Now Playing Tracks

Swoon Sunday: <3 the star in her heart. (going up early due to possible power issues i’m having, and this blurb is probably going to be rushed.)

So, Beth has a brilliant head on her shoulders and bursting with talent and potential, it’s only a matter of time before she breaks into bigger things. As a matter of fact, she just made the Montreal Just for Laughs festival lineup in new comedy this weekend.

That’s also the bittersweet thing about wanting to devour everything she does, i won’t be able to when she hits the comedy tv stuff… but I think she needs to be in a bigger environment with more people and more funding so she can make more people happy.

She’s genuine about being in it to have fun and making it fun for her viewers. 

Beth makes my heart beat better so i’ll keep her there as long as i can and appreciate her while i can still see her stuff online and still have the chance to interact with her.

oh?

I haven’t been following it and i just noticed the heyusa stuff isn’t on a main channel of theirs. The new big webseries that interacts with their viewers.
Wasn’t a main issue about ownership of content and supporting their independence?
what am i missing here, what’s the…

"Well they don’t really have like a “thing” on Astronautswanted just the web series. Mdc basically owned the ‘ding’ and hazing and all the names of her vlog days etc. Astronautswanted don’t really ‘own’ anything :]"

thanks for the reply. So why doesn’t Grace just post all the heyusa stuff on itsgrace then to get her channel stats and views up so she can get a higher cpm/rpm rate if she can? 

I think as you said that they were kinda “hired” to do it. Well I don’t know about hired, but I think like Astronautswanted is paying for everything and then they asked Grace and Mamrie and I don’t think the ‘idea’ was grace or mamries so that would be the only thing Astronautswanted actually owns! Just my thought I don’t know if it’s true though. [:

Thanks again.
That’s what i thought also. Astronautswanted owns the concept and coughing up the production and people costs and have Grace and Mamrie to be the hosts/face of a new idea to test interactive web content.

I just don’t see how it’s much different from grace working with mdc who also invested money in production and conceptual things by hiring staff to analyse the dailygrace channel and then tweek it to aim it at her main teen demographic (and alienate the initial 20-30 year old demographic mdc pulls), and have someone there to help her come up with the daily theme format and a structure for when grace was having trouble coming up with daily ideas for each day (source: a podcast i think). And the dailygrace channel was also a test in content to engage viewers.

If this is true, it’s interesting the backlash isn’t consistent and i’m starting to think the shit storm was more so a reaction about finding out the grace and awkward sister personality everyone loved was just an act(ress) to some degree.

I know what you mean. In my opinion HeyUSA is way different that MDC. Cause she being on another channel might give her more viewers and mdc didn’t only own the concept they also owned all the things she did. HeyUSA asks viewers what they should do and they don’t really decide or make rules, I see it in that way anyway… That like they choose what Grace and Mamrie should do and then basically after that Grace and Mamrie can do whatever they want with the “experience” they get And I mean they chose to be a part of this and I think as much as it is promoting Grace I think it’s promoting Mamrie a lot and that’s kind of the point. Well not only that, but that’s one reason.
It’s just what I see :] but I know what you mean!

ah cool, i see. It’s also nice they get to go outside now. Thanks again for the discussion.

what am i missing here, what’s the difference between being hired to make a big series for astronautswanted and mdc?
