YouTube recently offered a free Maximise your channel course, which although pretty basic, offered some insight into best practices on YouTube. One of the activities to complete on the course included creating a trailer for unsubscribed viewers to see when they go to the Srizzil channel page. I’ve been wanting to do this since the 2013 YouTube channels launched but hadn’t gotten around to doing it. Doing the course forced me to. I took footage from all of our videos and went through them pulling out a great moment or two. From there I threaded it together with some emotionally stirring background music.
The result is something that feels beautifully nostalgic and yet hopefully showcases the videos we make at Srizzil pretty well.
