So everything has been purchased except the large key lights, but those aren't needed to start doing a few live streams before I'm comfortable enough to do proper videos.
Soooooo I just need a couple of things: A logo, an overlay screen (maybe) and a bit of a jingle. The last I'll handle myself as I used to be in a band, so I'll record a few little things to avoid "dead air". As for graphic design though... I have very little experience. The Mr. Techtician logo is currently a B&W rook (chess piece) with glasses and a tie - not exactly dazzling.
So what would you guys suggest for a logo or overlay screen (the latter I've heard is necessary for in-between camera angles for videos and as a prep / waiting room screen before a stream starts) ? I'm looking around Fiverr but there are tons and tons of artists (so I don't know who to pick) and all, I believe, would at least need some sort of concept beforehand. Throw out anything you've got folks!
I'm not enough of a youtube fan to really have any suggestions. There's only about 4 channels I check out regularly, I would say you're probably as well of to start off right away even if the bells and whistles take a while.
Most channels have an obvious curve where you can see the production and polish is lower in early videos so I wouldn't let the logo, jingle or anything stop you. Get producing content first and you'll get an idea of works better and worse as you go.
