How I Found Revver...What Kept Me There
How I found Revver -- Last year, November issue I believe, PC Magazine had a little filler on Revver. I cut it out, told a couple of my video buddies to check it out (I hadn’t yet) and promptly forgot about it. January comes along and one of those buddies sends me a link to it, which I don’t click on. During these months, I had purchased Sony Vegas Movie Studio and Sony Acid Music Studio and I was finally able to make some little videos, which I thought would be fun to start posting online. Sony’s AcidPlanet didn’t totally impress me (which my software pointed me to). And then, around February, I remembered Revver. So I checked it out.
What’s this messy tags list on the right side? Why is Jarvis a tag? Well, I guess I’ll click on this Hungry Turtle video…
What Kept Me There -- The very first video I clicked on was Nalts’ Hungry Turtle which had Jaw’s music set to his swimming turtle eating something. I thought to myself, hmmm, I could do that (missing the whole point of Nalts’ genius). I clicked around some more and started seeing more of Nalts’ family videos, Evil Hand 1 & 2 and Annoying My Son. From that point on, I was hooked!
In late February, I posted my first video, and started to get hooked on Stat watching. I’ve only posted 6 so far, had one mentioned in the Revver Blog, one on Most Watched and one on Editor’s Picks – it’s all very exciting.
And, then, I followed Nalts’ profile, which led me to Revverberation which has made the experience richer for the information and entertainment and for recognizing that there’s a community out there. It’s also chock full of info on this brand spanking new industry.
Are home-cooked videos just a fad? I don’t know, but I’m glad to be participating in it.
