You ever hear of a guy named Mart Ford? No? Well you will Star Wars fans! Very soon, Mart is bringing us a brand new YouTube experience. Sure to please, with a variety of content that will quench your hunger for not just Star Wars but a plethora of other subject matter as well. I recently had a chance to catch up with Mart and ask him to share with TGR fans just who he is and what he is doing.
“I was born in Kent, England – ever since my first glimpse of Star Wars in 1997 when my dad brought home the Special Edition VHS I was hooked, not only on Star Wars, but movies and the magic behind them. Back in 2014 I had an idea to create a YouTube channel creating movie reviews and news shows, but life got in the way. When I was ready to revisit the idea, it turned into [a] platform for anyone to share their ideas. Now Gamatube is planning to become a YouTube based television network where anyone can pitch an idea for a show and have a pilot broadcast. To give anyone a chance at honing and developing their talents. Whether it’s acting, hosting, producing or directing.
I love this idea simply because there are so many talented people out there that want to make their ideas known to the public and get their voices heard.
Ever since YouTube launched in February of 2005 its platform has given the populous a way to share their creations namely videos, but in the past decade it has become so much more. YouTube today is full of fan made creations of all kinds from whole movies to talk show type blogs on an immense variety of topics. Below is Mart’s vision for his awesome creation!
Gamatube is a new YouTube channel offering viewers the best in Entertainment. With new shows premiering, such as Conversations in Coruscant, a casual chat show discussing news in the Star Wars universe. Also watch out for Panda vs The World. Watch Panda, a terrible gamer fight her way through the simplest of games and fail. Catch up with us on social media as we post entertainment news and movie reviews!
We look forward to what Mart Ford has in store for the future. We’re also working with him closely on a couple of Star Wars shows he has in the works! We will keep everyone up to date as Mart continues his journey to build Gamatube!
