The TV film biopic 'Game Change' airing in 2012 in March on HBO stars actress Julianne Moore as Republican nominee Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential campaign in the US. ***LEFT IMAGE*** ST.

Always had something you wanted to learn how to do? Maybe how to knit, paint or even  programming for your computer?

Don’t worry, YouTube will come to your rescue. This is the place to learn. It’s also the place to watch great and not so great music along with TV shows. But if you have a “how to” question, chances are the answer can be found on a handy tutorial video on YouTube.

In fact even movies benefit from YouTube. I watched an interview with Julianne Moore who recently starred as Sarah Palin in the HBO movie “Game Change”.  She was promoting the movie and was asked by interviewer Jon Stewart of the “Daily Show” how did she get the voice and mannerisms down for Ms. Palin.

Julianne responded she watched YouTube videos to study how she moved and the inflection in her voice so she could get as close to her as possible for the movie. The videos were shot while she was out on the road and it not only gives her just the ability to physically copy her, but she can see how she reacts.

Videos on YouTube tend to be shot by amateurs. The videos range from speaking engagements to her interacting with crowds. This helps you see someone reacting to her supporters and detractors in a more natural setting. This must give an actor real insight into someone’s persona when they have to take on a role.

It’s just another example of how people have come to use social media  as a tool for personal use and how it’s adapted to work, no matter what your job is.

What do you think; what things have you learned from YouTube?
