Reviews, Views and Adventures in Content Creation

Friday, July 9, 2010


The most interesting development since my last entry was a conversation I had with Renetto, a vlogger who practices what he calls "lifestreaming" - recording his day to day life as completely as he can.  Today, that included an interview with me about my perspective on YouTube as a professional documentary filmmaker:

As is his practice, Renetto posted my video within the hour, and on his recommendation, I've already received a number of new subscribers.  In the YouTube world, that's an important technique in building your base - get endorsed by, or interact with other vloggers.  I'm still developing my technique (as one comment on the channel pointed out), but the growing base allows me to continue the process and receive more feedback.

I'll be looking forward to posting my summary vlog later tonight - and applying all I've learned here (and in other ways over the last few weeks) in the weeks and months to come.


  1. I met Paul back in 2008 (pre-vloggerhood) and it was an interesting event. Looks like you're having a blast out there! Keep it up and enjoy your time!

  2. Okay, good, in your first post you said you hadn't learned anything yet, here you're talking about applying what you've learned.

    Hopefully you'll let us in on what happened between those posts...

    (And Paul is a great guy, and I'm very pleased to have gotten to know him. Of course the public Renetto is an ass, but the real Paul is wonderful.)
