This is the story of “StampyCat” – otherwise known as 23-year-old Joseph Garrett.
Working from his bedroom at his parent’s home, he has produced daily videos of gaming sensation Minecraft. From humble beginnings, he has since signed a deal with a Disney-owned production studio and is likely to feature in a Minecraft film documentary.
Garrett sums up the unique advantage of social media:
‘He admits he would never have been able to get the idea commissioned on television and that YouTube has allowed him to grow. “If there was a TV show which averaged 20 viewers a week people would cancel it immediately – you wouldn’t get a second episode,” he said of his first videos.’
