Cooking video editing vs. travel video editing

I edited and uploaded my 14th video to my YouTube channel tonight. This one was about my 5-minute Instant Pot Indian chicken curry, and after spending the last three videos working on travel in Newfoundland & Labrador, I realized that this one was far less fun, with less things to be creative about. Granted, the areas where cooking videos can get creative are when you are speeding up long tasks, slowing down others, etc., but with the Instant Pot-themed video, there really aren’t that many opportunities to do that. So even though I was satisfied with what I’d created in the end, I was feeling lukewarm about it and not very excited.

This is probably just the ebbs and flows of video editing different content. You’ll love some, like others, and hate the remaining. It’s just a work in progress to see what works and what doesn’t.
