Hi. I'm Manderz. From Brooklyn.
I come with a three year warranty, and more cup holders than anyone
else guarenteed or your money back. Batteries not included.
I think television is an underrated 'art' form, and hope to someday
soon be a producer/properties master for film and television productions.
Here are some things that I like.
Here is another thing you can look at that I did:
pray for me. im so nervous.
here is my prediction for the future:
at some point, because of vimeo’s more user-friendly interface, ability to make contacts, and focus on hd videos, it is going to surpass youtube similar to the way facebook surpassed myspace, though not necessarily to the same extent.
here’s what i mean. i think that comedy groups and people on youtube like balloonshop, brad neely, bo burnham, fred, derrick comedy, olde english comedy, magic hugs, briTANick, and mitchell davis are going to start using vimeo as their main video site. i think this is due to a combination of factors, such as the way vimeo looks, because they have connections at connected ventures, and because of the preference for hd videos on vimeo.
so when these people do that, their subscribers will follow them, especially if they stop using youtube almost completely. this will bring more users to the site, and more people trying to imitate those people by making their own comedy videos/vlogs. as the site gains more popularity, more people will join in an effort to gain more viewers.
now of course i dont think youtube is going to go under or anything, i just think that it will be mostly made up of homemade grainy videos documenting accidents and people sleeping or getting pranked, babies and cats doing strange/adorable things, and music videos. so its going to get a lot sketchier. in the way the myspace is much sketchier (though it always kinda was, wasn’t it?).
if you look at myspace now, it mostly consists of musicians, and the social networking equivalent of videos of a cat hanging on a ceiling fan that is rotating.
i have considered that in order to use vimeo to the best of its ability, you need to pay money. however i think that it has the potential to take over even so. people will make do with the free version.
i think that at some point in the future, vimeo is going to get a lot more popular, and become more of a household name, while youtube will lose a large portion of its more high quality videos
in conclusion, vimeo is going to facebook youtube.
When I’m sitting up at 3 in the morning planning and re planning my next semester at college, reading articles about Connected Ventures/College Humor and how it came together, looking up books on lighting for film, thinking up easier, cheaper, and tastier ways to make fake vomit, scheduling times when my friend can give me a crash course in stage and film makeup, reserving tickets for shows at the UCB that are at outrageously late hours considering the time I have to be up the next day for work, doing interviews with my mom’s co-worker in an effort to understand how IAC works, how Connected Ventures fits into all that, and just who the fuck Barry Diller is, I take a moment and wonder if I should really be killing myself in an effort to get this non paying internship, which there is a beyond huge likelihood that I will never get, and that I have not applied for yet because its not the right time/I don’t know if I’m even slightly good enough yet.
And then something like today happens, and I feel totally great about all that, and actually hopeful that I have a small shot in hell at landing this job.
And I’m going to take that small shot in hell, and cling for dear life.
So I’ve schedualed my buggin out running around my house like a five year old time for the weekend so it should be out of my system by Monday.
Also, spending 9 hours in the lobby of the IAC building last night was such a good thing because now I’m used to it and won’t get all jittery/nervous when I enter the building.
Going upstairs is going to be another story.
What the fuck is Jest?
What does this mean?
What is going on?
