I haven't actually been watching these things recently, just some memorable scenes from the past that came to mind. And the rain from Reign sounds awesome, can't wait to see it! 50+?!? I've hardly seen 5-10 scenes on YouTube, and mostly in low quality.

By the way, on a completely side note, do you have Tik Tok and do you have any playlists/collections of crying videos on YouTube? If so, would love to see those. Thanks!

Yeah I have a private Tik Tok, but I find trying to track of all the crying in there is literally impossible. If you like enough of them you basically get an infinite supply of new ones on the ‘for you’ page, that’s my pro tip there haha.

Re: Youtube playlists, you’ll see there are playlists on my channel, I copied stuff I had liked on my old private account. But a lot of the things I know I want to include in a video later won’t necessarily be there

Re: Started a Crying Girl Supercut YouTube Channel

Hi guys, just a progress update on Reign. Editing is going well, I’m about half way through. I squeezed in a lot of small sessions without it taking over my life (e.g. during lunch breaks, hooray for working from home)

The scene count is an interesting one. Quite a large amount of scenes have tears in her eyes but nothing leaves them. Do these count as crying scenes or not? What should the criteria be? I will show clips of them all in the video anyway, I just want to decide on some kind of criteria to work out what the final count should be. (For reference, 14 of the 90 Bruna scenes were like this but it’s a lot more common with Reign which is why I’m questioning it now. Yes, this obsession with counting is kind of a weird OCD thing, lol)

Hi guys!

You probably don't know me because I haven't posted much and have been dormant for ages, but I have an exciting announcement: I've launched a YouTube crying supercut channel! The first video is for a favourite of mine: Brazilian actress Bruna Marquezine in the telenovela 'Em Familia.' I've done an enormous video that covers all 90(!) of her crying scenes from that show:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7Bm_NQeyXY

Please do subscribe if you want to see more in future!


Now the full story:

So obviously this took a while, but I'll explain where my head's at. Despite being dormant on this forum I've remained obsessed with crying scenes and tears. This obsession led to hoarding; I've been skimming countless TV shows (especially novelas) collecting and noting down all the crying I could find. Admittedly not a healthy habit but with all the craziness going on in the world this year it's been a comforting time-sink.

I realised I've been stumbling upon huge gold mines of material that haven't been spoken about on this site but also can't easily be shared (due to not often being available directly on YouTube)

So that's where the supercuts idea came from. My editing style might not be to everyone's taste but I personally enjoy the rapid cutting of different teardrops. (I've tried quite obsessively to capture and document every visible tear movement; as you can see in this google sheet which I hope will help anyone who wants to seek out the full scenes). The editing is also a necessity due to YouTube content ID; so by presenting fast moving supercuts rather than untouched scenes I'm hoping it counts as transformative. Some videos probably still will get flagged but I'll... deal with that when I need to.

So for now... enjoy! I have an enormous backlog of supercut edits to get through and it will take time; for my own sanity I won't let this take over my life. Feel free to suggest video ideas, I'm happy to consider them - my own list is vast (I won't share it just yet) and covers many things I've seen discussed on this forum, plus a lot of really obscure things. Who knows just how much I'll end up doing but for now I'm just really happy to have reached this point.

PS: sorry male crying fans. I'm just not into male crying enough to spend the ridiculous amount of hours to do male supercuts too.

Wow, dedicated to the spreadsheet, I'd love to add the category of having her tears wiped (by someone else), thanks for sharing (both the video and the spreadsheet)/

IT'S HERE! Reign crying supercut! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELNPAlY9TyQ

Hope you all enjoy! Can't believe I got it done already. I definitely don't know how long I'll keep up this kind of pace

In the interest of speeding things up I have defaulted to just muting parts where there's music rather than trying to blend the audio together. I hope this isn't too distracting. 
I've also tweaked the spreadsheeta bit. Removed the images as they take too long to load (and make) and replaced them with timestamps for the videos. Amans I only just saw your suggestion about adding a tears wiped column, maybe I'll think about it later. 

I don't want to talk about what the next videos will be, I'd rather not have that kind of pressure. Also don't want to keep spamming this thread with updates on videos in progress.
Please do subscribe to my channel! I also have a crying archive Twitter  and Instagram, which is currently empty. Not sure how much I'll use them yet.
Thanks for all the support so far everyone!

