* Six years after the radio sitcom ''Radio/CabinPressure'' ended, creator John Finnemore (who also played the character Arthur) made a spin-off/sequel called ''Cabin Fever'', which is all about Arthur during the UsefulNotes/COVID19Pandemic, how he makes web videos and plays various silly games with his audience. The rest of the cast don't appear in person, but Arthur keeps in touch with them via Skype and social media and often relays messages or challenges from them to his audience.

A Vlog Series is a type of WebVideo or WebAnimation series presented as a video {{blog}} (vlog) by one or more fictional characters existing within the series. Some overlap with CharacterBlog, a type of FanWork, while others are non-derivative works featuring characters created for the vlogs.

The Vlog Series comes in two flavours: the more-or-less realistic variety, which is filmed using (or as if using) webcams and presented as entirely in-universe, [[ScrapbookStory as though it is really happening]]; and the traditional camera variety, which alternates between webcam-style and more conventional TV camera styles like mockumentary.

Some non-vlog works feature characters creating a vlog as a framing device or in select scenes, or include a vlog-style bonus or promotional video while otherwise being a different kind of work.

Despite the name, this is not to be confused with ongoing vlogs by real people, although some vlog series pretend to be non-fiction.



!!Examples




[[folder:In-Universe Camera]]
[[AC:{{Comics}}]]
* Creator/MarvelComics did one of these (in which a teenage girl suspected that her brother had been replaced by an alien) as a viral publicity for their CrisisCrossover ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''.

[[AC:Film]]
* The film adaptation of ''Film/TheMartian'' used this trope several times, presumably because having Mark Watney typing the journal he's keeping (as seems to be the case in the novel) with a voiceover would have been rather less interesting on-screen.

[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* Irish TV series ''Dan and Becs'' and its sequel series ''Sarah and Steve'' were both shot in the form of first person diaries, cutting between their different tellings of the same events. It's never quite made clear whether or not they post the diaries on-line.
* ''Series/BBVProbe'' released a minisode entitled ''Shadow of Doubts'' in 2020 presented as one of main character's Giles video logs.
