Interview with the 2021 NYX Video Awards Winner - Florian Boyce

1Please give us a brief bio of yourself and your background.

Hi! My name is Florian Boyce. I once called as a "modern throwback," as I bring my high-energy brand of comedy to the stage. I grew up with various live action programs, such as "The Tonight Show", "The Flip Wilson Show" and "Cedric The Entertainer Presents,". Aside from that I am also a former professional wrestling ring announcer, in Brookly, New York.

2What led you to become a videography professional?

I actually came from the technical side. I currently have an MFA in Film Production with an emphasis in Editing from Chapman University. It was in my years working with other projects such as American Idol and the BET awards than I tried my hand at doing things from the other side of the camera.

3What is your role in the agency, and what traits should a videography professional possess to be successful in their role?

Hosting is something that comes with time and reps. Always prepare extra for your interview, with subjects, but allow yourself to go off topic to foster an organic conversation.

4Tell us more about your agency / company.

Knew Amsterdam Entertainment takes a levity based approach to multiple content forms and shows. In a world that's polarizing an emphasizing our differences, our content strikes for an edgier take on "wholesome entertainment".

5What is your own definition of a great videography?

One that allows us the viewer to determine what's important in the frame.

6Tell us more about your ideation process.

I come across a show idea or topic and ask myself, "What can I do differently?". I come from a stand up comedy and professional wrestling world, so I like to bring a slice of showmanship to whatever I do.

7Congratulations! As the winner of the NYX Video Awards, what does it mean for you and your team to receive this distinction?

It not only speaks of the quality of my work, but the dedication to release episodes on a consistent basis. I think that matters above all.

8 What are the challenges of your winning entry(ies)?

The biggest challenge is the timing. After Hours airs at 10 PM Pacific LIVE every Monday, and for a lot of guests, the time is less than ideal. But the ones that were able to make it have the best time when they arrive!

9How has the country, you are based in, helped during your ideation process?

The United States really has embraced (or invented, really) the late night talk show format, so I was surrounded by programming like "The Tonight Show" for many years. Using that as a basis, being able to bring my own spin to the genre has been an absolute pleasure.

10What resources would you recommend to someone who is searching to improve their videography ideas / skills?

"YouTube University" gets its name because you can learn practically anything from anywhere, on the platform. Start there to get basic questions answered, then use alternate sources for more in-depth resources.

11Who inspired you in your life, and why?

As a comedian and host, I was a big fan of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno has a child. I've also been a fan of Trevor Noah's work for many years as well.

12What is your key to success? Any parting words of wisdom?

"Make your hometown proud."
