Viralling Out of Control
This parodic video, which is also available at the I'm Voting Republican website, has garnered over two million views. I found myself more interested in the behind-the-scenes story of the people at Synthetic Human Pictures who produced it. Unlike traditional media production companies that general avoid a partisan profile that might cut into their client base, a number of digital video start-ups are achieving name recognition by doing political viral videos. Although they lack a demo reel or samples from commercial clients, Synthetic Human is using the election as a way to "make rain" for their small company.
