NomadicGaijin: The Travel Creator IRL Streaming Global Adventures by Car, Bike, Drone, and Camel | Speedify LIVE
November 3, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
On the 148th episode of Speedify LIVE we take yet another look into the world of livestreaming in Japan, with IRL Traver Streamer and Youtuber, Luke, aka NomadicGaijin.
We talk about cultural differences, how IRL streaming and tech has evolved over time, get some advice on IRL streaming best practices, and learn how streaming content can translate into post-production content.
Here are our 5 takeaways from our chat with NomadicGaijin:
- NomadicGaijin’s setup is a pretty elaborate one, so much so that he’s not the one who put it together! He uses a bag set up with multiple batteries, plugged into a small developer computer box, using two routers, and a Sony Action Cam which he can mount on his shoulder, bike or car’s dashboard. He also uses a DJI Mini 3 Pro drone, and rotates between DJI mics and the Rode Go II microphones.
- Luke says that IRL streaming tech has changed a lot over time: newer phones have better stability and better wireless capabilities, but they have their drawbacks when it comes to long streams or hot weather as they easily overheat. He says his backpack setup allows him to stream for 10-16 hours at a time without overheating!
- When it comes to post-produced content, NomadicGaijin says he doesn’t really do it. He says that, for one, it takes a lot of time to edit videos from a stream, and while he does want to save his streams for the future, but doesn’t want his YouTube channel to be about his Twitch streams. He wants to have different content with different styles on each platform.
- We get some very useful advice for beginner IRL streamers: when you’re first beginning, you need to be okay with streaming to one or two people for a while. Be okay with taking your time and growing your community, and don’t worry about it. Just do the content that you want to create.
- Luke says that, right now, the best tool to build a community is Discord. He says that while many YouTubers still don’t do it, Discord has become an important part of content creation, providing a space to actually talk to your viewers, and form a good, solid community.
For me, I do exactly what I want and I grow a channel that I enjoy, and I look forward to streaming and making content every day. So I would just say, have some passion in what you do and it's okay to take time to grow a channel. You don’t need instant success.
