I Have A YouTube Channel!

My focus has been offering graphic design and small business tips

but I’m open to experimenting with lifestyle features, too. I’ve tried a mukbang video where I ate and reviewed White Castle’s Impossible Slider in response to the growing Impossible Foods craze. I’ve also shared my deepest feelings about Growing Up Filipino American to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in May.

My goal is weekly uploads every Sunday.

I’ve been keeping it up so far with 9 videos in, all of which you can watch below. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the discipline of keeping up with a weekly upload.

I’ve also really been loving the steep learning curve diving into the world of video!

I’ve worked with iMovie in the past, but taking strong recommendation from my pro editor/director brother, C.J. Arellano, I transitioned to Adobe Premiere Pro CC, which was SUPER intimidating at first, but now we’re like familiar friends getting to know one another over frequent in-depth life discussions over a series of parties that we just happen to keep getting invited to.

Here are all my videos so far!

VIDEO: ‘Reels on Wheels’ Premiere

In my last blog post,

I introduced you to my life-long friend, comic book artist, illustrator, and author and all-around awesome human being, Justin Castaneda. One of the reasons we’re such great friends is that we enjoy watching Hollywood blockbuster movies and talking about them.

So we came up with the idea of Reels on Wheels,

a YouTube road show where we talk movie expectations on our way to see it and review the movie on our ride back. Here’s the deal: Justin and I approach our reviews as fans. We ain’t no professional film critics, boo! We’re just your average, nerdy Hollywood film-gobbling movie viewer.

We started with the movie that officially started the 2016 summer movie season*: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’

At the time of filming this, we had not yet solidified our rating system, but as of writing this blog post, we now have one: Reels -OR- Wheels? Reels: Go see it! Wheels: [tires screeching and peeling away] Save yourself and don’t see it.

Having been out for over a week now, the ‘Batman v Superman’ is divisive.

If you haven’t seen it already, should you go see it? Should you save your cizzash?

Justin and I weigh in here, but let me know what you thought of the movie by commenting below! And don’t forget to subscribe to Justin’s YouTube channel to keep up with future episodes of Reels on Wheels.

Our next movie? Captain America: Civil War, which hits theaters May 6.

*The summer movie season starts earlier and earlier every few years. We have May-premiering ‘Spider-Man’ in 2002 to thank for starting that trend.
