In spring of 2021, I would double down on work in video editing, primarily specializing in stream highlights for gaming channels on Twitch and YouTube. I primarily acted as a "ghost" editor, who would be charge a rate per hour of footage which I would trim down and edit to try and create compelling, engaging, or otherwise entertaining content. For the most part, I would not be directly credited or affiliated with my work.
Linked below is my portfolio playlist of public videos that I have worked on, including my own personal project, LegendDari, which covers topics of internet culture, video gaming, and anything else on my mind.
In late 2021, I would move from working for others and begin to plan out my own video essays and digital video pieces under the name of LegendDari. I attempted to carefully conceive of a cohesive and unified, minimalistic branding that would span across the entire experience of the channel.
It took a while to get things finally rolling, because I try to be fairly detailed in the planning and research that goes into creating my videos. While I try to remain vigilant and professional in the creation process, I also try to imbue a more casual, anecdotal, or conversational tone in my works. I don't necessarily want to rub off as an absolute authority, but I also do not want to be poorly prepared or misinformed in the case that a video takes off.
As it currently stands, my most popular video has amassed over 40K views within the span of a week. Relatively little in the grand scheme of things, but also a considerable amount for a 'nobody' channel that hardly even existed previously.
