Why YouTube Star Driven Film 'Camp Takota' Is Worth Watching!

Posted: Updated:

We sent the always fun Flula to the Camp Takota Premiere Party Tuesday where YouTube stars like Tyler Oakley, Chester See, Rhett & Link, and the Holy Trinity! (Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and Mamrie Hart) graced the grass carpet.

The first feature film from the YouTube trio Hannah Hart, Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart, Takota was released this morning and has already received a lot of praise! Not surprisingly, the team has found unique ways to promote and distribute the film using the ladies loyal YouTube fan base to drive purchases leading up to today's big release. They also partnered with VHX.TV who specializes in digital distribution. You can download the movie now at http://camptakota.com

For über fans, the site also has fun campy care packages you can buy with the film that range in price including everything from a signed movie poster, custom voicemail from the girls, google hangout and more!

Should this model succeed, there's no doubt that a sequel could be in the works and more traditional media opportunities to come for the stars.
