“For film critic and historian Joe Leydon, the cross-pollination of Hollywood and YouTube is only natural. He calls the clips on YouTube “the cinematic equivalent of garage band recordings…just as there will be elements of garage bands that will be incorporated into mainstream music, there will also be garage bands signed to recording contracts with major labels,” says Leydon. “I’m sure that some of the people who will be releasing summer comedies in 2008 are making little comedy shorts for display right now on YouTube.” — from Dave Roos‘ “The Jackass Generation,”in issue # 67 of MovieMaker magazine.
