Starting in August 2020, I have launched my own YouTube and Twitch platforms. Donning the new name HeyItsMonarch, I have been creating videos based on gameplay footage from my streams and sessions online with friends. While my main platform is Twitch, all of the magic and editing can be seen on my Youtube channel. Videography is a very important skill to have in this profession, and I have been using this pastime to work and improve on my skills. I try to learn as much as I can about each division of graphic design, and videography was a topic I never truly dove into until this year. Prior to this, I had very minor experience in Adobe Premiere Pro, and the learning process has been a joy. Since starting my channels, I have picked up proficient/intermediate skill levels in Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, and have even been recognized by Campus Movie Fest as a 2020 November Jury Winner for my short film "Momo" (2020). The film will be competing in Nationals for Best Comedy and Best Action film. 

Here is a sneak peak of some of the content on my YouTube Channel!

Prior to this year, my main platform of content had been Instagram. Looking to make a leap into bigger and better things, I found my new home on Twitch. I had always known of the platform, but the fear of video editing and broadcasting live had kept me away. Starting this year, I have decided to take that leap and join the Twitch community, and I have not looked back since. I have met some fantastic people and enjoy every second I'm live. The platform has taught me a lot about managing my own content and keeping an audience entertained. Currently, I am managing a 30 team wide basketball league where 30 real-life participants manage their own franchise with me live on stream. It has been a colossal project in the works for weeks prior and to see it finally come to life was fantastic. Now, I stream regularly on M/W/F between 5 pm and 8 pm EST.
