I find it remarkable. Many of you do not. I’m writing about the arrival of video reports on ByDanJohnson.com and how that addition has been received. In a phrase: You’re Lovin’ It! *** When Ultralight News YouTube channel first approached me in 2009 about doing videos I was hesitant. I may have been unsure but you spoke clearly and you know what? I like doing them as much as you like viewing them. I recently uploaded several more (we have 122 as of this writing, all free) and I have another 15 to upload plus Ultralight News has many more in process. *** No kidding, but I’ve had several people come up to me at airshows and say, “Oh, Hi! You’re Dan Johnson. I’ve watched all your videos.” I try to respond graciously with my thanks for their interest. And… wait a minute! What was that? “Which video did you watch and did it answer questions for you,” I ask? *** “I watched all of them,” the person will say. “Say again! You watched all of them? We have more than 100.” The answer: “Yes, I watched them all.” *** Knock me over with a feather. That’s quite a few hours of watching LSA videos. And, we keep adding more. I never expected video to become such a big part of my life or ByDanJohnson.com. You can read how I felt at the start. *** I don’t tell this story because I think our videos are a form of fine art, though it’s clear they have a large audience. I tell this story as a way to thank Ultralight News for their dedication to this form of communication. He and I have now shot over 150 videos but the history is far greater, posting 500-plus videos to YouTube. I know what I do as we create these short videos, but I watch the finished version with keen interest because they add so much more to them including flight scenes, factory footage, airshow footage, still shots, web addresses, personnel titles, and more. *** Videos appear here, on other websites, on YouTube (the world’s second most visited website), and now in a special all-video website called AircraftReporters.TV. This exposes LSA products and services to potentially millions of people. On YouTube alone, the “UltralightNews” channel has logged far more than three million views. *** We also write articles for print publications even as we publish online. So, when you see us approach an aircraft, it means we’ll be creating in three forms of media: Ink, Pixels, and Video. We love every minute of it. Hope it shows! Thanks for your viewership.
