This is the beginning of a series about how I make my YouTube videos. This video starts with a look at my setup. You only see what is in front of the camera in the cropped frame. In this video, I show you what I see and how things are placed.

For all of you that have expressed concern about R2-D2 falling off of my desk, I show you why he won’t fall off 🙂
