In a post last week I rambled about MrSafety. Not inaccurate information, but not related to the essence of the video he posted. You see, I don’t finish videos. But neither do you.
Cory called me that day, and explained that the video was intended as his announcement that he’s moving behind the camera. His intention (hence the name SMPFilms) was to be a film director, and he wants to find other stars besides himself to feature in his videos.
I challenged him, of course: “Cory I’m not your agent, but if I was I’d remind you that your most popular videos feature you.” His response:
- I enjoy directing and producing.
- I wants to help other people become popular.
Certainly that will reflect well on him and SMPFilms if he helps uncover the next Smosh or something.
Whatya think? Cory does seem to watch the medium carefully. His model is somewhat different from the Mediocrefilms one: The Retarded Policeman’s channel has gone from 20 to 100K-plus subscribers pretty quickly by bringing in some YouTube A-listers (and me).
Will Cory grow if he finds some acting no-names and lifts them up? Will it help his channel, or simply promote some unknown Tubers? I suppose it depends on if the content is good… and if his actors are better looking than him and his cat.
