young, unmarried couple. Can a married couple survive on low benefits, unexpected pregnancies and family differences? Well, this episode provided me that. Even as a child, it taught me that it takes someone (who will love as you are) to stay with you forever. This is an excellent example, truly showing why Homer and Marge are the iconic and inspirational couple in the modern world.

4. The Girl Who Slept Too Little (Season 17, Episode 2): …

Like I Married Marge, The Girl Who Slept Too Little is a touching episode and it tackles fears very well. Although many new audiences or old audiences before Season 16 won’t consider a “classic Simpsons episode”, there is something about The Girl Who Slept Too Little that drew in me into it. It certainly isn’t the jokes, nor is it the animation; it is the meaning behind this episode that touched my heart (and I couldn’t help myself by smiling, as well). This is a great episode for anyone who is into old TV shows before the 2010’s.

3. The Book Job (Season 23, Episode 6): …

The Book Job has to be a firm favourite in the series – and not just for my love of books. It depicts a clear understanding of how some novels are used, via market research and non-existing authors to receive profit, how society is losing out for true, individual talent in modern literature and what it truly takes to create something that doesn’t cost a fortune. The storyline was well researched too; according to Wikipedia, the idea for this episode came when Matt Selman (the Executive Producer) read a magazine article about Alloy Entertainment and the company’s use for ghost-writers’. Also, I love the fandom tributes that the creators used in this episode – Ocean’s Eleven and Harry Potter, what more could you want? Basically, I just everything about it and that’s why I put The Book Job at number three.

2. Large Marge (Season 14, Episode 4): …

Large Marge is a clever and creative episode; as long as I can remember, this is the only episode that tackles issues with plastic surgery. Large Marge is also one of a few classic episodes where it has a moral at the ending – you are beautiful, just the way you are. I highly praise Ian Maxtone-Graham’s creativity, writing an interesting script focusing on situations where women want to improve their beauty so they can be attracted to men. It’s a fantastic episode to watch and you will learn something from it; a good episode to start with if you are new to The Simpsons.

1.   Simple Simpson (Season 15, Episode 19): …

This episode has the most funny, touching and charming storyline I have ever seen. I really love the relationship between Homer and Lisa, which was the main focus of the episode. Many of the father and daughter moments in The Simpsons are special, but this one takes the crown because of all the promises and love they gave to each other. Also, I love the spoof of Homer and Marge’s upside kiss, inspired from the 2002 film Spiderman; for me, that kiss just makes my heart flatter. Can’t go wrong with a tender kiss. 😀

Apart from that, that’s all I have to say about Simple Simpson.

Girls’ Hero – Wonder Woman Review 

This review contains a lot of spoilers; so be prepared.

I never was into Super Heroes when I was a child. Normally, I was into Princess’ and Disney. You can imagine that I was into Prince’s rescuing the damsels in distress and setting off into the sunset, living happily ever after. 

Then, there came the backdrop. Underneath the fairytales and movies, I began to see reality in a new perspective. The people around you and the world you see; they all change. Suddenly, you are stuck and don’t know what to do. Who can save me? Who can – help me save myself? 

Can I save myself?

Well, Diana Prince did and she was ready to tell her story to the world.

Yes – my latest review is on the recent release of Wonder Woman, which has taken the film world by storm. But did this film had a place in my heart? 

Indeed it did.

Before I seen the film, I saw the trailer and had mixed hopes. When it came to it’s release, however, a lot of my friends suggested that I should see it. And I did. 

If I didn’t see Wonder Woman, I would have regretted it. It was a masterpiece; and perfect for everybody. Especially girls.

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman
What’s the Story?

Diana grew up in the hidden island of Themyscira, under the protection of her mother, Queen of the Amazons. But when a World War One pilot crashes on the island and reveals a plan to destroy the world, Diana leaves Themyscira with her new friend, Captain Steve Trevor to uncover the mystery of this plan and take down the culprit – Zesus’ formal enemy Aries.

Opinions 

I love the concept of girl power in the early twentieth century; not a lot of films focus on independence for women – without the man fighting for them – and Wonder Woman focuses touches on the subject extremely well. Most Dc films that have been filmed have been centred on male superheroes in the present day and they didn’t do well. Why? In my opinion, these films are the same. We’ve seen them before: stereotypical plot lines with no original material. Wonder Woman is different. Why? Well – it has everything. It’s more than a super hero movie. It’s a connection to reality and imagination, teaching the audience that life is more than saving the world. It’s about who we are. 

