Are competitions like the one being run by The Guardian, inviting people to make a film inspired by Mark Ravenhill's story(with a prize of work experience at Channel 4) really in keeping with the spirit of YouTube?
Who's to say. Let's just hope they uncover a filmmaker as good as Joel Moss Levinson (who, apparently, has made $200,000 from his corporate competition videos) . In fact, his films are so imbued with YouTubeishness that I can't quite believe he's for real.
(If he is the new Lonelygirl, then let it be recorded that I was the first to say so.)
