Barack Obama on Buzzfeed Video
President Obama has picked up almost 50 million views on his BuzzFeed Facebook video, “Things Everybody Does But Doesn’t Talk About”. Posted February 13, the two-minute film shows Obama getting ready to deliver a speech about health care, goofing around in front of his offie bathroom mirror, using a selfie stick in the White House library and playing air basketball in his office. The film was pitched to the White House by BuzzFeed News and BuzzFeed Motion Pictures in 2014. A small crew spent eight minutes filming the US President. Starring alongside Barack Obama is BuzzFeed video producer Andrew Ilnyckyj, who also operated one of the cameras on the shoot. Barack Obama wanted his younger audience to know the deadline for signing up for healthcare was February 15. Thanks Obama. You do you.
The Things Everybody Does But Doesn’t Talk About Barack Obama on Buzzfeed Video was developed and produced at BuzzFeed by executive producer Andrew Gauthier, producers Ella Mielniczenko, Andrew Ilnyckyj and Adam Bianchi, video curator Maycie Thornton, and production coordinator Cody D’Ambrosio.
