Welcome

This is my personal website. So what you see here are just the things that I like to create. As you can see below, I am having fun making videos and it looks like I am getting better at it every day, but there’s still much to learn. It is just one of my hobbies that I try to incorporate with my other hobbies whenever possible.

Greatest hits and personal favorites

I have made quite a few videos by now, here’s some personal favorites and some that people actually watched.



This must be one of my favorite so far. Too bad I can’t afford making more like these every day. :D





“Cruising the red rocks” takes you on a drive up Red Rock Scenic Byway (SR-179). A favorite because it is one of my favorite places in the world.





“Made in America” mostly takes place in Village of Oak Creek, AZ with a small detour to La Jolla, San Diego and Santa Monica, Los Angeles. This is one of my favorites because I really like how it turned out





“The record low water level at Lake Mead” was an idea I came up with while planning a small vacation by myself and it ended up getting a lot of views (compared to what I am used to). So I made a sequel half a year later when I went back, and it also got a lot of views.




  “Artsy Fartsy 4K Monster Goodness” is a compilation of a number of timelapse shots from a number of places.






34000 views and 100 likes, insane. Not entirely sure what I did right. :) But it was fun to make.

YouTube downgrades my channel


YouTube no longer wants me as a part of their "Partner Program", well I guess I will have to learn how to live without those $0,50 a day. .:D  I enabled it to see what it was about, so, oh well.

——————

Today we are announcing changes to the YouTube Partner Program (YPP). While our goal remains to keep the YPP open to as many channels as possible, we recognize we need more safeguards in place to protect creator revenue across the YouTube ecosystem.

What's Changing

Under the new eligibility requirements announced today, your YouTube channel, Martin J, is no longer eligible for monetization because it doesn’t meet the new threshold of 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. As a result, your channel will lose access to all monetization tools and features associated with the YouTube Partner Program on February 20, 2018 unless you surpass this threshold in the next 30 days. Accordingly, this email serves as 30 days notice that your YouTube Partner Program terms are terminated.

One of YouTube’s core values is to provide anyone the opportunity to earn money from a thriving channel. Creators who haven’t yet reached this new threshold can continue to benefit from our Creator Academy, our Help Center, and all the resources on the Creator Site to grow their channels. Once your channel reaches the new threshold, it will be reviewed to make sure it adheres to our policies and guidelines, and if so, monetization will be re-enabled.

5 hours of scenic roads, and some other roads as well.

5 hours of driving. Inspired by the screen saver on my Apple TV, I decided to make one long video of driving so I could have it running in the background as a live painting.

I have kept the original sound. :)

The camera mounts that I use

In this video I take a look and review the camera mounts I use at home and when traveling. I have included clips and time lapse shots of where I have used them and at the end of the video, I show the slider / dolly from Revolve Camera.



Solar Power

I have a photovoltaic installation on my roof and I keep a close eye on it. I have written a few small programs in Python to log data into a database and display some of it. This is a live graph of the output for the last 24 hours. Updated every 10 minutes between 05 and 22. Click on graph  below for more detailed information.
