It’s time for us to introduce to you the talented Gregork, winner of the AverMedia’s Share your Gameplay and Change your Life contest (making it the 3rd award under his belt!). His winning video, “The Legend of Peter Von Flight” is one of the funniest we’ve seen, and we’re extremely glad to have him Zooping for us!
Read on below to find out more about the man behind “The Legend of Peter Von Flight”!
Who are you?
I’m a filmmaker/musician based out of Philadelphia. I run on coffee and brown rice and midday power naps. I think I was supposed to be born in the 1940’s and I live to explore and create.
Tell us a little bit about your filming background-what got you started?
I spent my teens and early twenties in studios obsessively recording music. Falling in love with the learning curve. Then about a year and a half ago I stumbled behind a camera and realized all the similarities of the two crafts. The stories you could tell. The emotions you could pull. Music has always been a more serious passion so I made it a point to keep my videos on the lighter side and try to make people smile.
Your videos are pretty funny; what inspires you? Tell us a little bit about your creative process behind The Legend of Peter Von Flight
Leading up to the video, my roommates and I started playing Mario Kart 64 (the classic). I realized in those seconds after you win a close race, standing up in your best superman stance, fist in air, you become this ridiculous version of yourself. In that moment, you’re Peter Von Flight. After that, it was just about expanding those seconds into a whole life.
What are you hoping to achieve in the future?
I’m trying not to think too far ahead at the moment. Trying to keep it to three months or so. Right now, I’m working on scripting a web series and working on another album that I’d like to finish up by summer.
