Creative Collaborations

One thing that fans loved to witness during FanFest is the creative collaborations of their favorites with their fellow Youtube creators from other countries. Not only do fans see the best performances but unity as well with the Youtube community.

Birth of New Online Creators

Given that most people are staying at home during the pandemic, the FanFest also showcases the birth of new online creators. Most of the content made is in line with the Covid-19, baking, learning how to cook, planting, and even working at home. It is good to know that everyone is spending their time learning new things and sharing them with the world.

Despite celebrating only with a live stream, fans, and Youtube creators, and artists are enjoyably gathered together from different parts of the world behind every screen. But still, there are barriers to doing a live stream compared to a physical event. With a virtual event, the following several cons are undeniably challenging to everyone.

●     No face-face interaction – Nothing beats the unique part of meeting your favorite artist in person and jam with them throughout the event. But virtual events have limitations, as attendees didn’t get a chance to have one on one conversations with each other or meet their favorites personally.

●     Distractions – While fans are actively paying attention to the artists’ performances, attending virtually from the comforts of their desks can also display a lot of distractions, whether due to the internet, other persons, pets, etc.

●     Less Excitement – Compared to physical events where you feel the excitement of seeing a live performance on stage, the virtual event can be different.

Conclusion on YouTuber’s Buying Views For FanFest

Youtube is aware of these instances and has prepared something for the fans beforehand. Weeks before the Youtube FanFest 2020, Youtube has decided to explore with an element and formed the YouTube FanFest Dance Movement. To make fans look engaged with the show, they invited fans to record themselves dancing along with Matt Steffanina via a custom web experience. They let fans choose among the three dances of Matt Steffanina. The filmed dance video of every fan is downloadable and will show as if they are dancing alongside Matt but on a virtual stage. It might just be a myth, but many YouTubers are still buying YouTube views to this day.

Using an AI technique called body segmentation, the fans’ body from their filmed video is attached to the virtual scene alongside Matt. This technique has required some artistic design solutions to enable changes in device performance, lighting, and recording quality. The best fan-submitted videos are selected and shown directly during the show with permission. 

Nowadays, where most people spend time alone, Youtube FanFest has become a shoulder to lean on. To inspire and encourage people to showcase their talents, Youtube FanFest has been a ground to unite with the community. Whether physical or virtual, the message of the event never changes. It gathers everyone, both creators and fans from every corner of the world, despite the situation brought by the pandemic outbreak.
