Mystery Story and Smartphone Video Travels with Michael and Melissa Harlow

Michael Harlow shared a story with me almost ten years ago and told me it was a secret. Imagine you stumble across an intriguing discovery that is filled with mystery. I know some people cannot keep a secret for a number of hours, but imagine keeping this big discovery a secret all these years. 

My guests on the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking episode 93 are Michael and Melissa Harlow. They share the art and tech of earning a living as a voice over professional. They also discuss how they created a travel vlog using smartphones to produce videos of their adventures. Imagine dropping your career and selling everything you own to spend your life traveling. One key to doing that is to live debt free and my guests will share how they were able to do that and how you can do it too. 

Michael shares the secret story with our listeners. It’s a story about a mysterious discovery that I find very intriguing. It’s exciting that Michael is sharing this story publicly for the first time with our listeners. It could be that one of you can help Michael in a documentary about his discovery. I won’t say more because you’ll need to listen to his story to find out why he kept it a secret so long and why I’m excited to share it with the world in this episode of our podcast. 

Some of the tips Melissa and Michael share include how to create your own travel vlog using smartphone cameras. I met Michael and Melissa in person, as San Diego natives, during the Inaugural International Mobile Film Festival in San Diego back in 2012 after listening to Michael’s secret story. 

If you want to live a life as an adventure vlogger, either for years or a few months, Melissa and Michael will share some great tips with you. It’s your life, and it’s your story.
