“Internet Surfer” Showcases Celebrity YouTube Channels | SoKrispyMedia
SoKrispyMedia‘s 360/VR production, “Internet Surfer” is a collaboration with other well-known Youtubers. The video’s main character, Eric Leigh, is sucked into his Grandmother’s computer, and travels into the worlds of various celebrity YouTubers (Jamie Costa, Corridor Digital, Zach King, Cyanide & Happiness, Lindsey Rempalski), interrupting their daily lives. A great 360° collaboration, SoKrispyMedia uses their 360° technical expertise and storytelling prowess to weave a story together with all the diverse talent.
The video is a sequel to Channel Surfer, SoKrispyMedia’s first 360 video production. A big shout-out to SoKrispy for using Mettle 360/VR plugins with Adobe software for 360/VR post-production.
SoKrispyMedia uses Mettle SkyBox plugins with Adobe software in their production pipeline.
SoKrispyMedia (Sam Wickert and Eric Leigh) have been making Youtube videos for their popular channel since 2009. Childhood friends, they have basically grown up with the medium, making content that is fun for for them to create, and appeals to their use base (413,882 subscribers • 103,278,833 views).
Sam Wickert explains:
“I was inspired to make this video alongside many of the talented filmmakers and creators Eric and I have met running our YouTube channel, SoKrispyMedia, throughout the years. We originally wanted to complete this video a year ago, but opted towards originally making it’s predecessor, Channel Surfer, which allowed us to practice our VR filmmaking and create a demo to pitch to many of the talented filmmakers involved with “Internet Surfer”. We felt this piece was necessary to create in 3D VR because it creates an intimate relationship with the audience as they follow with Eric through the various worlds of the different internet creators.”
