Anthony Padilla, one of YouTube’s Oz creators, gained internet fame with Smoosh – editing silly, funny sketches with his longtime friend Ian Hex.
In the three years since coming out of Smoosh, Padilla has been performing solo on her YouTube channel, hitting just 5 million subscribers. While he still uses humor, Padilla’s growing interview series has become more serious documentary-style content, including “I spent more days …”
Padilla has now unveiled Productions to its own production company, Presali, to create and create unsolicited written content focusing on “misunderstandings”. He hopes the company can potentially sell its big-budget projects on streaming platforms or TV networks.
In the past, “I leaned towards jokes because it’s easy you” If you don’t like it, yes, you don’t get jokes, “Padilla said.” Now I’m taking more risks. “
Presalike’s first documentary, “I Made a Mistake”, is set to premiere on Friday, December 18 on Padilla’s YouTube channel. The one-hour documentary follows Padilla as she prepares for her first live show, and L.A. Become a member of the Kiss Pink Made Cafe based – it was designed in the Japanese cosplay subculture of anime maid cafes, where Scotly clad servers dot on their patrons.
Padilla and her team shot the footage for the documentary a year ago through the shot experience, “I realized that I wanted it to be something so that I could immerse myself completely and increase the production value of my normal YouTube videos,” he said.
Padilla’s main hires at PreslikeLike Productions are Alasandra Cataniz, a former anonymous content manager who heads business development and producers, and Mike Crisimagna, formerly head of Rate & Link’s “Good Mythical Morning” – who heads post-production.
The documentary “I Made at Wrong” featuring the housemaid cafe staff in the anime has grown from an episode of “I Spent at a Day …”. Padilla told her audience that if the video got more than a million likes, she would join the maids for a day (needless to say, it happened). Padilla is the film’s producer, star and executive producer, as well as working with Kataniz as executive producer and director Zach Zedman.
Presley will continue to produce the interview series “I With Spend A Day With…” which has more than 100 million views to date. The episodes focus on isolated identity disorder, kidnapping survivors and very recent school shooting survivors.
“What I really enjoy doing is being curious and learning about things that fascinate me,” he said. Initially, “I Spent the Day with …” started as a comedy about people who have wonderful beliefs. But now he is taking a different approach, based on the idea that “to judge our people.” There is no reason, even if it is far from our comfort zone. “
Padilla added, “I think if we as a society ask more questions, there will be less prejudice, less justice, less mentality than I have.”
Padilla left Smosh in 2017 to have a stroke on her own. Bought last year Smoosh (Good Mythological Morning) YouTube series Rate and Media, created by Link, has survived and is well under the ownership of media company Mithal Entertainment (after the previous owner Defia Media closed).
Presylike Productions L.A. Its located in the Highland Park neighborhood. The company has six employees and Padilla expects to hire more in the coming years. For now, Presley has no outside investors, but Padilla hopes to keep things a bit limited. The company has earned most of its revenue through sponsorships with partners including SimpleSafe, HBO, Surfshark, IGTV and Warner Bros.
Kataniz said Preslaic would seek contracts with traditional media firms, “we want to maintain Antonio’s ability to explore creativity” and retain ownership of its intellectual property.
“I’ve always loved what Anthony did with his sincerity and curiosity about the way he approached things,” he said. “I’ve always believed in his point of view, and now we’re going to take a longer look and more research.”
