Working on The Tommy Edison Experience on YouTube each week, I shoot plenty of extra material and come up with ideas that don’t always fit the channel, but now we’ll be making some of that content available by uploading it to my YouTube channel (http://youtube.com/RadioTripPictures)!
The goal is to post a new video every week that features bonus footage, out-takes, behind-the-scenes clips, and whatever else we come up. Plus, there’s footage from the past 5+ years that we filmed but never released… some of that may become available too!
Below are the first couple of TommyEdisonXP bonus videos I posted this month.
“Telling Tommy Edison What YouTubers Actually Look Like”
Description: In a recent video on The Tommy Edison Experience, Tommy, who’s been blind since birth, tried to describe what he thinks several famous YouTubers look like. After we posted the video, many people commented that they wanted to see a video in which Tommy finds out what the people actually look like and if he was accurate with his descriptions. Originally, when we shot that video, we recorded a segment in which I revealed to Tommy what those YouTubers look like but didn’t include it in the final cut. Here it is.

“This Is Why We Don’t Vlog Daily on TommyEdisonXP”
Description: Tommy Edison was featured in a recent episode of YouTubers React. This is a little vlog showing what happened on the day we went to The Fine Bros production office to film the show.

More “Differences Between Being Blind & Legally Blind”
Description: A few months ago, we posted a video on The Tommy Edison Experience called “What Are The Differences Between Being Blind & Legally Blind?” It was a collaboration featuring legally blind YouTuber and filmmaker James Rath. In the video, I presented a handful of everyday scenarios and asked both Tommy and James to respond. The video has been viewed over 1 million times, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to share some of the extras from the shoot. Tommy and James talk about how they experience fireworks as someone who is visually impaired, if they are able to write print, how they take a photo using their iPhone, and whether or not they can assemble Ikea furniture alone.
Watch the original video: What Are The Differences Between Being Blind & Legally Blind?
Description: Tommy Edison, who’s been blind since birth, teams up with legally blind YouTuber James Rath (https://youtube.com/jamesrath/) to show the differences between being blind like Tommy and legally blind like James. Tommy’s blindness is caused by an underdeveloped optic nerve and James’ blindness is caused by albinism and nystagmus.
