Kurt Hugo Schneider’s ‘College Musical’ to Graduate at YouTube Space LA
With “High School Musical” now a distant memory, YouTube fans can get ready to watch “College Musical,” a feature film created by YouTuber Kurt Hugo Schneider.
Having put together “College Musical” four years ago with his college classmate and the movie’s star, Sam Tsui, Schneider will release a live stream of the movie on his YouTube channel on September 3 at 8pm PDT. The movie will stream from YouTube Space LA, after which it will become available on Netflix, Google Play, On Demand, and iTunes.
The feature film stars Allison Williams of “Girls” alongside Julie Shain, Miles Jacoby, and Emma Barash, among others. Tsui’s experience extends to appearances on “The Sing Off” and “American Idol” in addition to his popular YouTube videos, which have gotten him over 1.5 million subscribers on the platform.
Before the feature film, “College Musical” appeared as a short-form series on YouTube in January 2009. It started morphing into a feature film the year after, amassing a cast and crew of 65 members.
Jake Bruene wrote the “College Musical” screenplay, while Andrew Johnson and Schneider composed the movie’s score. NoodleHouse Studios produced with funding from Peter Schneider Productions. You can watch the trailer below:
