Will Work For Views: The Lo-Fi Life Of Weird Paul
|Additional DVD options||Edition||Discs||
|New from||Used from|
Way ahead of his time - before YouTube, before Snapchat, before Facebook and even before the internet itself - Paul Petroskey started filming himself performing song parodies, music videos and unboxing videos, video blogging, sharing reviews, and telling jokes. Now, 30 years and 1,000 videos later, in the age of overnight YouTube sensations, Paul s overnight still has not come. Every day, Paul works for the views that fill his soul in hopes of also paying his bills, and struggles with the question that all artists must face: When (if ever) do you give up on your dreams? Will Work for Views showcases the wonderful, strange, fascinating world of Weird Paul as he works to fulfill his lifelong passion of earning a living creating art through music and video.

Makes more sense if you've been watching Paul's YouTube channel all this time. That's where I first came across Paul. He is the original video blogger. Why? Because he was doing it back in the 80s with a camcorder, similar to the one he now uses to record his YouTube videos (which adds a nice touch). But obviously due to the lack of no Internet then or YouTube, he couldn't show us all his creations :) now he can. They are a fascinating look back at the past and I'm sure a lot of us can relate to what he used to film.
This is a great look at the behind the camera. Sad to see he's struggling with the state of the house etc. He really should start up a patreon. You don't have to do anything extra with patreon, not everyone does as long as you're honest about it. Honest about not giving people extra with the patreon, we'd all be fine with it.
Nice to see his dad is still around as never see him on YouTube except for the old vids. Funny that his mum still gets involved with the new videos.
I think they missed a trick not getting interviews with his two sisters and brother but maybe there's a personal reason for that, we may never know.
This was really well put together. It really felt like it was Paul's film and not people doing a documentry on Paul.
This is a hidden gem.
