So, yeah that's me.... I felt I needed to add the image just to show you who I am.

Here is the link to my channel at the moment: HERE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn5-yCy84MacBth4SycowLQ

But the thing is though, I want to make Anime reviews on youtube but I simply don't know how to get the footage I need to make anime reviews like Glass Reflection. Does anyone here know what the way is to get footage of anime with Fair use.

I also want to get supported by Crunchyroll as I love this site and want to support it to the best of my ability.But for now, I won't ask of you guys to help me with that part until I release at least a few reviews I suppose.

All I want for now is to start making review on Anime, so I just want to know the best way to get footage

Hmm, I have never done any anime reviews. To my immediate knowledge, one just needs to know how copyright works (good example I heard is ... 1) Bad: showing a clip from show then talking about it; 2) Good: Talking about your opinion while you show the anime clip)

Other than that, you will definitely need a video editor, unfortunately I can not help you here as I have no experience! However, if you need a budget screen recorder, I would try out "Action!," made by Mirillis. Though I have only used the non-trial software a couple of times (was gonna do gaming vids, but still haven;t got around to it -_-), I can say that it seems to perform smoothly and doesn't impact the system greatly.


So, summarizing things that you will need
-Knowledge on fair use/Copyright
-Video Editing (can't recommend here)
*Optional necessity: Screen Recorder (Recommended: Mirillis Action!)



Good Luck!

(share with me any good video editors? I think it's time I follow through and try making some game vids)

I would assume most people just download the mp4's from youtube or random fansub sites and then cut them together in a video editing program. Pretty convenient since they'll be editing their video anyways to mix audio, color correct, and add the jump cuts you kids all seem to love so much these days.

Most people who are serious about making online videos actually use real, professional software like Final Cut or Premiere. But you can make due with a cheaper or free program if you aren't doing a ton of editing besides splicing together clips.

As far as fair use goes. Using clips for the purposes of review should be fine no matter where you get it from. I would obscure any watermarks though since that just screams out "hey everyone I downloaded this video illegally!"

Even if your purpose is covered under "fair use," such as reviews, I would suggest against acquiring footage through fansubs or other illegal means. Even screen recording legal streams or breaking the copy protection on DVDs and BDs would be a gray area, but at least the content was originally found legally.

If you're still worried, you could do written reviews, use screenshots (not motion), or present the review as a podcast/discussion instead of relying on video.
