Check Out Custom Motion’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Custom Motion. 

Hi Custom, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself
I wanted to do YouTube since around the age of 10 or 11 years old. Once I was a freshmen and sophomore in high school, I’ve been telling my friends I think I could do YouTube and have tried to get them to start with me. I officially started my YouTube with my close friend who I would consider my brother now, RealDJTownsend. I would wake up at 5:00AM to schedule my video to be posted at 5:00PM same day, and then Vlog my day at school or wherever I went. Would come home at 4:00 to go to work at Domino’s at 5:00-11:00, get home and edit the video until 2:00AM, and repeat. So, I was very busy back then. Then TikTok blew up and that’s where most people know me from. I started doing public interviews and public pranks and was having fun. I posted 2 videos a day for 2 or 3 months straight and kept the same hashtags and then I took off all the way to 60.7K followers. It still isn’t a “big” fan base but it’s definitely a fanbase and I love all of them who support me. Kept doing TikTok and eventually went to the studio with one of my closest friends Lee Sensay. I posted on my Instagram story if I should try making a song and my followers said yes. So, I asked the producer how I start recording because I was so new, and he said to just go in the booth and speak into the mic. So that’s what I did, and my first song that was made is called “How I’m Movin” and I have “All I Had” dropping December 31st, two more singles and then my album. I’m very excited to drop the album because I think it’s a 20/20, no skip, solo album! And that’s about it, still grinding and waking up every day focused on music so we’ll see where I end up later in life 

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I had a viral video get taken down same day it was posted on YouTube. I was 17 and excited because my video had just hit 50K in a day and I was never pulling numbers like that. YouTube decided to take it down because they age restricted it, and I’m under 18 so that would mean I can’t even watch my own video, so they took it down, and banned me for 3 months. TikTok had banned me from making me money (but I could still post) for 6 months, I’m banned until the 26th of this month. Had some people who were closer than you can imagine switch and betray me. It feels like no real love sometimes once you start growing, but I still keep my mind on my goals and chase them. 

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I make music now and it is out on every platform. My artist name is: Custom Motion. I do videos on TikTok as well such as public pranks and public interviews, my @ is “custom_motion” everywhere. I’m very proud of having a video reach 6.1 Million views, very proud of multiple videos with 1 Million+ views. Very proud of how serious I’m taking music, and very proud of being able to understand how people move once you start getting that spark in your life 

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Consistency is the most important characteristic when it comes to success. Nobody knows you when you start, u gotta keep putting your face out there so you become recognizable, then you’ll start to grow, but consistency is key, and that phrase is no lie. Dedication is another characteristic. Quality is very important as well. Any video can be done on an iPhone now a days, and I mean that, just edit the video good so the quality of how interesting the video is, gets better. Visual quality shouldn’t be a problem as long as you got an updated iPhone
