• SHIFT: YouTube Star Documentary

    How hard is it to become a full-time YouTuber? And can anyone really do it? Available on YouTube and TELUS Optik TV ► Subscribe http://bit.ly/1wBN6dX

    A UK study recently found that 40% of 16-24 year olds would rather be a YouTube star over becoming a doctor, lawyer or pop music star. In this doc, we interview three big YouTubers (Austin Pamaj, Convos With My 2YR Old, and IFHT) and start a channel from scratch to find out what it takes to make it online. We get advice from YouTube and other YouTubers during a YouTube meet-up in Vancouver. After one of our videos go viral, we receive an interesting offer from BroadbandTV, the third-largest Multi-Channel Network in the world.

    Produced with the support of TELUS.
