Meet the man who made vlogging what it is today
Closer Productions has announced the special event screenings of Sam Klemke's Time Machine, a documentary on the life of the world's first "vlogger", Sam Klemke.

The documentary will be shown October 25 at the Nova Carlton, and October 27-28 at ACMI.

Sam Klemke started documenting his entire life on film back in 1977, and would continue to do so for the next 50 years, back before status updates and the selfie phenomenon were so widely common.

The same year that Sam begun his "personal status reports", NASA launched the Voyager craft into space carrying the Golden Record, a portrait of humanity that would try to explain to extra terrestrials who we are.

Sam Klemke's Time Machine features clips from NASA's own archives brilliantly contrasted with Klemke's countless hours of home video to have a good look at time, mortality and what it means to be human, as these two unique self-portraits travel in parallel - one making its way through space, and the other planted firmly on Earth.

There would be many a young person today who would be incredulous to think that vlogging had it's foundation before they were even born.
