Watch the Video

This is a collaborative effort of 35 different vloggers who all sent video content to KityKity and she edited this video together. There are other vlogger collaborations going on right now so get involved with this one from


We are looking for a few good men and women to submit about 1-2 minutes of video footage of themselves after the apocalypse. All you need to do is read the below background story and film yourself all disheveled and in a messy place telling your own personal story. (If you do not want to be disheveled, you should explain why everything in your area looks so normal – why you are unaffected by the apocalypse, etc.).

Node 666 (Background Story)

It began August 22nd, 2006. Escalating tensions in the Middle East resulted in Iran dropping a nuclear weapon unto Israel.

Into the valley of ARMAGEDDON!! !

This unearths a hidden portal to hell from which a demon army rises up to conquer the earth.

Seeing that the time has come, the alien overlords who have been watching over us as Angels initiate the Rapture protocol to save the human genetic code, randomly transporting a few million of us into their ships, to train for their final battle.

The rest of us are left behind, to face the final apocalypse. A world filled with roving biker gangs, zombie hordes, radiation fallout, and other fun things.

Many die. Some survive. And some …

Form a videoblogging network, to keep in touch during these grim times. They are the members of Node 666.

And so are you!!!

Tell us what happened to you during this apocalypse. Recreate an event during that day; show us your radioactive vegetable garden. Your mutant cat. Your pet zombie. Your freak children. Whatever.

You have a month. We will help with special effects and final editing between segment to segment. You can either send us your video at galacticast [at] or send us the link to your file online.

Please note that this work will be released under our usual CC license (attribution, non-commercial, share-alike) . If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Good luck and godspeed…

Video Shooting And Editing

I took a four day crash course on digital video and editing at Aron Ranen's DV Workshop in San Francisco. The class was great and he shot this testimonial from me and it's now on his web site. I highly recomend this class for those looking to vlogging or video shooting of any kind.

Interested in taking a workshop at Dvworkshops? Want to see the classes in action and hear real students talk about their experience?
