Past Bing Future Bing

PBFB is a documentary web series created by Christopher Bingham that shows just how much can happen in one year, a conversation through time that explores how we see ourselves and our goals, past, present, and future.

The Rules

  1. In year one, Past Bing records and edits a video diary every other day. He keeps them offline.
  2. In year two, Future Bing releases the first year of videos exactly one year from the days they were recorded.
  3. Future Bing also films himself and uploads immediately, filling in the alternate days.
  4. One year apart, Past and Future Bing compare notes on what they are doing and how things have changed.

PBFB ORIGINAL SERIES (2011-2012)

Past Bing Future Bing was a two-year project by Christopher Bingham, a YouTuber and comedian, documenting two years in his life. As a student working on his final-year projects, Christopher started documenting his life with a video diary every other day. He kept them to himself, and the following year started uploading them and filling in the alternate days with videos shot in the present day. The result is a conversation through time between 'Past Bing' and 'Future Bing'. This first project started on January 17, 2011, and ended January 18, 2013. START HERE

PBFB ANNIVERSARY (2016-2017)

Five years on, life is just as interesting. Comedian, YouTuber, music producer, and now also a lecturer at a London film college, Bing discusses just how much can still change in a year. This time around Past Bing is working on his second full-length album MMCCXV, and Future Bing is getting a handle on his new job. For one month only, this series revisited the format from January 17 - February 17, 2016, and from January 18 - February 18, 2017. START HERE
