First and foremost, whom are you producing videos for? In most cases we do them for our own enjoyment with hopes others may enjoy them also. This oftentimes compares with family home movies, (insert boring here) however if motorcycle related youíll already have a captive audience from fellow riders, even if only a bunch of guys drinking beer, laughing and blasting your production.
I personally find all aspects mentioned, enjoyable if delivered well. Iíve added many sound bits to my music library, I otherwise wouldnít have known about had it not been for someoneís video. Keep in mind there are music haters out there and you wonít be able to please everyone, however we all have mute buttons.
Commentary and subtitles are also invaluable if delivered well. If youíre producing to gain notoriety on Youtube, youíll have a wide audience from all demographics and need to figure your target base. Donít forget to include captions to your commentary along with subtitles for the hearing impaired. A well-blended audio of motorcycles running through gears, burning tires or just the sound of a train whistle blowing as your passing by can be an awesome addition to a video.
In the end, producing good videos takes time and dedication. Your best indicator will be the number of subscribers, likes and shares you receive from your channel. And donít worry, the haters are there and gladly offer their opinion whether asked for or not.
Myself, Itís still an uphill battle to attain a level of bearable and have come to the conclusion, if I could get physicians to prescribe my videos to their insomnia patients it would be a win win situation.
Best of luck.
