J: So what I do is I do, like, special effects videos, I do, like, music videos, I do, like, short, little skits.

L: Now you were on the main stage.

J: I was, yes.

L: About ten minutes ago. How was that?

J: It was fun, it was a lot of fun. I did an old song that I did with a friend of mine called SupRicky. I did a song called Looping around. I had a little special looping pedal that...

L: Yeah.

J: I've been focused on music and visuals for so long that I'm kind of ready to, you know, bring, like, stories that hit people's hearts in their faces.

L; That's the byline of your book.

J: Yeah.

L: Hitting hearts in people's faces. So this VidCon what are you, you know, how is it different from the last three? What are you looking forward to? What do you love about it?

J: I think there's a lot more industry stuff, you know. The first year it was just a little bit of industry and now it's, like, really, like a whole day just for industry stuff. So I think it's good for the business so we get to keep doing videos.
