  • Sorry, but these were boring having someone read text while stills rolled by.

      @Bob Suruncle: Watch the last one. 🙂 We are working towards more advanced graphics and doing more like the last one as well, but it is insanely expensive to do so on the former, and time consuming on the latter. We actually got several quotes from graphics companies who work on other popular YouTube channels that do the style of visuals we want (and seemingly have plenty of business to keep their graphics companies going) that quoted in the range of $20K-$60K per video with the audio you see in these videos! PER VIDEO! Thankfully, there are cheaper options, but cheaper isn’t anywhere close to cheap. It’s still insanely expensive. We’ll get there though as the channel grows. 🙂
