  • Jimmy Fallon Drops Supercut Of YouTubers Lip Syncing At VidCon

    mazzi-maz-sam-pepper-lip-syncLate Night With Jimmy Fallon has done an exemplary job of interacting with the YouTube community, but a new video takes things to the next level. The Late Night YouTube channel has released a video in which YouTube creators take time out of VidCon to lip snyc to various popular songs. The lip syncing videos were filmed at a VidCon booth where participants were invited to burst out in fake song alongside a cardboard cutout of Jimmy Fallon. During the convention, a steady stream of YouTube creators stopped by, and the Late Night channel assembled 37 different performances in a single playlist. Two weeks after VidCon, viewers received the main attraction: A supercut that combined all of the videos into one. Most people with at least a passing interest in the YouTube community should be able to pick out a few familiar faces, and a complete list of participants is available in the video's description. The lip syncing format references Fallon's previous battles against celebs like Emma Stone and Paul Rudd, but this crop of participants shows of the Late Night crew's deep understanding of YouTube.

  • Netflix Doubles Emmys Presence (And Then Some) With 31 Nominations

    Orange-Is-The-New-Black-Cast-Background-Season-2Last year, Netflix made a big splash at the Emmys. Led by breakout hit House of Cards, the digital video platform scored 14 nominations and earned its first win when David Fincher took home a gold statuette for his directorial work on House of Cards' debut episode. This year, Netflix's Emmys presence has soared even higher. With Orange Is The New Black joining House of Cards in the spotlight, Netflix has earned 31 Emmy nominations, more than double last year's total. Orange Is The New Black debuted too late to earn any Emmy consideration in 2013, but it was a given that Jenji Kohan's excellent prison dramedy would receive plenty of love from Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Sure enough, Orange Is The New Black fared well; its 12 nominations are one fewer than the 13 given to House of Cards. Together, Netflix's two biggest hits combine for most of the site's nominations and give Netflix a spot in most of the major writing, acting, and directing categories. The most prominent documentary to be distributed by Netflix also scored some Emmy noms. The Square, which was previously nominated for an Academy Award, is up for four Emmys. Some may wonder why Netflix is allowed to submit The Square as both a film and a TV show, but this at least provides one reason why the platform is so interested in distributing documentaries. Given its unique format, it can "double dip" in the two most important awards ceremonies of the year

  • YouTube Millionaires: Anneorshine’s “Style Reflects Upon Who I Am”

    ann-le-anneorshineMany YouTube style gurus, whether they are makeup experts or nail artists or "haul girls", tend to focus on one aspect of the style genre. Not so for Ann Le.

Through DIY tutorials, choice looks, and home decoration videos, Le covers the entire spectrum of lifestyle videomaking. Here's what she had to say about her YouTube success story: Tubefilter: How does it feel to have one million subscribers? What do you have to say to your fans? Ann Le: It feels really good but it is also very surreal. I still can’t grasp it, as it’s not a physical thing other then a number on a screen. But thinking about the numbers, it feels like I’ve hit a major milestone. I’m so thankful and I feel very touched that I’ve been able to reach a million subscribers and millions of views. I’m humbled that so many people have enjoyed my videos and what I’ve shared with them.

Whether it is through style video, a DIY tutorial, or an artistic video, it is important to me that I inspire my viewers to discover their inner creativity and rekindle their love for themselves.

  • New Amnesty International Tool Helps Journalists Verify YouTube Videos

    citizen-evidence-lab-amnesty-internationalHome videos are a crucial journalistic asset. Amateur videographers like Abraham Zapruder have managed to capture some of the most significant events in history, and Amnesty International wants to ensure that citizen journalism maintains its power. It has launched a new tool center centered around the largest archive of amateur news videos: YouTube. The human rights non-profit has launched the Citizen Evidence Lab, a website that helps journalists and human rights activists verify YouTube videos. The Citizen Evidence Lab includes several guides and checklists that assists users as they figure out the who, what, when, where, and why of their target videos. An introductory exercise allows users to practice on an example video before they dive in with their own choices. As Amnesty International explains in its introductory video, user-generated YouTube videos have the potential to unlock new information in important areas such as Syria, and the Citizen Evidence Lab can give viewers more faith on a website where fakery is common. Of course, you don't have to be a journalist to use the Lab.

  • Julian Smith’s New Video Explores Horrors Of Spotty WiFi

    julian-smith-wifiJulian Smith is one of those online video creators who doesn't release new material very often, but his videos are always on point. Smith's latest offering is no exception. The filmmaker has written, directed, and starred in a sketch called "WiFi", which dives into a world without high-speed Internet. "WiFi" stars Smith as a man who begins to lose his mind after his Internet connection cuts out. The other cast members in the video are a trio of online video creators: Chester See, Joe Hanson, and Shane Hartline. The result combines Community-style genre parody with the fast pace viewers have come to expect from their web videos. "WiFi" is Smith's first new video in three months and only his eighth in the past year. While that is an infrequent schedule, Smith has also released another new video on Blip, as he did with "WiFi" a week before its arrival on YouTube (Smith has a distribution deal with Blip.)

  • AWEme To Mash Up Movie Weapons With ‘Man At Arms: Reforged’

    man-at-arms-reforged-batarangMan At Arms has emerged as one of DEFY Media's most significant web series, and the multi-channel network is now attempting to make lightning strike twice. The AWEme channel will host Man At Arms: Reforged, a new version of Man At Arms that will mash up the signature weapons of iconic characters. Man At Arms has established a winning formula based around three main selling points: Lifelike imitations of film, TV, and video game weapons; the entertaining personality of blacksmith Tony Swatton; and a format that easily targets fans of ultra-popular franchises. That formula has helped draw two million subscribers and 87 million views to AWEme; while Man At Arms is not the only show on its home channel, it is by far the most popular. Reforged will switch up the ingredients but will utilize the same basic formula. Instead of Swatton, the new series will center on Baltimore Knife and Sword, a Maryland smithing company that creates movie weapons. Reforged's creations will differ slightly from those of the original show. Instead of faithfully recreating famous arms, Reforged will imagine what would happen if two characters came together to forge a single weapon. For instance, the trailer shows off a pair of Wolverine claws shaped like batarangs. You can probably figure which character would whip those out in battle

  • Fund This: ‘The Knife Thrower’ Promises Unique Animated Style

    knife-thrower-indiegogoProject Name: The Knife Thrower Asking For: $5,000 on Indiegogo Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $4,059 Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 5 Description: The Knife Thrower figures to be a classic coming-of-age story. It will tell the story of a legendary hero who, as you might expect, will use top-notch knife skills to take down an evil entity known as the King of Wasp. That may seem like a typical plot, but creator Anthony Jegu doesn't seem to be all that focused on intricate twists and turns. Instead, he has pioneered a unique animation style that will breathe life into The Knife Thrower. Judging from Jegu's pitch video, the characters will be black shadows against colored backgrounds to create a mythical look worthy of the fantastical story. This style will remind some video game fans of Limbo, the critically-acclaimed indie darling that featured its own shadowy characters
