How to: Create Great Thumbnails for Your YouTube Channel using iPad ComicLife Workflow

Today we show our method of making thumbnails for our YouTube channel while on the go using PlasQ's Comic Life app o my iPad. The ability to record the screen of our iPad's now directly into Quicktime is a huge help in making this video tho I could not for the life of me get to record audio at the same time. So I loaded the Video into Final Cut Pro X and used the Voice Over option with my Audio Technica ATR-2500 USB Large Diaphragm Condensor Mic. Now that I've found this recording method so simple I believe I'll be doing more in future on GarageBand and various games and more Please Subscribe to our channel here and our Sister Channel Mad Mohawk Films http://www.youtube.com/madmohawkgaming Visit our Website at http://www.madmohawkfilms.com Visit our Store at http:/store.madmohawkfilms.com your purchases help keep us making videos.

Mortal Kombat Revisited at Mad Mohawk Gaming

Mortal Kombat Revisited at Mad Mohawk Gaming now that we have some higher level characters and even Ermac a Gold Card who rips thru enemies like a hot knife through butter. I love the ALLY Coins and Alliance Packs you buy with them. Faction Wars also give some excellent Loot. This is a FUN FUN Game, I wonder if on newer generation iPad's if the load times are faster than on my first generation iPad mini. I hope so.

Tarot and Numerology First Look at Mad Mohawk Gaming

Tarot and Numerology First Look at Mad Mohawk Gaming, we take a look at another Digital Divination app . This one does Numerology as well as Tarot. The biggest draw this app has that I see is the fact that you can create your own custom decks and even possibly have the deck sold thru the app. There's so many talented artists out there that this is an awesome idea in my opinion. This app offers the ability to enlist a person to give you a Tarot reading based on what you draw in the app I apologize for the backgound noise, I forgot I had a large fan running nearby and the Large Diaphragm Condensor Mic I was using picked it up rather well alas. Not bad enough to make my Voice Over unintelligible but certainly noticeable. Please give this video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it, also please subscribe for more videos of this sort.

MXL 770 microphone on Sony A7 via iRig Pre

MXL 770 on Sony A7 via iRig Pre test , today we give this combination a listen and see how good, bad or UGLy it sounds. I've been pretty happy thus far with the MXL microphones I've used thus far but you never know when a lemon will sneak in. I got this mic via a bulk buy using the website MassDrop, saved a BUNDLe off of Sam Ash's SALE PRICE of $118 snagging it for a paltry $65 tho to be honest I've seen it on Amazon for about $80. They seem to have a myriad of different goodies there so likely this won't be my last purchase from them. Nope NOT being paid by them, just a Happy Pappy. The more $$ I can keep in my pocket when I buy stuff the better. Checkout our Store at http://store.madmohawkfilms.com as well as our Blog at http://blog.madmohawkfilms and of course our Home on the Web at http://www.madmohawkfilms.com Thanks to the City of Montreal for the recent hospitality and espescially to the friendly folks in the Gay Village in Montreal.

Tiny Troopers Zombies First Look at Mad Mohawk Gaming

Tiny Troopers Zombies First Look at Mad Mohawk Gaming. Let me get this out of the way , I LOVE The Zombie Genre from George Romero's Night of the Living Dead to AMC's The Walking Dead and even the silly Sean of the Dead , BUT I never fare well against them in games. I love the Call of Duty franchise, but am pathetic fighting Zombie hordes in it. So please excuse my poor Zombie fighting skills in Tiny Troopers. All in all a fun game, the Cartoony zombies are comical, the Zombie chickens annoying. Maybe I'll fare better with a Bluetooth mouse or other gaming controller maybe not :-) I miss Night of the Living Dead's shambling reanimated corpses, that was a simpler time eh? I guess I could always go to The Winchester and drown my sorrows in a Pint eh?

Celtic Cross Tarot Spread for August 2015 at Mad Mohawk Gaming

Celtic Tarot Spread for August 2015, We make a departure from our usual Tarot App adventures and show a deck I've had for 30 ish years or so. The Prediction Deck , Designed by Bernard Stringer and Illustrated by Peter Richardson. From Aquarian Press , Wellingborough Northhamptonshire. I do a quick Celtic Cross, I TRY to abstain from saying anything regarding interpertation but I'm a BLABBER Mouth so pardon a fool :-) Unlike my Filmmaking Gear Video's I really saw no need to have my Pretty Face in the image as the Cards are what are important not some babbling nutjob, namely me. I'll be throwing more and more Tarot Decks in the mix on Tuesdays along with any nice IOS apps for Tarot and Divination I come across.

Asahi Pentax 110 24mm F2.8 on the Sony A7 in Crop and Full Frame mode

Going back into the Vintage Vault, trying out the Sony A7 with an old Asahi Pentax-110 24mm F2.8 lens. We shot in both Crop mode and Full Frame mode and the Full Frame mode vignette's suprsingly little. The Vignette is even less noticeable once we converted to 2.35:1 Aspect ratio. Not bad for a $30 or so Vintage lens. Shot the audio direct into the A7 using my Rode SmartLav+ into a converter. I used a single Neewer CN-160 LED light panel.

WW2 Wings of Duty Revisited at Mad Mohawk Gaming

World War II Wings of Duty revisited at Mad Mohawk Gaming, the Developers were kind enough to contact me and point out a few things to me as well as let me know there was an update to the game. MUCH MUCH Happier with it now. When I crash now it's my fault I'm not simply falling out of the sky. In this video I fly a good 6-7 minutes before I plunge myself into the ocean and it's my own fault i hit the water. Have a look , the graphics are good, the control is pretty smooth and they inform me that later in the game other members of the Axis and Allies are in the game as well. I used to LOVE watching Black Sheep Squadron with Robert Conrad as Pappy Boyington each week when I was a wee lad. Also enjoyed his stint in The Wild Wild West too. Did NOT enjoy Will Smith remake of it alas, not even gorgeous Salma Hayek could save that one for me.
