PLEASE SUBSCRIBE Official Trailer
"Please Subscribe" is a 2012 documentary film about YouTubers and the YouTube community. Director Dan Dobi raised over $12,000 on Kickstarter to fund the film himself, which features interviews and appearances from a number of the biggest YouTubers of the time, including Hannah Hart, Grace Helbig, Craig Benzine (Wheezy Waiter), Mitchell Davis, Adam Montoya (SeaNanners) and Joe Penna (Mystery Guitar Man). Narration is provided by old friend of What's Trending, Ross Everett.
The documentary serves both as an insight into the personal lives of these YouTube celebrities and an overview of the online video community itself and how it functions. Because YouTube moves so fast, and the film is now two years old, it's also something of a time capsule, showing the site as it was before the current explosion in interest and attention around YouTube personalities.
"Please Subscribe" is now free to stream right here on Netflix, so there's no excuse not to check it out!
Earlier this year, What's Trending hosted Joe Penna, Dan Dobi, Zach Anner and Mitchell Davis for a look back at the experience of making "Please Subscribe" and what they learned from the process. Check it out.
