Hollywood Movies on YouTube. Yawn.

Tags: | |

YouTube MoviesI have a really, really hard time getting excited about full-length Hollywood movies coming to YouTube. I like what’s already there. I love the focused conversation generated by shortform video. I don’t need tl;dw stuff when I’m juggling ten browser tabs, stringing together my own entertainment instead of having some overpaid director string it together for me.

Nevertheless, we must welcome Hollywood to the YouTube nation. YouTube is a level playing field welcoming all video content creators. That includes big studios.

I would also like to point out that YouTube hosted its first full-length feature film seventeen months ago, with the release of Four-Eyed Monsters. Hollywood is certainly welcome to post longform video, but what they’re doing is certainly nothing new. If I hear one studio exec claim “innovation”, I will kick his Johnny-come-lately ass.
