I am currently filming concepts for my re-branded Instagram account @AcrobaticLumberjack

Following the advice I got from Paul Wheaton about passive income, I have started to generate some video content that is hilarious (I hope), sexy (i'm told) and contains the bricks of a new society, great ideas from permaculture, put in to practice on camera with lots of manual labor filmed in the guise of a Fitness Craze called #logbody



I am looking for feedback on some of these clips and for people to point out what I am forgetting to consider, so that my feed isn't lame.

About me: My name is Nick Milan, I am 34 years old, I am an acrobatic performer and permaculture designer and enthusiast.

My day job usually looks like:

or

but I have mixed the gardens and acro in the past



I have recently become a father, and that has changed me considerably. I am committed to getting the word out about better ways to live in harmony with the world. I think this might be my niche for doing that. I am going to begin editing some videos together for my first #logbody video, but I was hoping i might post the clips here and get somefeed back on what lands and what doesn't. i will also be editing some photos and clips for the Insta that I would appreciate eyes on.

I want, for this project, to feel like a sketch comedy type of show ala W/ Bob&David or Mr. Show, with a lot of time lapse sequences similar to Survival Skills Primitive on youtube:

Here are a couple of test shots for the time lapse sequences:



I also love to cook and share delicious food, so I hope to include some cooking sequences:

I am sure you have learned much about how the human body works and how it complains when you use it in ways or beyond its limits.
In my second carrier as an Antalgic Posture Pain Specialist. I have found that most people have not learned to listen to there body. My presentation is: Pain is the body's message to the conscious mind that something needs to be done differently.  
So it you show an exaggerated version of the wrong way and then the ergonomic way that is good education.  If you need examples of what to do when pain tells you you did it the wrong way I really need to get some videos up in my empty channel about simple and effective ways of retraining muscle reflexes to relive pain and promote repair.

I think the dog in the time lapse is good. Adds a random element and apparently lots of people like dogs ;)
Are you vegetarian? That food looks mighty good. Would it be too much content for a single video to have some acrobatics, then gardening inc. harvesting, then preparing of food? Or simpler, acrobatics IN the garden, followed by showing food prepared earlier.

Maybe you know more people with good gardens you could do acrobatics in for variety of plants and scenes.

Thank you, so much, for your responses Elanor and Hans. I appreciate your thoughts!

I certainly have! In circus we lean in to pain but develop a keen awareness for the difference between painful and injurious. A partner of mine has studied functional patterns and they are Obsessed with perfecting form, I would love to include some information on that and ergonomic movement in general.

That's Carl Weathers, and you can be sure that you will see a lot more of him nd my adorable cat Napoleon Bonaparte. I agree that people love to see animals in content like this... I wonder why that is? Maybe because they are relatable. I enjoy seeing their behavior in timelapse, so busy and 'helpful.'

Are you vegetarian?


Not strictly, I eat mostly vegan and then add in very high quality meats and dairy products... Based mostly on how they are raised and their carbon footprint... I call it BeyondVegan, trying to sound more pretentious than even the vegans. So wild harvested is best, raised by me next, then locally produced pasture raised animal products, and lastly I do occasionally eat things that normally wouldn't qualify but that I save from a waste stream.

That sounds like a wonderful video to me, perhaps each component can be a snippet for social media and then I can upload a whole 'episode' to Vimeo or YouTube. That's really just an average day for me, so it's just about setting up the camera, living my life, then editing and uploading. Should be doable once a week. I do know lots of people with gardens and I tend to travel a good amount so I can even show different climates and cooking styles.


Thanks again for the suggestions!
I've planned out an acro, partner workout sequence that I hope to upload here soon. I'm more motivated now that people are talking to me! Yay.

Beyond Vegan, that's funny! Diet labeling can be a bit weird, I too am an "eat what i want which is mainly vegan, local, healthy foods"

Animals are cute, I think it is as basic as that! Just ask my miniature goats...

I definitely see in my head at least, picking high up fruit with partner acrobaticing (is that a word...it sounds like one...) I look forward to seeing more of your acro videos.
 
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
