Casey Neistat’s 368, Creators Offline Use “Micro-Conference” To Offer Videomakers A Lower Bar For Success

On Thursday, July 11, many online video creators, fans, and executives turned their attention to VidCon, where some of the industry’s biggest names connected with their peers and viewers.

That day, YouTube product boss Neal Mohan delivered a detailed pitch that outlined many of the platform’s incoming innovations. Afterward, some of the world’s top social media standouts, including pop star Meghan Trainor, Good Mythical Morning duo Rhett & Link, and talented American Sofie Dossi converged on the Anaheim Convention Center to perform at the annual YouTube Onstage event.

Meanwhile, 2,800 miles away from Anaheim, in an airy studio space in Lower Manhattan, a very different kind of event offered its own brand of creator-facing advice.

That same Thursday, Casey Neistat’s 368 and the nascent organization Creators Offline co-produced a so-called “micro-conference,” headlined by a cadre of creators who are either brand new to the influencer game and/or hustling

Rhett & Link’s Mythical Entertainment Paid Roughly $10 Million For Smosh (Report)

Mythical Entertainment, the digital media firm owned and operated by best friends and business partners Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal, reportedly paid roughly $10 million to acquire Smosh from the bank that assumed Defy Media’s assets in the wake of its bankruptcy.

The deal was announced earlier this month, after Smosh arrived on the auction block following Defy's sudden shutdown in November. The acquisition, The Hollywood Reporter notes, will vastly expand the Mythical empire to 70 million subscribers and 250 million monthly views across 14 total YouTube channels. The biggest names within this empire include the flagship Smosh channel (24.1 million subscribers) and McLaughlin and Neal’s daily talk show Good Mythical Morning (15.1 million subscribers).

The Reporter recounts that McLaughlin was in touch with Smosh co-founder Ian Hecox after Defy's demise to discuss potential collaborations. “What I really admire about Mythical is that it’s not owned by a large conglomerate,” Hecox said, “so

It’s Official: Smosh Has Been Acquired By Rhett & Link’s Mythical Entertainment

In something of a full-circle moment, storied YouTube comedy brand Smosh has been purchased by another digital-native best friend-slash-creator duo after the channel was temporarily left in limbo following the abrupt -- and scandal-ridden -- shutdown of parent company Defy Media.

Smosh, which was founded by best friends Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox in 2002, has been purchased by Mythical Entertainment, which is owned Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal -- who host the immensely popular YouTube talk show Good Mythical Morning. Given that Padilla departed Smosh last summer to launch a solo career, Hecox and the other members of the crew confirmed the acquisition in a video today (below) -- roughly four months after Defy’s demise.

"They are creators helping creators," Hecox said of McLaughlin and Neal's involvement in the deal. "We get to do whatever we want, and we’re super, super excited." Smosh added that its four existing YouTube channels -- Smosh,

Rhett & Link Tout Morning Show Dominance In Cheeky 50-State Outdoor Billboard Campaign

YouTube hosts Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal have turned to a decidedly old-school marketing format to promote their new media smash Good Mythical Morning.

In order to spread the word about the daily YouTube talk series, which they claim is the internet's most-watched morning show, the best friends and business partners have launched a nationwide billboard campaign. The campaign is a satirical nod to local news station advertising -- with the implication that TV news is almost comedically nostalgic. Billboards are set to run through the month of September with one in all 50 states, situated in unusually-named cities -- except, due to local laws, in Maine, Vermont, Alaska, and Hawaii. In these states, ads will appear on buses, buildings, and airports.

On the billboards, McLaughlin and Neal are dressed like stereotypical news anchors with suits that have actually been painted onto their shirtless torsos. Each billboard proclaims Good Mythical Morning's

Insights: “Short And Safe” Is The Marketing Mantra In A Post-Backlash NewFronts

With 2018’s New York NewFronts safely put to bed, a couple of trends are coming into focus.

For one, companies on both sides of the Pacific are bankrolling boatloads of short-form video projects as everyone positions themselves for the next stage of mobile. It’s where the audiences, and their money, are.

That should be great news for online creators who’ve honed their chops with punchy, short-form tales far from traditional Hollywood storytelling structures. In an era where mobile content just keeps getting more and more valuable, shows optimized for small screens, vertical formats, and shorter attention spans are hot again. Add in the imminent arrival of superfast 5G technologies in the U.S., Korea, and China, and catering to handheld audiences makes even more sense.

Even the biggest companies are going long on shorts.

Netflix, home of 100 feature-length shows this year, also commissioned a new shorts series from BuzzFeed News called Follow This.

Rhett & Link are going to Super Bowl Lii. The co-hosts of the popular YouTube series Good Mythical Morning will appear in a commercial for website builder Wix that will air during the third quarter of this year's NFL championship.
