VLOGs and More

Last Thursday Joe Van Cleve wrote about video editing which segued into Casey Neistat and his daily, yes daily, posting of video logs or VLOGs. As JVC wrote “daily activities in pieces that soon came to be known as VLOGs…”. Now to be clear here, Casey did not get VLOG as something that he invented. (do we call these pieces TLOG? Typewriter Logs?) I do not thing that JVC was saying this, but I do want it #¢ to be clear. Video logging of daily activities came to us with videos displacing film. Another event that marked was Vlogbrother, which launched on January 1 , 2007 when two brothers, John and Hank Green, vowed to give up all text based communication for a year. Instead they took turns sending each other a video daily. You can check Wikipedia for “vlog” and “vlogbrothers” for more information on this subject. And do watch a few Casey Neistat vidoes from the time he was sending out daily videos on his life. I watched all of them for a year. What a way to start each day.

Side note: I wrote a piece on this subject last Monday. It just didn’t sit well with me. This is a v2 version. You can catch that episode at https://saunter.us/my_typed_page/ and scroll down a bit to find VLOGing and Curiosity. e

You might, you just might, want to watch some Casey Neistat. I paused in this to watch “You Can’t” and “Make It Count* ‘Bike Lanes” is another one to don’t miss. In 2011 Casey got a ticket for not riding in the bike lane. He made a video on that subject. It was a video that launched his career.

Can you imagine shooting, editing, and getting a video up one day at a time for a full year? Even if you think you can’t, you can and if nothing else you will become a much stronger video
