About Casey Neistat

Casey Owen Neistat (born March 25, 1981) is an American YouTube personality, filmmaker, vlogger and co-founder of the multimedia company Beme, which was later acquired by CNN.

In 2018, he founded 368, a creative space for creators to collaborate and influence each other.

Early life and education

Neistat was born in Gales Ferry, Connecticut. He was brought up in Reform Judaism. He dropped out of high school during his sophomore year at the age of 17. He eventually left his family and had a son named Owen, at age 17, with his then-girlfriend Robin Harris, in 1998. Between the age of 17 and 20 (from 1998 to 2001), he lived in a trailer park with Harris and Owen. It was during this time that Neistat decided to move to New York City.

Before moving to New York City, Neistat worked as a dishwasher at a seafood restaurant and was a short-order cook in Mystic, Connecticut.

Early filmmaking career

In 2001, Neistat and his brother Van began working with artist Tom Sachs, ultimately making a series of films about the artist's sculptures and installations.

Neistat first gained international exposure in 2003 for a three-minute film titled iPod's Dirty Secret, criticizing Apple for not having a battery replacement program for their iPod line of portable media players. The film received national media attention and brought broad attention to the company's policy towards iPod battery replacements. The film was posted to the Internet on September 20, 2003, and quickly attracted media attention. The film was praised as "wonderfully renegade" by The Washington Post.

Apple announced a battery replacement policy on November 14, 2003, and also announced an extended iPod warranty program on November 21. Fox News set the date of the policy change at "two weeks" after the posting of the clip and Neil Cavuto called it a "David and Goliath story" on Fox News's Your World. Apple spokeswoman Natalie Sequeira denied any connection between the film and the new policy, stating the policy revision had been in the works for months before the film was released.

In 2004, Neistat and his brother produced a film series titled Science Experiments. The 15-minute series featured a number of short films documenting various experiments. The series was included in the 26th São Paulo Biennial in São Paulo, Brazil. The work was popular, and was eventually featured in Creative Time's 59th Minute program showing a one-minute excerpt from Neistat's film every 59 minutes on the Panasonic Times Square Astrovision.

In July 2008, HBO purchased an eight-episode television series, The Neistat Brothers, for just under $2 million. The series was produced by Casey and Van Neistat, and Tom Scott. Independent film producer Christine Vachon served as consulting producer. Written and directed by Casey and Van, the show is autobiographical and told in the first person. Each of the eight episodes is made up of short stories about the brothers' lives. The show premiered June 4, 2010, on HBO.

The Hollywood Reporter likened the brothers' charm, wit, and simplicity to that of Dr. Seuss. Hank Stuever of the Washington Post praised the brothers' joie de vivre.

Personal life

In 2005, Neistat eloped with Candice Pool in Houston, Texas. This marriage lasted about a month and ended with an annulment. He later reconciled with Pool and got engaged to her on February 18, 2013. On December 29, 2013, Neistat and Pool were married in a Jewish wedding service in Cape Town, South Africa. They have two daughters, Francine and Georgie. He is Jewish.

His grandmother Louise Neistat (born Louise Celice Grossman) was a tap dancer and one of the Radio City Music Hall's Rockettes during World War II. In 2004, he directed a video in which his grandmother made the "world's greatest french toast", and delivered it to his son, Owen. On October 31, 2011, Neistat posted a four-minute short film on YouTube about his grandmother. The video opens with him asking his grandmother how many more years she thinks she will put on her annual tap dance show, then inter-cuts various press clippings from her accomplished life with footage from her most recent tap dance show, the focus being the money her tap dancing has raised for cancer research-related charities. The video was tweeted by YouTube's official Twitter handle and appeared on numerous news and viral video websites including the Huffington Post. Twenty-two days after the video was posted, Louise died of natural causes at the age of 92; Neistat wrote her obituary and delivered the eulogy.

On May 10, 2019, Neistat announced that he would be leaving New York City and moving to Los Angeles to be with his family, in a video titled, "i'M Leaving NYC Forever..". On September 14, 2022, Neistat uploaded a video stating he was moving back to New York City.

Neistat supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 United States presidential election.

On October 11, 2016, Neistat released a video titled "who im voting for president", in which he claimed people having different opinions is "the nature of a healthy democracy, ... but this is not that" claiming the 2016 United States presidential election was different and that the "election had very little to do with politics, policy or legislation". Neistat received criticism for the video because he claimed creators who did not endorse Hillary Clinton were "complicit" with Trump's "lying, racist, misogynist(ic)" attributes and were "partially responsible for handing him (Donald Trump) reins of power".

On September 27, 2019, Neistat acknowledged that he should've taken a more "effective" route to making the video as he was "too upset, angry and emotional" when it was made. He also said the video lacked "diplomacy" and that he still feels the same way about Trump.

Neistat supported Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 United States presidential election.