Diana Prince is a marvel. She’s someone who we can relate too and she’s the one who we can look up too as an inspiration. Gal Gadot is the perfect actress for Diana/Wonder Woman. She stole the spotlight in Batman vs. Superman and she’s done it again in Wonder Woman. She must be a good luck charm. Or a super star. Gal, in my opinion, should be in more films. 😊 

As for Chris Pine, his portrayal as Steve Trevor is very comedic and sympathetic. His timing is spot on, making his funniest scenes memorable. I cried when he said goodbye to Diana and took his life to save everybody – including the world he cares about. 

David Thewlis (or our Professor Lupin) is a top notch Villian. Despite the “liar is revealed”  cliché, I thought he delivered a marvellous performance. Lucy Davis is a great comedic actress as well. She’s got a full career ahead of her. 

There is one disadvantage I have of this movie and that was Elena Anaya’s portrayal as Doctors Poison. Don’t get me wrong, she was amazing. I felt that the character didn’t have a strong background story. It just didn’t make sense. 

I don’t have anything to say on the background, costumes or props. I don’t know why but I guess it’s a mystery. 

Conclusion 

Wonder Woman is a treasure to the movie industry. No wonder why Wikipedia said it’s currently the eighth highest-grossing film this year. However, it should be higher!!!!!!!! 

Although I’m a screaming fan for Wonder Woman, I would like to round off this review with a serious conclusion. Not many films have the capacity to open up about the truth. With the events we are facing in the world right now, I believe that we need love and kindness. More than ever. 
Wonder Woman has a lot of inspirational morals and quotes, especially the ending when Diana says that not all people are bad; it depends what you believe in. It’s a quote I now hold close to my heart. 💖 Now and forever more. Xx 

Wonder Woman is a must-see for everyone. Not just Dc comic fans. It’s not outstanding as the Beauty and the Beast live action remake but it’s not bad either. It’s a strong film with a great storyline and amazing characters. If you haven’t seen it, I beg you to watch it.

If you have seen it, what do you think of it? And who is your favourite DC character? 

That’s all for now. Until next time.

Coming Out with Epilepsy 

https://youtu.be/tXtjbPLmbkk

I never thought this video would see the light of day. In fact, I didn’t believe in myself to speak out about my diagnosis but now I have, I feel much better. 

When I received my diagnosis seven months ago, I was just in my early stages of adulthood. College had finished for the Summer, I was on top of the world with my YouTube channel and I had a lot of plans for the future ahead. When I got the news, my life stopped. It was like whirling down a plug hole and I was the water. I could have done things but that put a spanner in the works. 😒

I didn’t know what to do or what to expect. 😞 However, life seems to have taken me into a 50/50 turn. Sure, I have to have limits for the rest of my life but there are other ways to. After uploading my Story Time video, I began to see a positive side of things. This included:

  • Getting my life back on track 
  • Finding alternatives to my health, academic and social lives 
  • Raising awareness about Epilepsy 
  • Finding new dreams 

I really want to raise awareness and share my opinion on the matter. And now with help and support from my wonderful friends, I feel that I’m stronger than I was before. 😊 

I don’t where the road lies ahead now but I feel like I’m on top of the world once again. 

Lastly, I want to say thank you to everyone who for your support and encouragement at this time. I’m so lucky to have amazing friends in my life and I really couldn’t have done it without you. 😊 ✨ 🌟 

Life’s a journey but we’ll get there. Just believe and soon we’ll be there. ❤

2017 is Here: What Next? 

​Happy New Year, you wonderful readers. I hope you all had a wonderful day and night yesterday (or tonight, if you are out today). 

I finally managed to upload my first video of 2017. If you want to check it out, I’ll leave the link for you here: https://youtu.be/EwXxP0aMIfs

Now that’s done, what next? Christmas is done. Resolutions are done. And the excitement for January is done. What is the next direction? 

