With One Voice in Montreal: Art and Music Helping Homeless People.

With One Voice in Montreal: Art and Music Helping Homeless People.

– So, here we are day one and everybody has to draw a partner without looking at the paper. So, this is Matt. – Hi guys. – [Mark] And that’s what he drew of me. – I must apologize to Mark Horvath. – No, that’s how I look and normally feel on any given day. (upbeat music) (heart thumping music) Hey everybody, I’m here in Montreal. I’m here with a bunch of wonderful people working to bring art and music to the homeless community. The organization is called With One Voice. But there’s people here from individual organizations
all over the globe. This is the first event of its type. Its so amazing. I’m so grateful to be a part of this. How it all happened or how I got connected was years ago I was in London right before the Olympics and somebody I didn’t
even know at the time, Jenny Edwards, we’ve now become friends. She tweeted to me you’ve gotta
come see Streetwise Opera. I didn’t even know what
Streetwise Opera was. Never heard about ’em. Streetwise Opera is a group of homeless people singing opera and they were playing
the Royal Opera House. Which is a big deal and they’re opening up the Olympics. Homeless people opening up the Olympics at the Royal Opera House singing opera. (operatic singing) I am so glad I went. Met Jenny for the first time. Met Matt. He has this vision of
helping organizations that are bringing art and music to the homeless community build capacity. Networking together. He used the analogy this morning of one stick breaks, but you put a bunch of sticks together and its strong. So this is the first event of its kind. A first of many. I’m so honored to be a part of it. So, hey, come and join
us this week in Montreal. (light-hearted music) – Why did I come? To learn, to share, to collaborate, to co-create change, to grow. (upbeat music) – So cool. It’s a van that brings literature and art to homeless community. So, I’m walking on either side. I have a hard time of who to feature first because they are so amazing. Both of them even though they are
laughing at me right now and all the people walking by are laughing at us too. So, maybe this is an improv comedy more than a vlog. But this is Matt. – Hi there. – Matt is the person
behind With One Voice. But there’s more. This is Beth. Beth has actually gone out on the streets of Santa Monica with me to hand out socks. – I did. Venice Beach. – And she’s a politician. – Sorry. (laughing) – Now if we could only get the politicians in Los Angeles to do that. – You should ask them. – I have. – Oh, okay. (laughing) – [Mark] Um, tell me about With One Voice. – So With One Voice is a global arts and homelessness movement that aims to bring people together. To connect the hundreds of projects that are out there around the world that
are fragmented and alone and existing on a wing and a prayer. Bring them together to
strengthen each other. To help create more public awareness about the use of the arts and homelessness support and to maybe influence and tweak a little bit of policy around the use of the arts as a important structural way of ending homelessness. (light music) – [Instructor] One, two, three, image! (laughing) Freeze. Okay. All good. – I wanna tear my hear out. – Theater of Oppression
out of New York City is hosting a workshop on how to do legislative theater. So cool. Legislative theater is
to affect policy change. (group laughing) – [Camera Woman] Okay,
so do you want me to, I need to use my camera now. Can I give this back to you? Sorry. (woman laughing) – No, that’s all I needed. – Hi. – Hey, this is Beth. – Hi, I’m Beth. – She’s from Portland. – Yep. – She does awesomeness. – Ah, thank you. – Tell me about. – Check out p:ear. – P:ear. – P:ear is a program that works with young people
experiencing homelessness. The main goal is to build strong healthy relationships so that we can all affirm
our own personal worth and find ways to create more meaningful and
healthier lives for ourselves and our community. – And it’s awesome and you’re
gonna see a link below. Visit, support. – Www.pearmentor.org. Thank you. (laughing) (upbeat music) – [Mark] So exactly what you just. – So, its a rational arts experimentation. We purpose you to have a soup with someone you don’t know and we drop, aim and we say okay have a soup with this beautiful person and we have a menu of conversation where we can begin a conversation and after it’s completely free. You can travel together if you want. – Yeah. It’s a festival and it’s just started. Totally amazing. Been here all week with a group of people with With One Voice. Yeah, it’s a festival. It is a art, homelessness, I would call it an installation. You might call it an exhibition. I don’t speak French, so I don’t totally understand all of it. They did one presentation
and I was blown away. This art is to bring
awareness to homelessness and it’s gone all over the world. It’s truly amazing and they are going to be playing Invisible People videos, 25 of ’em on a loop throughout the festival. How’s that for cool? (cultural music) (low grunt) (short grunt) (high pitched grunt) (low snarl) (short grunt) (satisfied grunt) (instrumental strumming) – I have no idea what this is but, I have to make this into a vlog now so you can all see it. Somebody came over and informed us that there is a circus about to start so that’s what we’re waiting for. (energetic music) Hey everybody. (laughing) This is Kat. – Hi. – She’s from the Global? – The Institute of Global Homelessness. – And she has been part
