So I occasionally post random fpvods and commentary/highlight stuff to my youtube channel. I haven't done shit in months (haven't had time) but recently I started recording random ladder games (at C+ level currently) I enjoy doing instructional commentary to help lower level players out (aiming for solid c and under level instruction) and other little starcraft highlight stuff... I've gotten fairly positive feedback from my work. But I digress- this is not the primary purpose of my blog update here tonight.
Onto what I actually wanted to talk about...
I'm playing this one game a few nights ago and after 17 minutes or so of recording the game first person I accidentally stop the screen capture when he pauses the game. Instead of scrapping the project what I decided to do was ALSO record a full video of the replay and commentate that and sort of mix it into the fpvod recording. The result I feel is something a tad out of the norm. It takes MUCH more work than just doing an fpvod with commentary (you have to do basically 2 full videos for one) but it does provide an interesting alternative to the standard fpvod or a plain replay analysis.
I'd like to get TL's opinion on this, what works well here, what doesn't? Is it annoying to be flipping between an observer moving around and fpvod of the player? Is it hardly noticeable? I just added little transitions when it cuts from replay footage to fpvod footage and also added some music in the background. Again much more work edit wise but possibly a much more enjoyable final viewing product. I love trying out new ideas and mixing stuff up a bit!
I'm interested as to what people think considering this is not a method used often (as far as I know) from typical fpvoders.

You see it often during live OGN/MBC broadcasts like they will flip to the fpvod of a player for a short time, I think it helps give an fpvod a little more life. But it is much more work because you have to go through a full editing process for each video.
I didn't really intend to grab this many influx of subscribers (over 50 in the past 2 days lol) Don't expect a whole bunch of stuff on a regular basis, I'm super busy with work, 20 hours a week and full class load at univ leaves not much time for making videos after all the playing I try to get in. Plus I'm working on a super secret massive epic project that should rival 7 years in 7 minutes magnitude, so I have a ton of stuff going on right now.
