    Hey Gideon! I would love to have one of these custom made but the packages that there are. Just too expensive! I know you need to cover cost but $500 is too much!

  2. techbannana

    Just some feedback.

  3. Fancylooks

    What editing program is that? It looks like the old iMovie. I didn’t hear the name, sorry if you say it in the video

  4. GideonShalwick

    ScreenFlow – I think it costs around 100 bucks. Definitely my top kind of software for doing quick videos like this…

  5. pcodigital

    I will definitely try Screenflow, and thanks for the tip, but the link is not working.

    Hello, Gideon. What microphone do you use with you Edirol recorder. I bought one of those after I saw you using it, but none of my lapel microphones seem to work with my Edirol R-05. Btw, I love your videos. Thank you for sharing!

  7. GideonShalwick

    check my personal blog on the resource page – I list my equipment there…

  8. EduDeAguiarTV

    @GideonShalwick Thank You. :-)

  9. GideonShalwick

    your’e very welcome!

  10. GideonShalwick

    I techbannana! I’m working on some things for the future. I can’t say too much right now, but I think channels such as your own would benefit from it greatly! Keep watching…

    Splaheo is good but again, it should be edited as per requirement (colours).

    • Gideon Shalwick

      ok cool – but I’m not quite sure what you mean?

  12. max

    great video Gideon ,but I have a question, How do you hide all the youtube elements in your video frame? I know you can hide the top info bar by modify the html code, but I dont know how to modify the lower bar.

    Appreaciate and looking forward to your reply


    • Gideon Shalwick

      Ah – I am using a special piece of software for that – just testing it at the moment. Will soon have a video review about it…

    • Hey Max,

      To hide the control bar on YouTube, you can add the following as part of your embed code “controls=0″

      For a full list of embed options for your YouTube videos, check out this page:


      • Gideon Shalwick

        Cheers Hani! There are also some easier ways… but I will create another video for that later :)

  13. Great content as always, Gideon.

    You are the best!

    Thanks for all you do.

  14. Max,

    re: “I know you can hide the top info bar by modify the html code, but I dont know how to modify the lower bar.”

    Need to add “autohide=1″ to the Youtube iframe embed code.

    … I’ve got something that will do it for you:

    Set Autohide video control to Partially.


  15. Kantis Simmons

    As always Gideon you rock. I was just about to higher a freelancer, but don’t have to anymore. But this video just sinplified the process for me.

    – Kantis

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Excellent stuff Kantis! Glad you liked the video! Looking fwd to see some more greatness from you!

  16. Great work! Advice me how I can make this blog to look great here is my link your tips will be highly appreciated

  17. Good video as always, Sir. I’m having a bit of an issue with Splasheo. I give credit to you in my description, and I’ve used a Splasheo twice. Every time I use Splasheo my videos got locked “under review” for monetization over on YouTube. Do you have any ideas why this is happening?

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hi Kendra

      Hmmm… I have not seen this happen with anyone else yet, and I also use the same clips inside my own videos successfully. Could you please share the exact process you go through when you monetize your videos? We are just about to upload a royalty free license for free video outro clips that you can use in case YouTube wants to see a copy of it.

      If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your process here, you are more than welcome to email – the team can then interact with you there.

    Great video. How do you create or produce your Intro and outro? The effects and such. I use Adobe Premiere for my editing but not alot of options as far as lower thirds and intros.


    • Gideon Shalwick

      Did you watch the whole video Jacob? Cos I explain how mine was created inside the video. But basically it’s the team at who did it for me…

  19. How did you add a clickable link inside the video? I saw a recent software launch – simple video pro could do similar things but I am specifically interested in how you did in this video.


    • Gideon Shalwick

      I’m just testing the software at the moment, and will soon create a review video about it…

  20. Reijo

    Hi Gideon

    What do you mean with “lower third”?


    • Gideon Shalwick

      Just the cool little animation that comes up with my name and website at the bottom of my videos. Kinda similar to what you might see on news shows where the show the anchor person’s name when they start presenting…

      • Reijo

        Hi Gideon

        Thanks for the quick reply. Wasn´t familiar with the term. Now I am.

        Like your tips.


  21. emarketingdoc

    Hey Gideon, I’ve been studying your videos for a while now and the one thing that you forgot to mention (that I especially like and think is particularly “professional”) is your *brief* teaser intro before your logo stinger. To me, it gives it a “television” feeling. In addition, it’s good branding because people are less likely to tune out due to the pattern-interrupt. Great job, as always!

  22. RobA

    Gideon, Your audio quality is always great. What kind of clip on mic do you use?

  23. YoungDrawer321

    How do you add pictures to a video like you do can you please make a tutorial.

