S.Cushnie Presents I Am Shawn Cushnie #1

This blog post is my first vlog I ever made. I’ll talk about how I couldn’t edit anything and why I started vlogging in the first place. Also, I want to share how I continued working on my videos to get to this point that I’m at now. Link above!

Okay, so the main reason why I wanted to start vlogging is that I wanted to make a clothing line with my hip hop Facebook page. If you didn’t know I used to work at Purple Label and Black Label Ralph Lauren and American Eagle. I wanted to put together the materials of one with the selling style of another on the internet. I was watching a lot of YouTube, Timthoydelaghetto and Wiz Khalifa were the main two I was watching. They gave me the idea, mind you this was 2009 to whenever Wiz become somewhat famous with Kush & OJ.

At the time I didn’t really know how to film myself or even better edit a video. But I will start with editing, my laptop was horrible! My laptop wasn’t able to handle Adobe Premier and I didn’t understand why. I had so much learning to do, actually, since I’m typing this I’m happy with how far I came. I had no idea how much work went into the videos I was watching these guys do. I’ll say this, anyone can do it, you must put in the work!

Now, I want you to look back and see what I was going through. I was still going to college, I just wanted to give you the real. The whole reason for vlogging was to see you the progress of developing a fashion brand. But the vlogs just turned into everything about Shawn. Funny enough, the vlog was called Yung Lord’s Adventures!

As I was creating this video I realized that I wasn’t able to edit my vlog. I was lucky that I didn’t film that much.  This made me kind of like Adobe, but like I said Adobe Premier was my first editing software. Most people around me at that time didn’t understand. People didn’t believe in the idea of documenting your journey, not like now of days. Don’t stop working for what you want!


Hey, thank you for reading this far! All I want to say now is that you should watch how bad my first vlog was. Now, my vlogs are good, but that’s just me patting myself on the back.
