The power of Media


A couple weeks ago I released one of my latest youtube videos, "Parkour Meets Assassin's Creed in Real Life". It was able to hit 8 million hits in 2 weeks, making it my 2nd fastest growing youtube video, the first one being the human slingshot video.


Just last week though, my really good friend, who just happens to have my same name, Devin Dyer, he was driving down the road with his family when he saw two kids playing outside. One with a camera, and the other one was hanging off of a sign, haha.

Reminds me when I was that age, but to be honest, I think these guys are way ahead of me when I was that age!



He asked them what they were doing. And they responded that they were making an Assassin's Creed parkour video, haha, how cool is that? :) They had seen a video on youtube, and it had inspired them to pursue something positive :)

The reason I share this story, is because it's moments like this for me that make it all worth it. The endless nights of filming, editing, and traveling around the world. Just hearing how these kids were inspired reminded me the power that media has on the rest of the world, starting with this small community were these kids were making there own Assassin's Creed video. It's amazing to me how media has that power to change the world, for the better or worse.

And while were at it, here's the behind the scenes of our Assassin's Creed youtube video.

  2. I too am trying to figure out how you keep your field of focus on your glidecam. With my 5Dm2 and glidecam I have to stay the same distance from the subject to keep the field of focus (since it is almost impossible to operate the glidecam AND the focus ring) but it looks you are able to achieve a seamless field of focus. How do you do that?

    1. Never mind. I found the answer in one of your earlier posts. You use the 16-35 lens and when dialed in to the wide angle everything is pretty much in focus. You also set the focus for about 10-15 ft in front of you then you keep that same distance from the subject when moving.

      Thanks for all the great info on your blog. Now if I could just learn to walk with the same "limp" you do to keep the glidecam steady.....

  33. Excellent post. I work in Boston public relations so I'm quite aware that media is extremely powerful. We offer several key PR services that utilize media to improve the skills of our clients. Video, in particular, is something that we always use with our customers since it's extremely valuable. We recently helped a Massachusetts-based insurance agency with media training and are currently supporting them in creating a compelling video for their website. Media is a powerful thing and I can't wait to see where it takes us over the next decade.
