I cannot call you fans YET. I do not feel that I have built your trust. As you may know I have not been reliable in posting new content to my website and to the Discover Epcot YouTube channel. I have a bad track record of posting original content for a few months and then taking a few months off. 2013 is a new year and there are new plans for Discover Epcot. I have re-invested into new equipment to film with. The equipment includes camera stabilizers, body microphones, and new lenses. I have already started filming projects and I am quite happy with what I have so far.
Here is a little bit about me and something’s you wouldn’t know just by watching the Discover Epcot YouTube channel. I have made over 100 trips to Epcot since this started. One hundred seven trips to this date to be exact. More than 50% of those trips are alone, by my-self. I personally struggle with heavy feelings of loneliness from time to time. Theme parks are no fun when you’re always alone. Every once in a while it can be nice to take that single rider line. After a while I lose the original focus of why I started this production. Then when life gets a little busy, it’s all too easy to place things on the back burner. That is what has happened with me in the past.
However those days are over. 2013 is the year I am going to take this production to the next level. This will consist of higher production quality, more promotions, new connections, new material, new fans and new viewership, and new articles on the website. I have set a production schedule of new videos every other week with videos already in the pipeline. The website will receive updates frequently through the week with photos, video clips, and photography tips and tricks. I am making huge personal investments of time and money into this project. What I thought was once just a fun hobby has now turned into a way to make a real business. There are enough Epcot and Disney rumor sites out there that just re-link each other’s news articles. Discover Epcot is not a News and Rumor site and it never will be. It’s time for a real website that explores the beauty of Epcot and what you can expect when you visit the park today.
So what is the future of Discover Epcot? If you enjoyed the fun video Epcot in 5,151 photos then you will love the type of videos I have planned for this year. They include tributes, documentaries, tips and tricks, and in depth looks. Those are just some of the videos that are planned. There are also digital print publications that we want to produce. I look forward to earning your trust and being able to call you my fans. Right now I am just a guy who made a few cool videos. 2013 is a new year and a new era for Discover Epcot. I have two new people helping out that are going to help Discover Epcot arrive at that next level. The days of being an amateur are over. I will be surprised if by the end of 2013 I haven’t broken 200 visits. Make sure you bookmark this site and come back frequently.
