Friday on My Mind: Christiaan Van Vuuren & Nick Boshier

From Bryan Brown to the Bondi Hipsters, we're (totes) switching things up on Friday on My Mind - so come on down, 5pm at AFTRS.
Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick Boshier:  How to attract the attention of TV Networks & Record Labels...

The brainchild of Sydney creative duo and advertising mates Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick BoshierBondi Hipsters is a series of YouTube webisodes that satirises 'Bondi Hipster culture'. The duo's popularity soared two weeks ago after they uploaded their first music video, The Life Organic, proving web content can open mainstream doors with three TV networks and a record label coming knocking.

Bondi Hipsters is not the first viral comic success for the pair. Boshier is one of the co-creators of Beached Az while Van Vuuren gained international notoriety as the 'Fully Sick Rapper' after he began uploading videos while he was quarantined in hospital with tuberculosis  for which he also him won the 2011 Optus 180 Project (along with his brother Conner) to develop a 60-minute pilot for MTV which will air in April.

As the acting, writing and directing team behind Bondi Hipsters, Christiaan and Nick are amongst a new breed of 'YouTube-preneur' and they will share their ideas and approach to creating online content that takes off.
