I found the link here from teachingus and watched the whole week in one swoop. Intense, enjoyable without being fun, and I love this final video. The commentary is fabulous. I like the parts where I was “right” about what you were doing. I love the cryptic. Well done.

im sorry this week is over. I really liked how we pushed you..and you pushed back. This whole project was a crazy cryptic process. I’m so amazed everyone came together to make it happen. Big up to the Filters.

Anyway, i really liked this last video. Tied it all together. Next time, we send you to seven different countries.

thanks for the ride, Daniel.

making daily videos is difficult. making them to spec is really difficult. being critiqued as you go is torturous.

this project was an amazing accomplishment and this video is a great summation of the process.

Please add “psychic” to the your long list of talents. That seventh map was exactly what I wanted.


Congratulations are in order. You took a wildly ambitious task frought with setbacks and you ran with it. Seven days, seven videos, sevenmaps. I give it Seven stars!

Now get yourself home and hug Mookie.

Your creative psyche shouldn’t need to come in for another year or so…unless you start to sense something seems oddly normal again.

Thanks for taking the risks!

Great job Daniel. I enjoyed every minute.

I really enjoyed the story about the women on the train. It is amazing how online video has such a tendency to connect lives in unforseen ways.

You definitely deserve a rest.

Wonderful! Thank you so much for participating in this Daniel. Thanks to the ‘filters’ for doing a fantastic job as well, their story is an interesting one too. Thanks to all the people who contributed ideas (and the funds!).

I know the french video was a lot of work…

Yes, this did explain a lot, thank you!

Looking forward to more of your videos.

The seven maps is complete, and the seventh map summed it all up in a great way. “I thought flying home might be funny” – hah! Glad you stayed, explored the maps, ways to work with the audience, even if we were not too responsive, inventive.

Seven maps is to me a milestone in the vlogosphere. It may not be unique in the larger scene, I guess thousands have done something like this already, but it is definitely new to me. It brings up new questions, including questions about the role of the audience, being the audience. In essence, videoblogging is about a connection between the producer of the media, and the viewer. A link. How do we work with these connections? That’s for us all to explore, with time.

Congratulations on a project well done. Have a good rest. And – thank you.

The story of the lipstick woman is amazing. We can record our worlds we can take it all in with our cameras but if we don’t interact in real life there is really no source of input for our stories. Thank you for interacting as you did. Thank you for sharing this as you did.
I kinda wished I would have scene your feet as you walked up your steps that would have been a great videoblogger shot just for laughs but regardless I was more than pleased and blessed to watch the fruits of your Seven Maps Project this week. I wonder now how it will effect your work to come. Will you remember? Will you continue to challenge yourself and allow yourself to be challenged? I hope and imagine you will and maybe others including myself will too.

Great work, I really enjoyed them all for different reasons, an early comfort zone broke down into new territory. As far as rules for creating and stimulating exciting content have you seen “Five Obstructions” by Lars von Trier and Jørgen Leth
also know as “Fem benspænd, De” (2003) (link – … your project reminded me of those experiments and I have often thought that unrelenting freedom is a creative vacuum that needs obstructions to create anything. I look forward to your work in the future.
All the best

I just watched all the assignments from start to finish. I must say that I wish I had been apart of it. Regardless though it is a very inspirational collection, and a project idea that I think will turn the heads of a lot of bloggers out there. I’m actually starting a project of my own, I hope you will agree to be a part of it.
Thank you.

i just watched this again.
i re-read raymond’s comment up there
and it gave me a flash in my brain.
videoblogging is about a link between creator and viewer. so true. it’s this individual and intimate link. you make work for me, i make work for you. and it can be multiple, but it’s so minute sometimes.
just a thought.
love this video.

thanks for your work and creativity on this project. I’m sorry I missed it live but work was so crazy – such long days and lack of sleep so I had no energy to follow anything else at the time. this video was great – it tied up each day really well. the making of stories are always interesting too. I can’t believe you made up the story then found the tower!! that’s cool. I thought you must have seen the tower and the flower stall nearby and the guide in old fashioned costume and thought of the story then. I’m sorry you thought the comments on the wiki were negative. thanks again for your great work. I hope you can do another project like this soon. until then I’ll watch the pouringdown site for more. maybe the next one, you think of the tasks/topic and have everyone else make a video for you! once again, great work!!
