I’m RJ, I’m a producer who’s been working within online video for over a decade now. A big part of my work has been focused on building and reaching new audiences for the films and videos I’ve helped produce. I’ve worked with a range of brands, events and independent filmmakers.
My online video experience includes roles at the Omnicom owned Rocket media planning agency prior to joining online video platform t5M. That start-up later evolved into the Tubular Labs ranked third-biggest digital media publisher Brave Bison.
I’ve also often used online video platforms to distribute feature trailers, behind-the-scenes clips and interviews to video sharing platforms to build audiences prior to releasing independent feature films.
Having helped produce, promote and syndicate videos via YouTube and other leading online video platforms for past clients I’m starting my own YouTube channels in 2020.
It often feels each time you upload a video that the best practice, community rules and promotional strategies have changed on each platform. It’s hard to keep up as it’s always evolving. This made me wish there was somewhere to keep up with all of it.
So I started vloglogic.com to try do just that.

Having recently read ‘Videocracy’ by Kevin Allocca (YouTube’s Head of Culture and Trends), I was struck by how online video is only just getting going in the scheme of things. Despite being a central part of most people’s viewing and daily lives already.
Online video has reached far more people within it’s short existence than other mass media revolutions did in the past such as printing press, celluloid film, radio broadcast and even TV. YouTube will be 15 years old in 2020 – young in the scheme of things.
Cisco predicts over 80% of internet traffic will be video by 2022. This coupled with the roll out of 5G is only going to make online video more ubiquitous and accessible to communicate with. It’s going to get even easier for everyone using video to share their voice with smartphones capable of shooting 4K video, more efficient editing software and channel optimization tools.
The biggest challenge will be finding your audience – the key to creating successful and sustainable online video channels.
