Casey did the keynote at BufferFestival in Toronto on the weekend so I picked up some tickets to see the short films after Casey’s talk.
( I loved Melanie Murphy’s short film about abortion and the struggle women in Ireland face BTW at Buffer Festival)
The kids went downtown Toronto since we were going to hit the all night art fest. I’m a Casey fan on how he documents things and his storytelling. This past July… he did a keynote and I wanted to post it below if you ever wanted to listen to him a little more.
Casey Neistat is an American film director, producer, developer, and creator of popular YouTube videos. Neistat attained commercial success with the HBO series The Neistat Brothers and indie film Daddy Longlegs. With ten years of experience in creating TV commercials, Neistat took his story-telling ability and married it with his commercial experience to re-define branded content on the internet with companies such as Mercedes and Nike. Most recently, Neistat’s technology company, Beme, was acquired by CNN.
Two videos. Above is the storytelling on how he jumps around to tell a story that is shot by just him. How he moves the camera around to get a different POV and help with focus on different parts. How he uses music and old footage of him.
Below: Yes a quick trip but just how he films traveling which is tough and he tries to capture it a different way by counting down the hours. His cuts and how he moves the camera around to capture from a different POV.
