This is an example of a video blog genre called the 5 x 5 Vignette. It consists in stringing together 5 shots that are 5 seconds long — hence the 5 x 5. With 5x5s, there’s usually some underlying theme that ties the five shots together — like a particularly day in the video blogger’s life.

What I like about this genre is it’s the video equivalent of what a weblog first started out as: an online diary of an individual’s life. Well, here’s my 5×5 weblog entry of a day out of my life from sometime last week when I used public transit to ride all over the city of Montreal. You can find more 5x5s from much more seasoned 5x5ers on the Vimeo FiveByFive Channel.
