Daryl Hannah's Love Life- Vegan Junkfood
My vlog watching experience came from the vloggers: Daryl Hannah's Love Life found through the link for Vidlicious on the Course Blog. This particular vlog site caught my interest because of the title! Once at their site, there were many episodes to choose from. Immediately, "Vegan Junkfood" piqued my interest. (I'm vegetarian, so anything vegan/vegetarian always catches my eye). I also liked how every episode on Daryl Hannah's Love Life showed some enviornmentally friendly act.
The vlog itself is very entertaining. There's always music incorporated into the shots that fit really well and makes the video entertaining and exciting to watch. The opening shots are all single shots set to music of different objects surrounding this vegan restaurant/house. Without having seen the video before, the shots seem kindof confusing, but in a good way, because it makes the viewer curious as to what the images are all leading up to. Finally, the owner's speak about the mission of M.A.R.S. (the house they live in) and what they are all about.
***Something interesting to note, is that the guy shown in this vlog used to be Mark, the youngest son, on "Home Improvement."***
After the intro, you are invited into the house to see all the delicious vegan cuisine being made. The feeling during this particular part of the vlog is very personal and intimate. If makes you feel as if you're among friends, hanging out, having a good time at someone's house. There's always a fun, inviting atmosphere and the video really captures the essence of that, either through music, conversation, or people. It makes the viewer wish that they were there. Even though the vlog is fun, modern and upbeat, it still tells a story about M.A.R.S. and their important vegan mission. Ultimately, the vlogger made the vlog appealing in hopes to inform and possibly sway viewers to consider a vegan lifestyle.
