Short about you: I’m a 16 year old guy who enjoys making videos to entertain people. I’ve been on YouTube for 4 years and fell in love with the idea of sharing my ideas with people across the world. YouTube has opened the doors to so many different opportunities and I’ve made a lot of friends along the way. Along with video making, I run cross country, drink lots of green tea and hope to study graphic design and film making in college. (and my best friend’s name is Taylor)
Q: When did you start making videos?
A: Hard to say, for the internet, 3 years ago. In general, I started when I was 7 or 8.
Q: How old were you when you started making your videos?
A: For youtube, I was about 12. For SlyFoxComedy, last year.
Q: How do you make your videos? Any tips to others? Software you use?
A: I film them with a Canon Rebel T2i (Most youtubers either have one or drool over one) and edit with Final Cut Express and Aftereffects CS5.
Q: Why did you make your videos? Any influences?
A: To get noticed, and to entertain people. My influences are Tim and Eric from the Awesome Show.
Q: How long did it take you to become “famous” or get a lot of views/subscribers?
A: I’m definitely not famous by any means, but I got to where I am now in about a year and a half.
Q: What is the best thing about being a “Popular YouTuber”?
A: Getting comments on my videos is the most gratifying part. Good (and plentiful) feedback is what every youtuber strives for.
Q: What is the worst thing about being a “Popular YouTuber”?
A: There isn’t really a “worst thing” for me at this point in my youtube career, but I’ll definitely get back to you.
Q: If you could only subscribe to one person on YouTube, who would it be?
A: That’s a hard one, but I’d have to say… MagicHugs
Q: Do the people you see often (eg: Friends, Family, Citizens of your town…) know that you’re on YouTube/YouTube famous?
A: Yes, very much so.
Q: What is the best thing that has happened since being on YouTube?
A: I’ve met a lot of friends on youtube. They are great.
Q: Do you have any advice/tips for fans/people that look up to you?
A: If you ever want to be famous on a popular website, it is essential that you work very very hard. Cheating gets you nowhere.
Q: Do you read ALL your comments/messages?
A: As I get very few comments and messages, I do read all of them. I’m sure if I got 1,000 a video rather than 50, it’d be a bit more challenging.
Q: If you have a number/letter in your username, what does it stand for?
A: I don’t.
Q: Do you have a girlfriend or is it personal?
A: I don’t have a girlfriend. It’s probably not personal.
Q: What do you look for in girls?
A: They need to be nice, and not awkward. Because awkward and awkward is a deadly combination… Well… not deadly, just awkward.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do when you’re bored?
A: Talk to my friends on Skype, no question.
Q: What is your favorite thing to do with your friends?
A: Go on insane road trips. Eat food.
Q: What do you see yourself doing in 10-15 years?
A: Hopefully either making films, designing for a living, or at least creating something every day. I don’t want my creativity to die.
Q: How did you choose your username?
A: When I was in 5th grade, my friends and I wanted to start up a video production group, and my friend Sam came up with the name “Sly Fox Productions”. We’ve kept the name ever since… I don’t exactly know why, but we did.
Q: Anything else you want to tell us?
A: My favorite fruit is grapefruit.