Just watched the video. Even though running tears is still my fave Adelaide looks so beautiful with her eyes full of tears, and we had some lovely wipes too

Excellent as always! I'm surprised she doesn't shed more unchecked tears, but it's not much of an issue for me as I like tear filled eyes and tears that fall like rain (there weren't as many of those as there were in Reign, but they were still good), and I liked that she wipes her tears in a good number of scenes, though it'd have been great if she hadn't completely covered her face/eyes when she did that. The thumbnail for the video was outstanding, can you post your thumbnails in the images section? Your thumbnails are as good as your videos.

Glad you appreciate the thumbnails! I do tend to go a bit over the top with them. Yes I'll upload some images soon I think. 

You might have guessed, but for each of the individual 'images' that make up a thumbnail I end up taking a few screen shots during tear falls and overlay them on top of each other to make it look like an impossible amount of tears falling all at once. That wasn't originally the plan but I found it so hard to choose which individual frames look best during a scene and then discovered I could easily combine them. It doesn't take too long to do that on photoshop, it's something I do while the video is rendering / uploading.
So it is super unnatural looking but I figured it's certainly striking (which is what a thumbnail's for, right?)

Hmm... writing this up made me think I should share a bit more about my whole end to end process for making the videos. If you're interested I'll happily share more.

Re: Started a Crying Girl Supercut YouTube Channel

Ahh you know what I couldn't stop myself. Here's my process in detail:

First step is obviously just tracking down content. Easier said than done especially as I try to locate ALL of the crying scenes in something. I do mean all - this is actually a big deal for me, as if it wasn't obvious I'm kind of a crazy OCD guy so it's my top priority to make sure I don't miss anything. So the only way to make sure is to acquire every episode of it. That's easy if it's on YouTube (using script tools like youtube-dl) but a challenge otherwise. There's no silver bullet here but I've gone to extreme lengths before like subscribing to random foreign streaming services and using chrome extensions to extract the feeds.

Next I isolate the crying scenes. I'm on Mac, I use QuickTime to skim through which is much more responsive than YouTube and so it allows me to locate crying scenes quite fast. I then trim the entire scenes out and save them separately, QuickTime does this losslessly and quickly if it's just a single trim. Then I eventually delete the originals. It's a lot of disk space! Note: Please don't ask me to share files - I really wouldn't be comfortable, I settled on my supercuts as the most ethical (and practical) way of sharing. 

Next... iMovie. I start a new project using a template of just the title and end screen which I made for my first video. I drag the first scene in. I immediately crop the edges of the screen and mess with the colour balance a bit to hopefully throw off YouTube's automated detection. Then I start working my way through the clip, cutting out small clips of the best bits, making sure to show all tear movement, sobbing etc. The keyboard shortcuts are muscle memory now. As I'm going through I'll also have a private copy of the stats google sheet open and keep on adding to my counts as I go, including the timestamps. I basically never go back once I've added something in, it's just easier to do one pass of it. If I need to adjust the crop on individual clips I will. Also if there's music with no voices or sobbing I'll mute it. I also make sure no clip is longer than a few seconds. Just trying to be as safe as possible. 

How long does it take to edit a complete video? Well I tend to do small amounts a time. With Forevermore in total it was about 10-12 hours to edit which is honestly pretty good considering the amount of clips. I had already located all the scenes ages ago and have no idea how long that took me. Overall it is a huge undertaking and I'm not sure I want to know!

As the video is exporting or uploading there's a few admin bits to do: 
- Making the thumbanil (as described in above post)
- Finishing off the google sheets log and pasting it into the final 'live version' (e.g. adding episode air dates... there's my OCD again)
- Writing video description including the final stats tally and often pretty arbitrary chapter markers just to make it a little easier to find specific parts (did I mention my OCD)

I'll let the video sit in drafts a little bit to make sure it 'clears' any initial content checks (been lucky so far) and also because I probably need a break and haven't quite finished the admin bits...
But then eventually I give in and make it public, notify you guys and there we go!

I'm really giving this my all. It's probably the strangest and most unhealthy commitment I've ever had in my life. But I do genuinely enjoy it. My priority is making sure I don't suffer burnout. I'm probably getting pretty close but I'm optimistic that I'll be able to continue doing this at a healthy pace.

Re: Started a Crying Girl Supercut YouTube Channel

Please don't burn yourself out. As much as I love watching your crying videos I want you to remain healthy at the same time. Keeping your list private will help a bit as it won't create hype

Yes you did mention your OCD, we all have little moments like that including me!
