One of the activities in my book Naked Lens show you how to make a time capsule (on video) for a family member to view in the future. Filmmaker and video blogger Jeremiah McDonald takes this a step further in the video blog below when he “interviews” his twelve year old self.
Clever edits and cutbacks make this video a shining example of great video blogging. It is also a reminder of the value of the material we gather over the years. What is everyday and perhaps mundane now, will look very different twenty years later. The next time you are too busy to turn on your video camera and shoot something, remember Jeremiah’s video and take a few minutes to share something. Your future self will thank you.
