“Camp Takota,” the independent camp comedy starring YouTubers Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and Mamrie Hart, will soon be available on Netflix.
Released on February 14 via the digital distribution service from VHX, “Camp Takota” tells the story of a young woman (Helbig) who returns to her former job as a camp counselor when her personal and professional lives fall apart. At the camp, she rekindles friendships with old pals (Hart and Hart), and together the three fight to save the camp from being closed down.
Along with the trio at the lead, the film also features appearances from other YouTube personalities like Chester See and Sawyer Hartman. Produced by RockStream Studios and Michael Goldfine, and directed by The Brothers Riedell, the film initially sold for $9.99 and debuted third on iTunes independent film chart.
Now it will be available for free on Netflix, starting December 1.
This isn’t the first time a project from the YouTube ecosystem that has made its way to Netflix during a later window. The first two seasons of Freddie Wong’s “Video Game High School” were available on Netflix after their initial run on YouTube. The same thing happened with “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn,” which first premiered on Machinima before expanding to Netflix.Tags: Camp Takota, Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Mamrie Hart, Michael Goldfine, Netflix, RockStream Studios, The Brothers Riedell, VHX, Windowing, YouTube Creators, YouTube-to-Netflix
