You guys know I’ve been having fun making little videos of my adventures and posting them over on Vimeo. Well, Africa was such a big, varying trip that I felt it warranted TWO videos – one about our time on safari and one about the work we did with Children’s Cup – and I’m so excited to share them with you here.

I make my videos using a fairly new iPhone app called Cameo, which is actually run by Vimeo. I took some basic videography courses in college as part of my journalism degree, and all of my videos at the time were absolute garbage. I just couldn’t manage the heavy equipment, the sound, the lighting – and then all of the work that goes into uploading shots to a computer followed by tedious editing.
Cameo makes everything SO easy because I can do everything – from shooting to editing to uploading – right on my phone. These videos here are WAY better than anything I ever produced in college! And last week I had the honor of visiting the Vimeo offices here in New York City and chatting with some of the Cameo team, so I can now officially say that this company is as cool as they seem, and the people are fantastic. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to explore video-making, because I never thought it was something I could handle!
I swear they didn’t pay me to say any of this. I’m just a huge, huge fan of the company and their product! Thanks for helping me document my trip, Vimeo!
