I like sharing things that I find interesting
I love movies and photography! I'm absolutely no expert on the subject, but here are some things I thought were cool, funny, crazy, and just generally interesting :)
So some of you guys have probably looked through this website. Maybe wandered into my movies section and stumbled upon the vlogs section.
What is a vlog?
A vlog is a video diary of a person's day. It can be a daily vlog or a vlog that highlights a particularly special day in that persons life. It's not a vlog if it's shot by someone else. It has to be shot by the subject and the subject must engage their audience while explaining to them what is going on or what is about to happen.
There are thousands of vloggers on youtube. Some more popular than others. Some of my favorites:
These guys are some of the most popular/famous vloggers on youtube. They have influenced thousands of fans to start their own vlogs. Some, hoping to gain fame the way Casey, Ben, and Louis have done. Some, just want to make movies everyday on their own time, their own way.
These guys inspired me. It's pretty farfetched to say that I will reach their level of fame/popularity. And that's okay.
There are many reasons a person vlogs.
No matter what it is, they are sharing something with the world at pretty much no cost.
The purpose of my vlog is for me to have something to look back at and laugh, cry, reminisce. This summer was one of the best summers I have had and I thank vlogging for it. Vlogging kind of forced me to go explore. Try news things. Even just keep me in practice in both shooting and editing.
Another great thing that vlogging has helped me gain is some new friends from different parts of the world. I've become an admin for a Facebook group VLOGGER REVOLUTION. Through this group, I've become friends with some cool people who are also vloggers.
Check out their youtube channels. Very passionate guys with very different perspectives of the world. Oh, James doesn't vlog (yet) but he probably watches the most vloggers out of us 4 lol.
Vlogging isn't for everyone. Yes, there are hundreds and thousands of people out there who watch vlogs, but it's definitely not a main stream thing. Maybe it will be some day.
Come watch me try new things, explore new places, share my thoughts, meet new people. Come watch my vlogs.

So today we announced the creation of this website. We are very excited about it cause now people will get to know about us more and hopefully want to work with us :)
Kat and I already have another blog where I do majority of the writing. It's a food blog.
Check it out here
But yea...welcome to our film and photography site!
This blog won't really be about this either.. it's more for me to share interesting things I've found that is related to film and photography. like this:
What do you guys think of the trailer? any trailers you want to share? leave some in the comments!
Everyday, people have to deal with their problems. Whether it's a problem at home, at work, or at school. Maybe it's just an internal battle that no one else knows about. It gets tough sometimes and everyone has their way of escaping. We need an escape from these problems or else it will drive us insane. Just a short break from reality that takes us somewhere far away from these problems.
At work, it can get quite hectic. However, in the middle of all the chaos, I am able to sit at my desk and get lost in an article I found online. It's a really short escape in what seems like the middle of a battlefield. It helps.
Everyone has their favorite ways to escape. Some get lost on the internet, some love to read books, some get lost in music, some literally get lost and take a quiet walk in the woods. Vacations are something that everyones needs for an escape. My favorite is watching movies.
Did you see that coming? :-P
It's different now though. It's not just movies, but TV shows and even just videos you find on youtube. Yes I do enjoy the short funny videos on vine etc. but really, I love the videos that others create. Thank you internet for giving me access to an infinite source of escape.
I know to limit myself, don't worry.
My first post on this blog :)
Hope you stick around.