of this wonderful event. And today you talked about? – Our vanguard cities work. – Can you explain that? – Yeah. So, we are working with about 10 cities across the world to set goals related to ending street homelessness by the end of the year 2020. And it’s gonna be great, and so we can kick off a global movement to extricate homelessness outright. (light music) – Ali. – [All] Ali. (bass-thumping music) – There’s all the other art. It’s about communication. It’s about people connecting, right? We just take the artificial
stuff out of the way. Get rid of the pain in the sculpture and get back to what’s
really happening there which is people in a space connecting with one another. (upbeat music) – Really amazing experience connecting with people through touch. Really gorgeous. I mean, at first I was very self-conscious about do I have boogers in my nose? Then my ADD kicked in
like come on hurry up. Lets move, lets move. And then I started being present. And I have to say it was really wonderful because many of the people
I’ve never met before but there’s several that
I do know and I stopped ’cause you’re holding hands and you get to look at the other person in the eye and truly marvelous. (energetic music) It’s been very eclectic. – It has. – It’s been, I mean, we had the circus last night and some guy makin’ noises and unique instruments
and this soup gathering. And then today and the holding of hands. It’s just been a marvelous experience. – Connections. – Connect. – It’s all about connections. – I like that. I didn’t think of that. – I know, so. – I was thinking relationships but that’s over-arching and it really is about connections. And that’s a good segue because Beth did this amazing report. I’ll link it down below. Of Homelessness North America? – Yep I mean not Homelessness in North America. – Arts and Homelessness. – Arts and Homelessness in North America. So what did you discover turning around? – Discovered that people were doing incredible things. But, they didn’t know that anybody else was doing those incredible things. So they were siloed like
the homelessness sector is in general. – Yeah. – And people were filling gaps that other people had fallen in between. So, whether it’s Path With Art, or working with the Seattle Symphony, or p:ear in Portland doing mountain biking and running the road there. Through gallery space or whether it’s Theater
of the Oppressed New York. Making policy changes with theater. They realized through doing the tour, we realized through doing the tour, they’d be 15 times more powerful if they can connect with 14 other people. That’s what this is about. – So why are you involved in this? – God knows. (laughing) – You saw the Theater of
the Oppressed workshop. Well, here is the main performance. – And we have actors today who are the With One Voice troupe. (audience clapping) And they’ve been rehearsing for a whole 45 minutes. (audience laughing) – [All] Three, two, one, action. (upbeat music) (audience clapping) – This is Jo. – Hi. – This is Heather, and we’re gonna get close for the camera and body heat. Yeah, I gotta tell you that every time I’ve wanted to complain about the coldness I think it’s perfect
because it’s a reminder that people are sleeping
outside in this weather. – Yeah. – I said that very thing this morning. – Yeah. – Did you? – I said I can’t complain. – Yeah. So, you might remember
these two lovely women from my vlog on the Dallas Library, which I’ll link below. You guys spoke today. You’re here in Montreal. Tell me what’s going on. – It’s a great gathering, inspiring, lots of different countries and cities coming to talk about arts and people experiencing homelessness. – So, Heather, what’d you get out of this? You guys spoke you told
a couple of stories. – You know, I think it just reiterates and reaffirms how important
not just taking care of the physical person but, taking care of the
intellectual, creative person. – Right. – Yeah. – The person inside, right. – Right. And you guys were talking about spaces and making them inclusive. – Right. – Basically. What’s the key points. I mean I know, but they might not know. (laughing) – The key is to treat everyone the same. It doesn’t matter. We’re all human beings. We’re all here on earth together and we all should be treated with kindness and respect. – Yep. Let’s run into the heater. Night two events and I don’t speak French so I totally don’t understand everything. But, really amazing. There’s a tent behind me where people can come and get clothes. And then over here there’s a tent where people are able to get a meal and connect to service providers. Throughout there’s
legislative theater workshop and performance arts gonna
be starting up again. The meal the share soup
with a complete stranger. It’s really one of the
most amazing things. This year I was able to experience the homeless world cup and now an art festival based on awareness and helping our homeless friends. Over here people getting massage. Homeless people getting
