What video / television piece inspired you recently?

The style of first-person documentary storytelling from the NYT. I loved this piece: Here’s what happened when I, Casey Neistat, tried to recover $13,000 worth of stuff I left in a New York City taxi.

What is most exciting for you at the moment within your industry?

The energy surrounding building high quality visual journalism.

What is one thing the Telly Awards community should know about you?

I’m running my third NYC marathon in November!

What is a piece of work you are most proud to have worked on?

I’m proud to have launched Mic’s opinion video unit. The team showcased voices/perspectives of people not often in front of the camera. Two examples are: Without good medical care, I wouldn’t be alive and These Muslim kids are standing up to islamophobia.