Before 2017 came, I knew that I was going to be in for a roller coaster ride. A lot of changes will be in the works. My own journey to the river will be harder to cross and when it’s all over, that’s it for another year. Now, it’s here – I can help but notice that strange feeling. The sensation in my stomach. The butterflies flying around. Excitement or nerves? I honestly don’t know. All I can say is – think of today, never worry about tomorrow. 
So far, I’ve been looking at options. I’ve been looking at future adventures, jobs even video content for my channel. It is crazy to think that for the first time, I’m preparing for the adult world. No more education (unless I choose to participate in another course) and no one making decisions on my behalf. It’s all up to me. If I’m going to be independent, I’m going to be brave. 

Well, that’s all for now. Do you know any suggestions for our readers? What advice would you give them?

What are you looking forward to in 2017? 

I’m sure, it’ll be an unforgettable year for all of us – but until then, keep smiling and dreaming.

New Year: New Me?

Guilty habits are one thing but busy habits are another. It has been a while since I’ve written a post but with my channel and studies, I just didn’t have enough time. 

Looking back on 2016, I have seen that the world can be ugly – and understand how we are all afraid of things that don’t matter. We also fear of the things that do matter. Human mistakes and destruction have more authority than it has been. (In my opinion, at least.) However when there’s fear, there is hope. This a good opportunity for voices to be heard, to let not others be afraid and to give them courage. Change happens and we shouldn’t be brought down. We should be lifted up. 😊 
I had many doubts and sadness this year but I had happiness too. On my YouTube channel, I’m nearly at 400 subs (as I recently celebrated my channel’s first birthday). I also started Twizola Designs – a little jewellery business – and a second blog for Twizola Designs. And making new friends. It has been a roller coaster but hey, doesn’t happen to all?

So, what’s next? 2017 is going to be a huge year for me. I’ll be officially graduating University in the summer and have ambitions to travel around the world. But, I also have other goals that I want to achieve too.

  • Still be active on my channel – and take it to new heights 
  • Meet new friends 
  • Be more social 
  • Publish a novel 
  • Meet (and possibly collab) with my favourite YouTubers 
  • Star as a film extra 
  • Dare to be and feel different 

I’m not sure whether they will happen. If they do, then I’ll be the happiest person on earth. 

That’s it from me – and for 2016. Are there any New Year’s Resolutions you want to achieve in 2017? And what’s your reflection on 2016? As always, leave your comments below. 😊 

See you in the New Year.

YT.I.I #4 – Chickenshedmylife 

​​Welcome to another month of YouTube International Interviews. Today, we’ll be interviewing Daggie of Chickenshedmylife.


1) How did Chickenshedmylife came to be? What inspired you to start? 

When I first became a YouTuber back in April 2016. I believe that I wanted to share my story with everyone of my favourite YouTubers (including you) in order to raise awareness of Autism because I’m Autistic myself.
2) What made you decide to set up Chickenshedmylife?

Well, when I watched all videos from YouTube, I felt that I wanted to share my experiences that they never seen before. For example; I planned to film my Summer Favourites during my stay in Ethiopia – I.E. visiting Museum ETC.
3) Did this experience had a positive or a negative impact on you? 

Firstly; I would like to go with the positive impact because I believe that being an Autistic YouTuber is an important opportunity to share my Autism story in terms of how my condition affected me during my infant years. But; in the other side of the negativity, I felt scared about the fact that the strangers would go through my YouTube details.
4) Ok, trivial question. Do you prefer individual or collaboration filming?

I prefer individual video. 
5) The biggest challenge you’ve ever faced?

As a Small YouTuber, my main challenge is to do with the fact that I kept on reading the facts instead of learning it while filming it.
6) Any favourite videos of your own? 

My favourite videos of my own are Autism in Girls and World Autism Awareness Week. – Chickenshedmylife
7) Inspiration for your channel? 

My YouTube Channel inspired me to treasure good memories when I first started Chickenshed in September 2014.
8) Who are your favourite YouTubers?

My favourite YouTubers are Actingmylife (which is you because you’re my best mate); aww, thank you so much Daggie; Beccisss, Tim and Kate’s World, The Oxley’s Daily, ComedyShortsGamer and many more.
9) What can do see yourself doing in five years time? 

In five years time, I would like to set up a family vlog as it got to the point where I can share my family life at home or elsewhere.
10) Is there any advice you would like to give for anyone who is starting a channel of their own? 

