Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
I'm the co-founder of Beme and a YouTuber! I've produced two feature films, wrote and directed an HBO series and created a number of short films for the New York Times. In early 2014 my focus shifted to creating a platform that enabled users to share their experiences and perspective via video without the burden of having to create a video.

Hey Casey - Thanks for joining us today. 1) What's your core competence when it comes to building an audience/creating content - what are you best at ? 2) What do you think you understand about building an audience and creating content that most people don't and can learn from (don't be modest!) :)

Piggy-backing @rrhoover's question with, "@caseyneistat, what's the most memorable video you created?". Also, welcome... Been a huge fan of your work since the beginning of your YouTube channel. :)
Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@rrhoover Most proud of... Creating Beme is number 1. Making something that enables others has always been an ambition of mine. Regrets are a funny thing, I take a big step back and look at my life - I am happy, I love my life - it was my mistakes, my failures just as much as my successes that got me here so to parse that out and say I wish I hadn't... that doesn't feel right
Ryan Hoover
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt

How much footage goes into one Vlog? I have started making videos of my trips around the world and over 3 or 4 days its a lot of video. I know you talked takes up a good chuck but the other parts of it like, the time lapse and the running must not be easy to do.
@caseyneistat Hey Casey, great to see you again (on the 'net) and thanks for doing this AMA. How do you do all that you do? You seem to have limitless energy (like, I can't believe you produce daily vlogs + launched an app + have a baby).

Dawid
Dawid@dawidgrime · Grime Kid
Hey Casey!! Two questions, how did you come up with the name Beme? Were you aiming for the "Be Me" (be with me) theme when thinking of the name, even tho it's pronounced different? Peace and love from UK, you're such an inspiration to all the lazy asses of the world.
Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@dawidgrime Beme is meant to share your perspective, to show the world what life is like as you. beme (pronounced beam) is what it's called. Be me is what it does.

Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@ems_hodge I was really excited to get a job in the kitchen just before my son was born. I was on welfare at the time and had no ideas how I, at age 16, was going to support a family. The manager hired a kid with no education and little experience. I was so excited and proud to finally get to work.

Thierry Meier
Thierry Meier@thierrymeier_ · Product Designer
Casey, I am wondering why you decided to wait 1.5-2 years to launch Beme and get real-world feedback. I am aware of the fact that you recruited beta testers. However, I'd have expected of Casey Neistat to ship and fail fast in order to create the best possible product. Can you elaborate on your decision and process? You mentioned legal issues often, was it mainly that that held you back? If so, would you have launched the product differently if there wouldn't have been any legal issues?
Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@thierrymeier_ not sure what you're talking about 1.5-2 years?? we shipped a primitive beta publicly as soon as viably possible. there was no holding, no pausing. we got our earliest, rawest, version of the product into consumers hands as soon as we could. the learning doesn't begin until real world users have access to a product - we started that process at the very earliest opportunity we could find
Thierry Meier
Thierry Meier@thierrymeier_ · Product Designer
@caseyneistat Appreciate the response. In a couple of interviews (Vaynerchuk and Altucher I think) you mentioned that you've been working on Beme for almost the last two years. Can you give us some insight how much of those two years were spent at different stages? E.g. ideation process, raising money, designing and developing the product etc. -- I think that would be interesting for everyone to get a sense of how Beme, chronologically, came to be.

Yo Casey! Big fan. Couple Q's: 1) I've been working on a 360 video using a 6 x GoPro setup, but the quality is truly awful (like your first one) once it lands on YouTube. Did anyone there speak to you/let you know that it's going to be improved soon? 2) For your time-lapses, do you just put your camera on video mode or use a load of images? 3) How is Beme's traction coming along? Have you found that specific territories are picking it up more than others? Where is thriving the most? Peace
@marty he records in normal video mode then speeds up hope this helps👍

Where do you see video editing technology going in the near future? There seems to be a huge gap between iMovie/Avid/etc. and completely casual editors like the Vine in-app editor. Is there anything in between that you use or are interested in?
Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@benjiwheeler Editing software will always progress, always make it easier to do more with less. But people will always fall into one of two buckets; those who want to use editing software to create and those who don't. It's the latter that intrigues me. So much of the thesis behind Beme is to enable sharing without that burden of creation. Why should a medium like video be limited to those who are willing to sit and create something?? what happens when, with technology, you can empower those who don't want to be bothered with the process of creation?/
Benjamin Wheeler
Benjamin Wheeler@benjamin_wheeler · Teaching and making tech. Indie hacker.
@caseyneistat Another way of looking at Beme and the trends you're talking about is through the lens of the movement away from high-friction, high-scale creation towards continuous creation of small bits of content. Eg, retweet/tumbling as the lowest friction version of writing a blog post; 140 chars only slightly more in the direction of active creation. Beme is creation, but with minimal overhead because it's in real time. That can still involve a lot of creation, but the limitations have the potential to be liberating. Cf Robert Rodriguez's filming El Mariachi entirely in single takes, "editing" as he went in-camera.

Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat@caseyneistat
@m_roro traveling the world through other peoples perspective. we have a big tv at Beme HQ that is a live feed of bemes being posted. I watch the location, then the image. It captures my imagination in a way that's almost indescribable - as if I am teleporting around the world seeing life, real life, as it's happening.
Billy Cano
Billy Cano@billycano · regional sales director
@caseyneistat I think that giving this feature to users (in landscape view) on Beme would be incredible! It would also drive follows...more than "interesting stranger."
@caseyneistat this should/could be a public feature
3DAM
3DAM@_3dam_
@billycano The TV in the HQ is showing 3 side-by-side Beme videos at the same time so it's not in landscape view. And I think there are no landscape views as the video is 4 seconds long and you would lose some of it while turning your phone, as you don't expect it to be in landscape view
Billy Cano
Billy Cano@billycano · regional sales director
@_3dam_ I understand its 3 different SBS beme's, I just think it would be awesome to have 3 beme feeds (viewed in landscape like the tv) on the app. You could tap on any feed you find interesting to follow that person.

@jeremymelloul I have produced 2 feature films. Right now making a feature is of little interest to me. My daily vlogs reach more people in a more dynamic way than either of my (very successful) features. Beme reaches, enables, users from all over the world to share ideas and perspectives using video - I would struggle to see making a feature as a greater or more impactful contribution than my current endeavors

@caseyneistat Beme has the tagline "Share video. Honestly". What constitutes "Honestly" or "Authenticity"?. You once featured a Beme user on your youtube channel who talked about bemeing "Quidditch" (harry potter sport), which does not necessarily imply "Honestly" or honest video sharing, if I am not wrong. Could you elaborate on what really separates video sharing on Beme in comparison to youtube, excluding the 4-second window and sensor-based recording?. Or to put it simply, What content are you looking for in Beme?

@caseyneistat Hey Casey, huge fan from Romania, hope you liked the sticker I just sent you, you got everything you need to print it out! Hope you are doing awesome! I'm a college student in my last year studying Graphic Design, hope to get one day to NY, dreaming big, keeping my hopes high! Any good tips for a young designer trying to make it there ?

@caseyneistat what are your honest opinions of this new snapchat update
These questions may not even be relevant, but where did you get your Converse shoes from? And can you tell me a VERY detalied guide on filmmaking for newbies, so i can get into it myself? Like, filmangles and ways to make a good movie, gear, (please make it cheap, haha) etc. Last question: How do you stay so motivated and were you this motivated in your teenage years? Your films are amazing, keep up the good work and have a good time.

@caseyneistat I live in India. This is the first time i heard your name and googled, watched the Bike Lanes video. It was great and mind blowing. The amount of hard work you put in there is really something we all need to learn. Did you hurt yourself a lot? Thank you.

Hi Casey, I have been watching your daily vlogs for a very long time now, and I must say that you are one of the most inspirational people I have seen in a long time. I absolutely love the outstanding videography and creativity that goes into your vlogs, and it is really impressive to see how quickly you churn these videos out and manage Beme at the same time! So my question to you is: If development times were lightning fast, ​and the sky was really the limit, what would be your ultimate vision for the future of Beme and what would it end up evolving into? It would be awesome if you could answer my question and it would be great to get a Beme shirt ;) Keep it real! Nicoló S

@caseyneistat Hey Case, super happy to be able to ask you a question. I'm a 15 yr old filmmaker and I find it very hard to actually get up and make a movie. I know you've probably been in the same place so I'm just wondering what is your advice for me?
Hey Casey l love what you do and I follow your everyday life via your vlogs. questions that I have is that how do you manage everything to keep track off and have you ever wanted to have free time by your own self alone? what do you do when you get tired of doing something over and over?
@caseyneista The following questions may not even be relevant, but where did you get your Converse shoes from? And can you tell me a VERY detalied guide on filmmaking for newbies, so i can get into it myself? Like, filmangles and ways to make a good movie, gear, (please make it cheap, haha) etc. Last question: How do you stay so motivated and were you this motivated in your teenage years? Your films are amazing, keep up the good work and have a good time.

Hey Casey, your VLOG inspired me to start my own weekly VLOG to accompany my tech channel on youtube! Thanks for that......what is your advice for how to make each VLOG have a story or "theme" do you think of that at the beginning of the day and then target what you film based on that or what?
