Behind the Screens of Turnt Media
Well known throughout the city of Statesboro, having more than 200,000 YouTube channel viewers, and being featured videos on sites like Total Frat Move and BroBible, Turnt Media is the latest and greatest videography group of GSU. Everyone knows who they are and what they do, if you don’t know who they are, just think back to the last super extreme party at the bars. Did you see three guys with cameras on them all night long? Whether it be strapped to their head, on a “selfie-stick”, or cautiously holding them above hectic crowds all for the sake of making a great video? Yep. Thats the guys over at Turnt Media.
GSU graduate Bobby Shubert is the mastermind behind Turnt Media. It began as simply an enjoyable hobby which exploded after he uploaded an edited video of a Spring Break trip to PCB a few years ago. “It’s always been a hobby of mine ever since I can remember, I’ve always loved making videos.” Bobby said, “ It’s just made even better when a large amount of people like the videos and give great positive feedback, then you just want to make more”. That video on its own has 90,000 views, and that’s not even the maximum on their YouTube channel.
As Turnt media took off, Bobby was offered help by now GSU senior Tyler Moody and GSU student Jeremy Yuill. All three can be seen holding cameras cautiously through drunken crowds, taking selfies with groups of people via GoPro’s attached to a “selfie-stick”, and meeting tons of people every hour. Tyler is the main social media marketing-man for the group through their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, while Jeremy is a video editor with Bobby and also the graphic designer for their business cards and ads. “Another great thing about Turnt Media is the people that you get to meet. Through doing this, we’ve met people like Waka Flocka Flame, Cole Swindle, and Travis Porter. Thats something not many people can say they’ve done.” Bobby said.
If you haven’t seen one of their videos yet, pull out your phone, search, and watch in HD. These guys put tons of work and love into their videos and it shows! But how do they actually make these videos happen? Let’s go “Behind the Screens” of Turnt Media.
1. A local event is being held and the guys over at Turnt show up to the venue. Ready to party and grab some shots (literally and physically!). Throughout the night shots from all different angles and lengths are taken. Bobby collects the SD cards from Jeremy and Tyler and then the editing process begins.
The boy’s of Turnt Media do a great thing for people here on campus. Not only do they give students and the community intense videos to watch, but they also improve the business of local bars. Whenever and where ever people see the words along the lines of “Turnt Media will be filming”, you can expect to see a large crowd of people there. Everyone want’s a little chance at fame!
Look out for upcoming videos on Shenanigans!
