EPISODE 372 – YouTuber Evan Carmichael – How to Get 3 Million+ Subs

Hi, everyone! 

This is Allan McKay. Welcome to Episode 372! I’m sitting down with Evan Carmichael who is a YouTuber, Author and Speaker. We talk about perfectionism, self-esteem, failure, being an introvert – and so much more! I’m really excited about this Episode. Evan’s channel has over 3 million subscribers, so it’s great to have him on the Podcast!

Let’s dive in!



[01:12]  Have you ever sent in your reel and wondered why you didn’t get the callback or what the reason was you didn’t get the job? Over the past 20 years of working for studios like ILM, Blur Studio, Ubisoft, I’ve built hundreds of teams and hired hundreds of artists — and reviewed thousands of reels! That’s why I decided to write The Ultimate Demo Reel Guide from the perspective of someone who actually does the hiring. You can get this book for free right now at www.allanmckay.com/myreel!

[27:06] One of the biggest problems we face as artists is figuring out how much we’re worth. I’ve put together a website. Check it out: www.VFXRates.com! This is a chance for you to put in your level of experience, your discipline, your location — and it will give you an accurate idea what you and everyone else in your discipline should be charging. Check it out: www.VFXRates.com!


Okay, what did you think? I want to thank Evan for coming on the Podcast.

Please take a moment to share this Episode with others! 

Next week, I’m doing a solo Episode on how to stand out from your competitors. Until then –
