  • But I guess you know, I want to talk about basically your time since our last interview.

  • So basically like, sure, there's a single It's big.

  • It's being It's really been like a roller custom.

  • Uh, but, you know, mostly going up, But yes, three years.

  • Mmm.

  • Mmm.

  • Mmm.

  • Yeah.

  • I said, yeah.

  • You just posted that the other day for the the video of the three year video.

  • So I thought, Yeah, it's a really good time to have our interview after just three years and talk a little bit about that.

  • You're pretty well experienced now, e.

  • I know it wasn't supposed to laugh right then, But create Is that what we've seen, right?

  • Oh, I experience now.

  • Yeah, but it's been good.

  • It's been really different going from the studio assigned to the to the creative side.

  • But, you know, worth it to really had a good And now, on the way back to the studio, you wanna talk about your plan?

  • It's how I've been on YouTube long enough to graduate from YouTube Uh, okay, I'm not.

  • And that was a judge.

  • Uh, just how did my structure this?

  • This is what I really struggle with.

  • I mean, don't worry.

  • What's gonna be the changes to your physical space?

  • Okay.

  • So exact knows a bit of the background to this previous three years have been worked really well.

  • It's been super successful, and I really think that YouTube platform for for being one of the key keep planes in helping me get my work seen on developing support eccentricity.

  • YouTube's been fantastic in that because the community thank you very much, guys, you guys have been absolutely phenomenal.

  • And that was the big change.

  • I had to go on being a studio owned modeler.

  • We call that all I've learned since then.

  • I can't call it professional modeling because that encompasses folks who to commission works exception, which is which is fine.

  • I have to say we're in the Japanese sentiment and they have just just to two terms.

  • There's okay, Jackson and Gil Sha and Jackson customers.

  • He's probably right near their customer.

  • And Gil Sha is when you cross that line going over to the industry side from vote in the industry.

  • Um, that was probably a good, uh, good way to explain it.

  • Better than saying professional model.

  • It's quite broad off in that I've been able to reestablish myself with my Japanese, my old, Uh, what?

  • What we call them.

  • They weren't partners.

  • They were overlords have been able to reestablish myself with them.

  • They've been quite surprised about it all that, you know, They expected me to fade off into into obscurity once around Australia.

  • But when I popped back up there with the whole Biekert team, right?

  • You know, they were really surprised that I like him.

  • You know that the word of mouth got around back to me.

  • They said, way had you're you're here, and you're some kind of big shot now.

  • Ah, What?

  • I just hope to God I ask that I dress well instead of so is dressed better on helping them tea things up.

  • Yet the right on YouTube has helped me to, you know, re establish connections, but from a different point of view, certain I'm working with the same Japanese companies now and helping them get the message out in English.

  • Now I see a big value in that too Who's that?

  • So that that's really cool off the YouTube has brought me back to be.

  • No, I said that.

  • I mean, uh, you know, excited and babbling again.

  • Sorry.

  • It's very exact.

  • The YouTube has helped me to get back to publishing.

  • Yeah, it wasn't the goal.

  • Um, beginning.

  • I thought, Wow, you're making making videos.

  • This sounds like a really good idea.

  • Oh, I really enjoy it.

  • I think it's It's a very powerful way to share content, um, certain types of content.

  • But as I got better at it, I could start to feel that there was some gaps in what I could share.

  • Mmm.

  • Actually, put time.

  • No, some of the model finishes that make a quite complex.

  • And I'm not very hard to fit into a 10 15 minute video.

  • S O.

  • Okay, maybe I need to start taking some more photos about photos by steps, which, of course, means, you know, publication.

  • And then when I started talking with the people that worked with in the past, um, I was pitching my idea of a book to them and accounted with a better offer.

  • They said, actually, we have this property, one of them has a has a flagship series of books.

  • We SciFi version yet our staff telling us you're the monkey to make this happen, huh?

  • And, uh, so So it's much bigger project in it.

  • And I was pitching them.

  • And of course, as you know, that'll be That'll be great.

  • So that's the the version.

  • Too long, Zach.

  • But that's where it's going.

  • It's going from learning videos, doing that and then coming back to team or industry side work again.

  • Oh, that will be starting to pump out with vision to from next year.

  • Mmm.

  • Is gonna like you?

  • Well, Very much.

  • Explain it.

  • Is this kind of like you?

  • You are, like, already a professional.

  • And then you went back to college to learn the basics and apply at work.

  • That kind of really, that's actually a really good one to explain it.

  • Thank you.

  • It's kind of cheese.

  • Like the master's degree.

  • Ah.

  • Of industries like modeling, isn't it because you learn a lot doing YouTube video?

  • I am I right?

  • I mean, you're the master at that ending.

  • Our congratulations on 100 came in in the play button.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you.

  • I've got it.

  • Uh, in the box that I haven't found a good place to hang.

  • Well, I'm the good place.

  • I'm waiting on some stuff to gonna rearrange the space here, and then we'll find a good place for it.

  • But, uh, yeah, I was gonna say it was just that, I think.

  • Yet I've also wondered about myself about using the term professional because it's like there's different kinds of thing professionals.

  • But I think it's in your hand.

  • I would say it's totally fair to still use the term professional, but it's different than the type of professional that you were before you before you're a professional model.

  • Or now you're a professional content creator or just creative thinking that that's a really good way to think about it.

  • Thank you.

  • Ah, good.

  • To be honest, I prefer this version now.

  • I didn't think I would, but ah, having a little bit more self ownership being able to choose things.

  • It's more stressful, of course, because we we need to be right Bye.

  • Been having that?

  • Ah, a little bit more freedom of choice of AA rated content, for this is very cool.

  • Yeah, definitely.

  • It's definitely a double edged sword Oh, yeah.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • Wake up every morning.

  • Oh, it's just gonna be good or not.

  • Yeah, that's like all my all of my co workers in my school because, you know, I just recently quit being a teacher to do this full time.
