I'm proud to present our first feature-length film here at PogieJoe....One Day: A Musical! Thanks to everybody to helped make it happen...and there are quite a few! And a huge shout-out to all those who have followed me over the past four years and will join me on the journey to my fifth. Enjoy. :)

When I heard that John Green and the cast of The Fault in Our Stars was taking their Demand Our Stars tour to nearby Cleveland on May 6th, I knew I had to attend, especially since it was free. I was not lucky enough to meet John again because, as you'll see in the video, there were literally an estimated three thousand people there and there's no way they were going to do anything one-on-one. However, it was still a tremendous time even with the hours of waiting I got to meet a lot of awesome people with similar interests in YouTube, great books, and not forgetting to be awesome as well as make a silly video while doing so! I even got recognized for my YouTube channel a couple times which is the first time that's ever happened to me!
UPDATE (5/26/2014): John Green liked the video on Tumblr!
This semester I took a Children's Literature course and it's been a wonderful class, as I have a great love of kids books. For one of our final assignments we had to somehow expand upon one of the books that we read in class. I chose the excellent Mo Willems picture book Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, turning the simple funny story into yet another instance of Hollywood completely missing the point. The original book was simply about a pigeon who wanted to drive a bus but wasn't allowed to. The video is about...well you'll see. I worked hard on it so here's hoping you like it! Or else!
This is not a drill! It is, in fact, a plea for help! There are mere hours left to donate to the PogieJoe musical, get cool prizes, and help a bunch of young filmmakers make something they might be proud of for years to come! Help us out!
Last year I stumbled across Nathan Talbott's channel due to his collaborations with Wheezywaiter to help promote Wheezy's app I'm Actin' Here. I've been a huge fan ever since then. I reached out to Nathan to see whether he would want to collaborate and we worked on this. He was great fun to work with and his footage was so funny that I would love to do a behind-the-scenes sometime showing his mumbles between lines. Enjoy!
And don't forget that you're running out of time to help us make the PogieJoe musical! http://igg.me/at/pogiejoe
