The New Route to Hollywood

with one comment


Think way back to 2006 – when Time Magazine’s Person of the Year was ‘You’ – this was perhaps the dawn of the digital era, and a new page for Hollywood. YouTube was the new darling of the web and each of us played a supporting role… almost Oscar-worthy.  Ryan Higa and Sean Fujiyoshi are two such noteworthy stars of Web 2.0 with 1,248,653 YouTube subscribers of their spoofs. As a reward for parodying some of Hollywood’s biggest hits and stars, this dynamic duo got a chance to star in their own film: “Ryan and Sean’s Not So Excellent Adventure,” now the #9 Comedy on iTunes, and #22 in overall movie sales, surpassing The Simpsons Movie, Pineapple Express, and closing in on Harry Potter. While these two Hollywood outsiders may be the first true web-celeb pioneers to parlay a successful movie, Emmy®-winner Lisa Kudrow and ‘friends’ are also blazing the trail with the series “Web Therapy” – not to mention the online juggernaut releases “Dr. Horrible” and “The Guild.”

Also now available on iTunes: A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms // Horatio Hornblower: The Mutiny // Stephen Hawking and the Theory of Everything // A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms // Waiting for Dublin // The Federation of Black Cowboys // Other Voices, Other Rooms // Rudy Ray Moore: Live At Wetlands N.Y.C.
