I had the amazing opportunity to interview the Michael Rousselet. Michael is one of the original members of the viral success YouTube channel ‘5 Second Films’ which has featured Patton Oswalt and Weird Al Yankovic, he wrote the comedy movie ‘Dude Bro Party Massacre III’, is currently a writer for the popular online cartoon site ‘Cyanide and Happiness’, and STARTED the cult following for the movie “The Room.” He is a very cool guy and I gained a lot of valuable insight about writing and collaborating.
In this episode we talk about:
- Writing for a comedy video game
- Starting a cult
- Making a hugely successful viral channel
- Making a movie
- Making great online content
