Thoughts on my video style

I released my video about Semi Onsen and Kamewari-Yama this morning. Of my last ten videos, this one is doing the best. This isn’t saying much, I only get about 100 views on the videos, but I really like the style I was working with for this video. Instead of showing the hike up and giving an explanation at the end, I spend most of the video commentating or giving a background story.

Semi Onsen and Kamewari-Yama both have interesting backstories which really helps, and a lot of the mountains around are similar, so I’d like to work with this style I think. The problem a lot of the time is finding source material. A lot of the stuff on these mountains is very old, and is sometimes only available in print. I guess that makes having a video like this do well feel all the more better.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
