Three Gamers Podcast is a team of three friends who review games and talk current gaming news all while playing a game live.
The Three Gamers Podcast is a unique and fresh take on the video game Podcast that we all normally see. Charles 'swaggers' Adams and his friends review and discuss games while we play them. Each week the team plays a portion of a game while reviewing and offering strategies and tips we have found. We also discuss gaming news from the week and anything else that comes up. We plan to play a wide range of games from the latest next gen titles to old school classics. The Three Gamers Podcast will cover all console systems and the PC market. We will also produce bonus podcasts to cover breaking news and happenings in the gaming world.
The team is ready to take our Podcast to the next level. We've been working on this podcast for a few years as the GameGuideCentral Video Podcast on and off but we want it to have it's own momentum so we are re-branding it as Three Gamers Podcast. We want to produce a high quality entertaining weekly video podcast that can be enjoyed by all and we need to update our recording equipment to do it.
The team is spread out across the US and we are looking to raise money to get better recording equipment for both audio and video. Only the highest quality podcasts are really noticed and we are hurting our future by using sub-par equipment. We are looking to update to the high quality mics for the entire team and also to purchase two high-end computers to recording and encoding. Currently I am wasting hours and hours on failed recordings and slow encoding times. A new high end computer ensures that we can always be recording so we never miss anything and that we can provide true HD video that viewers have come to expect.
We are not graphic designers, we are gamers. We also want to hire a designer to create intros and outros for the podcast as well as a new logo for the website, print, and merchandise designs. Proper branding of our Podcast is an important step to creating viewer recognition and loyalty.
Three Gamers Podcast will always be free and open to everyone. Our plan is to use this new equipment to produce a higher quality podcast that will push us to new viewer and subscriber heights. To have the resources to take our show on the road and be able to cover major conventions. To have the speed and computing power we need to be the first to report and comment on breaking news in the industry. I believe there is advertising and sponsorship money for a well designed and enjoyable podcast and that we are posed and ready to meet any challenges that come our way.
