10 Elements of a Casey Neistat Video

If you’re going to be a Casey Clone, you need more than a Boosted Board and a pair of RayBans. In this video, I outline ten stylistic elements of a Casey Neistat video. Drone optional.

  • Dramatic time lapse sequences edited to music
  • Music that’s a mixture of hipster electronica and remixed oldies
  • Handwritten text for narrative
  • Explaining your schedule direct to camera
  • Always be really late to important meetings
  • Always film the goodbye handshake at the end of meetings
  • Film yourself cutting through traffic on your skateboard or bike
  • Open your packages like an enraged orangutan
  • Whenever dealing with service people like airport security or coffee shop employees leave the camera on
  • Make your title as clickbait as possible
