XHB vlogs: a call to arms!
BotB Academy Bulletins
Level 23 Chipist
hello everybody, i am inviting you all to share your creative process with the world in the form of XHB vlogs!

what is an XHB vlog? an XHB vlog is a recording made by a BotBr as they compose an entry for an XHB.

it could be as simple as the raw capture of your screen & audio output over the course of the XHB, or if you want to go the extra mile you could provide live commentary as you work, or add narration and do other kinds of editing in post. it's up to you!

the idea germinated in this thread, and i subsequently made a lyceum page to collect them. there i said:

...this author believes that learning by studying the great masters at work is one way to level up your battlecraft. Furthermore, even accomplished XHBists could surely stand to learn more from their peers.

so why not show off your skills, and we can all learn something from each other! especially in demand are formats which don't have an XHB vlog yet, but all formats are still appreciated (in fact it might be equally valuable to see how different BotBrs approach the same format).

you can add your video to the lyceum page yourself or leave a link in this thread and i'll do it.

the BotBrs whose work has been featured so far are cabbage drop, DefenseMechanism, and shinichi.

happy chipping; happy vlogging!

i recorded one for my pyp no.6 just to see how it's like; i can have it up in a couple of hours

might do this for an nsf/sms entry once those come up. i think it'd be more interesting

update: it is here

it lacks commentary but this video from coda
should probably be on the list!

edit: when first starting this entry, i tested a recording. none of my audio commentary came through and it's only the last 25 10 minutes (edited out blank time), but you could watch it here
if you're interested

defmech do you know what OHB entry that coda video corresponds to? the title says it was recorded on the 4th of february 2016 but coda didn't submit an entry on that day, or any time around then. does coda have an alt?

p.s. enjoyed the ten minutes of LSDJ ;0

got two new xhb vlogs to contribute:

another 4kb module, for "tomato.it" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F06pAAtw7Y4

a SNES battle, for "star fox now in cinemascope.smc" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U8JCcuFwFg

and since i didn't post it in the thread the first time (but it's already on the lyceum list), here
was my first 4kb module vlog

I just wanted to let you all know that I really appreciate that you're making these. I have a lot of respect for all of you just for putting your music out into the world, and as someone who has zero talent I really enjoy seeing how you manage to put these together. It makes the art of composition feel less like an unachievable witchcraft.
