WJS: New Media Moguls

The WJS ran a great article this weekend about the personalities behind new media ventures. Its is a great article and a great excuse to post another picture of Christine Dolce.

From the article:

“As videos, blogs and Web pages created by amateurs remake the entertainment landscape, unknown directors, writers and producers are being catapulted into positions of enormous influence.

Some of the people who have emerged as digital stars online are true amateurs, people who have simply videotaped themselves in their living rooms and posted the results online. Others are quasi-professionals with some experience in the entertainment industry: writers of a TV pilot that didn’t get picked up; first-time filmmakers who were praised on the film-festival circuit but never found distribution or stand-up comedians who couldn’t graduate from coffee houses and small clubs.

The greatest hope of most Web amateurs is to cross over into “old media” outlets like TV networks and Hollywood. The flagship crossover star in digital entertainment is known by one name: Brookers.

Type the word “Brookers” into the search field of YouTube.com, and a list of some 1,240 videos will appear. Thirty-one of them are videos made by 20-year-old Brooke Brodack of Holden, Mass., who has posted a range of videos starring herself under the screen name “Brookers.” In large part, the other 1,200 or so are Brookers tributes, critiques and imitations, posted by Ms. Brodack’s fans and detractors in response to the clips she’s made.”
