Vlog Series

Go To

A trend in Web Original series. The series is presented as a video blog (vlog) by a fictional character existing within the series, or as the vlogs of several characters. A subtrope of Character Blog.

The Vlog Series comes in two flavours: the more-or-less realistic variety, which is filmed using webcams and presented as entirely in-universe, as though it is really happening; and the traditional camera variety, which alternates between webcams and more conventional TV camera styles.

  • The film adaptation of The Martian 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.

Live-Action TV

  • 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.
