I’m finding that it’s hard to override my somewhat squirrely personality while making ASMR videos. I’ve been spending a lot of energy trying to overcome it, but I think I’m getting close to the point where I just have to accept that a lot of my ASMR videos are going to be a bit silly.
I’m also realizing that some ASMR videos are more comfortable than others for me to make. This video, for example, was aaaalmost a bridge too far with the latex gloves. I like to keep my content PG, and I’m still navigating what kind of content I’m comfortable making as an ASMR artist. There’s definitely a balance between creating content that’s in demand (plus effective) and creating content that feels comfortable for me to put online. (Normally I’d use the “could-your-grandma-watch-this” rule as a guide, but I’m pretty sure my grandmother would be decidedly freaked out by ASMR as a whole. XD )
So I’m just going to keep experimenting until I feel more settled in my style as an ASMR artist! Not all of my ASMR videos have been equally successful, but I’m pretty happy with all of them so far. 🙂
