If you don't already know Becca, I asked her some questions for you to get to know her a bit better:
1. There are many different reasons why people decide to share content on YouTube. What first inspired you to make videos?
The channel that I use now (Becca W) I started 4 years ago because I missed making videos, as one of my friends (Emily Anna) had recently started her own channel and watching her videos made me miss filming. Prior to this channel, I had another channel which has been active for eleven years! That one started because I really enjoyed editing fans videos, cringy I know! Five years later, my friend (RubySmilesLikeANerd) had started her own channel where she would sit and talk about things in front of the camera. I thought that looked like fun so I gave it a go. Of course, back then, I was a very shy girl with a very short, unflattering haircut and gross glasses, so you can imagine my videos weren't that great! A few more years after that, at about 17, I started Becca W (back then Becca's Blog) and made beauty videos. Again, I wasn't that great at them and I was still a bit awkward in front of the camera, but practice makes perfect. Nowadays I make weekly vlogs, which has only started this year but I'm really enjoying it! So I guess my reasoning for starting YouTube was because of my friends.
2. University can be quite the experience! What has been your favourite part of your course so far?
I am currently in my third year of university, studying Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne in London. One of my favourite aspects of the course is just how many films you actually get to make during your time there! In the first term alone, we made four films! That's one every two weeks! And for my first term of third year we had to make a film every week, eleven films in total! It's been crazy and a lot of hard work, but also a lot of fun too!
3. What would you say the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome this year has been?
4. Living in London must be incredibly exciting. If you could live anywhere in the world, would you still choose London or another place?
5. What is your biggest piece of advice for someone wanting to get started in the film industry?
6. Being a part of a YouTube community is one of the best parts of creating content. What has been your favourite trip or meetup you’ve ever had with your YouTube squad?
7. Your content is varied on your channel, covering many types of videos. Do you have a favourite sort to film?
8. If you could collaborate with any form of content creator (e.g. a film director, an actor, youtuber etc…) who would you pick and what would you work on with them?
9. You clearly have a very creative mind. What have you found is the best way to gain inspiration and beat a creative block?
10. Do you have a goal you’re hoping to have achieved by the end of 2018?
Thank you very much for reading this and thank you very much Becca for answering these questions and featuring on my blog. I hope you love Becca just as much as I do,
