Vfx and Sfx awards

The Streamy Awards is composed of over 30 awards honoring excellence in a variety of contents and areas of expertise such as action, animated videos, comedies and documentaries.

These are both for single shows and for series. Not to forget foreign videos, outside USA and Canada.

Nuts is interested in the awards for technical achievement, especially for visual and special effects.

We found something unexpected in our research ( actually not that surprising) about the last three annual ceremonies.

Corridor Digital seems to be one of the top end. We’re talking about names such as Sam Gorski, Niko Pueringer ( 2015-2016) and Jake Watson.

 

Domina Corridor Digital

It is one of the most rated channels on YouTube. It was funded in 2010 and today counts more that 751 million views and 5 million subscribers.

They specialized in light parodies such as Bohemian Rapsody by The Queen as well as serious series and video games such as web series Rush, inspired by Battlefield.

They reached such a big audience because of the quality of their videos and the ability to play with Vfx and Sfx. They became the most critically acclaimed channel.

Corridor Crew is their second channel. Made for those interested in knowing more about the artistic aspect and behind the scenes of Corridor Digital.

Here, Gorski and Pueringer, the two founders, share their daily routine behind their creations.
