YouTube original movie with Awesomeness

September 10, 2015

YouTube and Awesomeness Films have announced that they’re starting production on their first movie together: Dance Camp, a teen drama starring YouTube and Vine stars Meg DeAngelis and Jake Paul.

Directed by the female duo Bert & Bertie, Dance Camp will star Jeter as Hunter, a moronic teenager whose mother ships him off to dance camp.

“Music and dance are universally appealing,” Awesomeness Films president Matt Kaplan said in a release. “We are thrilled to be working with prolific dance experts like Jon and Fatima on Dance Camp as they continue to set the bar for the dance genre.”

With more than 24 million dance-related videos uploaded to YouTube over the past 10 years, dance is one of the most popular categories on the site.

YouTube and Awesomeness Films signed a content deal earlier this year.
