Top Ten Famous Animators on Youtube
Who doesn't know about Youtube? This is a biggest video-sharing website where every users can upload, share and view videos. According to Alexa rank, Youtube being a third busiest website in the world, under Google and Facebook.
Youtube created by three former PayPal employees in February 2005. In this web, unregistered users may watch videos, and everyone can register to upload unlimited number of videos. Videos that are considered to contain potentially offensive content are available only to registered users 18 years old and older. In November 2006, YouTube, LLC was bought by Google Inc. for $1.65 billion, and now operates as a subsidiary of Google.
One of the profession who very glad for Youtube is an animator, a man/woman who creates animation with computer software and make them can be watched by anyone. In Youtube, a good animation video can be viewed millions times and may be reupload by another users. In this lens I write about ten famous animators in Youtube.
Behind The List - The way I get a list
Watching and considering millions video uploaded by thousands users is not ease to spotted as "the famous". This task very subjective and the result is difference when be done by others. But I make some criteria below.
The user making video by own or by the company which he/she involved in the team. So, the user who reupload or remake from others video is eliminated from the list.
- Huge viewer
One video can be noted as a famous one if have been viewed by one million viewer annually or 3.000 viewer daily.
The user has been uploaded at least three videos. So, if you upload only two ones and have viewed 12 millions times you will be eliminated, I am sorry.
- 2D or 2D or whatever style
It doesn't matter what type of video animation style. Some of them just 2D animation, 3D and so on.
The uniqueness means the style is difference with another.
