On my visit to Auckland earlier in September I was lucky enough to meet Alex. An intermediate school lad he is also known as Creator Alex777.  Inspired by the gaming videos he was watching, and drawn to the  ‘anyone can create content’ ethos, he decided to create his own YouTube channel 2 years ago when he was at Primary School. Alex had used YouTube gaming videos to help him figure out how to play the difficult games he was attempting (Super Hexagon, VVVVVV, Geometry Dash) and could see how he could contribute to that culture online. He began his channel with a focus on the game Geometry Dash, sharing videos of himself playing both famous levels and levels he had created himself. He still creates Geometry Dash videos, but has branched out into Roblox and creates memes, humorous videos, and livestreams several times a week. His hilarious ‘Fingerdash but every click plays the Roblox death sound’ video connected with Roblox-obsessed youth and has been viewed over 400,000 times! If you have or know children in the 8-12 years age bracket, chances are they will find something to enjoy on Alex’s channel!
