Creating a Life using Youtube with Michael Venn

Play

Sometimes we feel limited to only a few choices in life. We need to go to this school, get this degree, and take the best paying job we can find. Creating a life on your own terms seems far fetched. However, my friends... there ARE people out in the world who are able to use their gifts and talents in unconventional ways and live a life free and in control of their time.

I was super honored to connect with Michael Venn, and incredible Youtuber, English teacher, juggler, actor, (etc., etc.) about how he has used platforms like YouTube to build a brand and business around the kind of life that he wanted to live. I have been following Michael for a couple of years now and it was so cool to hear in his own words how he has shaped his career, his best Youtube tips, and a word of encouragement to listeners that it is “never too late.”

Topics Discussed:

  • How he transitioned from “no one is watching these videos” to seeing traction.
  • Is it too late to start on Youtube?
  • Creating an unconventional career on your own terms.

Michael Venn - Award winning/Emmy nominated NH filmmaker

Play
Read more
New Hampshire is home to an astounding group of incredibly talented and diverse individuals. And Michael Venn is certainly to be named among them.
Quentin Tarantino is quoted as saying "I never went to film schools, I went to films."
That quote describes the filmmaking journey Michael over the last 9 years. From NEVER having made a film or taken a single filmmaking class to creating an award winning film now seen around the world, his story arc is indeed impressive.
In this episode, he sits with us and speaks about his beginnings 9yrs ago, the impact the New Hampshire Film Festival had on him and how he decided to just take the plunge and "just do it".
He talks about the extreme importance of a good producer, the producers role in filmmaking and why a good producers "eye" is critical.
We learn how his baptism by fire came when he ended up having to direct and edit his own film knowing that 900 people were going to pay to see the final product. No pressure there.
He talks about what "happy accidents" are during the filming process, why comic books are storyboards just sitting there ready to be made into films and the thrill of how a local guy from Portsmouth, NH with no filmmaking background is showing others how it can be done.

Today's Guest: Michael Venn, Multi-passionate Entrepreneur

Michael began his teaching career back in 2009 when he traveled to Italy to teach English as a second language. Since then he's been teaching off-and-on, sometimes as a teacher, sometimes not.

Nowadays Michael splits his work time between teaching ESL Online, working as a touring puppeteer, hosting tours on Air BnB, and creating videos for YouTube.

Summary

Michael Venn isn't a teacher in the traditional sense, but he is one at heart.  With his background in drama, he's been teaching people throughout his career and isn't slowing down anytime soon.

He's had multiple side gigs, from teaching English oversees, to lemonade stand owner (this wasn't your neighborhood lemonade stand), to touring as a puppeteer, Michael has taken something from each of his experiences and learned how to spot opportunities many of us miss.

Key Takeaways
  • Opportunities are everywhere
  • Look on the periphery of what everyone else is doing and find your own niche
  • It's okay to let go of businesses for other, better possibilities
  • The skills you learn in one venture will stay with you in everything else you do

My guest on this episode is Michael Venn. Michael is a director, writer, producer and content creator whose background in music led him into the film world. He made his writing and directorial debut in 2010 with the short film “Dark Scribbles”, which premiered in the short film corner at the 2010 Festival De Cannes and was an official selection at film festivals across the country.

In 2012, Michael went on to produce and co­-direct the award-winning feature documentary “In Danger of Being Discovered”. In 2014, he wrote and directed a series of 4 music videos for the Grammy Ballot nominated singer/songwriter Lizzy Marella. He was nominated for a regional Emmy® at the 39th Boson/New England Emmy Awards for the PSA “It’s Time. Let’s Talk.” in 2017 Michael won the New Hampshire Filmmaker of the year award at the New Hampshire Film Festival.

Michael’s current project is the feature documentary film “The Heroin Effect” (Now available on Amazon, iTunes and GooglePlay), which was inspired by the opioid crisis that is currently plaguing the country.

The Heroin Effect (blog post excerpt) -

"I am not an addict. I am not in recovery. I don't have a personal connection to the opioid crisis, or at least that's what I thought before the production of The Heroin Effect. Three and a half years ago I started filming a documentary film about the opioid epidemic. And that process changed not only my perception of a disease, but it also made me want to create a film that would do the same for others by letting the characters in the film share their stories in their own words."

This is an amazing film, unlike any other which focuses on the current addiction crisis. I highly recommend this fantastic piece of work!