  24. MaxCalSebLouieTeebs

    hey Gideon how do you make the lower third?

  25. MaxCalSebLouieTeebs

    and what video editing software is it?

  26. GideonShalwick

    the team at splasheo.comdid it for me… they use Adobe after effects…

  27. GideonShalwick

    Hey techbanana – check the link in the description area now… something cool there for you now… :)

  28. techbannana

    @GideonShalwick Ok ill take a look.

  29. thinkfotos

    Hi Gideon,

    Love your channel and I try to apply alot of advice that you give. Recently I have been enabled by YouTube to upload custom thumbnails and I was hoping you could do a video on the style of yours.


  30. Jessii Bubu

    I just discovered your channel, and it is really helping me, I have been wanting to learn about videos for a very long time. I wanted to ask you something very important for me,
    where did you learn about making videos, what school did you go to? what school do you know about that is specialized in this? I really would like to know,please answer me :)
    anyway..i love your videos and I am so glad I found you!!

  31. GideonShalwick

    everything is self taught for me :)

  32. Cramn555CP

    Hey dude Im making videos which in my opinion are awesome but apparently not to others, you see the thing is a got quite a lot of views in my previous videos now all my updated videos have less views…? I do clubpenguin so the my videos are most-certainly in the gaming section! I subbed oh and please update to me about my channel!!!

  33. GideonShalwick

    the team at splasheo creates the lower thirds for me – just google “splasheo” and it should be the first result…

  34. Jo

    hi gideon,
    splasheo sounds nice. I have only two questions: – when are the other two components ready? I mean the outro and the lower third.. because what should I do with all of it, if I can’t have all three? So will there be a package for everything combined?

    – second: can I even purchase an intro if I still have to develop an psd logo?
    or is their maybe a option planned for the future, where splasheo also designs the logo?

    thxs and have a great weekend

  35. Great tips as always.
    Even though our videos never end up being as white and professional as yours.
    All the best.

  36. Kat

    Hi Gideon!
    I’m loving your videos and putting a lot of stuff into practice for my video launch. I also love the animated Splasheo I got, highly recommend! My question (sorry if this is not the right place to put it) is: if you are planning to use the new Joost video SEO plugin for WP that just came out, how important is it to still do video transcriptions? Are you planning to review the plugin for video blogging? It sounds awesome, and I’m taking to heart the advice on making your life simpler while making your videos, so I just want to make sure to leverage something like the plugin with your advice simultaneously. Thanks!

  37. Hi Gideon,

    You have amazing resources. Please help–I’m attempting to design a blog w/the Optimizepress theme; how do I get my template to look like yours?

    • Gideon Shalwick

      I use a professional coder for customizing my sites. Currently for the site, it uses a customized version of the canvas theme.

  38. navyseal12358

    i need more vewis

  39. Learnguitartunes

    The Splasheo intro I was looking at getting for my videos is only $47, for me that is £29.00 British pounds, which is a bargain.

    Free adverting and marketing for you there Gideon… lol… ; )

  40. techbannana

    Yes, I think the prices have been lowered or something! They were originally $500

  41. Marcussh10

    Can you any way get it for free? :)

  42. Gideon Shalwick

    there are some free versions at splasheo . com.

  43. nikaoto99

    Wow, you are smart , because you have your intro from 00:14 ot 00:17 and only 15 seconds of watching is needed for youtube to count as a view , so that’s something really smart :)

  44. Glenn Ost

    Nice video s Gideon…Who made your intro and outdo? And pric ewise

    Keep it up

  45. Ianthe Hernandez

    Wow! This is awesome. I was just given some homework if you want to call it that to produce a video with some of the elements that you are going through. I held my head in frustration until I found your channel. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  46. Hi Gideon, really my respect you are putting some great tips together here. I loved the idea of putting the subfield in there and didn’t notice how I myself have the trigger fired off until you mention it. With the professional setup, it’s just like I’m watching a professional TV channel.
    I just noticed that you give a 10 second preview of what’s to come in the video, only then you follow up with the intro, and then you go into the video. Would you get into your reason for that? I can see it as giving a good preview to keep people engaged so they won’t click away.

  47. justinsides13

    I got a problem… I am on a mobile device and I need a different download type…. Maybe apk…

  48. FatChipGaming13

    I wanted an intro just now, 91 Bloody pounds, Screw that, I’m only 13.

  49. JWDoesTech

    You sir, are a god. Thanks so much!

  50. Amy

    I remember you having a video series with Yaro. Are these videos still around? I want to refer some people to specific ones such as How To Capture And Record Your First Video. These were very good!

    thank you.

  51. Don Jones

    Awesome Gideon. Thanks so much.
