In this video, popular vlogger Casey Neistat shows you what it is like to have a $23,000 first class seat on a flight from Dubai to the United States.  What is really astounding in this video is not the skill with which Casey has to make you feel like you are there on the plane with him, but the way in which he takes you though the whole flight in just 9 minutes. 

Some takeaways from this video for you:

His editing (see above).

Shooting sequences:  Pay attention to the sequences he shoots, and how he makes sure to get different angles so it will edit together.

Music: it's not wallpaper music, he uses it in the right places to move the story along.

Gear: Casey lists his gear in the description, but he does this with little more than a DSLR, a mic and a GoPro.

Access: notice that he has no shame shooting the video.  Most people may be timid shooting video on a plane, particularly first class, but not Casey, and it really makes the video.

Casey does videos like these for almost everything he does so check him out on YouTube.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.

What TV News Could Be

When television was invented in the 1930s, no one knew what TV news was supposed to look like. The medium had never existed before, and so, like Gutenberg half a millennium, prior, the first creators of TV news had to fall back on a medium with which they were familiar, and that was radio.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.