their feet massaged. You know how amazing that is? My heart breaks for
all the homeless people that are out here in the cold. I want to talk to ’em
but I don’t speak French. I’ve tried a few times
and it didn’t end well. – And so you see the whole movement in one glimpse because you see people at different stages of it. This is what we’re going to do now. (rhythmic music) – This is so awesome. It’s a trailer to go first nations and empower indigenous
people to make movies. Oh my gosh, wow. Hey everybody this is Carl. – Hey guys. – He’s from Chicago. – Yeah. – And he does a couple of things. Wanna tell ’em? – Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Sure. So, I work for All Chicago
in the city of Chicago which oversees some of
the federal spending on homeless programs
for the city of Chicago. I also work at Light Collective which is a youth program that focuses on arts and recreation for youth experiencing homelessness and poverty in the city of Chicago. – Why is art and music so important? – I think it’s massive. I think we spend a lot of time thinking about policies and about
all sorts of things. That are, while they’re important, I think it overshadows the need to help folks connect
with art and recreation and things that help them offer expression and working through trauma and all this different sorts of things that are difficult. And that when you’re in
the midst of a crisis you don’t have time to focus on sometimes. And so I think we miss that a lot in the work that we do. So, I think this has
been an intentional week of everyone thinking just about that and it’s been really impressive. ♪ My name is Matt ♪ ♪ I like to sing ♪ (laughter) ♪ His name is Matt ♪ ♪ He likes to sing ♪ ♪ My name is Seymour ♪ ♪ I like to eat ♪ (laughter) ♪ His name is Seymour ♪ ♪ He likes to eat ♪ ♪ He la la hi la ♪ (clap) ♪ Hi la hi la ♪ (laughter) (shaky growling) (high pitched squeal) (shaky growling) (high pitched squeal) – Hey everybody. This is Onalea. – Hi. – And we’re here in Montreal
for an amazing week. – Yeah, it’s been incredible. – Tell everybody what you do. – Okay. Well, I’m an independent creative artist. I work as a singer and an actor. I’ve been in the business about 20 years. I’m here at this conference talking about a project that I wrote called Requiem for a Lost Girl. About 10 years ago now, I was commissioned by a chamber ensemble, to write a piece about homelessness and my way into the subject
was a little tragic. When I was 15 years old a friend of mine, I found out by reading the news one day, on the front page of the paper that she had run away from home become homeless, become addicted, and that she was working in the sex trade and she was murdered. So, in creating this piece, I decided that I wanted
to partner with a shelter and create a choir, which I did. So I started working with the Calgary Drop-in Center, which is North America’s
largest homeless shelter. They service 1500 people nightly. And we co-created writing workshops and a singing group together. And worked towards a production. – Know why is art so important, not just as an awareness tool, but also to the homeless community itself? – Well, art as all of us here agree, as many of you out there I’m sure agree, is food for the soul. So, we know that it’s a basic human right. We’re not doing so well as a world on article 25 of the UN charter of human rights. That every single human being deserves food and shelter, medical attention. But we need food for our soul. In addition to having our
basic requirements met, we need something to make us laugh, something to make us think, something to help us
engage with each other, something to build communities, something to create color. A place to explore our stories, a place to create and co-create community with each other. – Oh yeah, sure, (laughter) ♪ Ah ♪ ♪ Ah ♪ ♪ Ah ♪ ♪ Ah ♪ (woman wretching) (class laughing) (class clapping) ♪ Together let’s sing once more ♪ ♪ We are together ♪ ♪ Let’s sing once more ♪ – Hey everybody. This is Billy. (man laughing) Does Red Line Services. – Service. – Red Line Service in Chicago and the opening day he was here but he wasn’t here, because he did one of these presentations. Twenty slides and he did the voiceover and he talked about, oh my gosh, this gallery exhibition where instead of, you wanna? – Sure, yeah. – Please tell us about it. – So, we (man crowing) we had a opportunity to do an exhibition at the gallery for three months and we worked in partnership with the gallery and we took the exhibition budget and used about 95 percent of it to rent an apartment for a year for two people experiencing homelessness. And then the exhibition itself was the lease to the apartment on the wall and a set of keys to the front door on the other wall and the back of the
