It's finally here: the day Casey Neistat ends his daily YouTube vlogging run, which was easily one of the most epic strings of content creation known to man and one that I will not forget. The man is a legend in the creative community, and I doubt he will be going anywhere anytime soon. Where he goes next is a big mystery, but Neistat's career is one I will continue to follow.
Casey Neistat, if you don't already know, is a filmmaker, YouTuber, vlogger, and all-around content creation genius. He has brought over 500 unique videos to his channel alone with nearly five million subscribers and a billion views. That does not come easily or without incredible dedication to your craft. I give the man credit for being the best in the world at this path he paved, which is now one countless others are attempting to emulate.
Casey mentions in his latest video he will no longer be creating daily vlogs about his life and experiences. But thank God he also said he will continue to invest in YouTube as a platform for sharing his stories to the world.
I watched every single day for the last 18 months as this man has built something outstanding and inspirational in the form of his daily videos, spelling out some of his secrets to his success and creative life.
I'll admit I'm excited to see the daily's end. The extra time should give fresh blood to the life and work of Casey Neistat that hopefully allows him to hone his craft as a filmmaker and content creator for the better. I am beyond excited to see where this man pushes his career. What do you think? Has Neistat left an impression on you as a photographer, filmmaker, or creative?
