Stick Your Face In It!

At the YouTube Roundtable

As amazing the Los Angeles area is for finding and working with talent, it isn’t known for being the hub of all things internet related. That distinction goes to the cities surrounding the San Francisco bay, and we are constantly traveling that way to attend conferences and discuss innovations in the online world so that we can harness new technologies. That’s why it was super awesome of YouTube to bring a huge chunk of their staff down the coast to Santa Monica today for the YouTube Roundtable, a discussion between YouTube and their partners.

We chatted it up with likes of Tay Zonday and that guy who started the Keyboard Cat trend, learning where YouTube plans to take things in the future.  We’re most excited to start using YouTube as a community where people can share their Starring You videos.  If you’ve never seen it, we’ve got an awesome collection of our favorite fan-made Starring Yous growing there.  We search YouTube for new entries every week, but if we miss you, link to your upload and we’ll include it in the playlist!

Above, the guys from Wicked Awesome Films chat it up with Liam Kyle Sullivan.

  1. I’m happy to see the accompanying products like mugs, etc. but why aren’t they available with more of the “starring you” videos? I’d love a “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out Mug” etc. Will more products be available in the future?

  2. Hey Barbara,

    Good point! Having more accompanying images available with our animations would be pretty awesome.

    Thanks for your suggestion!