gallery was a refrigerator where we invited people to go shopping and fill the fridge for the two people that were living in the apartment. And they moved in a couple days before Christmas and they’re there still and we’re still in touch with them and the work is on going. – To me that’s so amazing. You guys I’ve featured Skid Robot who does living art and that’s an example of living art. Tell me about Red Line Service and what else you’re doing in Chicago. – Yeah, so it’s just to say, I think we’re trying to build a project right around art and homelessness that doesn’t describe the problem but enacts the solution and the solution can be simple, right? And so it’s like, if you’re concerned about homelessness, find a way to house people and it’s a gesture, right? When two artists decide we’re gonna end homelessness then a couple of people get
an apartment for a year. Well, when everybody decides we’re gonna end homelessness, then we’re done with the problem for good. (people murmuring) – I’ve seen my stuff up there with all those issues. Yeah, they were the original designers. I actually really like
the little fuzzy bits on the top of your camera – Do you know what they’re called? – No. – Dead cats. (man laughing) Seriously. – That’s what they’re actually called? – Yeah. Yeah. – That’s right here? – Yeah. They’re wind muffs but we all call ’em dead cats. – Oh, yeah. – So, when you see it on a microphone, dead cats. And you guys learned something and now you’re gonna learn this is David. David rocks. He’s from the UK. This guy lived the experience. He does amazing art. – Well, I don’t know about that, but it’s all right, yeah. – Tell everybody. – So, yeah, I do a Man on Bench show. It’s named after the guy who saved my life on a park bench. It’s a immersive, fashion-come-extraordinaire
theater sort of thing and it’s all free. I do it on the streets. So people can enjoy it. It’s my way of protesting, but in a really nice friendly sort of way ’cause it’s pointless me standing on a soapbox gettin’ angry. Because if I do that no one listens. So, I thought, well let’s give ’em fashion and beauty and theater and by doing that people will stop, look, and stare and they want to get
involved and find out more and what it’s all about and they go wow, that’s fuckin’ amazing. What’s it about? Homelessness. – Yeah. – Addiction. Mental health. Suicide. Terminal illness. Subjects which no one wants to talk about but I do, because I actually care about those and no other fucker does. Well, some people do but most people don’t. They just want to brush
it under the carpet. Forget about it. And I aint gonna do that. I’m never gonna shut up. – Awesome. Thank you. – My pleasure, man. – Thank you for never shutting up. (upbeat music) Hey everybody this is Holly. Holly’s from Seattle. She runs an amazing organization. Tell us about it. – It’s called Path With Art and we’re an arts organization for people who typically don’t have access to the arts. We provide arts education, access to arts programming
around all of Seattle. We promote and put on
exhibits and showcases for student artists to show their work. We also do a program called
Community Connections where we bring all sorts
of people together. – Can you talk a little bit a why art is so important? – Well, art is important
I think for all of us because it is the one thing that distinguishes us, people are really, we’re mammals. Part of the animal kingdom. But it distinguishes us as human beings and it allows us to be human beings and find and share an inner voice. It inspires us to move forward towards a higher purpose. Whatever our higher purpose is and it also is really important I think, because it brings us
together as human beings so that we’re more than our circumstances. Art allows us to connect as human beings not through our circumstances. (energetic music) – Hey everybody this is Katy. – Hi. – The Theater of the Oppressed. New York City. – That’s exactly right. – Tell me about it. – Theatre of the Oppressed NYC puts on plays in partnership
with organizations and communities facing homelessness, coming out of the criminal justice system, or injustice in the immigration system, and we take these plays all over the city. Free public performances with forums where audience members, we call them spect actors, instead of spectators. – So awesome. – Yeah, they’re invited on stage to brainstorm solutions to the problems in real time in the play and improvise with the actors and we sometimes even spark policy changes in our shows. – Yeah. Did you do legislative theater? – Yeah. So here in Montreal we did a legislative
theater session yesterday where we were talking about policies to make sure that homeless artists with experience of homelessness are paid equally to all other artists in any kind of program and so we bring in policy makers, city councils, city agencies, along with the actors who have experience of these issues and concerned citizens,
advocates, lawyers, to come together and based on the plays and the audience’s ideas on stage to write policy proposals and then to narrow them down together and then to have a vote and then we get all those people activated to help follow through and push those legislators to carry forward their commitments that were voted on in the session. – You attended a theater and they made one on your story, correct? – Yes. I thought it was about poetry and I went in and found that they were playing games and doing activities and they were making a
