Grace, aka iamfallfromgrace on Twitch is an Australian content creator, most commonly seen streaming a variety of games on her Twitch channel. We asked Grace a few questions on how she got started in the industry, and what gear she uses to stream! Catch Grace live on Twitch here.
You’ve been live-streaming yourself playing video games for 8 years now, how and why did you get started?
I've been creating content since 2012 and honestly, it started as an attempt to pull myself out of a dark place. I'd just lost my job and was looking for something positive to focus on. I was inspired by other YouTubers and thought that I could offer a fresh perspective in the space. Little did I know that it'd be the best decision I ever made.
What's the number one tip you have for someone who wants to start streaming online?
Don't be afraid to speak up and let people know how you want to be treated. When you're just starting off you want to hold on to every viewer that comes across your stream, however, not every viewer is going to be right for you. Similarly, as a viewer, not every streamer is for you. It's paramount to set a precedent early about what is and isn't acceptable within your community. Streaming on a daily basis is taxing enough on your mental health without being mistreated by your viewership to add extra stress. If your community doesn't respect you or the other members in your community, it can lead to toxicity and I don't think any streamer wants that.
What gear are you using in your setup?
Only the best for my stream! I use the RØDE NT-1 with the AI-1 Audio Interface. Good quality audio is a must when it comes to content creation. I'd always recommend any new creators to focus on their audio before even worrying about what camera they're using.
Favourite game to play at the moment?
Oof, this is a tough one! I stream a variety, so literally a different game every day. My first instinct is Apex Legends, I just can't get enough of it. I love the adrenaline of the last few teams alive and clutching the win! Shooters have always been a constant in my gaming repertoire, in fact, I've recently got back into Call of Duty Zombies which was my main game when I first started streaming on Twitch back in 2015.
Apart from gaming, what do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Fitness is a huge passion of mine. I love setting a good example to the gaming community by showing that it is possible to game full-time and also lead a healthy lifestyle. I love pushing my body whether it's on a long run, powerlifting, or bouldering.
