Corridor Digital is an American production studio based in Los Angeles, known for creating pop-culture-related viral online short-form videos since 2010, as well as producing and directing the Battlefield-inspired web series Rush and the YouTube Premium series Lifeline.[1][2] It has also created television commercials for various companies, including Machine Zone[3] and Google.[4]

Corridor Digital has nine full-time employees, including founders Sam Gorski and Niko Pueringer. As of September 2020, the channel has 8.13 million subscribers and has won awards at several Streamys, including the "Visual and Special Effects Award" in 2017.[5][6][7] Its second channel, Corridor Crew,[8] consists of behind-the-scenes content, including the popular series "VFX Artists React", and has 4.17 million subscribers. Other creative endeavors include a podcast, "Corridor Cast",[9] a guillotine slicing channel with 111,000 subscribers, Guillotine Channel,[10] and a book about imaginary games.[11]

History and prominent projects

Pueringer and Gorski began working together in junior high, making student films with an emphasis on special effects.[12] In 2008 they moved to Los Angeles, where they focused on special effects for other projects. In 2010, they released a Modern Warfare fan film, "Modern Warfare: Frozen Crossing".[13] In subsequent years, Pueringer and Gorski began creating more short-form content. In 2012, they created the viral hits "The Glitch" and "Minecraft: The Last Minecart".[14][7] They were featured in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 YouTube Rewind.

In 2016, they co-wrote, co-directed, and produced the Battlefield-inspired web series Rush.[1]

Lifeline

In 2017, Corridor produced and directed the YouTube Red series Lifeline, which was executive produced by Dwayne Johnson and a collaboration with his Seven Bucks Productions.[2] The show was an American science fiction drama web television series broadcast on the YouTube Red network[15] which began October 11, 2017.[16]

Top 10 Games You Can Play In Your Head, By Yourself

In 2019, the company published a book, Top 10 Games You Can Play In Your Head, By Yourself, released on Amazon and publicized with a commercial on its YouTube channel. The book is a collaboration between Gorski and author D. F. Lovett.[17][11]

Boston Dynamics parody videos

In June 2019, Corridor released a video[18] in which a robot in the style of Boston Dynamics is abused in a variety of ways before finally fighting back against the humans attacking it. The video, watermarked "Bosstown Dynamics" instead of "Boston Dynamics", went viral across platforms, although most versions dropped attribution to the original source, with many claiming it to be an authentic Boston Dynamics video.[19]

After the online confusion, Corridor clarified that the video was never meant to be interpreted as "real", and that it would "like for people to be able to see the original".[20][21][22][23] Gizmodo wrote that the "real lesson from Corridor’s fake robot video might be just how far [robot technology has] come in real life over the past decade".[24]

On October 26, 2019, Corridor published a second video[25] in which the same robot can be seen acting as a soldier, shooting targets before escaping his human owners with a Boston Dynamics Spot.[26] This video was received very similarly to the first, going viral on multiple platforms, with many people believing it was real.

Rush

Rush, a Battlefield-inspired web series, was originally released for Go90 in 2016[27] and rereleased on Corridor's YouTube channel in 2019.

Collaborations

Corridor Digital frequently collaborates with various other prominent YouTubers, including Mike Diva, Freddie Wong (AKA RocketJump), Jimmy Wong, Adrian Picardi, Brandon Laatsch, and Logan Paul.
