lookoutawhale -  *swims into thread*

hehe thanks for the thread duckhunt.

thanks for all the great comments everyone! =)

i will make a new video sometime, its just the old ones kept getting hit with copyright hammer so it killed the steam of making new ones and then relocating them when they went down.
Really? That's disappointing. I thought Dana was a fan of UG GIFs and romos. It's not like you're getting rich making these vids. Have they sited what their issue is? Phone Post

 im not really sure. I dont think Dana gets it pulled , i think theres a company that works for the UFC that does the copyright tagging for them on youtube.

The GSP Punchout one got really popular and it was on Attack of the Show as the runner up viral video for that week and then a couple days later it said it was taken down for a copyright from Zuffa. I think it had like 200 000 hits in 2 days.

The MMA Kombat one with Todd Duffee was hit with it. The Fedor Skysuplex one, The Fedor punchout one and The Kimbo Ultimate Hype one. The Bispings Island one was hit with a community guideline because i think his fans flagged it hehe because it said the word dick. I featured a small excerpt from Attack of the Show showing my videos and they actually hit me with a warning to take it down which was odd because it was video of them showing my video.

So 5 Zuffa strikes and 2 community guidelines for content.

Usually its 3 strikes and your channel is deleted but after 2 strikes the remaining videos were getting good hits and a couple became featured youtube videos like Rocky 87 so youtube cleared my strikes. But then after 3 more strikes lookoutawhale channel was killed and i had to start up "notlookoutawhale"

It would take me a couple a weeks to make the videos and they got some good hits but then a couple days later they would just be removed, so it kinda sucked putting all that work into it and it get 2 days of showing. So made them less and less unfortunately.

I tried to make them so im not just showing a fight, it was some bizarre premise to the footage i did use but alas i dont think they wanted me to use any footage even for joking purposes.

What about creating your own original content? don't think you would have any copyright infringement issues then. You could create your own humorous interviews and have fighters do skits and what not, that you can edit and animate. I'm sure there are a lot of fighters who would participate as it could generate a lot of attention to their twitter/facebook accounts potentially leading to them getting the UFC social media bonuses. As well, like any athlete, musician and actor, the more media attention the more marketable they are and the more money they can make.

There are lots of us who would be more than happy to help you create this content. I'm a certified audio engineer and would always be willing to help you with mixing, editing and such. I also have some decent camera gear.


I think we all just want to support you in creating your masterpieces!

Cheers

 Yeah maybe ive had some ideas swimming around. Thought about expanding outside the mma base too and making videos for other stuff. Thanks for the sound offer. at the moment another a great youtube user chaplinshouse helps with the music part. Hes a musician that created and sung the bispgins island and the brady bunch one and some others. ill see how it goes. It was always a fun little hobby for a couple years making the vids, maybe i might just keep making a them here and there and if they get deleted ill just pop up with another channel when the notlookoutawhale thing goes down.

i never put any titles with fighters names or the ufc name anywhere or in the metadata but they would still find the vids hehe. They probably read those blogs sites too.

thanks for liking my vids and supporting them!

Not sure how in the hell most of your work wouldn't be seen as appropriation as opposed to copyright infringement, but I'm also not a Youtube employee.  Regardless, it's a damn shame that your awesome work wasn't staying up more than a few days before some knuckleheads had it removed.  This thread is awesome because I got a chance to see some of your videos that I hadn't previously... great stuff dude!

I can see why they might not like him using actual footage but there are tons of HL reels out there (maybe they have permissions?) that do the same thing.

Whale I'm curious have you ever spoke to anyone from the UFC about obtaining permissions? I mean your basically doing free marketing for them to by sensationalizing their fighters with moveable pop culture themes. Phone Post

thanks mmf, much appreciated. after the punchout incident i stopped titling my videos properly too. It would just say something generic like "mma punchout" and the metadata was odd things like "trees" "squirrels" thinking maybe ufc youtube bots were just finding some keywords. but they still found me hehe. they must check the blogs and mma sites for stuff posted.
