When reading the video for change chapter the quote that stuck out most to me was ‘A video is only as powerful as its ability to touch the people that watch it, to connect them to the experience of the people portrayed in the film, and to motivate them to get involved to make a difference.’. This got me thinking about all the hours of useless videos I have watched online, of TV and documentaries and wondered whether people had any good suggestions of things to watch to inspire them?
Alongside this I saw on youtube that there is a new documentary to be coming out about people’s vlogs and the people behind them. There’s been such a rise in people posting about their lives on youtube and I think it’s been a really great way to hear people’s stories and I personally have felt like I have become involved in people’s lives through youtube.
Here’s the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TCN_G-KKHA
