YouTube NextUp Class of 2017 is OFFICIAL!



I've kept this surprise for way longer then anything else! Today, I am incredibly excited to finally announce that I will be a part of the YouTube NextUp Class of 2017! If you don't know what NextUp is basically this is where very few select creators (who YouTube believes are NextUp) get hand picked to be a part of a prestigious week-long program!  I am one of only 20 who were selected for this so I am beyond excited, humbled and hyped!  You guys made all of this possible and now it's time to take things to the next level!

If you want to see what I will be up to, make sure to read YouTube's Creator Blog announcement post!  Also, follow along on Twitter and Instagram to see all of the latest as it happens!  Look out for some epic videos coming soon to hit the YouTube channel as well!  Fun things happening my friends!

Until next time,

Ray

Nintendo #SwitchinItUp Collab!



Ever want to be a part of a video? Well, here is YOUR chance!


 Now that the Nintendo Switch has launched and a lot of people have their hands on it, I figured this would be the perfect time for a collaboration project!

Whether you have a Switch or not, I want to know where YOU are currently, or planning to, Switch It Up!  An example of a line you could say is "Hi, my name is Jim and I am Switching It Up in Albuquerque, New Mexico".  Obviously you would change it up to your name and location.  My only recommendation for this would be to turn your phone sideways so you record in widescreen.  Other than that, it is fair game!  It is super easy and takes less than 10 seconds.  I hope you are able to join in this exciting project that I am planning to launch in early to mid-April!

 Please send your videos to @raystrazdas on any social media site or via email to raymond.strazdas@stingrayfilms.com!

Until next time,

Nintendo Switch Hands On Preview Event



We are only a little over two weeks into the new year and 2017 shows no signs of slowing down!  Hot off of the heels of an incredible trip to Las Vegas for CES, Nintendo has invited me to get a glimpse of their latest console the Switch! Being a huge Nintendo fan, this was such an honor. The company is known to always try new things to push forward so new Nintendo consoles always exciting.


During my time at the event, I had the unique opportunity to go hands on with some of the most anticipated titles including Sonic Mania, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Surprisingly, during gameplay the Switch felt extremely solid and very well built despite it's thin and light profile. The new Joy Con controllers were very comfortable to use. If you are looking to see the Nintendo Switch in action...look no further then videos on my channel! I did my absolute best to capture anything and everything that I could. Enjoy photos and videos from the event right here in this post!

Until next time,

Nintendo Switch Event in New York City - January 2017
The BEST of CES 2017 | Cars, Drones & More!



The holidays have come and gone. However, we all know the real holiday comes for us techies after the actual holidays are over. By that I mean the Consumer Electronics Show, also known as CES.  This conference is where thousands of people from all over the world flock to Las Vegas to discover the latest in tech from the worlds largest brands.  This is my second year attending and I could not be more excited to be a part of the future!



Just a word of advice, if you plan on attending in the future - here's a pro tip - wear comfortable walking shoes!  You may not believe it but events like this are kind of physically demanding.  With exhibits spread throughout multiple convention centers across multiple destinations, getting to your destination can be a hike.  Keep that mind.  But in the mean time until CES 2018 kicks off, enjoy some videos I created from CES 2017 or check out the album of photos on my Flickr page! Stay tuned for a lot more on the way!

Until next time,

Ray
