Portions of this new 3D IMAX film were shot by astronauts on board the International Space Station.
As mentioned on my blogs, Youtube is an advertisers dream for reaching young audiences. Big business – namely traditional Hollywood production companies – are buying up Youtube content, talent and “multi-channel networks”.
As Youtube becomes a traditional commercial programming adventure – the “big stars” have turned into mini production companies with producers, directors, stunt coordinators, writers, composes – will Youtube still appeal to the youth demographic?
As Youtube turns into something different than what it is today, will other content producers – the individuals and small groups that were producing video content for fun – leave for other online video platforms?
My own viewership has dropped off dramatically. There may be many reasons for that unrelated to Youtube changes. But Youtube viewership is changing – and content is increasingly created by production teams rather than the stereotyped kid in his bedroom. Even if it still is a teen in a bedroom, chances are increasing that there’s a business manager, producer and other staff involved now days.
