In the eleventh episode of the Small YouTuber Podcast, I talk to Frank and Manu from the YouTube channel Pull My Focus. On their channel, they teach YouTubers and filmmakers how to improve their filmmaking skills. They’ve been making films for longer than I’ve been alive and are making super helpful videos that have helped me so much and will help you make better YouTube videos as well. They cover everything from video editing, scriptwriting, lighting, storyboarding – literally EVERYTHING!

In this episode, I ask Frank and Manu:

  1. How did you get started in filmmaking and what are some cool things you’ve done in the industry?
  2. There are millions of channels on YouTube these days. What makes you stand out from the crowd and what is the unique selling point that you bring to your content?
  3. What’s next for your channel?
  4. What’s one YouTube tip each that has lead to the success of your YouTube channel?

They share loads of helpful tips for making better videos and growing a YouTube channel. They also react to and critique my first ever video, which no one else has ever seen (it wasn’t even uploaded to YouTube)!
