Source : How to vlog like Casey Neistat by Casey Neistat

1. Rule #1 📜: The Story

Casey tries to create a story for each of his vlogs that he publishes to capture the attention of his audience. He builds each of his episodes in 3 acts because that's what makes his stories well-told and captures the attention of his viewers.

Act 1: The introduction

  • Putting it all together
  • Example: Jack and Jill went up the hill to get a bucket of water

Act 2: The heart of the story

  • The conflict
  • Example: Jack fell and broke his crown

Act 3: The end of the story

  • The resolution
  • Example: Jill came to save him

What he says to himself is that he doesn't want to show his whole life to the public, but he wonders what part of his life could be the subject of a 3 act vlog.

2. Rule #2 🎬 : Animation

There must be a fair mix of these two different shots

1. Fixed shot with a wide view

  1. With the help of a Tripod
  2. Goal #1: To feel like you are speaking directly to the target
  3. Goal 2: Know where and in what room or place you are to feel more like you are with him
  4. Goal #3: These shots allow the user to forget about the camera for a second and focus on the content he is giving in the environment he is in

2. Shooting in motion

  1. Goal #1: Feel the spontaneity and priorities that are part of his daily life
  2. Goal #2: To give videos a boost
  3. Goal #3: Feel like you're in Casey Neistat's life

3. Rule 3 ⚙️ : The material

Casey has a very simple rule in terms of material for his videos, use the material you have at your disposal.

1. High-end equipment

  • For studio scenes
  • It shoots in 4k, with a high-end lens, adapted lights

2. Mid-range equipment

  • For outdoor scenes
  • He films with his phone

The main thing is not to shake and not to make blurry videos.
If you do, he advises you to send it straight to the trash and start again, no one likes to watch this quality of videos even if it is published by the biggest YouTubers!

4. Rule 4 🛰️ : Time Laps and drone sequences

No time lapse or drone footage for no reason, this type of image quickly becomes boring if there is no connection with the content of the video

  • Goal n° 1 of this type of images: To make fast transitions between two scenes

Example: When he films on location and returns to his studio, between these two shots, there may be a drone sequence or time lapse of the city

  • Goal #2 of this type of image: Show a wider view of where you are to put the user in context

Example: When he films himself on the beach of a hotel, the drone allows him to show a huge view of the whole hotel and where he is

5. Rule #5 🫵: Your originality

Your personality and uniqueness

  • You must have your own "thing".
  • If people follow you, they don't want to see what Casey Neistat says, they want to see what you have to say
  • Everyone is inspired by each other and the important thing is to come up with something unique that belongs to you alone
  • And so this is the most important rule and the one that makes a YouTuber successful, you have to be original
