From YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Musical.ly, YouNow, and beyond – what social media platforms are YOU on? When asked that question, the list could probably go on and on. That’s the world we live in – the social media world and my, oh my has it changed our lives in more ways than imaginable. There’s only one stupendous convention that celebrates the wonderful world of online-video making that we live in and it’s none other than the epic and renowned VidCon convention. 8 years ago, VidCon started off as a convention that celebrates creating amazing content for online platforms such as YouTube. Now, 8 years later, VidCon has and continues to grow and establish itself as one of the biggest conventions out. VidCon, which garners over 27,000 attendees each year (and that number continues to grow) has now gone international and in addition to its annual convention held at the Anaheim Convention Center, VidCon is hosting conventions in Europe and Australia as well.

This year, the prestigious VidCon convention was held on June 22 – 24, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. As soon as you see the extra large “VidCon” sign posted outside of the Anaheim Convention Center, you know that you’re in for three of the greatest days of your life. VidCon never fails to give attendees three of the most unforgettable days – from community pass holders, to creators, those from the industry as well as the featured content creators themselves. This year was yet again jam-packed with an indescribable amount of excitement. VidCon had over 400 of the biggest content creators out, basically meaning it was three days of pure “fan”-demonium and could you blame us?! Some of the many online video makers in attendance included highly-acclaimed creators such as Casey Neistat, The Fine Brothers, Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, Joey Graceffa, Miranda Sings, Dan Howell, Phil Lester, Kian Lawley, Jc Caylen, Tyler Oakley, Jenna Marbles, Zach King, Anthony Padilla, GloZell, Kingsley, Meg DeAngelis, the Merrell Twins, Alisha Marie, Bethany Mota, Patrick Starrr, Alli Fitz, AndreasChoice, Bertie Gilbert, Caspar Lee, Bretman Rock, David Dobrik, Liza Koshy, Ingrid Nilsen, Lele Pons, Leroy Sanchez, Marcus Butler, Ricky Dillon, Rosanna Pansino, Zach Clayton, and many, many more. VidCon creators and geniuses, John Green and Hank Green were also in attendance.

Attendees were able to enjoy a ton of interesting panels and interviews at the many stages at Vidcon including the Vidcon Gaming Stage, Instant Interview Stage, and others. Attendees were able to learn more about their favorite online-video creators and even get to ask them some of their burning questions. Industry pass holders were able to get the latest insight in the world of online-video making and what’s next in this fast-paced, constantly evolving world. VidCon is the perfect place for fans to get up close and personal with their favorite creators. There were many meet and greet opportunities where fans were able to take some of the cutest photos with the creators they love the most.

The fun and excitement continued at VidCon’s Expo Hall. The Expo Hall is definitely one of everyone’s favorite places to go to and hang out at – both attendees and featured creators themselves like to stop by and visit all of the booths. The Expo Hall had many terrific areas to stop by at – from Nickelodeon, who had a whole area with tons of excellent activities for everyone to enjoy. People were able to make their very own slime to take home with them as their VidCon souvenir and even get the chance to be slimed themselves! (You know that it’s everyone’s dream to be slimed at least once in their life). Nickelodeon even had dancing sensation, singer, and social media star, JoJo Siwa debut her new music video at VidCon and even share the love by giving fans some of her signature JoJo Siwa bows.

Other fun booths and areas at VidCon’s Expo Hall included the Cooking Channel’s “Genius Kitchen” where you were able to get a hands on experience and fulfill your sweet tooth by decorating your very own donut. Dove, Maltesers, M&Ms, NBC, Despicable Me 3, Live.Me, Disney, Taco Bell, Studio71, Instagram, Hubert’s Lemonade, Musical.ly and more all had incredible activities and great photo-ops for VidCon attendees to enjoy.

Our faves at AwesomenessTV also had a lot planned out for VidCon guests. A wonderful AwesomenessTV and Live.Me ball pit was right outside of the convention center for everyone to try out and get a slow-mo video of themselves taking a dive into the ball pit. AwesomenessTV also had its festival stage where people were able to see great performances and jam out all day long. Just as cool as the inside of the convention center was the outside – tons of food trucks with scrumptious treats were lined up outside if you wanted to take a break from your hectic VidCon day and get some grub.

