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.
