VIDEO: Dear Diary – I Went to Sweden

June 11, 20150 Comments

 

Never in my life did I imagine making YouTube videos would take me all the way to Sweden. But, it did. And it was amazing. The whole trip was an experience that I will never forget, highlighted by the fact that I was racing a 3-d version of my head, which is now chilling in my house.

Sweden was very cold though and I definitely did not pack properly. For some reason, I assume everywhere should be as warm as Orlando, Florida. It wasn’t.

I would like to personally thank Urban Ears and everyone who helped put this together. Urbanears could have easily picked YouTubers to make video reviews about their product, which many companies do. Instead, they had us race 3-d replicas of our heads and provided us with lifelong memories.

Still can’t believe I went to Sweden. Let me know if you guys have any questions about the trip!

Did any of you guys win a headset?

VIDEO: Dear Diary – Big News

So Urban Ears contacted me about creating a video for their new campaign #RadioHeads. Once I heard the concept I was immediately in. The concept alone is amazing, coupled with the fact I get a free trip to Sweden? Could I really ask for anything more.

I’ve never been to Sweden, although I have visited Europe before. Literally no clue what to expect. I didn’t even check the weather cause no matter what happens I’m still wearing my cutoffs.

Have you been to Sweden? Which places should I visit?

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Jit, Murk, Thirsty

April 29, 20150 Comments

 

This was by far the most tedious Ghetto Vocab video I have ever edited in my lifetime. Granted, I’ve only done four. That’s not the point. The point is, it took twice as long as all the other ones.

Why, you may ask? The audio. I got dominated recording this. The secondary audio recorder malfunctioned on almost everyone, which is why my mom only has about one line. Well, exactly one line. Shoutout to my mother for being a good sport about it.

On the positive side, at least it’s finished and I can move on with my life now. Plus, now I know my way around Adobe Audition now…after watching countless tutorials on how to improve audio. Glass half-full.

VIDEO: Not About That Life 15

April 19, 20150 Comments

 

Not About That Life 15 is here! Shoutout to everyone who can identify with the broke sections of this video. On a serious note though, you should be able to pro-rate your chicken nuggets. This doesn’t make any type of sense.

And girls seriously do not understand the meaning of the word best. It’s a problem. You cannot just create new categories so you can have best friends. I’m your best light-skin black friend? DAHECK? Really? Really…

VIDEO: Stuff Gator Fans Say 2

April 12, 20158 Comments

 

I decided I wanted to create some more Stuff Fans Say videos and what better way than to start with Stuff Gator Fans Say 2! As an alum, I feel like so much has transpired since the original Stuff Gator Fans Say video. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one thinking this video needed a refresh.

Stuff Gator Fans Say YouTube CommentThis video captures the ending of the Muschamp and Driskel era and the frustration every Gator fan felt, watching that dreadful offense game after game, season after season. Similarly, the essence of our disdain for our rival school FSU is documented in full glory, chalk-full of Jameis Winston references to boot.

Some are suggesting that I must make a Stuff Nole Fans Say 2 to be fair. What do you think? What team should I do next?

UPDATE: This video was featured in The Orlando Sentinel and AlligatorArmy

We are now in week 3 of Ghetto Vocab now. It’s officially a thing.

We shoot two episodes at a time when we film these things. I know what’s in store. All I can say is…prepare for greatness.

VIDEO: Not About That Life 14

March 9, 201511 Comments

 

I’m not gonna lie, I feel like I’m starting to repeat myself a little bit in Not About That Life. To be fair, it has been fourteen episodes. I know for sure I repeated myself when talking about taking a picture with a baby, but that’s only because I wanted to have a full online dating segment.

The way I make these videos is I have a list on my phone. Anytime something foolish occurs, I write it down on my list. Sometimes I don’t use everything on the list, but then I think I did use it because it was on the list in the first place.

The point is, the list has been erased and re-started.

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Bae, On Fleek, Bye Felicia

March 2, 20154 Comments

 

I’ve decided Ghetto Vocab will now be a weekly series. From now on, I’m switching to two videos every week, with Ghetto Vocab airing every Wednesday.  It’s about to get real.

This episode took way too long to edit, primarily because I noticed a dead pixel in the footage. I decided it would be a great idea to attempt to remove this in post-production. It took longer than anticipated AND at the conclusion, I noticed another dead pixel -_____-

Oh well.

Side note: I’m still getting used to sitting down and doing videos…it’s a little weird since I standup in almost EVERY other video I do. Baby steps.

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Yolo, Yeet, Thot

February 23, 20155 Comments

 

So Ghetto Vocab has been an idea I’ve had for well over a year now. I randomly decided to make it this week. I like the idea of having a series like this because it takes the stress off me being so creative. I can share the load with my friends, most of whom are from my acting class.

Definitely let me know what you think of the new series. The goal is to put out one per week in addition to another original video like Not About That Life or a Top 100. We’ll see what happens.

I’m serious about this series though. I even bought the domain GhettoVocab.com so you know it’s real.

VIDEO: Top 100 Things Not to Say During a Job Interview

January 22, 201520 Comments

 

Let me start this off by saying, this is my favorite video I’ve ever made, replacing Top 100 Things Not to Say to a Cop. Coincidentally, it was also the video that took the longest to edit. Probably because I decided to alter my outro…in addition to shooting a lot of coverage.

As far as logistics, I shot this video at Purple Rock Scissors, a digital agency that a couple of my friends work at, using some friends from my acting class. It did feel a little weird saying some of these lines, however, if you knew some of the things that went on during our acting class, this was nothing in comparison.

If I learned anything through this experience, it’s that filmmaking is truly about relationships and connections. This video alone is a testament to that. Having a solid location and actors does wonders for a video.

Let me know which number you thought was the funniest! And what Top 100 video should I make next?

UPDATE: This video was featured on RightThisMinute, head over to the press page to watch it!
