Hello forum friends! It's been a while since I last posted here, for which I apologize.
After SMB Episode 75, we were at a bit of a loss on where to take the Richalvarez channel. SMB had been the driving force behind the Richalvarez Channel since 2007, so we weren't really sure where to go. We had some fun experimenting with things this summer, such as introducing the Wiki Richie series. The thing is, I just wasn't enjoying it... It took me a while, but I finally figured it out why.
With SMB, I was telling a story through the cinematography. With Wiki Richie, it was all just picture animations in editing. I missed crafting narratives with a camera. And that's when it dawned on me that this was a new era for the Richalvarez channel, which meant it was time for a change. We decided to invest in a Cannon T3i, which is a very beautiful camera. The first video we filmed with that camera was Nintendo Style, which has been very well received thanks to you wonderful fans. However, we were using 1 lens that we borrowed from a friend, so we were not yet using the T3i’s full potential. Recently afterwards, we invested in 2 lenses of our own, which brings me to the purpose of this post.
Today, I am very pleased to present you with a brand new sketch video. We put a lot of effort into the production and editing, which shows in the final result. I think it's safe to say we now have a clearer vision for the Richalvarez channel. We’d like to focus on sketch comedy, music video parodies, and the occasional SMB spin-off or Video Game related sketch. I would just like to say thank you, to those of you who are still here, for sticking with us.
Anyway, I’ve included a link to the video below. After you watch it, let me know what you think. Do you like the look of the new camera? Did you enjoy the editing? Did you like the humor? Any and all feedback is encouraged. And if you guys have any clever idea for future sketches, I’d love to hear them.
Here’s the video.
