Wow, all I can say again is WOW, what a weekend at the Youtube Creator Conference in Chicago with Brandon Ivey this weekend. This was a special event put on by Youtube for a small select group of up and coming channels to help their creators grow a lot bigger.
This conference blew away a lot of the other ones that I have gone to for just the amount of information that it provided about the inner workings of Youtube.

Vivid Aurora Borealis / Northern Lights filled the sky over Duluth, MN on the shores of Lake Superior this morning as the earth was hit by a G2 Geomagnetic Storm per the Space Weather Prediction Center.

Here is something new that we are starting up with StormChasingVideo.com Were starting up a new video blog talking about our videos and we discuss more of what happened in them. The first one is from last week's lightning video from Saint Cloud, MN and the "Phantom Bolt" that showed up.

Many year's ago, I was inspired by watching Stanley Kubricks work with tearing apart what was the status quo in cinematography and his use of insane idea's and camera mods to get the shot he wanted. The video below is a little sample of what I'm talking about.

Tonight was fun!!! A non severe high based thunderstorm moved through the Saint Cloud, MN area this evening with some ridiculously intense amount of lightning.

Trying to figure out a name for this style of lightning. It was very intense and shot in real time.

Woke up really early and could not sleep, looked at the radar and said, oh snap, game on. I missed the first line of storms because I was too lazy to get out of the house but I did get on the southern edge just before sunrise. Wow a thunderstorm with vivid lightning moved across area of Big Lake, Minnesota. While not severe, it did produced a lot of dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes.

I finally got around to working on the compilation edit of all the ridiculous Car Crashes and Winter Weather "Slip and Slide".
