well the quality of my vids suck and my commantry isn't all that good either, hopefully the quality of my walkthroughs will improve with practice:) right now though i'm just making do with what I have, a free screen capture programme and a game, and yes i know very little about computors haha.
I'll try for this in the future:)

I have a question:
I eventually want to apply for director, but I play low res games like GBA and NES so it's impossible for me to produce "True HD" videos. Although I render them in HD and the quality is great.
Does "Fake HD"(Non-HD footage rendered at 720p) qualify if you don't play HD games?


And  I don't do commentary, I did commentary on 1 game and it ended up sucking. So that requirement is out of the question.

Well, if you watched DavetheUsher's videos, you'd know the answer is yes.
Even though he does commentary, the answer is yes simply because the Commentary never used to be a possible requirement. Dave's been a director for about a year and a half now, so yes, we do accept Old games rendered in 1280x720 at a high bitrate, given the quality is good and the sound is intact, along with the framerate not being sketchy.

Commentary takes a very very long time to get used to, it's all about practice and getting used to it I suppose.

As a tip: try thinking out loud. Don't try to talk about meaningless stuff. Think out loud about solutions to puzzles, things that may happen, strategies you might use etc.

I don't think your entitled to give advice for people applying, your not a director nor do you qualifiy to be one.
Your advice is half right, depends what you actually think about in your head though, we've had people whom have became very odd and disturbing to be around due to your theory.

Here is my suggestion for commentary, just be natural, be yourself and have fun while doing it, sure you can give out tips and pointers to the folks watching, but more importantly just have fun doing it, don't force yourself to do commentary if that's not your thing.

Exactly. That's what i did with Kirby 64 and am now doing with NSMBWii.

Plus, in my opinion, if you get angry, feel free to express your anger. Like "this is one of my most hated levels". I dunno but people usually like seeing people get frustrated.

Both are right. What I did as I began doing commentary was to speak from the characters point of view. Its like playing a character in a real-life role playing game. I tried to figure out what the character would think and say while experience the situation by his own. It works for me.
