ONN – Lonelygirl15 Was A Fake Vlog And Signal That Digital Technology Was Transforming Media And News
Lonelygirl15… GAVE YOU WHAT YOU WANTED !I’m responding to Renetto’s video with yet another different take on the entire Lonelygirl15 matter.
Lonelygirl15 was a video-blog featuring a young lady named Bree. Bree gained a ton of attention because she sat and talked about just random thoughts, or doings – nothing political. And they only lasted over a minute – reflecting the slower bandwidth of the early part of the 21st Century.
But her style and settings of just being in her room, and occasionally using one of her stuffed animals, made her vlogs engaging.
But the rumor was her seemingly innocent and real presentation was fake. The Zennie62 video-blog you’re watching was one of many in a thread conversation that YouTube had at the time, and expressed a view of the revelation.
Lonelygirl15’s Bree was actually an actress named Jessica Rose, and she was 19, not 16, as her character presented herself to be. A number of YouTubers, most notably Paul Robinet AKA Renetto, were major league pissed off. Not me.
I saw Lonelygirl15 then, as I see it now: revolutionary. It was a window into the world we live in today, where video-blogs selling items are commonplace, and some shows gain more views that their television counterparts. It was and is also an example of how an alternative way of using YouTube is, in itself, a tech approach. In other words, the makers of Lonelygirl15 understood how to use the digital space, the medium, and in doing so, changed how we think about it.
Melanie Merkosky: The 2nd Lonelygirl15
And here’s the second actress to play Lonelygirl15, Melanie Merkosky. I met her at CES 2012 Las Vegas and during the Inaugural International Academy Of Web Television awards. where she was up for an award for her work on Continuum. She stopped. to talk about how her piece of history came to be:
Here’s Melanie, starring in Continuum, Jun 7, 2012:
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
