How Do I Say This Teaser from holycowboy on Vimeo.

This was my MFA thesis for the UCLA school of Film, Television and Digital Media – an “Online Video Advice Column” that like This American Life, focused on themes (such as “How to tell your friend he’s a bad actor” or “How to tell your parents that you’re gay”) and like PostSecret allowed the audience to participate anonymously in the creation and sending of the videos. It was funded by mtvU and Cisco, won the 2007 SXSW Interactive Award for Best Student Site, and was picked up by mtvU for a second season. Videos from HDIST played on mtvU, MTV2 and Logo.

The most viewed video from How Do I Say This was this Super8 “Video Valentine” a music video for iamb:
