New Things
I want to employ zinya full time (one of my BoredGamer Streamers) to do pretty much everything I do, with a focus on editing, streaming and gameplay. This would give me a huge amount more time to make more content and more time consuming content, stream more regularly and do a lot more multiplayer Gameplay based content in addition to the current Channel Content.
Assuming this turns out to be a sensible idea, this is likely to happen April 2019 time.

Current Plans
BoredGamer is a Star Citizen focused Youtube Channel focusing on Star Citizen & Squadron 42 then tries to take the news & gameplay concepts tand make them more digestible with short informative videos on Youtube | youtube.com/BoredGamerUK
  • The Channel is also Partnered with Twitch @ www.twitch.tv/boredgameruk where I play various games as well as talk about Star Citizen News.
  • The Goal of the Channel is to make Star Citizen, News & Information easily Accessible and Digestible for everyone with some gameplay and fun thrown in too.
  • I talk about Mental Health On the Channel, I suffer from Bipolar Depression & an OCD Anxiety. I aim to be able to openly address that, talk about my experience & help with signposting where possible.
Community Driven
The viewers and community are the most important part of this. The ideas, support, funding & friendship that everyone provides is all key to making everything we do more efficient, higher quality & actually getting the content you want. But also I want to build a community where no one is (unreasonably) excluded & other content providers can work together to make Greater Works.
We are looking to do regular games with the Community too.

The Content
We cover Star Citizen News, Summaries, Recaps, Gameplay, Mechanics, Patch Notes, Ship Buyer's Guides.
At the moment we are waiting for more of Star Citizen to be available. We will be making videos explaining how to DO EVERYTHING, specific job roles, loadouts, skills, piloting manoeuvres, a focus on economy & mechanics but also HOW TO make 10,000 UEC an hour videos.
At our core we are a news, information & how-to Channel for Star Citizen. And trying to make most of the videos as short as possible is important to that too. If you want to know where to mine a particular mineral we would have a 2 min video explaining where to get it & then signposting other videos that might be of use.

Website - boredgamer.co.uk
BoredGamer.co.uk host various weekly summarizes of Star Citizen News and content as well as useful links, guides, info and more.

Equipment
There are always better Cameras for Recording both videos and at events, microphones, PC Hardware is all important for quality. I try to keep upto date as much as possible without wasting money. It would be really great to get a good quality Video Cam & Shotgun Microphone for filming Star Citizen Events & grabbing interviews with CIG Devs in the future.

Events
There are events for Star Citizen each Year, which I want to go to where possible, GamesCom, CitizenCon, BritizenCon as well as Studio Tours. I will be making an effort to go to Studio Tours, get Interviews with Devs and get to Bar Citizens and Events. Certain distances won't be do-able as I don't travel that well, BUT I shall try... or send a proxy. I attended BritizenCon, a Foundry 42 UK Office Tour and various Bar Citizens. I would of loved to have gone to CitizenCon and GamesCom in 2018 BUT GamesCom didn't have a SC Presentation & CitizenCon would of been insanely expensive as it was in Austin!

Giveaways & Competitions
I want the community to remain as involved as possible. We do monthly competitions now, but I’d like to do monthly ones for Best Photo, Getting a high score in Vanduul Swarm with a Specific loadouts, things to get the community involved. I don’t want to waste any funds from Patreons on excessive Giveaways tho.

Patreon & Fan Funding
Patreon & Donations really help improve the Channel. I will always be trying to aspirationally improve as it is but, the donations make a dramatic difference. Moreover no-one needs to donate, you can help massively with content ideas, chatting, supporting us or even just saying hi! Patreon is just another way for viewers or fans to support us.
