Shane's hotly anticipated new video seems to be coming along nicely

Shane Dawson has been drip-feeding information about his new documentary series. While the subject of the videos is currently unknown (although we have some pretty strong ideas), Shane has started to peel back the curtain a little into the creative process.

In a tweet to a fan, Shane commented that he and his creative team have "like 100 hours of footage" which is leading to some beefy editing time.

It seems like it's been a heavy shoot

Shane has been very clear that it has not been a walk in the park. It's not just the physical exhaustion of capturing all the footage, the documentary also seems to have taken an emotional toll on Shane. He said that: "I have to say i’ve never felt more drained, emotional, confused, excited, angry, yet creatively fulfilled in my life."

Shane says he had 'a breakdown' while filming the documentary.

Shane says it is the ever-expanding scope of the project that lead to his 'breakdown'.

Shane's new documentary series is easily the most anticipated upcoming video on YouTube. His previous videos in a similar vein about TanaCon and Jeffree Star have garnered tens of millions of views and this new video seems set to do the same. It's been yet another height of success for Shane and adds to his incredible YouTube career, which we examined in our recent article 'The Unstoppable Rise Of Shane Dawson'.
