Two students are creating and producing a weekly YouTube series.
The DormRoom is a show created by Lincoln Korver, acting sophomore, and Graydon McNally, music theater sophomore, as a way to entertain and connect with people.
The series is meant to make viewers laugh while giving them a quick escape from reality, Korver said.
“We wanted to create something for our friends and families to look forward to and enjoy,” Korver said. “It’s a show where two friends discuss trending topics, perform bizarre challenges and experiments, and give advice on everything.”
McNally pitched the idea to Korver after trying to find a creative way to connect with his family and friends in Canada, McNally said.
“We make a rough outline of anything we want to talk about then turn the camera on and just go for it,” McNally said. “Our subject matter is usually based on random thoughts we have in our day-to-day life.”
Two episodes have been uploaded so far. Episode 1 has 353 views and features a taste challenge and a quick workout. Episode 2 has 157 views and features meat carving and things to be grateful for.
“We really want people to know that this show is for pure entertainment,” Korver said. “We aren’t doing this in hopes of becoming YouTube famous or for any other ulterior motive. It’s a show we created to make others happy.”
Each show opens with an unusual fact and ends with an inspirational quote.
“I think it’s definitely entertaining and shows the personalities of two guys who might not get to show that side of themselves often,” said Hailey Hart, acting sophomore. “I’m excited to see where it goes.”
McNally and Korver encourage people to share ideas for the show.
“While we will always be ourselves on the show, we want the show to be focused on our viewers,” Korver said. “We welcome new ideas and requests via email, Facebook and comments on our videos.”
