In my off time I have been testing out a few things in preparation for this coming weekend. What’s coming this weekend you ask? I am going to record at least one video for YouTube of my playing a retro video game. I still have not decided on the game I will feature, possibly an Atari 2600 game but more likely a C64 game.
Aside from getting familiar with the recording software I plan to use (ReLive) and a new headset I bought, I decided I needed to create a nice intro graphic for my videos.
Upstairs Room Software Presents!
I have lacking skills for creating anything fancier than what you see below. Maybe at some point down the road I will get my second oldest step-daughter, who has a degree in graphic design, make me something awesome.
But for now… here we go:
The font used is one from the mid 1980s that I managed to find for free online. It’s called “Johnny Fever“. Being that I used to watch a show as a kid in the early 80s called “WKRP In Cinncinati“, I know who Johnny Fever is.
Sorry, I don’t have any intro music just yet, but I am looking for some cool 8 bit tunes to introduce new videos.
I am planning on working on that tonight.
