Looking for ideas from other guys that either watch or make their own videos?

A little bit about us: A group of friends and family that decided to hunt just like you, we just happen to have a camera with us when we go. I personally got into this as a teenager, and after getting an associates degree in Digital Marketing I decided to start up a small business. The business is based on Faith, Brotherhood, and the Outdoors.

Now that we're a few years into this, we've built up a schedule of hunts and trips we have wanted to go on for years. The only downside is that everyone knows the market for hunting videos is saturated. However, our goal isn't to do this for a living, we just want to show that the average joe can go out into the field, and have a successful hunt. We also love the idea of connecting with guys and sharing our faith through our passions in the outdoors.

My question for you is: With all of the content there is out there today, what is something different that you guys would prefer to watch over treestand sitting for whitetails?

I'm using this to gather some intel so I can hopefully impact some more beginner and novice hunters as they get introduced to the same sport we all love. Here's a video link to show past work, and it's only going to get better from here.

I like almost any hunting videos with good sound quality and picture quality. Just don’t make it look like it was done with a cell phone. Otherwise I also like when guys explain what they are doing in the video, not for too long, but you can be like, “hey, now we are going to go up to that ridge and get a different angle” rather than just having a ton of scenes put together and we have no idea what’s going on. I hope that’s helpful.

Man, all of Stalker's stuff he's been putting out with the Push is really good. That and Western Hunter. It's a lot more cinematic, but they don't Donnie Vincent it up too much and I just really like that style.

I think there's a lot of the "how-to" and documentation guys out there already, like Elk101, Hunting Public, BRO, Hush, etc, and they do a good job... but I am not going to sit on YouTube every night for 45 nights to watch a season unfold.

Excellent thread. I just recently started my own channel and I'm looking at filming my first hunt/daily journal on our september hunt.

I'm currently using filmora for editing and that is working well.

Besides drone shots, are their any other shots or filming styles that people think are neat? Timelapse? Landscape? POV narration?

I'm Kind of glad you said that because that was probably my intent. It's like I have to pick an audience per say. Some viewers like having a season/ Vlog style to follow. Other guys seem to like just a hunting episode of a full hunt every so often... Decisions decisions...

I enjoy the Vlog style, but I am kind of getting tired of it because so many are doing it now. I think that there needs to be more of a happy medium between that entire hunt being in one episode and the daily vlog style.

Good visuals and thorough coverage of the process. The quick hype videos can be cool but I enjoy a detailed leadup, not a huge fan of the videos that are like:

"We just landed here in alaska (cut to moose in spotter) (cut to killshot) Alaska has been great"

Yeah, man. I think you guys have to have a goal for what you're doing, as well. Like you said, pick an audience. If it's all about helping folks get into this stuff, how will you do it differently than everyone else? If you go the cinematic style, is it because you want to inspire folks and get a pile of views that eventually lead to sponsorships? If you want to document it for your own sake and do minimal editing in a vlog style, there's nothing wrong with that either!

Lots of options. I'm sure you guys will figure it out. BEST OF LUCK!

That's more of a brand and style question, me being younger and trying to appear a little bit cinematic, but yet upbeat enough to keep peoples attention. I would throw a couple in a video as long as they make sense, but I don't want a drug-out video because I threw too much of those kinds of shots in...