play called Housing Circus and they allowed me to use my story in the act and I was a lion tamer who had issues of going back home. After having a baby and having to respect the rules of my mother even though I was a grown person and also the challenges of becoming a single parent with a child. No real support and stuff like that and it’s been since five years and I’m acting and joker training and also facilitating the same exact troupe
that I started out with. – That is awesome. (upbeat music) Could you tell me about
how Streetwise Opera came about with the news article? Such a great story. – So, in the late 90’s I had two jobs. One in opera as a journalist and the other as a support worker in a night shelter in London. Had two great jobs going on, really enjoyed both of them. The richness of that life and one night in the night shelter, one of the residents read a quote from a politician in the newspaper and the politician had said that homeless are the people you step over coming out of the opera house, and quite a lot of the
guys from the center thought that was offensive comment and some thought it was an opportunity. An opportunity that if they felt if they were in an opera, it would change public opinion. Instead of being looked down upon they’d be looked up to. So it was quite a kind of public awareness political exercise. Picked up the phone, got ahold of the Royal Opera House. To their credit, they gave us a few days in the theater and we put on an opera. And through that process
we built a community. We’ve built up people’s
belief in themselves and as the audience rose to their feet at the end of that show, one of the guys came up to me and said that is amazing. It’s the first time in 60 years anybody has ever congratulated me. It’s transforming. What’s next? And I said you did it. You proved we can do this together. There is no next. And that moment I
realized that in a sense, we’d failed that group of people and committed straight away to starting a charity that would carry this on and do it every single week and have a program in-built in homeless centers and around England that would work with people who had experience of
homelessness with the arts. – Yeah. (upbeat music) Tell us what you do and
why art is so important. – So, I work at a organization, a community arts
organization, called Sketch, and we believe that if you want to work with people, you need to have something
to gather around, and what is more amazing to gather around than fucking art and creativity? It gives you a chance to talk to people about what’s exciting and what their powers are and what their imagination holds, instead of all the shitty things that happen to them. Which we do talk about when it’s time. But, that’s not the reason we gather. We gather because we believe everybody’s got a greater spark and we bring enough sparks together, there’s a fire that can warm us all. – You did a session. Really kind of like design thinking is what I would call it, you know? – Mm-hmm. – Could you, I know we
don’t have a white board, but is there a way to briefly describe it? ‘Cause it was really amazing. – I’m a big believer in less is more and so the way I describe it is, our first responsibility is just to be. There’s no demands, just be. After that, we have to
figure out how to be you, and the arts is cool because you can start something but, then you get a desire to find out who am I as a musician or who am I as a painter. What’s my style? How do I dance? And so once you start doing that, you create something that
gives you a connection with other people and so the outcome is to be with. And really being with, gathered around creativity, builds strong community and actually that’s a serious intervention in homelessness. (singing in foreign language) – Hey everybody, weather turned for worst. I am going to make a mad dash back to central New York, weather permitting, and Marc who helped produce this event, who happened to be in a lobby, and that’s the one person
I didn’t interview. So, oh my gosh, there was singing and hugging to close. But, Marc, tell me what
happened this week. – Well many things happened
this week actually. We discuss about the role that our institutions play in integrating or excluding people, and of course, we talk about people
living in homelessness, or homeless situations, and being part of that exclusion. And I think we’ve got
some community workers, community organizations. We’ve got some cultural institutions who got together for the first time and discovered that, actually, the discourse was not unified and that actually, I think, they discovered some new ways to collaborate together, to open their gates and to maybe bring more
people around the table to see, well, how can we work better together and how could we make our culture in arts a bit more inclusive and how could actually bring people into the process as well. – Yeah. – And into the offer. So, not only asking for more culture, but asking for more ways to create that culture as well and that big heritage, that human heritage I would say. – I knew there was a reason why Marc was in the lobby. Because what he said, because I could never sell it, said anything that eloquent. So, thank you Marc for closing us out. If you enjoy this video, click like, share. Please subscribe. If you want to support, there’s a link to patreon and see you next time. – See you next time. (light music)

