God, that is possibly the best post ever. On a conceptual level, it is revolutionary. And I love the inclusion of your only other post in this one.
genius. genius, ya know that? See Josh's comment, and I quote him. I always wanted to do a bike mount, your's was flawless.
In addition to what those guys said, Blane must know you pretty well, because he sounds a lot like you, and has some of the same mannerisms. We can tell a lot about you/Blane from this, and in such a unique way.
Wow! That was possibly the most creative way I have ever seen to do a portrait. That was really cool. I agree with the bike mount being superb as well. Great job!
I really like the idea of editing someone else's video, and if the credits are to be believed, you did some directing so it seems like you had a lot of creative control over the piece, even though someone else was acting as you. I liked the editing segments where you barely cut him off - I always think those keep it moving. They can create humor too. and yeah, didn't expect to see a steadicam-like apparatus in a vlog. nice work.
wtf? that post was...what? This blew my mind. I agree with everyone else who has commented. I would say more but I'm still processing htis posts awesomeness.
Thanks a lot, dudes! to clarify a few things, the "bike mount" and "steadicam device" were both Blaine's godlike handholding skills. This was all shot on a digital still camera, using the video function (maybe Blaine could specify the model), and to my knowledge everything's just him either holding it or setting it on something. As far as direction goes, I tried to relinquish as much control as I could, telling Blaine only what I needed to in order to get the kind of footage I wanted. This was a big part of the idea; my persona, as filtered through Blaine's understanding of it, is what I wanted to present. Blaine gets cred for all shots and dialogue, and certainly for including my previous post in a shot. So yeah, sorry if that end title was a little deceptive, the piece was definitely very collaborative in terms of content.
