Studio Tour: Nostalgia Nerd + Ashens & Did You Know Gaming

It's 2020, and what better way to begin the year than adding to all the other game room and retro game room tours that come out at this time. This is actually a behind the scenes video that I've been meaning to make for a while, and so I've included a progression of my studio/office since my channel began, or at least, since it was relevant, back in 2015. My office space is also housed in the same building as Did You Know Gaming and Ashens, in what I'll describe as a "SEworldr paradise". Find out how that came to be and then you can decide whether the description is accurate within.

  • hmmm! familiar... yes although my hobby involves older tech namely windup gramophones the aesthetics are basically the same if there's a hole I think I can fill then I probably already filled it! I also deviate from the main theme like you, with old toys and antiques I like firsts of things so of course, I have the first 1958 commercial lego set and I have the Philips cd 100 the first commercial cd player, the 1910 eureka spring load cap arrow gun a toy that can actually kill someone at least it shoots rods straight through a board of plywood so a skull won't be much of a hindrance! so very eclectic keep up the good work!

  • I love that in an age where we (finally) don't have to think too much about video standards, NTSC vs. PAL (or SECAM if you had to bother with that), interlacing, et cetera, et cetera, since no displays are locked to the mains frequency, and therefore basically every standard HDTV and display is capable of 60 Hz -- you're filming in 1080p50 :()

  • I admire your space, as a SEworldr, artist, and photographer, my space is divided into 3, I wish I could have that storage you have. In NYC our office space is expensive. I rent out an artspace and that is long, but no windows. Looking at this video, I am inspired by your organizing I use Kallax as well, I usually find and repurpose them from an upscale neighborhood I find them in, def going to restructure my studio after this. Great video mate!

  • I noticed several shots of reversed video to make your B-roll long enough to work with your voice-over. If that editing trick is good enough for George Lucas to have a Tusken Raider shaking his weapon over his head, it's good enough for Nostalgia Nerd! Nice tour.
