Okay, I have tryed to hold this in, but I can't. I just need to get this oppinion and these thoughs out, so hope you don't mind. Its about the "Close up & personal" show on FAWN, For All Woman Network, a youtube channel based on alot of known youtubers like Michelle Phan, AndreasChoice and Bethany, to mention the ones that I knew before FAWN.
Close Up And Personal - Meet Pro Gamer Kat Gunn
I can't help but feel a bit strange about especially "Close up & personal" show. I'm currently studying Multimediadesign and Communication, and because of that, I often end up analyzing all sorts of design and communication like tv-shows or in this case a youtube show. In this case, I can't help to think this show is clashing two entire different kinds of media: the tv-world, where everything has to be high quality and scripted, and the internet-blogger(/youtube) world where things are more personal and not as scripted.

The show puts itself in the middle of these medias, and is seems almost to perfect and scripted for the blogger-world, but defenately more personal than a tv-show. I personally think this would fit better for tv (in terms of being personal). It is of course interesting to see the expected norms can be twisted. But with this show, I feel like its way to impersonal for youtube. At least for now.. since the show keeps improving, and the world keeps moving. What do you think? I've linked the 4 parts of the latest show-episode, so that you can watch it.