There is no question as to why VidCon is such a great success. No amount of words can fully describe just how enjoyable VidCon is. It’s a great place to celebrate your love for creating or those that you admire watching on YouTube and other social media platforms. VidCon has helped people believe in themselves, inspire individuals to follow after their dreams and express themselves by creating videos, and it has even allowed friendships to be created. What better place to meet new people and make new friends than at a convention where everyone shares the same love and passion for online-video making?! VidCon is a terrific event for friends and families to go to and it’s a very safe and organized environment.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had the greatest honor of covering VidCon 2017 for my fourth year in a row. VidCon is, without a doubt, one of my favorite events of the year and I always look forward to it. Check out some VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE pictures below from my coverage of Vidcon 2017 and watch my VidCon RECAP vlog below.

alexisjoyvipaccess

From showing off his admirable martial arts skills in Disney X D’s show, “Kickin’ It,” to working on Hulu’s thrilling and super binge-worthy show, “Freakish,” the extraordinary Leo Howard has always and continues to prove himself as one of the greatest actors to have ever walked on this planet. Leo Howard has showcased his impeccable and awe-inspiring talent in a countless amount of sensational projects including “Kickin’ It,” “Conan the Barbarian,” “Shake It Up!,” and many, many more, and with each project that he works on, Leo Howard brings pure brilliance and manages to make each and every project an absolute masterpiece. It’s clear to see that Leo Howard defines the word “multi-talented.” He is one stupendous actor with a talent like no other. After watching a TV show, film, or digital show that Leo is a part of, anyone and everyone will be left speechless with just how much of a breathtaking job he always does in every project. Leo Howard is a versatile actor who can take on any role and do it justice – from a martial arts pro, to young Conan, and even a high school student who has to deal with the results of a chemical plant explosion that is affecting his fellow students.

Aside from being one immensely talented actor, Leo Howard also has out of this world martial arts skills that shows his strength, endurance, and incredible passion for everything that he sets his mind to. To add onto his impressive and exceptional resume, Leo Howard has not only exhibited his talent in front of the camera, but behind the camera as well. He has directed an episode for his show, “Kickin’ It” as well as episodes for another Disney X D show titled, “Gamer’s Guide To Pretty Much Everything.” It’s so amazing to see how Leo is able to show his craft and love for storytelling whether it is through acting or directing. Some people can act, some people can direct – but for Leo Howard, he can do everything and do such a remarkable job while doing so.

Just recently, Leo Howard’s excellent show, “Freakish,” which had everyone at the edge of their seats while watching it, was released on Hulu. The show allows viewers to enter in the lives of high school students who found themselves dealing with “freaks” who are contaminated by the recent chemical plant explosion. It’s a stellar combination of a suspenseful show mixed with high school drama and we’re all certainly crossing our fingers for another season of this fascinating and compelling show.

Leo Howard is someone who has and continues to make such a great impact in the entertainment world and in the lives of many. Leo is truly a consummate and profound actor that is an incredible asset to the entertainment world and we look forward to seeing all of the continued successes he will have in his magnificent career.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had a terrific time interviewing the charming and remarkable Leo Howard and he dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what three items he would like his character Grover to have to help him survive in “Freakish,” what his dream role is to portray, what it is like for him to have directed various projects, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. Leo Howard even took on a fun speed round and revealed something that fans may not know about him, what his favorite app is, and whether or not he can keep a secret or if he tends to spill the beans – hear what he had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview below. Thanks for the excellent interview, Leo – it was a blast interviewing you!

If there is one show that gives us some major girl power vibes, it’s definitely the incredible show, Project Mc², which is produced by AwesomenessTV and is available for viewing on Netflix. The outstanding show inspires girls to follow after their dreams and it also gives girls the opportunity to enter in the world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and see that this is a field they can be a part of and one that they can excel in.

On October 4th, the lovely ladies of the cast of Project Mc² had an excellent time at an event hosted by Netflix at the Netflix Headquarters in Los Gatos, California to encourage girls to continue to pursue their passion for STEM. Members from the Girl Scouts USA had a terrific time being a part of the event and they got the chance to see an advance screening of the first episode from season three of the show. In addition, the Girl Scouts USA were able to see the wonderful cast of the show as well as other inspiring and influential women with careers in STEM including executives from Twitter, Instagram, Google and Intel.

The event was absolutely spectacular and was a great way to show the impact women and girls have and continue to make in this world – whether it is in STEM careers, in the entertainment industry, and beyond. In addition, attendees at the event were able to partake in two, fun Project Mc² experiments and get some awesome Project Mc² swag.

For those who haven’t gotten the chance to see the marvelous show, Project Mc² “aims to inspire girls to embrace their passions for learning and exploring including McKeyla (problem solver and leader), Adrienne (culinary chemist), Bryden (gadget guru), Camryn (engineer extraordinaire), Devon (artist & creative) and Ember (green thumb)” (source: press release). The show stars Mika Abdalla, Victoria Vida, Genneya Walton, Ysa Penarejo, Alyssa Lynch, and Belle Shouse.

Check out some more photos below from the outstanding event! It’s so awe-inspiring to see how girls are encouraging one another to reach their goals and work together to change the world. Comment below and tell me or tweet me at @alexisjoyvipacc, what is your favorite episode so far from Project Mc²?
