How To Film Real Life

How to show the story without pissing everyone off.

Support VBJ’s writing on this blog:

I set out vlogging with the intention of doing a continuous series of my daily life — the record of a perpetually traveling author / journalist / blogger as he moves through the world with his family.

It turned out to be a little more difficult than I at first expected.

Filming real life is a challenge because your life is invariably interwoven with that of other people — and sometimes those other people don’t want their lives documented and plastered all over the internet.

Filming real life is a walk down a very thin line between showing the story while not pissing everybody off around you.
