YouTube Episode

This is one episode on a YouTube channel about a couple of "van-lifers" who settle in the mountains of Utah, and build a house. Lots of entertaining construction stuff because they have no construction experience and try to do as much as they can themselves. Lately, Allie is pregnant and they are racing to get a Certificate of Occupancy before the birth. They don't make it, and this episode is the story of the birth.

I think they could win some sort of award for the short documentary format with this episode. It really has everything, film-wise: Tension, resolution, perfect videography and editing, excellent sound, relatable characters, dramatic impact, AND it's a documentary! Which are often rather boring to watch.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
