Rank #1: Daily FRO 273: I REALLY MESSED UP BAD...It's honestly all my FAULT
This is the Daily FRO for August 7th 2019.
So I really messed up today. I deleted a video from YouTube that I thought was doing really bad but in fact I was getting false readings and it turns out it was probably doing really really well.
In my desire to want my video to do well (which it was but I didn't think it was), I actually ended up being the reason why it wont do well.
Here's what happened.

Rank #5: Daily FRO 272: HE NEEDED A REALITY CHECK! That's what he got
This is the Daily FRO for August 3rd 2019.
I got a txt from Sam Green (if you're not sure who he is, I explain it in the podcast). He asked me what I think about a specific cinema camera. I asked him why and he proceeded to tell me he's not happy with the video color from his Sony a7 III.
At that point, I needed to have a little talking to with Sam. There's NOTHING I repeat NOTHING wrong with the color of his camera. It's his issue and not something that's solved because he buys something more expensive.
