Welcome to Fuck Followers, the antithesis of most sessions you’ll find at podcamp. And for good reason. Fuck Followers is a punk rock movement where digital creators take back their artistic voices by creating content for the sake of creating, honing their voices & visions while throwing their middle fingers to the stresses of marketing, promoting, gaining followers, getting sponsorship, landing that network deal, or becoming a YouTube celebrity. Fuck Followers is facilitated by Moniquea Marion, a Toronto based actor and comedian who just successfully completed a web series where she created 365 unique character videos in 2016. That’s right, 365 videos in one year producing over 13 hours of content. Check it out for yourself on YouTube: Moniquea Marion 365
