A couple of weeks ago… Casey wanted to finish putting together a little movie about a trip he took with his son in 2012.  Love the journal he kept as they travelled documenting things with photos, video and paper with a mini-scrapbook.

Exploring.

Documenting with life and with kids.

As you might have heard… Casey is stopping his daily vlog a short time ago. He just sold his app Beme to CNN for 25 mil and will be starting up a separate media company for CNN next year announced today.  I’ve enjoyed just how creative his is with his eye for the angles and edits.  I’m looking forward to the little videos he produces.

It’s Not The Things | It’s The Memories

Yesterday’s Vlog by Casey was cool since he went back to tell a little story of when he climbed Mount Kilimanjaro

It’s always nice when he goes back to pull old footage and tell a story.  Near the end he talks about what his Mother told him… and I agree with him and not her.

This video reminds me of another story that is below when him and his buddy Graham climbed another mountain.  I love his story telling.

Jesus.  I need to climb a hill.  Just a hill.  Have to start somewhere.

Why I Admire How Casey Neistat Tells A Story + Edits + Documents Life

Why do I enjoying watching Casey’s YouTube Channel everyday to see his yesterday?

It is simply his outlook on life and his storytelling along with his editing.  Dude makes a video of everyday an films it in a very interesting style to help tell a story.  He gets better and better at his editing and how he films sequences from other points of view is wild.  The video above highlights some of this.

Interesting video from Nerdwriter below that highlights certain things.  If you watch is vlog… you will notice he is over 500 days in a row.  His channel just passed 1 Billon views.  His daily view average on his daily vlogs is around 1.5 million.  He is at 4.2 Million subscribers.

Someone went through his vlogs… and edited his perspective on things.  It’s very interesting and you can watch it to get an idea of what makes him tick.  It’s kind of his “meaning of life”.  So much good advice.

Here is Part Two below:

If you watch his vlogs more closely and focus on the time and effort he uses to set up shots or add in little details to his surrounding space… is wild.  Dude shoots footage during the day… then edits the footage deciding what to keep and what to not use and also adds music to highlight the story.

My fave vlogs are when he is traveling.  Here is some in a row right here:

 


I also like the little story of Casey + Candice and it’s great that he can go back in his archives and grab footage and bring it into his stories.

Trying to do some little storytelling of my own is humbling and makes me appreciate how effortlessly easy it is… and it’s not.

Casey + Candace | Hell Of A Day Flying Out | Flew on The Big Lufty

Casey had a booked flight with United Airlines and after that plane was grounded and delayed… UA staff rebooked him on our airline to fly from IAH to FRA and then to VCE… where he then took off from there.

It was sweet to see him flying business class on the Airbus A380 that holds close to 600 peeps in the flying tube.  He had the upper-deck that holds 80 business pax.

In the second video you get a better understanding at his frustration in regards to having his luggage delayed as well as Candace has some coffee accidentally poured on her.  It was great to see Candace so carefree and happy just to get away from the craziness of NYC and the baby for a little vacation.  Even with no luggage she is happy and calm and you can see it in her face in the second video like a little fish being reunited with the sea.

 

It’s nice to see Casey stop daily vlogging after 500 and somthing straight days.  I’m sure he will capture it and he will share some stories when he gets back.  Below is the little recap video of the trip he posted after he got back and settled in to daily vlogging again.

Everyday… I watch is yesterday on his YouTube channel here.

Trip To Nova Scotia | July 2016

Such a fun trip to take the kids down to Nova Scotia for a week and visit with family and explore a bit of the South Shore.  Created a little video made up of little quick video clips shot with my cracked iPod and brought into iMovie to make a little keepsake of the trip.  I will add some more images into this blog post shortly.

Dad Films His Daughter Every Single Week For 14 Years | The Result Is Breathtaking.

Monday, February 15th, 2016

tumblr_n4xbez8nZS1t8bmq4o1_500An incredible 14 years in the making, this viral video shows Lotte Hofmeester grow from a baby to a beautiful teen in a mere 4 minutes and five seconds.

Lotte’s father, Frans Hofmeester, started taking video of his daughter as soon as she was born on October 28, 1999. “She was changing at such a rapid pace, that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories intact,” he writes on his website.

The result of his perseverence is this gorgeous tribute to the first 14 years of his daughter’s life, and a heartbreaking expression of the common experience of all parents who watch their children grow from infants into adults right before their eyes.
