LSM graduate Tom Ridgewell, alias TomSka – was selected as one of only seven individuals from the entire YouTube community to curate the site for a day, as part of a global online event celebrating all things science fiction, comics and gaming.
“Geek Week” is YouTube’s second themed content strand following the recent “Comedy Week”, and Tom, who has over two million subscribers on YouTube, was invited to launch the event.
YouTube’s “Geek Week” runs from Sunday 4th – Saturday 10th August 2013, and is hosted in conjunction with ChannelFlip in the UK and Nerdist in America. “Geek Week” will showcase more than 100 channels and unveil new videos, series premieres, and creative collaborations.
Every day of the week will be hosted by a different YouTube channel, beginning with TomSka’s Blockbuster Sunday, which celebrated iconic characters, movies, and shows that define geek culture, with a special spotlight placed on the best original YouTube sci-fi, fantasy, and animated videos.
