Start a video blog (or daily videocast, pick your poison) and be good at it. Get noticed by TV producers; sign deal. Easy, huh?
Well, it was for Brookers. In what is likely the first videocaster/video blogger to get a TV deal, Brooke Brodack has been signed by Carson Daly to produce some currently unknown television content.
“The Internet has become a new platform for identifying emerging artists such as Brookers. I hope to give her the opportunity to expose her talent on a much larger scale,” said Daly.
“Several things immediately caught my eye watching her videos,” Daly said. “She’s got a fresh point of view, considerable directing skills and a great sense of music and how to use it. There is potential for Webisodes, mobile series and definitely a great TV show here. She’ll be an exciting package to present to networks”
I wonder if Daly will make You Tube take down all of Brooker's content now that she's signed? Wouldn't surprise me, but you never know.
Incredible, isn't it? Total nobody to television star all because of a video camera and a web service.
