OK here's the basic run down. Since 2014 at Pay it Forward TV on You Tube, I been taking my camera and going to video interview local charities, benefits, and nonprofits or people paying it forward in one way or another.
And my talents to talk to anybody about any given subject on camera just doesn't translate to a audience with my lack of skills. I mean it has to be my lack of skills in editing and knowing how much b roll to show in editing and how or where to insert ambient music or just having a still image for a logo or opening credit spot.
Because I interviewed Jeremiah Johnson of the Jeremiah Johnson Band, who has had multiple #1 hits on the Blues Billboard charts, and that video only got like 200 views. I mean ya that was before getting a lighting set and the lighting was bad. But still how many nobody reporters can say they sat down with a blues legend and got a one on one interview?
Really all I want to do is interview awesome people that help other people and inspire others to pay it forward, while doing it. I'm not concerned about who owns my channel, if I ever make money, or if I have to work for somebody in doing so.
I mean I haven't made any profit doing this, because giving back is my passion, and it always will be. But who says that a nobody biker / part time liquor store clerk can't have a dream to one day get paid to do what I absolutely love doing?
So I made a profile on here hoping I could find a team, to email my videos and pics too after each interview, to edit and send back crediting myself and themselves on the video's. I mean I am the entire crew and host at the moment, and I think the video ministry is a great idea. It's just my lack of knowledge keeping it from blowing up and making my dream my day job.
I mean, even if I find help making this look professional, I wouldn't even know where to begin shopping it around to get a real series that pays. But for right now, I just need to find collaborators to be part of the Pay it Forward TV team. It is my vision but I'd gladly step aside and let someone else quarter back this thing.
I just wanna ride my motorcycle and video interview great people helping others, like that "Ride with Norman Reedus" series on TV with a pay it forward twist, and one day get paid to ride and kick it with awesome individuals helping others in their communities.
And my dream was for it to make enough that I'd be able to leave a donation from the show or it's sponsors. I'm not greedy or vain in ownership, but I need some help to get there.