My advice for people who is setting up their YouTube channel; don’t be afraid to share their disabilities.
A massive thank you to Daggie. If you want to check out her channel, click here:

The Dreams, the Reality and the Truth

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post but it’s good to do it again. It’s never easy when you are catching up with your studies, doing YouTube videos and – other things. Time is precious thing and I want to make every moment count. That’s why I wanted to write about collaborations between dreams and reality. Mine are complicated; full of secrets, locked inside me and barriers daring to not break them – but I will.

All my life, I have always dreamt of surprising everyone. So far in my short lifetime, no one would really believe I could to anything because of my disabilities. To them, that was a sign that my loved ones should completely give up on me – I was nothing. By chance, I managed to prove them wrong. I’ve been to mainstream schools, I’ve learnt how to read, and write, I came out with GCSE’s (not fantastic results, but it’s still something), and A Levels, I’m in my final year at University, I set up a blog, I set up a YouTube Channel and now, I have a few projects in the works. I won’t give them away though. Sorry.

However, there are still may that I have to tackle; I’m sure my loved ones don’t mean to crush my spirits or tell me I shouldn’t do anything because I’m not “experienced enough”. Sometimes, I do get angry and emotional, forcing myself to shut away from the world. And it’s okay because you don’t have to be a person who smiles all the time – I get that compliment a lot as my parents taught me to be happy.

These emotions do teach me something though. Every day when I get up in the morning, I would always listen to Coldplay’s Yellow – although the song’s about one-sided love, it represents my view of the world. I don’t really understand and to be honest, I never will. But what if you create your own world and make it your oyster? It’s something that I am working on.

If parents tell you to not upload something on the Internet, go for it. (As long it’s clean though – no dirty stuff!) If teachers say that you won’t get far, prove them wrong – take courage, focus and study the subjects your love till your last breath. If someone says that you’re “not good enough”, stand up and let your inner voice be your guide. Everything is worth risking for, even the lifestyle you have for many years. I’m happy to be living penniless for a novel that’s worth publishing for. I’m happy to be travelling around the world on my own when I move out. I’m happy to save others rather than myself. And I’m happy to be different – even if I make the occasional mistakes.

This is my world and this is how I’m going to live it.

 

I know this is a short post but I wanted to get this off my mind – and my chest. It’s something that I’ve always to write for a while. Pathetic, I know but like I said before, I’m letting my inner voice be my guide.

 

Anyway, must be off. I have a lot of catching up to do. But just remember that if you are lost or alone, just pause, think and mediate. I may not be able to change you but I know that I trust you to follow your own path.

YT.I.I #3: It’s Lucee 

​Welcome to another month of YouTube International Interviews. Today, we’ll be interviewing It’s Lucee.

1) How did ‘ItsLucee’ come to be? What inspired you to start?
My channel was originally a collab channel with my old friend Becky. It came under the name TwoMindsThinkAlike due to the simple reason as best friends it was common we would say things at the same time. However, as the channel became my own I felt it necessary to rename and move on. My nickname is Luce and therefore wanted to incorporate that into my channel name. It was originally going to be ‘ItsLuce’ but there was a channel with a similar name and I wanted it to be different. By adding the extra ‘e’ it also sounds like Lucy.
Many british youtubers inspired me to start, PointlessBlog and Zoella are some examples. When I was bored during the summer of 2013 I would watch youtube and so I wanted to be creative and make my own videos.

2) What made you decide to set up ‘ItsLucee’?

I feel this has mainly been answered in question one but it was all about creativity. I’ve always been into creating things from a young age and so wanted to try a new platform. 


3) Did this experience have a positive or a negative impact on you?

Youtube has mainly been positive. The amount of confidence I have built from talking to a camera has really shocked me, I never in a million years thought youtube would build up my confidence because at the time it was just for the pure fun of it. Of course along with creating content you get the negative side of having to look at the analytics and were the good and bad are. I am sometimes put off from making videos when the amount of views is lower than expected. Even something as simple as a thumbs down can put me down if on that day I am not in a positive frame of mind. 


4) Do you prefer individual or collaboration filming?

I love to film on my own, it’s when I am most creative. Talking to the camera is awkward but if I am filming a ‘cinematic video’ I guess you could call them then I like to be on my own creating content. Collabs are always fun, although I have only done a few. It is nice to sit in front of a camera with someone else sometimes. 

