Jake joins us to talk about the differences between creating you own YouTube videos and working on a big production with crews, budgets, legal overhead, and tons and tons of problem solving.
Uniquely, Could You Survive the Movies (CYSTM) needs to reference major motion pictures while being careful not to get into hot water with copyright issues. For instance, a graphic artist had to remove the Ghostbusters’ logo from a toy car used throughout its episode., or the trouble with using a Captain Disillusion marshmallow man in the thumbnail.
We also talk about some of the mishaps such as Jake missing the protective mats on a stunt or when the whole crew got poison oak. Along the way we talk about how YouTube promotes its original series and how that differs from traditional media companies like Netflix.
There’s a new dream job out there and it’s Creator. The allure of flexing your creative muscles in the limelight for a living is enticing young and old to jump on YouTube and start recording. But a lot can happen on the way to millions of subscribers.
In ‘The Create Unknown’ co-hosts Kevin Lieber and Matt Tabor take time off from getting millions of views on the education YouTube channel Vsauce2 to reveal how dozens of dynamic creators have successfully navigated the ever-changing, uncertain landscape of online media — and how others have been swallowed by digital quicksand.
Through intensely personal conversations, listeners learn what it takes to not only survive but thrive as a creator and in life. Interviews cover everything from getting started as a YouTuber to how you land that first brand deal and the realities of being a digital influencer.
‘The Create Unknown’ is the ultimate behind-the-scenes YouTube podcast. New episodes come out every other Thursday. Listen for free on your favorite podcast app and on YouTube.
