YouTube Announces New Content at its 2018 Brandcast



With close to 2 billion monthly visitors YouTube is one of the worlds most powerful and prominent content providers in the digital age. The strong buzz around shows like COBRA KAI, DO YOU WANT TO SEE A DEAD BODY, and SCARE PewDiePie have moved the platform best known for vlogs, a random kid who likes turtles, and Charlie's appetite for fingers closer to a Netflix, HULU, or Amazon alternative.

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in.