5) The biggest challenge you’ve ever faced?

I presume this is through youtube, challenges occur daily when on the youtube platform but non really big enough to talk about. I am only a small youtuber so don’t expect to get big challenges yet, but I guess editing can sometimes be a challenge when something goes wrong or the video doesn’t export. 

6) Any favourite videos of your own?

I love the short film type videos I have created, ones with memories. It’s the videos that you can look back on and really smile at what happened that day that make for my favourite videos. I must say however one of my favourites isn’t even uploaded at the point of writing this. It’s a cinematic type video about going to the woods but it just reminds me of a day with my grandma, one of my favourite people. It’s due to be uploaded soon and I just hope it’s a video everyone loves as much as I do. 


7) Inspiration for your channel?

There is a quote that has always stuck with me ‘Those who are afraid to fall, never fly.’ It’s inspired me to try new things in order to fulfil life. Therefore, a youtube channel was something new to try and so I went ahead and made one. 

8) Who are your favourite youtubers?

I have always loved family vloggers but currently ‘The Dale Tribe’ are my favourite family! One of their daughters; Aspen suffers from Type 1 diabetes and so their vlogs are very close to home being that my mum is also a type 1 diabetic, their family are great and definitely a family to watch!
I have loved Roman Atwood’s videos for years now and he is still a favourite of mine. His slogan ‘Smile More’ is something I have learnt to live by.
Another youtuber who I like is actually quite a small Youtuber. His name is Joe Maw, some may know him as an actor in the CBBC program The Dumping Ground. His vlogs are inspired by Casey Neistat (Another youtuber I watch and love!) but they are short and sweet vlogs that I could watch for hours!


9) What do you see yourself doing in five years time?

In 5 years time I will be 21. At this age I hope to nearly be at the end of a paramedic science degree at university. That would truly be amazing. The youtube channel I hope to have a few thousand, a small community. I have a image in my head of vlogging my progress through university so I can look back at them to see the progression. A lot of youtubers nowadays set out to earn money but that simply isn’t the case for me. I don’t plan for youtube to be a career so I just hope in five years that my channel has grown from the current 850 subscribers I have now.

10) Is there any advice you would like to give anyone who is starting a channel of their own?

I think firstly, you need to make videos you enjoy making, I prefer editing short films rather than sit down videos and therefore short film/cinematic style videos are what I like to film more of. I would also say don’t start youtube for the money, some channels don’t take off for years after making them and so don’t go and drop out of college to pursue this career. (Obviously that is just my opinion!) 

Answers from Lucy Smith aka ItsLucee on youtube. I upload every Saturday and throughout holidays sometimes upload on weekdays. I enjoy reading comments on my videos as it really helps me decide on steps to take to pursue my channel. I would like to say thank you to Sez for allowing me to answer these questions for her blog, it is a wonderful idea of hers!

YT.I.I #2: Paper People 

​Welcome to the second edition of YouTube International Interviews. Today, we will be interviewing The Paper People. … From their Frozen Parody to a possible Dr Who Parody, these comedians know about delighting fans.

I will now hand you over to the Paper People, who will begin with a wonderful, eye catching introduction. 

Hello, it’s Paper People here! We hope you enjoy reading our interview answers (we are very interesting). Don’t forget to watch our latest video 

https://t.co/IzAZ8jgBAD do subscribe!


1) How did Paper People come to be? What inspired you to start?

Imogen: To be honest I can’t remember the start of Paper People. We’ve always come up with various parody ideas, Paper People happened when we stopped procrastinating and got on with it.

Francesca: Emily Curtis is impressively awesome and impressively terrifying, so when you mix those two qualities with Imogen’s insanity (not to mention her artistic temperament) and my ability to just go with it, we somehow ended up with a YouTube channel. To this day, I tend to just shrug and assume that all is well.

Emily: Both Imogen and I had tried to make YouTube channels before, but hit a bump in the road at the whole ‘making the videos’ aspect. I don’t really remember how it  happened, but I’m sure it had something to do with Francesca’s endless mind of creativity. One minute the three of us were discussing yet another of our grand assents to success, and the next I’m singing ‘Hallelujah’ in front of an IPad.

