Q: What is your name, how old are you, where do you live?
A: Taylor Harris, 23, New Jersey.
Software / Hardware Questions:
Q: What software do you record / edit with?
A: I record my PC videos with DxTory. I capture my console videos with a Hauppauge HD PVR. I edit all of my videos with Sony Vegas 12, and sometimes use Adobe Photoshop for miscellaneous work. Any animation models that are in my thumbnails are made with Cinema 4D.
Q: Can you show me your DxTory / Sony Vegas 12 render settings?
Q: Can you recommend a computer build for me / rate my PC?
A: No, as this would take too much time to do individually. If you want the opinion of multiple people, the forum is a great place to go!
Q: Can you buy / get me a copy of Minecraft please?
A: I get this question more then you would think. The answer is no.
Q: Can you join my server / play Minecraft with me?
A: This is by far, the most requested thing I get. I have to say no to all of these requests. I get 6-12 of these a day. If I said yes to them, my entire day would be taken by just that. Instead, follow me on twitter, and if I ever join a public server when I'm messing around / looking to play with others, I'll announce it there. As far as accepting personal requests, I have to say no.
Q: What server / servers do you play on?
A: Because of how many subscribers I have, and mob mentality, I can never reveal what servers I play on. I usually don't even play on my primary account anyways when I play on public servers. For this reason, I won't ever reveal what servers I play on, ever.
Q: Are you going to make a server?
Q: What texture pack do you use?
A: For the most part, I use the FaithfulVenom 32x Texture Pack. It requires the use of an HD patcher of some sort, or the OptiFine mod. The download link can be found here!
Q: Cow Killing Montage, when is it coming?
A: Probably never, honestly. It feels like a video like that would be in bad taste anyways. I shouldn't have ever made a video promising I would do it. It's the one thing I could never figure out how to do properly.
A: tl;dr version, I wanted a cool name for Battlefield 2, friends name was poison, to troll him I went with ant1poison, it was taken, so I took ant1venom. Over time people mistook the 1 for a slash, calling me "Ant Venom", so I signed up my Xbox live name as that, and then took the YouTube Channel name "AntVenom", since "ant1venom" was previously suspended. That's the story.
Q: What happened to (insert series name here?)
A: One of 3 things.
1. The series ended the way it was supposed to, much like 4 Pillar Survival, Ant Farm Survival, and Extreme Ant Farm Survival.
2. The series became too boring, or difficult, much like Reliving Minecraft, Super Hostile, and Forbidden Ant Farm Survival.
3. It's a sporadic series that I never had any intention of running often.
Q: Can I be in a video with you / you be in a video of mine?
A: I do not accept requests for any co-op content unless it's with someone I am already friends with.
Q: How do I become friends with you?
A: If you are trying to become my friend for the purpose of recording with you, then you are trying to use me...not become friends with me. Don't.
Q: How did you get partnered with Machinima / how can I?
A: It's a long story, but I just made good content, and they eventually found me, and offered me a directorship. If you want one, visit machinima.com/directors-program, that's your best bet. I can't guarantee anything though, nor am I an employee of Machinima. My opinion is my own.
