"Please Subscribe" is a documentary that explains the phenomenon of some of the most influential and unique content creators raising the bar on YouTube and for online media in general. Through a series of intimate narrative vignettes, the film explores the different journeys taken by some of the medium's top creators to get where they are today. The film focuses on one main question, that is "What makes a YouTuber?" Ask anyone in the community and they will each provide a different answer. No one thing makes a YouTuber, but rather it's the journey these creators have taken to pave their own unique path.YouTube is the third most trafficked site on the internet. Each month over 800 million people log on to watch over 3 billion hours of video. Every single minute, 72 new hours of video are uploaded to YouTube. In January 2012, Deloitte published that 9% of cable customers cancelled their service the previous year, and another 11% were considering cancelling. The way people watch entertainment is changing, and it's opening up a new world of opportunities with new names and faces.