2) Whose idea was it to start Paper People?

All three of us wanted to do the YouTube thing but I think the parody videos idea came from Francesca, because she is the ultimate fan girl. She also came up with the name Paper People. Badically we were discussing song writing and one of us said, “Hey, we should make a YouTube channel.” And lo, it just sort of happened, really.

3) Did this experience had a positive or a negative impact on you?

Imogen: Positive definitely! Now we have something to show for our ideas, and of course its been great fun.

Francesca: I’d say it’s been a really positive experience, even if it’s mostly involved blackmailing friends to subscribe and filming in parks with dressing gowns and giant teddy bears. It’s fun (until it rains) and it stops us fossilising in our rooms (until we start editing – then we never see the light of day again).

Emily: Definitely positive, it’s given us a reason to keep getting together. Plus, who wouldn’t want to walk around town in a nightgown.

4) Ok, trivial question. Do you prefer individual or collaboration filming?

Imogen: I am WAY too unproductive on my own, collaboration for the win!

Francesca: I personally prefer collaborating because it curbs my natural instinct to procrastinate.

Emily: I suppose it’s always collaboration for us. Although we are going to use a bigger cast for our Dr Who parody soon, so we’ll see how it goes.

5) The biggest challenge you’ve ever faced?

Imogen: I’ve got to agree with Francesca on this one, I can never keep a straight face when we’re filming!

Francesca: Biggest challenge we’ve ever faced? Probably trying to shoot without laughing. Harder than it looks.

Emily: From a YouTube point of view, editing. Computers actually hate me and I think my Mac and the wifi box are plotting a rebellion.

6) Any favourite videos of your own?

Imogen: ‘On my own’ was just hilarious to film, we had to haul a massive teddy bear around Southampton! However compared to what we’ve got planned that’s positively tame.

Francesca: Ok, this is a little narcissistic, but “Let it Load” was my favourite to do because I directed it (and wrote the lyrics), which is always really fun, and I’m really proud of how well it turned out.

Emily: The Frozen parody ‘Let it Load’ staring ME! Some people say I’m self entered, but enough about them, back to me.

7) Inspiration for your channel?

Imogen: Definitely the fans of the shows we’re parodying, everyone is so creative with whatever they create, from fan art to fan fics, animations and everything in between. It really inspires me to keep improving the quality of our work.

Francesca: Inspiration for our channel…I’m going to have to go with The Hillywood Show for that one. I am a devotee of their videos and I’ve watched them all at least five times each. I learnt so much about filmmaking just by watching their “Behind the Scenes” vids, and they’re so lovely and talented that it’s honestly no surprise that I wanted to make something as good as theirs.

Emily: Our undying love for Dr Who, Supernatural, The Avengers, Welcome to Night Vale… We need to get out more.

8) Who are your favourite YouTubers?

We love the humour of communitychannel, and the creativity of youtubers such as thisbedottie and Izzy Inkpen just to name a few. As well as The Hillywood Show.

9) What can do see yourself doing in five years time?

Imogen: Missing important uni deadlines because I was binge watching re-runs of Dr Who (not much change there) …Ahem, uh I mean functioning as a responsible adult. Whatever it is I’ll be doing art though.

Francesca: I’m planning to study Film Production in university so I can one day become a film director (like my uncle!). Also, I write novels in my spare time, so hopefully I’ll end up a successful author one day 🙂

Emily: Watching to much TV and eating cake, I like to set goals I can achieve.

10) Is there any advice you would like to give for anyone who is starting a channel of their own?

Imogen: In the words of Shia Labeouf “Just do it!” Your camera quality may be bad and your editing worse but perfection is something that comes with practice so just do what you enjoy and most importantly – have fun!
Francesca: Advice for the budding YouTuber: 

– Don’t be upset if you start off slowly; people have to notice you first! Just be patient and the views will start flooding in.

– Be the best you can. Go the extra mile on editing, filming and lighting – they really do make such a difference.

– Work hard…but play hard too. YouTube isn’t the be all and end all of life itself. Try to have a backup hobby (like, I dunno, knitting or something).

– Have fun!

Emily: Find stupid friends (preferably two of them), borrow a nice camera, and pretend you’re funny and that you can sing. Who knows some sucker might actually believe you some day 😉
