INTERVIEW: ReAnimateHer

Published

In the world of content creation and streaming, it can be hard to find unique content that delivers the genre-specific vibes that you truly connect with. But, if you love horror and gaming, then Twitch streamer ReAnimateHer could be right up your alley.

“I started to stream on Twitch in 2016 for 2 months before heading to Beam which was then bought by Microsoft who turned it into Mixer” ReAnimateHer told me about her start in streaming. “My first stream on Beam was February 14, 2017 I made Partner on February 9, 2018 it was Mixer at the time. I was the biggest Horror creator on the platform. Then June of 2020 happened and via a Twitter Post I along with many others found out our home is being closed. This was a huge blow to many of us and caused quite a bit if stress and mental health distress. I started to stream on Twitch full-time in June 2020 and made Partner in 2 days. Still unsure what or how but they offered it to me.”

 

ReAnimateHer has been carving a space for herself, and her podcast, in the world of horror ever since.
“The content that I create is in the Horror realm. From Indie Horror Games to Web Shows. Mainly indie horror games where I play and give reviews. I Utilize my YouTube channel for reviews and gameplay as well.”

 

The content continues with her podcast, which you can find on YouTube and her official website as well.

 

“The podcast at first was just a Vodcast or Webshow where I spoke about Horror movies & TV shows. We call them autopsies it is where I research in depth behind the scenes and how the movie started.  Which then involved into Interview with people who work within the Horror industry from Directors to Artists and everything in between.  People enjoyed the webshow so much they asked me to turn it into audio for podcasts so that is how the podcast was created. Some of the amazing guests I had on the show was B. Harrison Smith director of Death Camp, Vincente DiSanti director/producer of Never Hike in the Snow, James Sweet director of Jason Rising, Todd Farmer writer/actor of Jason X. I have had some many fun interviews on CCoH you are able to catch the video episodes over on my YouTube then the audio over on my Website”

As far as podcasting goes, while ReAnimateHer has made streaming a big part of her content creation, she does not see much opportunity for podcasting on Twitch at the moment.

 

“I find many people on twitch get buried under all the other stuff on the platform. I think it is beneficial to start in other places and build up. If you have an already established channel and marketing for your podcacst I think you would do OK but not where I would start tbh. I honestly do not see any Pros to starting on Twitch none at this time that come to mind.”

 

With 2021 proving to be a solid year for her content, ReAnimateHer has her eyes set on doing even more in 2022.

 

“Remain an indie horror game channel. I always go by what the Horde my community on what they want and where they want to watch. There may be less streams on Twitch as I focus more on YT. Indie games do very well over there live and vod wise. Where popular games seem to do well on both Platforms but as for Twitch trendy games is where its at. The only creators I know who are “big” now in the indie or horror section established their now communities with other games that were popular at the time then once they had that they moved to other games. Don’t get me wrong that is a smart move I mean why wouldn’t you move forward.”
