JoeR247 Interviews... DeadHeadDraven

October 13, 2018

 

1. What is the story behind your channel name?

 

My friend gave me the name years ago when he was setting up my Xbox 360 for me, i went by Draven as its the name of the lead character in my favorite movie The Crow but it was too short to use as a user name so he added the DeadHead part as it seemed to fit me (i can be a little dumb sometimes) I liked it and its been my gaming name ever since

 

2. What is your video game history/background and all time favourite game? 

 

I got my first computer when i was around 10 i think and it was a commodore 64 - ever since then i have been hooked on gaming as i think its a brilliant way to tell stories and get lost yourself in a another world - My favorite game of all time has to be Final Fantasy VII, until i played this game i had no idea games could be so complex, deep and moving - i first played it at a friends house and i kept going back and playing it so much the friend game me his copy of the game as i had played it more then him but he enjoyed watching me play it to completion

 

3. What/Who inspired you to start creating content on the internet?

 

A friend of mine @GeneralKaosLive started streaming and asked me if i would check out his channel and give him my free Prime sub as i have amazon prime! i only ever intended to go on twitch to support him but after hanging out in his channel and seeing how much fun he was having i had to give it ago myself - now i am totally hooked

 

4. When did you start creating content on the internet?

 

I have been doing podcasts for around 7 years but i only started streaming on twitch in March this year (2018)

 

5. How did you find the first few weeks/months of content creation? (any funny stories/mistakes/highlights?)

 

The thing that got me at first was how quiet my channel was at first but as no one knew me they had no reason to come check me out - after getting friendly with some cools peeps and becoming part of a community the support just rolled in - this was amazing to me and i will never forget the feeling of having 10+ in my channel for the first time

 

6. How did you grow your channel? How did you network?

 

MAKE FRIENDS WITH PEOPLE - simply find like minded people and hang out with them - asking for follows/shout outs gets you no where, making real connections with people and groups is the best way

 

7. What has been your proudest moment so far? 

 

The first time I sold merch - the closest I have ever come to crying on stream 😜

 

8. How did you find the technical side of content creation? Setting up your channel, etc?

 

I am in I.T. so it was too bad to set up - there are lots of good youtube channels out there with all the info you need

 

9. What do you enjoy most about your content creation hobby/career? 

 

The Support - i stream because i am going to be playing games anyway why not stream too, what keeps me doing it and trying to improve my channel is the support that people have shown me - i get a great buzz when ever i get a new follow/raid/sub/bit and it just makes me want earn that support even more

 

10. What don't you enjoy so much about your content creation hobby/career? 

 

I find myself not playing certain games that i would normally play due to them being "not right for streaming" in my head - but im trying to tell myself SCREW IT play what ever you would normally be playing

 

11. What are you short term and long term goals for your channel/s?

 

Just keep going and hope people stick with me - I am so happy with where my channel is right now

 

12. What advice would you give anyone looking to get into content creation?

 

Be yourself - Make Friends with people who do the same thing - Dont watch the numbers - focus on quailty not progression

 

13. Finally, what other content creators do you enjoy watching and recommend people check out?

 

Too many to name so i will just say my best friend @enrisenarcade
