Beyond the Brand
Welcome to DangerMan Media. It’s a digital entertainment magazine.
It’s a showcase of Lars Hindsley’s skills in:
- Content Management
- Graphic Design
- Video Production & Editing
- Social Media Management
- Writing & Editing
What’s the angle?
Entertaining education and instruction. If you are reading it or watching it, the goal is to enrich your life from DangerMan’s unique positive energy world view.
Who is DangerMan?
That is actually not an easy question to answer! Why? The brand has a story behind it.
What Will You Find?
From DangerMan you will find YouTube videos which cover topics such as how to play paintball and paintball instruction for those who wanna play paintball to how to inline skate, and other outdoor sports and recreation.
In addition to videos you’ll find many written articles by Lars Hindsley covering movie reviews to celebrity interviews, research articles, pop culture articles and more.
The DangerMan Logo
What’s with the logo? It’s about balance. Similar to Yin & Yang, all things should be and do balance. Light and darkness, good and evil. Here the logo is meant to show that within the DangerMan world of sports and adventure there is a delivery of both help and harm. I believe in being nice until it’s time not to be nice. Live life with love in your heart, but don’t be naive.
Just as important as the balance of passive and aggressive, not everyone that appears to be out to hurt you is out to harm you — not everyone that appears to be friend is indeed such. The red cross of the logo is meant to show the intent to help and heal. The fist and lightning bolts illustrate capable power while also mocking the skull and crossbone warning pirates once ominously shown to their adversaries. The fist is both skull & fist with a power theme woven through. You’ll find multiple lightning bolts hidden in the design.
Why the name DangerMan?
The plan was for privacy. Adopting a name from one’s own novel seemed an easy solution. Then, people began to simply forget your name and you become DangerMan instead. It was a reluctant branding.
The DangerMan Story
DangerMan is the alter ego of Dalton Vrees, the protagonist character in my novel Aeroplane City. Originally written as a short story of only 38 pages, it sat idle for many years eating at me, begging to be told on a broader scale. That vision has come about with Aeroplane City. It’s an old fashioned love story in some ways; boy meets girl, boy loses girl, does boy get girl back? My publisher will categorize it simply as a science fiction. You can learn more about it the website dedicated to the novel, Aeroplane City.
Still this doesn’t fully answer how the name DangerMan became applied to Lars Hindsley. That answer stems from the details above. When I began to put up YouTube videos, I mistakenly believed I could protect my privacy using an alter ego. DangerMan was handy, but as the videos became a popular phenomenon, the name stuck which I wisely adopted as a brand. In the end, DangerMan is both Dalton Vrees, and Lars Hindsley. Why not.
