Interview with Dakota Adney(@DakotaAdney)...
Today we have an interview with an internet sensation. Yesterday you saw my post on Dakota Adney, and today we have an interview with this video genius. I hope you enjoy!
Q. How/why/when did you get into making videos?
A. I was given a hand-me-down camcorder when I was about nine years old and began using it to make short videos with my cousins during the summer. I then became more interested in the technical side of things, upgraded my equipment, and started to learn “how the pros do it”.
Q. What type of camera do you use?
A. I use a Canon 60D DSLR with several different lenses.
Q. What computer/phone do you use and why?
A. I edit on an iMac and currently use an iPhone 4s. As you can see, I am an Apple fanatic. I hope to upgrade to one of those transparent iPhone 5’s soon. (;
Q. Why Apple as a focus for many of your videos?
A. I really love the simplicity of Apple’s advertisements. It amazes me how they capture the attention of millions with a simple hand holding a product. Working for Apple would be amazing! Not necessarily in the design department (I have absolutely no idea how to make a real transparent phone), but I would love to work with the advertisement team.
Q. What can we expect from you in the future?
A. If my schedule allows, I hope to continue dishing out videos for my viewers. I really love directing the Action genre, but people seem to be more interested in my faux Apple commercials. I have an ongoing list on my phone of ideas for videos I would love to make in the near future.
I really love Dakota's videos, he is super talented. Here is the desktop I designed for him. Buy it here.
