***The only hardline rules are the deadlines. Do whatever the heck you want for your “cooking video” just don’t break any goontube rules or your vid will be pulled.
STEP 1: Sign up! HERE! In this thread! Ya dingus!
-Submit the following information in this thread before registration deadline (02/27/2021)
-What are you going to cook? Even if it’s just a rough description or a catchy phrase that’s fine. This is to encourage people to think a bit about what they’re going to do before registering. Recreate a family secret or a youtube classic. Submit a clip of you nuking some cold pizza! Whatever you want really. Tutorial on how to walk to the local deli and buy a sandwich? Yes please! Do you like HowToBasic videos? Me too! Somebody is gonna have to eat it though. Goontubers will be judging your video so make sure you cater to your (lovely) audience as best you can!
NOTE: YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR RECIPE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE BUT PLEASE UPDATE YOUR POST WITH THE NAME OF YOUR VIDEO BEFORE THE DAY OF THE EVENT
STEP 2: Film everything!
-Make your dish and document it. Don’t have a Sony A7S III? Use your flip-phone or an iPad. It’s basically the same thing
-Narrate your progress. Tell us what you’re doing. What the heck ARE you doing? Lure your flatmate or significant other into the kitchen with promises of snacks then trick them into filming for you to get plenty of great footage.
-You don’t need to document the 35 minutes in the oven at 350F, but if you do, we hope you at least recite some poetry or do a bit of a dance for us or something while we wait.
-Camera shy? You don’t need to film your goony face! Film from a first person perspective and narrate! Don’t like the sound of your own voice? Neither do we! Film in silence or add a nice background music track to your video!
STEP 3 (optional): Eat your food and tell us if it sucks!
-Eat your food and vouch for whether or not it’s actually food.
-Film your reaction and provide something along the lines of:
-On a scale of 1 to 5 how does it taste?
-On a scale of 1 to 5 how does it look?
STEP 4: Edit your video!
-This is the hard part. If you’re a mac person or on an iPad you probably have iMovie. If you filmed the whole thing on your iPad you’re all set! If you’re on PC, download OpenShot https://www.openshot.org/ If you know what you’re doing ignore this part and do your thing.
-If you can do the whole damn thing in a single take without any editing, awesome ignore this section!
-If you need any help with light editing, let me know and I’ll help you out. DM me and we can figure something out!
STEP 5: Upload your video.
-If you need help uploading your video to YouTube, DM me and I’ll help you out.
