– So welcome to episode one ofthe Asian and Caucasian Show.
We had our little introduction.
I showed you some of thecharacters such as Bella over here who's walking.
This is the Asian.
I'm the Caucasian in caseyou couldn't figure that out.
If you're new to thischannel, this is Moving Matt and we do all kinds ofdifferent travel-type stuff.
(upbeat music) Usually, it's all travel-related.
The Asian and Caucasianshow is a little bit more of our vlog style, just kindof an everyday type thing.
I say all that to say this.
The topic of today'svideo is how do you make a travel channel when you can't travel? No, seriously, how can you? Because I'm trying to figure that out.
No, so I do have some good ideas, maybe.
So here's my first idea abouthow to do a travel channel when you can't necessarilytravel all the time.
My first tip is to makelittle videos like this.
I mean, maybe this isn'tcompletely in your niche, but you are able to work on your craft.
You are able to introducepeople to the characters that are gonna be travelingand hopefully start to garner a little bit ofa following through that.
Another thing would be towalk on squeaky bridges so that your audio's great.
Ooh, looking at me funny, Elle.
Do I look at you funnywhen you're dancing? Do I look at you funnywhen you're dancing? No, I am encouraging.
– You're gonna edit that out, right? – Nope, it's going inthe video, thank you.
So a little backstory, mywife is actually from Vietnam.
We had two months that wewere gonna be traveling in Vietnam, but (beep)is going on right now.
Awful, terrible stuff what's going on.
Way more important than thislittle channel or anything.
Hopefully, they'll be ableto get that taken care of for way more importantreasons than traveling.
That being said, here we are.
Our trip to see her family, it's all of a sudden canceled.
What do you do when youhave a YouTube channel and you want to travel, but you can't? – Hi.
– [Matt] See, I should justkeep you on camera, no problem.
– Nope, nope, – Wow, that was a prettyimpressive backbend.
That's a good picture.
– [Thuy] (speaking inVietnamese) so cool, you see? – The next big thing I wouldrecommend is to travel locally.
So you are in your hometownand to you, it sucks.
Okay, no, maybe you loveyour hometown, but for me, I live in Nashville and Nashville is a really big tourist location now.
I don't 100% understand it, but I was born and raised here and there's a lot of thingsI can do in Nashville, even though it's rightdown the road from me, that would be reallyinteresting and informative for people that's not me.
So I would encourage youto try to find things that are unique around youwithin maybe a 100 mile radius or maybe 200 miles.
Where can you drive to that's interesting? We all have Google.
We can all Google and say, okay, what's cool around me and what can fill the gaps for the times that I can't go travelto exotic locations? Whether it be Asia which islike what I would like to do or Europe or some of theislands or something like that that are extremely coolthat maybe you can't do, but maybe what is it that you can do? Yeah, I'll probably edita lot of this out, Elle, but the more you ask me to editit out, I'll probably keep.
The third and final main thing is that by doing little videos likethis, there's a lot of value and by going to the placesaround you and getting video, there's a lot of value becausewhat I've found for myself is that a lot of times I travel to a location and I have all theintent and I watch videos of people like Lost LeBlanc or, you know, Peter McKinnon-type videosand you see all the cool stuff that they're doing and you think, man, I want to make a videolike that and that's what's in your mind, but the gap comeswhen you get to those places and then you start tounderstand, oh my Gosh, I don't know how to do that.
I don't know how to make that edit.
I don't know how to make that transition.
So even if you decide not to post it, I feel that there's a lotof value in just taking out your camera, getting out in the wild, and start filming stuffbecause that way when you are at the location that you want to be at and you do have the videosthat people will be searching for, they search and they find a channel that is worth watching and I think that is how you have a travelchannel without being able to travel all the time.
You practice yourcamera, you practice your on-camera presence, and hey, maybe you even post it just to get people more familiar with you because the thing is you're gonna go through videos you suck.
That's just anything in life.
I look back at videosthat I made a year ago and I thought I wasgetting really good content and I go to try to editthem now and I'm like, oh my gosh, this is terrible.
I hope I can save it in the edit, and I'm sure that no matterhow good my videos are, they're not gonna meet the expectation that I have in my mind.
They're not gonna be aPeter McKinnon video, but it's my video, andI have to keep growing so that I can get better.
So that's my message, that'swhat I got to say today.
We'll see if this gets posted, bye.
