I have my Multi Mount set up in the centre of my monitors by clamping it onto the back of my desk. It’s the backbone of my setup as it holds up my DSLR and allows me to shoot at any angle I need, whether it’s Facecam over my gameplay or an unboxing of the latest consoles.
Just like the Multi Mount, my Key Lights save so much space in my setup! Lighting is so important for video quality and being able to switch it up on the fly whilst I’m recording or streaming is really helpful. Especially being in England, you never know how the weather is gonna mess up a shot.
I absolutely love the way my Wave:3 sounds. I don’t have to mess around with my audio in post because the quality is already exactly what I need with this mic.
I’ve definitely got my use out of the clipguard feature when my sims were causing drama and I got a little bit too loud for my viewers ears.
What advice would you give to a first time creator?
Do what you love and don’t be afraid to reach out and build genuine connections in the online community you’re a part of. If you’re enjoying the content you create, that will be obvious to those that tune in and it encourages them to also love your content more. Making genuine connections with people in your shared communities makes you feel as if you do belong there. It also means you’ll have people to discuss the important stuff with. Always make sure you have people in your corner and that you’re always in theirs, cheering them on.
Knowing what you do now, is there anything you would change looking back to your first stream?
I probably would have bought some good lights sooner or tried to change the layout of my room so I could make the most of natural light. It’s amazing what good light can do for a camera and it’s one of the first things I notice when I tune into streams.
Do you have a content creation goal you are aiming for?
I want to continue the conversations about LGBTQIA+ representation in video games and how studios can make it feel authentic to the community and what options they can include in their games to make people of any gender or sexuality feel as if they can continue to make or play as themselves.
