Documentaries

So I’ve long had an interest in making documentaries. I remember way back in idk 2013 maybe when I took my trip to Arizona I was thinking about it. Recently I’ve been thinking about it again.

I have very little experience in making videos other than the videos I made for my MisterMiceGuy videos. They weren’t the best videos but I was working on it and working on how to make them better. While I was doing that most of my videos were of my hands and the mice. I discovered I don’t really like filming myself. Especially not in this talk-straight-to-the-camera youtube style. I suppose I could get better at it with time but I am just not drawn to it.

I don’t feel like my personality is really suited for entertaining people in front of a camera either. Despite this I still have this interest in making educational content, and maybe documentary style videos. I was watching some tutorials the other day that inspired me.

In the videos they had this interview style setup where the person speaking was looking at an angle away from the camera. Like they are speaking to an interviewer and not directly to the camera. I wonder if I could do this and make auto-biographical content? Could I do something like this but include content about mice? Psychology? Biology?

I am not really sure if it would work but I think the potential is there and I would like to explore it.
