Tonight, I met a famous internet person. Yep. Someone who’s video has garnered some 40 million hits on YouTube. He turned out to be quite a normal guy, who seems to be on a storytelling mission of epic proportions through dancing. He’s had three successful videos on the topic – 2005, 2006, and 2008. Now, in 2010 he’s working on one for a completion date of 2011.
Also in class we talked about the difference between subject and story. Knowing the distinction between the two is going to be super helpful with our group project. The example given in class was that you can have “snowboarding” as the subject for your video, but it’s what story you tell around it that becomes the focal point.
