WILL yOU MAKE A WORLD WAR 2 SERIES?
Yes, definitely. I get more requests for a series about WW2 than on any other subject. I studied WW2 at university, so it's something I'm very interested in myself. And although there are thousands of WW2 videos out there already, I think I could do it in a very cool way that really helps people understand the strategies, turning-points and ebb and flow of the war.
Future topics get chosen by Patreon supporters ($2+) in regular votes, so if you really want to see Epic History TV do WW2 the best thing you can do is sign up and vote for it! Alternatively, you can still support the channel by sharing videos and telling your friends about it, which will all help me put more time and money towards a WW2 series.
CAN YOU MAKE A VIDEO ABOUT MY COUNTRY OR MY FAVOURITE BIT OF HISTORY?
I read all suggestions for future videos that are made in the YouTube comments. I'm sorry if I don't always have time to reply to each one personally, but I do read them. You should also note that suggestions from Patreon supporters get special consideration, and if you contribute $2+ per video, you also get to vote on future topics (from a shortlist I create).
It takes me around a month to make each video, and I already have a long list of topics that I want to cover - including Alexander the Great, WW2, the Black Death, Rome, the Napoleonic Wars, Vikings, the History of Britain, etc. So although I'm happy to receive your suggestion, unless it's already on my list, it might be a while coming.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU MAKE MORE VIDEOS?
Thanks for asking! Epic History TV is just one guy, and I really depend on your support to keep making videos. Hopefully, with your help, I can soon start making history videos full-time. The best way to contribute is at Patreon - you can pledge anything from $1 per video, and you can put a monthly limit on your donation. They require credit card details, but they are a legit and well-established crowdfunding site. Or you can make a one-off donation at this page.
HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR ANIMATED MAPS?
I've worked in television production for about 15 years, and I use a variety of broadcast-level software. The main one I use for the maps is Adobe After Effects. If you've not used it before it can be quite daunting, and it's not that cheap, but gives great results. There are plenty of free online tutorials if you want to give it a try.
