I've long been a fan of Bing's work, as his videos are always very professional and well-edited, which is something that a lot of Youtubers lack. He's also got some hilarious comedy in his vids, and I could watch them over and over again!
Last week we got talking at a Youtube gathering in Regent's Park -which he organised- about his fanbase, why Youtube is so brilliant, and how he got started making videos.
Name: Christopher Bingham
Channel name: slomozovo (which stands for Slow Motion Zombie Voyeurism)
Subscriber count: 91,488
Youtube style: Comedy/ Sketches/ Vlogs
How did you get into making Youtube videos?
I went to school with my friend Tom (another Youtuber) and we were both into film making. We ended up going to the same uni, both studying Media Production, but we were also doing film projects outside of uni, which we put online. We started gaining an audience, and I think we were really putting more work into our films on Youtube than into our actual coursework!
Describe your videos in 5 words!
Niche experimental comedy... TIME VLOGS.
What do fans usually say when they see you in the street or at gatherings?
Well it's really different every time! But a lot of the time, people just tell me that they enjoy my videos and they want a photo.
In five years time, where do you see yourself? Still making Youtube videos or moving onto something else?
I think I'll still be using youtube- it's a fantastic platform, really. But also I'd like to make films in the future. I'm not giving up Youtube though, because without Youtube, I wouldn't have an audience!
What would be your advice to anyone thinking of making videos like you?
Do it to get better at making videos. Don't do it to get an audience. You should really always want to improve your skills- I'm still learning.

And as soon as you've done that, you should probably go take a look at Bing's channel. But be sure to tell him that NotAllAboutBoys sent you!
