A year ago Reddit frontpaged a video I directed called Sexy Saxman. Since then, it's been a wild ride leading up to RollingStone featuring my latest music video! I am Mike Diva, AMA!
So here's an update for you guys!
A year ago when a video I directed, Sexy Saxman, was upvoted to the number-one spot on Reddit for a day, I was exhilarated! I had never thought millions of people would be into something I created. The next morning I figured it'd be business as usual, but thanks to all the love and attention my YouTube channel got, so many doors opened up for me. I was finally able to focus on my passion, which is directing music videos for my favorite artists, creating shorts, my own music, and eventually make a living off my YouTube channel.
I got a chance to collaborate on another video that got frontpaged, DubStep Guns, with my friends Corridor Digital.
My latest music video is for one of my favorite artists, Kill The Noise, on Skrillex's label, OWSLA. It took me four months to finish and holy shit, RollingStone reviewed the clip saying:
Diva's vision is a dystopian, zombie-filled future Los Angeles where gore and neon splatter the screen and a band of warriors embark on a video game-esque quest to kill the big bad guy – each of their blows in sync with the bass line.
As you can see I've been busy! I'm currently working on collaborations with Epic Meal Time, Smosh, and more!
This is truly a dream come true and I feel like Reddit was a major part in making it all happen, so here I am! Ask me anything!
EDIT: dunno why i didnt mention this before but my video IM ON CRACK got featured on the front page as well.
EDIT2: Fuck yes front page! I'm extremely honored!! I love you Reddit, thank you!!!
