ThatACola vlog has been retooled and re-released as The Signal here in the first episode. I've been wanting to talk about these things and I finally get the chance. I need to bring my YouTube audience into the fold. Let's make films together!

Just so we're clear, Casey Neistat is one of my YouTube heroes and I was just having a lot of fun by removing words to insinuate something unseemly. In reality, he's one of the reasons I keep at it. Thanks, Casey!

FROM THE CREATOR'S WEBSITE:
http://www.richardgaleoptics.uk

Lo-Fi photographic and cinematographic lenses which impart a rustic aesthetic onto motion and still imagery. Each lens is crafted here in the UK using historic optical components from times gone by.

Over the years our lenses have found special places inside the gear boxes of some of the most creative and inspiring shooters. The ability of these humble optics in adding an element of the 'physical' into a medium dominated by lifeless and technically perfect digital capture, post production and delivery means DSO is often the first port of call when an expression of reality and physicality are of artistic importance.

Forced to confront their failures and an uncertain future, two best friends set out to fulfill the challenge of traveling across Nepal on $1 a day for 7 days. One for a last shot at fame and glory and the other to discover a new direction in life or accept the one he's on.

In this episode, Daniel and Brett bring us back to the beginning of their life changing journey.

Distant Signal wants to thank patron Ken Stewart for his continued support of DS through Patreon. Ken also makes films! Check his WWII documentary out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbbAr0StMgM
