Friendship 2.0

Hey everyone!
I was just watching some of Sabrina's (NerdyAndQuirky's) old videos and stumbled across a video from three years ago in which, upon other things, she talked about the idea that two people who do not know each other could start a YouTube channel Brotherhood 2.0 style, where they regularly upload videos and only communicate through those videos and build a friendship and after one year, they meet each other in person. She called the whole thing Friendship 2.0. Some people tried that and started, I'm not sure if anyone actually finished it, though. Anyway, I would be interested in trying that, does anyone want to be my vlogging partner?
It might be good if we were kind of close to each other age-wise, I'm 19. Also, If we really want to meet after one year, it might be convenient to not live half across the world from each other, so, since I'm German, it might be good if my vlogging partner was from Europe.

Of course you can also comment in here if you are interested in the idea but search for someone else to do it with or whatever, just feel free to use the comments for anything related to this. :)

    Damn, I would love to participate, but I am bit camera shy (I do film myself dancing and juggling when I have to and haven't tried talking to a camera), also I do not own a camera except the one on my phone. BUT I do fit your criteria, I am 18 yo and from Europe (Lithuania). (I secretly want you to convince me to do it because it is a great way to widen horizon and meet new people!)

    Talking to a camera would be new for me too and it can probably get a bit awkward, but everyone who does it started at some point. Hank's and John's vlogs from the beginning of 2007 look a lot different from their current ones, too, but the thing is that there will probably not be many people watching anyway, so when you upload a video, and you are nervous about putting it out there for everyone to watch, you could still think to yourself "who's gonna see it anyway?" I can actually be pretty camera shy too, but I feel like this might be a good way to get out of my comfort zone a bit. You could also start by making videos without you in them first, maybe a bit "thoughts from places" style.
    I think using your phone camera will be fine, I mean the point of the project wouldn't be the HD graphics anyway, and lots of phone cameras nowadays are pretty decent.

    This sounds kind of amazing. However, you were probably just thinking about doing it between the two of you. Also, I'm in the U.S. Though, I will be studying abroad next spring, so I'll be in England. Maybe I'm too old because I'll be 21 this year... I don't know. I just think it would be cool to build friendships around the world. I'll definitely watch!

    I actually turned 20 in february and I would have never had a problem with a few years more or less, anyway. I just thought I might have less in common with a 40-year-old than with someone who is about the same age as me.
    I mean, the original idea was to do it just between two people, but I think three would also work...

    Also, generally, if we were to do it actually Brotherhood 2.0 style, we'd need to make a video every day of the week (without weekends), so with two people everyone would make 2-3 videos a week, and I think that might just generally be a bit much. I think I'll be able to do one video a week, maybe two, but more might be unrealistic.

    I would love to do this, but I live in Australia :(
    If there are any Australians wanting to do this, please comment!!

    I mean, it could be, like, Friendship 5.0. If there were 5 of us willing to do this, we could each take a day of the week (less stress for everyone). Or, we could include Saturdays, and the three of us could each do two days (fairness). We can invent the rules. :smile:

    AnFa and RMNT, would you be willing to do this?

    rachel_none, if we do this, and if you want in, would you be able to meet somewhere in Europe next year?

    @RMNT are you still aware of this thread? :)
