The Truth is OUT
The CREATORS of the
have come clean. In a post on her
, they made this statement.
" To Our Incredible Fans,
Thank you so much for enjoying our show so far. We are amazed by the overwhelmingly positive response to our videos; it has exceeded our wildest expectations. With your help we believe we are witnessing the birth of a new art form. Our intention from the outset has been to tell a story-- A story that could only be told using the medium of video blogs and the distribution power of the internet. A story that is interactive and constantly evolving with the audience.
Right now, the biggest mystery of Lonelygirl15 is "who is she?" We think this is an oversimplification. Lonelygirl15 is a reflection of everyone. She is no more real or fictitious than the portions of our personalities that we choose to show (or hide) when we interact with the people around us. Regardless, there are deeper mysteries buried within the plot, dialogue, and background of the Lonelygirl15 videos, and many of our tireless and dedicated fans have unearthed some of these. There are many more to come.
To enhance the community experience of Lonelygirl15, which you have already helped to create, we are in the process of building a website centered around video and interactivity. This website will allow everyone to enjoy the full potential of this new medium. Unfortunately, we aren't programmers. We are filmmakers. We are working furiously to complete the website, and hope to have it up and running shortly.
So, sit tight. You are the only reason for our success, and we appreciate your devotion. We want you to know that we aren't a big corporation. We are just like you. A few people who love good stories. We hope that you will join us in the continuing story of Lonelygirl15, and help us usher in an era of interactive storytelling where the line between "fan" and "star" has been removed, and dedicated fans like yourselves are paid for their efforts. This is an incredible time for the creator inside all of us.
Thank you. "
Initial reactions across the forum are those of dissapointment, or disbelief as fans of the lonelygirl15 series ask for proof that the " creators " are who they say they are.
Other messages include those of support, one from a member known as Terryfic says " Well, since I donít think anyone has said this yet. Thank you for creating these wonderful videos. They are clearly a labour of love and I have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. I hope the series continues to run for a long time. "
The main dissapointment is how they revealed this truth. Many fans already suspected or claimed to know the series was fake, so that - wasnt really news, just a confirmation. It was how they decided to come out the closet which has let people down. With a simple, to the point post on a forum. I think fans were expecting a video at the very least.
So whats next? The lonelygirl15 name has apparantly been registered as a trademark, which suggests this wont be the last you'l hear from her. Who is she? Who does she work for? What was the point of it all? Watch lonelygirl15 and you may be enlightened.... or maybe just check for single, to the point posts in the forum instead.
, there's more....
Recent posts on the forum... literally as I write this, are starting to suggest the post making that statement is fake. Speculating on wether the forum has been hacked in some way. I guess theres only way we'l know the truth - BREE, MAKE A VIDEO!
