Questions Answers
Hey Marques! What was the weirdest fan encounter you've had? Alright so I went to an ultimate tournament with my college team a couple of weeks ago in another state. We're having a team dinner at some random diner we found, and I'm checking Twitter as we wait for our food.
I see a tweet that says something like "Oh, I didn't know you were on this campus. Cool." from a name I don't recognize. I assume it's someone who saw me while we were playing Ultimate. Neat. I reply that he should've said hi.
I get a reply minutes later - "didn't want to disturb you, seems like you're with a big group"
Wait what? Now? Right now? Did this person just see me?
Long story short, 5 minutes later I'm shaking hands with this dude in the diner because he saw us walking in. Not even a weird encounter, just a weird way for it to happen haha.
What is your favourite keyboard? Don't hurt me for this. I love my Apple keyboard. It's actually a Colorware model, so it's jet black with white letters.
I've tried mechanical keyboards (red and brown switches) but never stayed more than a few months. I just type (essays) way faster on the chicklet keys with barely any travel. Plus it's super compact and I can move it off the desk when I need to shoot a video there.
Have you tried topre switches? Nope. Should I?
When did you know that your Youtube channel would take off? 2: At this point I have the flexibility to do whatever interests me - right now it happens to be tech video on YouTube, but that could change.
What is the video you are most proud of? Ooh, tough call. There are a few special ones, but I think the relatively "not-so-special" RX100 MKIII review (Link to youtu.be is tops because it's the first video I shot with my current camera, and I got a lot of interesting shots, and I think it unlocked a lot of creative stuff that I've been trying in videos since.
In terms of pure visuals? iPhone 6 Plus Review: Link to youtu.be
Your perfect phone video looked cool! That was a lot of fun! Props to The Verge for the awesome animation work that really made the whole video. I'll be doing more stuff like that (I suck at animation) with them when we get the chance.
Would camera did you use before your C 100? Canon's 5D MKIII Canon 60D Canon t2i Sanyo Xacti CG10 HP Pavilion dv7t webcam.
Could you explain more about your video setup? What type of camera do you use? What software do you use for editing? Is it just you shooting or do you have help? I'm shooting with a RED Epic Dragon (CF) and 90% of the time I'm rocking the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8. That glass is one of my favorite pieces of tech in a long time.
I edit with the Adobe suite - Premiere for most of the editing & coloring, and After Effects once in a while for some motion tracking or vfx.
I'm the camera man, lighting, set design... everything :]
Do you learn all of this as you go along, gradually? Or was/were there a point(s) in your life where you sat down and said, "I'm gonna up my game" ? I think that after almost every video I upload.
I mostly just wanted to say thank you for the honesty, thoughtfulness and integrity. Design is hard. I can't draw.
No tech questions, it what is you long term plan? Do you see yourself doing reviews at 40? will you design tech? Actually producing that tech is expensive. It's a whole 'nother ballgame.
Also what are you going to do with you business degree? The "Dream smartphone" stuff and concepts like that are the closest I've come to designing tech. Stuff like that is fun.
Best ultimate player you've ever had the pleasure of guarding? I got to guard Mark Lloyd for a few points in Toronto. He didn't do much those points, so I feel like I held my own :]
Will Garden State be back better than ever next season? GSU will be back better than ever every season.
Favorite post tournament meal? Steak.
Do you think the MLU has what it takes to outlast the AUDL, and establish itself as a more major player? Hard to tell! Their strategies are very different, and I'm curious which one has the advantage. My decision on who to play for isn't about the leagues as much as the teams, though. I want to play for the best team I can.
Just 2 questions: What is the phone you're currently using as your daily driver and what's your all time favorite phone? I was asked for my favorite phone of ALL TIME the other day, and I went with the original Moto DROID. Something about its timing, with the ad campaign and the new OS... Exciting stuff! I'll never forget that unboxing.
Hey Marques! Huge fan of your videos. How did the unmistakable "Hey whatisup guys" intro become a thing? Slow evolution, actually. I started by trying to have something to say near the beginning of every video that reminded people that I'd done other videos. So it started with something much longer like "Hey what's up guys, Marques Brownlee here back with another HD video"
Thanks for your great work. How will you maintain your sincerity and journalistic integrity as your popularity explodes? Have you given any thought to signing an ethics pledge? I'll say "same way I have since the beginning." I talk about things from the perspective of the consumer - mostly because that's what I am. A guy going out and buying things and sharing that experience with the viewer. Nothing should change that, but if it ever does, I'll absolutely make it known.
Do you purchase all the hardware you review? Almost all of it is purchased by me, yeah.
What was the most disappointing gadget / piece of tech you have ever bought? Most disappointing piece of tech I've ever bought? Geez. I don't remember any because I've blocked them all out of my mind haha.
I know you are graduating in business. Have you heard of dogecoins? What is you opinion on digital currencies and it's promises for the tech world? I've heard of dogecoins and bitcoins and all these other virtual currencies. I haven't had a reason to use any of them yet, but I'm all ears.
I'm deeply curious, what are your thoughts on Linus Tech Tips? Linus is the man. Met him at CES last year and we've been in touch since. He cranks out videos like no tomorrow, which is awesome.
He's the only one that makes me honestly consider the merits of having a crew or partner working alongside to make videos.
Hello Marques, really fond of your work. From your twitter account, “Fun fact: I've never accepted money to alter any video I've ever made in any way.”. I won't name any, but yeah it happens all the time. Check out almost any other channel doing videos consistently. There's always sponsorships, interruptions, ad-reads, etc.
Can you name some companies that did offer you money? Is that common? I don't do those because I'm not a fan of watching them. My #1 goal is to make videos that I'd want to watch.
You started out reviewing things you happened to have or you bought for yourself. How and when did you decide to buy something just (or especially) to review it? How did your parents react to that, assuming you were still pretty young? The thing is - I didn't start out going out of my way to buy things to review. I bought things that I was going to use anyway, then decided to do a review on them after the fact.
It started with a laptop that I bought. I bought it for myself for school, then made about 40 videos on it!
What computer do you use now? 8-core Mac Pro. Link to i.imgur.com
Where do you see the mobile computing world moving in the next 2-3 years? We all know how prevalent smartphones are in today's culture, but seeing projects like the Sharp Aquos Crystal, Yotaphone 2, and Ubuntu Edge get me excited about overall phone design, innovation, and the prospect of mobile and desktop computing in one device. Any ideas on what the more immediate future might hold? The move to higher-res displays seem to have divided the tech community. Some argue that the negatives (specifically the hit to battery life) greatly outweigh the positives. Another argument is that they're pointless on anything smaller than a ~5.7ish" screen (which is considered a large phone). What do you think? Are 2K/4K screens worth it? I would argue that the introduction of the Moto G and the Moto E have done wonders for Android adoption (at least in the US). These are great phones, especially considering the price. Where would you like to see Moto headed next, especially considering the transfer in ownership to Lenovo? Mobile has been making phones bigger and bigger over the past few years, and I think in the next 2-3 years that finally halts. Phones can't get much bigger. We say this every year, but... for real this time. - We see a similar polarization every time a new standard comes around in tech. I don't think this one is any different - we didn't "need" 1080p displays in phones 2 years ago, and we certainly don't "need" QHD displays in phones now. But they're still better, and past this first generation of devices, I think it'll be worth it. - Yep, Moto G and Moto E are some of Moto's best selling phones ever. I don't want to speak for their future, but they're kinda killing it right now and I hope they don't lose their swagger. - Android: I want to see another graphics focus. Project Butter v2. iOS: I want to see widget on my homescreen. Is that too much to ask?