  1. Hey bro how can I reach out with my story I've been homeless since 15 have traveled most of Canada been in shelters across Canada but Im trying to empower people with my story and show them we can be resilient, I planned on coming out there but wasnt sure if it would be a good place to be homeless for resources

  2. Thank you, for covering this important event for us all.
    Great Vlog & message. God Bless you all.
    Sending positive vibes your way.
    From Vancouver Canada
    Most Sincerely, Crystal Elk.πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  3. Mark-I’m a newer subscriber and this has really opened my eyes. I am 65 from Iowa and have a spinal disease, so I don’t have but what I get from Social Security. I know if I was in a big city, it would be very hard to make it. I was blessed to get a nice one bedroom apartment 5 years ago. I had lived in an apartment that was not taken care of by the owner. And rent was 499.00. I was on a 4 year waiting list to get here. I don’t take anything for granted since watching you. I think here in Iowa there wouldn’t be homeless, but have been told I’m completely wrong. It’s getting cold now, & can’t imagine anyone sleeping outside. No longer will I complain when I keep my thermostat down to save money, and say I’m cold. If I do β€œshame on me!” God bless you Mark.

  4. All these people Are storing up treasures in heaven peace be with you😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  5. Helping out the ones who are down, is beautiful work…

    Thank you my friends…


  6. I don't expect to live longer than you and I'm half your age. My message to you is keep doing your videos and do great things. I love you brother

  7. That is awesome you doing a great job invisible people not to mention being a single guy myself is a lot a lot of nice single good looking women out there why helping the poor love to meet up with that one of those women

  8. we need more of you. they are closing down shelters. there are less and less low income rentals. There are more and more people living in their cars. And I. see less and less of the homeless on the streets. Mainly because of cameras everywhere. You can't stop. You can't rest. If you do and come back a few days later and you can see plywood newly placed over a vacant building. or huge concrete barricades blocking where you were just sitting a few days earlier. Once a person considered his or her fence line as property limit. not now. It's the camera radius. If a homeless person sit for a couple minutes on the steps of a church a half a block away, someone with a camera view feel its now their right to shout at you half a block away to move on. just because you are on their camera. Thank you for being a voice of compassion in this desert of homelessness.

  9. I currently live in my van in northern California. I am one of the nicest people around. I do not drink liquor, nor do i do drugs. Just a few minutes ago at a campground i had a woman walk up to me, and ask me to move to the other side of the parking lot because she felt uncomfortable with me here. I am parked by myself, and they parked two car spaces away with an entire parking lot to choose from. I guess they didn't read the back of my van. It says in big writing. " If one chance we get to live this amazing life, why live with anger, hatred, and strife? It is so sad that people have to judge without even taking the chance to talk.

  10. One thing i have noticed within our society is that the same thing that a person does who has an anger issue, or chemical dependency is happening to the low income, or homeless people. Rather then society dealing with its issues, it has decided to retaliate like a drunkard, by pushing its problems onto the low income. It seems that society is picking on the homeless, and rather then accept that it has major issues it has began to make a big deal about it. I feel society needs a physiatrist.

  11. I hope to have a chance to get out to one of your lectures and meet you in person, the next time you visit Montreal, Quebec. Born and raised here. I can help you translate, if needs be. 🍁

  12. Something I thought would be so helpful, an app that matches people sleeping rough with others who are in the same position that match close to their personality. Like a roommate finder but for rough sleepers, who could pool their resources together and get inside.

  13. The heart of God is Marcy and the glory of God is to create these people or creating hope for their brother that’s the glory of God peace be with you

  14. These people character has been questioned and the enemies come in and stole there hope just like he tries to steal mine and yours he wages war against God’s offspring’s so what does that Tele us

  15. a challenge to the world and I’m talking to you every living being see if you can make it through the day without one negative thought against your brother or saying anything or thinking anything negative about your brother I Ronny Carney challenge the world good luck peace be with you and may the spirit of the living God help you.

  16. A lot of great ideas and it was interesting! BTW… you don't have to be in the video for it to be a VLOG, and it might make people less uncomfortable if you're not trying to squeeze in the frame with your subject. If you just film the same as you would in an interview of a homeless person, it will be less awkward and your audience will be just as informed. Plus, then my head won't spin from the camera being turned back and forth all the time. LOL πŸ˜‰
