Your videos are so good i love the philosophy you use and varied points of view. I like how you manage to deconstruct the world around us but not to show off or just get views but to create a powerful positive message that you can share with the world. You seem a very genuine talented creator making something you enjoy rather than someone who only wants success for the sake of success. Your first rick and morty video felt inspired and really struck a cord with me but tbf all your content is very good. Hope you can make a living from this and hope to see more amazing content.

What about "Archer" the show also making fun of the James Bond cliche by making Sterling went through realistic issues that fictional Bond never suffered like ear damage due to gun and explosion, have an erection after getting a sport car, brutal restriction of bureaucracy, related cancer due to drinking problems, and finally Sterling sexuality lead to many pregnant and abortion, James Bond maybe the escapism for many men but Sterling Archer is the needle to the eyes telling Bond to stop living in a fantasy. Venture Bros also satirize superhero comics and boys adventure like jonny quest but Venture Bros is not nihilism since many of the characters grow and find meaning in life despite the brutality of their meaningless world, the Venture Bros characters learn from their mistakes and become better compare to the rest of adult animation Venture Bros satire is anti nihilism.

What's wrong with nihilism, though ? It's really not that harsh of an idea, it says "life has no meaning" objectively, and that's basically it. It doesn't mean you need to be a dick, or that you should kill yourself, gee, it doesn't even stop you from acknowledging that "need for meaning" that seems to permeate human society, and it certainly doesn't stop you from having empathy. The difference is that now, you can choose that meaning. (Tbh, I really think you can't be free if you aren't a nihilist, because if you follow "meaning", you're basically following what someone else determined was "meaningful")

The popularity of satire is rooted in the creators cool detachment from the subject. From that perspective, they cannot be questioned because they undermine the authority of anyone who would question them. What’s desperately needed is a willingness to put forth a new set of ideals that better reflect what we actually think is important in life beyond eating, having sex, making money and sleeping. If the kind of mind that tears down ideals submits their own ideals to the same slings and arrows of satire, what sort of positive contribution is possible?

Cartoons definitely compliment satire! Not necessarily a cartoon but we used a cartoon filter for this skit of Kim and Trump and it helps convey the satire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVIuK96iXDE

I like some things about these shows, but I always feel a huge sense of alienation from them. I'm a lesbian, and a lot of media like this has so many jokes about gay people, it just makes me weary and tired. It wouldn't be that bad, but after a lifetime of seeing the same jokes directed at me and my friends, it's just hard to watch, even if it has other interesting material and ideas in it.

Hey Adam, thanks for the nice comment! In terms of creating video essays, getting over the initial hump is the hardest part. It is a very involved medium, as I’m sure you’ve already discovered. It’s cliche advice, but it’s just a fact: the only way to get good is to sit down and get grinding on it. Don’t worry if you can’t meet certain quality standards immediately. You’ll get better. That’s what YouTube is all about. People will connect with you and watch as you get better. They like that! They want to see you improve as a writer, speaker, and editor. My way is by no means the best way, but I'll tell you what I do for visual planning. Two things mainly: 1. I'll read and re-read a paragraph and let my mind visualize it. 2. Then ask, does that visualization A. actually work with the script?, B. seem aesthetically pleasing? and C. flow with the rest of the video? If the visualization passes through all the filters, then I figure out how it can be put into an editing program. If it is outside my editing/photoshop abilities, I'll take the extra time to teach myself how to do it. I always think it's worth it (YouTube Tutorials are really great for this). I don't storyboard because the editing process is truly a process, and mapping it out would make it too absolute. The editing part is the creative part. Again, my advice to upstart video essayists is always just to start making the thing. Once you begin to learn the language of editing, you’ll be able to point out in professional videos how someone did something. Go through the backlog of your favorite video essayists and ask yourself how they did all the editing stuff. It will take time, but you’ll figure it out, and eventually, it will become second nature. For now, don’t measure yourself against others. Just try to wake up everyday having gotten better and keep beating your best work. If you have any other questions, shoot me an email: willschoder@gmail.com. Oh, and most importantly, choose topics that you love! The audience won’t care if you don’t. Good luck, Adam!!!

I'm really reluctant to post on youtube comments but I just reallized I can't let this one pass: I'm a college student in Brazil and I really wish I had the money to become a Patreon to this channel. I watched all the videos, some more than once (the BoJack one is my favorite), and every time I watch I feel that I learned something about the world, about people and about myself. I'm saying I'd really like to be able to be a Patreon (I hope to get some income really soon) because I saw there that Will wants to make this a full time job and I can objectively say that my live would be better off with this. Thank you for your videos, Will.

Almost upvoted this video until John Oliver was shown during the "satire at its best" bit. Seriously? The entire premise of his show is that a whiny British guy whines and the audience is an echo-chamber so they cheer. Oliver is satire at its worst, satire on accident.

I’ve often thought about the unrealistic standard of American Idealism sets for Americans, and how our politicians espouse idealistic policies but act out of accordance with these ideals, defaulting to money and corruption instead.
