The Exhausting World of Making a Caddicarus Video

YouTube videos can be really well produced, with a lot of shots and custom video footage and various tricks and things to make the entire product more thrilling to view. But what exactly does making one of these things actually entail? Well, YouTuber Caddicarus created The Exhausting World of Making a Caddicarus Video [1h2m] in which he uses all these great techniques to make a video about creating all these great techniques. I've spent enough time watching videos and wondering "could I do that?" that this was a really great all-in-one roll-up of what this one creator does for his videos.

Just three days before the raids, he was wearing black sequins and partying with Pitbull at the DC Solar holiday party, as if being Jeff “Mother Fuckin’ ” Carpoff for one more night trumped the grubby unknowns of a lifetime on the run. from The Billion-Dollar Ponzi Scheme That Hooked Warren Buffett and the U.S. Treasury [The Atlantic; ungated]
