Show Topic: Does Design, Content or Usability Come First?

Metal & Grain :

Do you think about design, content or usability first?

Make Brooklyn :

How does being a content creator affect your timeline in completing projects? I know for me, filming makes it take easily three times longer than it otherwise would.

Keith Johnson WW:

When you guys put together a YouTube vid, do you record everything and then do a marathon editing session? Or do you work in chunks and edit as you finish each phase of the project?

Yonatan2:

What do you do when you find yourself awake at 5AM, unable to sleep, being blasted with tons of great project ideas? Only me?

Hammer and Neil:

If you could make any step of the process done in an instant what step would it be?
