I posted a while back about YouTube celebrities. If you need a star for a low budget movie, would it make sense to use one? Or could you manufacture your own YouTube celebrity for your movie?
I only know of a few YouTube celebrities. There was Justin Bieber who's hit it big, and Tay Zonday who did a Pepsi commercial.
There's a kid named Dylan Eshbaugh who did a show on You Tube called "Dylan's Couch". He would sit on a couch and tell scripted but plausible-sounding anecdotes about his teenage antics. It looks like that series ended a couple of years ago. There were also videos posted of him on stage at acting camp. I googled his name and found that he had appeared in a short film when he he was eight or nine, and he was in an independent Canadian film called Echo Beach.
The movie trailer:
IMDB describes Dylan as the "host". He's shown in the preview speaking directly to the camera. Sounds like he's a narrator or a Greek Chorus.
