GF: Were people at school supportive of your YouTube?
Georgia: Yeah, when I first started it when I was 13, everyone loved it. Then, I got to 15 or 16, those awkward try-hard years when I hadn't quite worked out who I was. I did cop a bit of it from peers at school. But hey, we all grow up and I've forgiven those people now.
GF: Did those people giving you a hard time ever make you want to give up YouTube?
Georgia: Surprisingly no, I was a quite the oblivious person! If someone said "Oh my god Georgia, I love your videos" in a sarastic way, I'd be like, "Oh my god, thanks!" I kind of just let those things bounce off me, which I wish I could still do as well today!
GF: Do you deal with any online trolling now?
Georgia: I get the occasional hate comment, but of course, it doesn't really affect me. If anything, it's just like, "Oh well, someone's wasted their time writing something like that!"
GF: What do you think you would be doing for a career if it wasn't YouTube?
Georgia: Probably a music teacher specialized in teaching students how to play the triangle. (laughs) Just kidding. No, probably a TV presenter, still something in front of a camera.
GF: With social media changing all the time, do you ever feel the pressure to build a following on platforms like TikTok?
Georgia: Not really. I'm quite content with the platforms I'm on at the moment. I find the more social media I have, the less social I become!
GF: How do you create boundaries between your social media life and your real life?
Georgia: Well, I don't post every move I make. The world doesn't need to know about my little sushi date with my boyfriend, or when I'm spending time with my family or indulging in a Magnum something. Some things are better kept private, hence why I'm Georgia Productions.
GF: Was that a very conscious decision to from the start, to keep your last name out of it?
Georgia: Yep, it was something that my parents set as a rule and it never changed. So, I thank them for that.
GF: What do you think someone needs in order to start a YouTube channel?
Georgia: You just need yourself and your personality. In terms of gear, I'd say honestly you can even just use your phone to start and an editing app on your phone. Or, if you have a Mac, there's iMovie on that. From there, you can slowly upgrade with different cameras if you want to take it more seriously
GF: What's been your biggest career highlight thus far?
Georgia: It would have to be meeting The Rock and Kevin Hart! I absolutely adore those guys. It was a relief because you sometimes worry that celebrities aren't going to be the same in real life. But they would just what you'd expect, they were lovely.
GF: What's next for you in 2020?
Georgia: With a job like YouTube. I just honestly never know what's going to happen next. I never know what my next job is going to be or what awesome opportunity is going to pop up. just play it by ear and try to trust myself and my decisions. I'm not too worried about what the future holds at the moment, cause it's looking alright!
