Youtube Cinema?

by Kayla Perrin

I admit, this is a bit of a cheat. Since I posted this blog last month SOOOO late and most everyone missed it, I am reposting my blog about the wonderful world of Youtube cinema.

There are a myriad of weird videos on Youtube, which you'll know if you're like me and you check out the site. Like videos of people's kids doing weird things, odd animal friendships (like rats and cats getting along), numerous book trailers, and the various beauty tutorials (I've uploaded one myself). But I recently discovered a whole new venue for independent filmmakers.

Digital video has made creating movies easy...and cheap. I certainly like to take advantage of my camera's HD video mode for my child's birthday parties, special family occasions, and even to make a couple of my own book trailers. Now, aspiring filmmakers are not only producing short films to share with the world via Youtube...they're making some with amazing visual quality.

Video quality has grown leaps and bounds over the past few years, and much of the quality looks like film. I've been impressed with the quality of the video, the storylines, and the acting.

So, without further ado, I'll share some of the wonderful short films I have found with you. Enjoy! And I wish all of you the merriest of Christmases and all the best for 2011!!

And I found this filmmaker on Youtube, but this particular film is posted on Vimeo. It's a short horror film and very well done!

Canon 550D horrorfilm ("R.I.P") from Anders Øvergaard on Vimeo.

Now, this is a bit of a cheat holiday greeting from last year. I've been at a ski resort with my daughter this week and haven't had time to do a new one. But, the sentiment is the enjoy!

Lastly, this video I found on Youtube, is more of a movie trailer--wow, it looks great!


  1. Great post Kayla! You really can become a youTube star - and make a lot of money apparently! So there you go - more and more we're seeing this kind of thing - as the internet begins to replace the TV as the primary source of entertainment for young people esp.

  2. Yes, quite a myriad of really good stuff on youtube! I'm impressed.

  3. This looks fantastic, Kayla!

    I've bookmarked this so I can come back and watch each one. I'm a big fan of the expanding internet film showcase. There are some intriguing new websites featuring web series too.

    Great post! I'm looking forward to watching these.
