Another Valentine’s Day has come and gone.
How did it go for you? Let us know your stories!
Here at TenEighty, we’re always looking for new creators to add to our love list. We even have a form for them to fill out – romantic, we know. If you are a smaller creator we have yet to discover, or know someone who is, don’t be afraid to get in touch!
Anyway, it’s Round-Up time – take this article out for a nice date, drink champagne with it (if you’re of age), and share a couple of chocolate-dipped strawberries. Enjoy!
Terry & Tiara | Guy Larsen
Artist extraordinaire Guy Larsen is back at it again with an exquisite video that is so beautifully artsy it sits far above the majority of YouTube content. Based on a poem by Mark Grist, it follows puppets Terry and Tiara as their fake world comes crumbling down around them. Let’s put it this way: they are not good people. It might not be a bad thing for that to happen to them. Watch the video and work out who to sympathise with. It’s easy to see why it was selected to be a part of multiple film festivals.
The way in which Guy approaches his work and the level of detail he bestows upon it is always appreciated by his audience, which deserves to be bigger.
WALK THE WALK | KSI vs Joe Weller Documentary | XO
The True Geordie, Laurence McKenna, Stephen Tries, and Will Lenney are all YouTube powerhouses in their own right, and they’ve now joined forces to create the powerhouse channel XO, which is set to be filled with the likes of travel vlogs, football things, podcasts, and documentaries.
Documentaries are where we start, with Walk the Walk which covers the KSI vs. Joe Weller fight from a new perspective, showing things about the landmark YouTube event that you will have never seen before. If you’re a fan of either KSI or Joe this one is not to be missed.
It’s not about the result, it’s about all of it.
Fortnite Battle Royale | Does Camping Really Work? | Completed It Mate
Have you heard of Fortnite? Of course you have! Well, the battle royale behemoth shows no signs of stopping, and many creators are taking notice and making videos. James Buckley is one of these people. He’s known for his camping ways in games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and this video is the answer to the question “Does Camping Really Work?” in Fortnite.
You should watch the video and get some tips on how to do it – or how not to do it. Find out which one you need the answer to!
Tipsy Talk with Guillermo del Toro | Hazel Hayes
Guillermo del Toro’s transcendent new film The Shape of Water won three BAFTAs last Sunday, including Best Director for Del Toro himself. The wonderful Hazel Hayes got to sit down with him as part of her Tipsy Talk series.
They talk about many different things, including how Guillermo made the film as an ointment to combat the weight of the world as it is today – which is definitely strenuous, especially for a Mexican man who spends as much time in America as he does. The most powerful part of the video features superb, eloquent dialogue between Hazel and Del Toro, as they discuss how imperfections are what make great art. This is something we can all latch onto: the amalgamations of your imperfections are what make you, you. Revel in that.
And yes, Sammy Paul, we love him too.
The Nerd³ Paradox | OfficialNerdCubed
This video from Daniel Hardcastle is filled to the back teeth with jokes. It’s like the Chubby Bunny Challenge of satire videos. Trump jokes, Logan Paul jokes – it has it all. Nerd3, more like Jokes3.
This is an incredibly well thought out and put together video. Thank you, Dan, for talking about things that the internet can’t seem to have a proper conversation about. The Red Dead Redemption joke is the best one. Watch the video to find out what it is!
Steven Bartlett sat down with Caspar Lee for a podcast that lasted just shy of an hour. They spoke about a number of things, including mental health and the well-known phenomenon of “impostor syndrome”. It’s a thoroughly engaging conversation that shows new sides of both participants.
George Yonge speaks about last summer – which he spent in Ohio with people he met on Twitter – in an aesthetically-pleasing video that showcases a great cover of Catfish and the Bottlemen, along with some beautiful photos and footage of some obviously wonderful times. The happiness radiates through the whole video.
Samantha Harvey gives us a cover of Dua Lipa’s IDGAF, with a hint of de-swearing. (Got to think about that AdSense money. We get it!) This is one of so many covers that show Samantha’s incredible voice and we look forward to listening to more original music, just like her single Please, which is available to stream and download right now.
