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

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?

This top Top 100 video officially took the longest to edit of any other video I’ve ever made. With that being said, a lot of it had to do with my transition to another editing software (Final Cut 7 to Premiere CC), however, this was still a beast to edit.

I would like to thank my parents for allowing me to say these things while remaining alive as well as my sister who helped filmed a majority of the video!

Hope you enjoy Top 100 Things Parents Never Want To Hear! Was it worth all the editing?

This video has been a long time in the making. Initially, I decided to delay making the video because I was up for various jobs and thought the video would ruffle some feathers. Well, I didn’t get any of the jobs…so I’m ruffling ALL THE FEATHERS.

You may or may not agree with this list, you may think this list is racist, you may think I’m making up some of this stuff, but the the truth of the matter is…everything in this video has either been said to me or overheard being said to another person of color.

With that being said, there was no ill-will making this video. I love white people! And I hope they Top 100 Things White People Say to Black People as much as I do!

Have you heard or said any of these things? Don’t lie.

VIDEO: Top 100 Things Flappy Bird Players Say

There are three types of people in this world: those who love flappy bird, those who hate flappy bird, and those you have no idea what DAHECK Flappy Bird is. Hopefully, most people fall in the first two categories…otherwise this video will make no sense whatsoever.

For those unfamiliar, Flappy Bird is a simple mobile game that vaulted to the top of the app charts thanks to it’s simple design and learning curve. The game became so popular that the creator was reportedly making upwards of $50,000 per day through in-game advertising alone. The fame was so unexpected and overwhelming that it led the creator to delete the app from the app-store, spawning several spin offs. For any more information you’re just gonna have to Google it.

On a separate note, I’d like to thank all of you for your continued support despite the lack of videos! Sometimes you just gotta take a break, re-energize and re-focus. Videos are back to normal now. New videos every Sunday!

What’s your high score on Flappy Bird? Mine is 771 🙂
