100 thoughts on “i was scared to make this video… + life update

  1. Is it just me or does Chris look younger now, the hair cut looks good? I also thought Lizzie was pregnant! Congratulations on the office!

  2. So glad I watched until the end because your ending message for creators was exactly where I am right now. I needed those words of encouragement! Thanks breaking it down to an exercise

  3. I just started a YouTube Channel and want to deliver valuable editing content to 100k people! Would be so great ๐Ÿ˜„

  4. I liked your video. I usually donโ€™t hit the like button, out of laziness, but the way you asked did touch me. It hit the chord haha
    So I smashed the like button and left a comment! Keep up the good work!

  5. Thanks for being so open about your "filmingblock" …unfortunately there are many out there that show the "perfect life" adding unnessesary pressure and insecurity with smaller creators…SO THANK YOU!

  6. "I lift your wood all the time, I don't complain about it." Brilliant!!! (I just became a new subscriber just because of hearing that one phrase!!) (Crack 2.) (So, you've always had short hair since I've known you!) (2020 plan – me and she are traveling west, starting in PA, to photo and video with my new Mavic Mini, the vastness that awaits!) (I like parenthesese.)

  7. I needed that today. I lost a few subs from my last video and that hurts a little bit. I'll get back to creating and replace them!

  8. Separating yourself from work is something I'm trying to change for this year. My work is primarily as a wedding photographer and it was leading to me living an unhealthy schedule. Pulling all-nighters to finish weddings faster and stuff. This year, I'm giving myself business hours. As of now, 6PM is my cutoff. I stop editing at 6PM, period. After that, it's family time.

  9. so this is a new thing, reviving vlogging for all the youtubers? Genuinely curious if youtube is incentivizing this somehow. Also a couple of packs of ceiling tiles would go a long way to improving that space…cheapest way to revamp an office.

  10. I'll re subscribe after a couple videos if its genuine content. Seemed like every video was a commercial for something before

  11. When I donated my hair I didn't think I would miss it so much, but it made it seem that it would mean a lot to someone else too. It was a life goal realized for me. I really respect those in the public eye that give back and use their talents for good of others in their own way. Kudos, have a great new year you two!

  12. Awesome video. Even Awesome-r advice. And I know it's been said already but Lizzie's comment โ˜ ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

  13. To anyone scrolling through these comments today, have a wonderful day & remember you are beautiful & worth it๐Ÿ˜Š. Thanks for the great video, Chris!

  14. I was in my late 20s when I first shaved my head. I was going bald, like my father before me. It is a massive change, no matter how much you have taken off. It will all be okay ๐Ÿ˜‚

    This year, I have more photo trips planned, Iโ€™m putting together an online course for photographers who want to be in business (consulting is my day job) and I want to do more with YouTube because itโ€™s a lot of fun.

  15. Really needed to see that last part of the video. It feels a lot more real and achievable to overcome when a bigger and more 'figured out' creator also feels that kind of anxiety with their content sometimes.

  16. Thanks for this video man! I had exactly the same the last couple of weeks with my YouTube channel (a lot smaller channel! ๐Ÿ˜‚) and literally made a video about it today! but I was massively overthinking everything to the point where I didnโ€™t know what I was doing with. Iโ€™d pick the camera up and not be happy with anything and then put it down and not come back to it because I was to worried and overthinking. Everyone has phases like this but you get through them! ๐Ÿ˜Š great video! Looking forward to seeing more! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  17. Lizzie with the Zingers ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    Congratz guys๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ Happy New Year

  18. I donโ€™t know how I stumbled onto this video but Lizzie is the main reason why I kept watching all the way til the end and now Iโ€™m subscribed cuz she is deadpan hi-larious. Also you look cute with that hair

  19. 2020 and beyond – continue to be myself Chris. Regarding your hair; it looks good mate, but what are you going to do with your hands? Keep on keeping on.

  20. This year…3 short story projects…now I have more time that I will take the time to direct 3 passion projects instead of worrying about school schedule.

  21. This was my first time watching your channel. I have seen you several times on McKinnonโ€™s channel but this vid popped up on my recommended so I checked it out. Thanks for stepping out and making it happen. Oh and thanks for the pattern interrupt title. Otherwise I probably wouldnโ€™t have clicked. ๐Ÿ˜

  22. Mate,

    I am so stoked to hear that you donated your hair to such a great cause.
    As someone who was on treatment for 3 and a half years during high school, having a wig helped me so much to be able to have closer to a โ€˜normal lifeโ€™ at least for that time.

    So much repeat for you for doing this.

    You have no idea how much you would have changed that personโ€™s life.

  23. Iโ€™ve been thinking about cutting my hair too for the last 2 weeks but something is holding me back, but seeing you already did it makes me think itโ€™s about time. This will be the second time that I donate my hair. Last time I said โ€œthis is it, no more long hair for meโ€, but one day I realized that I could make a bun again. Time flies by. I hope this is the year when I finally vlog constantly on YouTube.

  24. dude I feel anxious is exactly what I am feeling. I just started a youtube and I WAS LIKE WHAT IS THE VIDEO GOING TO BE!, so now I'm going to just start!

  25. Good to see you back dude. I still donโ€™t have great direction for the immediate future, so donโ€™t stress ๐Ÿ‘

    My goal is to make the stuff that I like, and if others like it too, good. If not, then good!

  26. New Office – Cool
    New Haircut – Cool
    Donate hair to charity – Way Cool
    Buy planet killing SUV – Not Cool…..seriously, have you not seen Blue Planet?

  27. Awesome way to start the new decade! Great to see you again! Awesome that you donated your hair to charity! Congrats on the new office! Congrats on the new video! Congrats to Lizzie for keeping it all real! ๐Ÿ˜œ

  28. Thank you for this. I am totally feeling the same way right now. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป And youโ€™re hair looks great, btw! Congrats on the office space!

  29. Hey Chris, cool about donating your hair! I was considering doing this too. Then one day I was watching a video of animator Aaron Blaise, and he donates his hair (and man, did he have a lot of hair!) That was it, so then I donated my hair. (After seeing me do this, my son donated his hair!) Now, I just need to get myself behind the camera and get some videos done! Not happy with my current phone LG G5 and it's lack of features for Filmic Pro, so saving for a better phone. Thanks for your video. Good luck in the new space. Oh, by the way… I think that the new haircut gives you a professional look.

  30. Crack โœŒ Congratulations on the new space!! and looking forward to the new vlogs! Any plans on doing something with that ceiling though?๐Ÿ˜ฌ

  31. It makes me feel better knowing that even a Youtuber of your caliber, still gets nervous/anxious when you are about to start creating content.

  32. I know you are not going to even see my comment as there are 523 ahead… however I will want to add that I don't comment on your videos but this one is the first one I really liked… very real, shows your personality, it had humour… loved it… keep going
