As a person who mostly stands behind the camera, I made some good friends who like to stand in front of it. In this position I had the chance to see how can everyman grow to the top of the Insta-tube-famous list in Israel, but more importantly - I saw how the real life looks like when the camera turn's off. 
I told myself that I have to tell this story without ignoring the vlogging camera point of view. 
So I decided to show both sided but switched between the story that my hero is telling and the story that is really happening.The consequence was that for the first time - the vlogging camera is showing the truth.
