First Viral Video

So yesterday night I received an email from youtube asking me to share revenue on the last video I posted up which was Gas Guzzlers Part 2. After researching all of what that meant I found out that while I may not be partnered with them, I still will be able to get money from this video. I feel as though I have completely broke the rules when it comes to viral video though, because most of the time you see a quick little five second thing of someone getting hurt, but this is a fifteen minute monster, that somehow sky rocketed in views so much that it grabbed the attention of youtube. I have to say this is amazing news and I have no one to thank than all of you guys who follow my work and make it what it is!

Thanks so much guys!

German Shepherd Eats Snow

My German Shepherd Lexi eating snow on the first winter happening here in Maryland. As you can tell in the video she really enjoys the snow.

Lunar Eclipse

A video of the Lunar Eclipse from earlier in the week. Nothing really crazy, just wanted to see one. It is very beautiful, so much so that even this camera really can't do it justice.

So a little over a week after the big premiere of Gas Guzzlers at Towson University, I am now posting up Part One of the film on youtube. I am posting each part in 15 minute intervals, which will break the film down into three parts. Every saturday either at midnight or around midnight I will be putting it up.

Enjoy Part One!

Thanks Everyone!


I would like to personally thank everyone for coming out the Gas Guzzlers premiere last night. The night turned out to be really fun and amazing. I was so happy to see all the work come together on that giant HD screen. Special thanks goes out to my entire family, my friends, Ashley, Joe, Jordan, Hector, Zach, Chad, Dr. Faller, and the entire EMF department at Towson University.

In addition to that tonight I have a new short film for everyone to see entitled break down which also premiered alongside Gas Guzzlers last night. Check it out in the link below.

Premiere Night

Tonight is the big premiere of Gas Guzzlers. After three months of filming and two months of editing I have my event! It is being held at Towson University in Van Bokkelen Hall room 204 from 7 to 9pm. Before Gas Guzzlers I will be showing a collection of short films and documentaries I have done all with my newest HD camcorder. Short films include Breakdown and a collection of my favorite True Docs episodes from this summer. That will be going on from about 7 to 8. At a little after 8 that is when I will be showing Gas Guzzlers!

It has been a journey to say the least getting to this point. Through a rough semester and a few surprise hurdles. I will not dwell on those obstacles now because I have overcome all of my obstacles and now I get to see my film and short films on a giant theater sized screen. It is something that many student filmmakers do not get to see, so I will enjoy it!

Everyone wish me luck for a smooth night and I hope to see you all there,
Dan H.
