Brandon Bastaldo

Prodigy

Hi, I’m Brandon.

I’m a Digital Media Producer living in Toronto, Ontario. I graduated from the University of Toronto in 2012 with a Honors Bachelors of Arts degree and double majors in English and Film Studies. Since then I’ve been writing, producing visual media, taking photos and interacting with the world via social media.

I enjoy reading, eating delicious meals and watching great films.

Of course, combinations of all three are always welcome.

Check out more of my work at: www.brandonbastaldo.com

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I've seen Ghosts of Mars an incalculable amount of times.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Two movie previews I wrote got published in Tribute Magazine. That was my first time being published in-print in a nation wide magazine.
How do you define cool?
Simple, sophisticated and chic.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I visit websites with a "no link left behind" attitude. My mission isn't complete until every photo, video or link that catches my eye on a web page has been clicked.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Being able to constantly be up on cutting edge tech, ideas and overall innovation. There's a lot going on on the internet and TH helps me to focus on the things I really care about.
What is your favorite trend?
Anything involving gummies.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Write fast, but be simple and effective.
How do you reset to be creative?
Research. The more you know about a trending topic increases the amount of different angles you can come at it from.
What inspires or excites you?
Innovation in any field. Seeing people going beyond the status quo is always exciting.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
Life on Mars.
