Viners on Youtube

Recommended Posts

I hae always been a fan of youtubers like Casey Neistat and our own stock of reviewers, from Bloom, Antos, MrrCheesyCam to Kai. I have seen this particular market become more niche, as reviewers now tend to specialist in one brand or product.

This is all enjoyable, but not inspiring (unless your goal is to do the same).

But - I have been inspired b the new crop of vloggers who have migrated from the now shuttered Vine. Why?

Because Vine was a medium with extreme limitations - it raised a very eccentric type of filmmaker that were be insanely creative within. A few have taken Youtube by storm and they are impressive, if only for sheer energy.

Viners mastered timing, sound editing and effective motion graphics. Even though I HATE the hyperactive nature of the work - I am in awe of the creativity.

take for example this video - 

I laughed my ass off. I didn't want to - but I had that experience like when I heard Howard Stern for the first time in 2002 - exhilarated (the Get John's Job series!!! - spoiler: Sal and Richard won.).

If you liked him in 2002, then you should definitely go back and listen to him during the OJ trial. His show was never as good as it was then.
