Ah, alright.
Well, copyright owners seem pretty lenient about chiptunes, judging by my own cursory searches on youtube for videogame soundtracks. Mostly Mega Drive era stuff, in my case.

I really like it. Standing up does wonders for the posture, you talk out. You're getting it right.

For pointers, I'd say, more eye contact with the camera and maybe try to put the camera a little higher, because right now it's slightly below you.

Huge improvement though, good job :y:

Ah, thanks for the info there, Gil. Pretty interesting! For the record, intimidation = 0%. Avatar Annoyance = 14.5%. Value rating of your input in this community = 89.2%.

Cyber high-five!

xhunter, when I get my speakers set back up, why I'll give episode #6 proper attention and give you some actual feedback.

Thanks much gil!

About the camera. I'll see what I can do about that. It's currently mounted into my laptop, so not a whole lot of control. I've been trying to work at looking at the camera more. I try to have my scriipt directly below my camera software so I can see it easily. By the way, I don't know if it should be right at my neck, or more at shoulder level. What do you think?

@mathias: I'll be looking forward to that! :)

The trick is to make it seem as though you're conversing with the guy on the other side of the screen. There's no rule as to where the camera should be I think. Try paying attention to some close-ups in movies and figure out which camera standpoints add which emotion and why.

I think  you should try talking to the camera unscripted. Maybe you could try doing a private video where you tell the camera things that matter to you....no scripts, do it as a kind of meditation...maybe then, when you do your show you feel like you already got to know the camera and can treat it more like a person

Thought I'd share this with you guys. Even though youtube for some reason didn't save my changes (grumble). I'll have to do all that over again later.

But aynyways, episode 8 is up, finally.
