UCKYA is an online news source dedicated to extraordinary and underground people, topics and issues.
Still in its infancy (founded earlier this year, 2016), UCKYA is going to try itself in the competitive world of the web series.
On their YouTube channel, they’ve currently posted video interviews of individuals such as the founder of an anti-flatulent underwear and a UFO Investigator & Contact Organizer. Though interesting, these videos however are just edited Skype interviews.
Their profile series plans on being more produced and adopting a documentary-style interview feel.
They plan on releasing around 16 episodes, each episode about 4 to 6 minutes in length.
Company founder, Shanon Culiner and content producer, Erik Steinmetz are overseeing the inaugural web-series project.
‘UCKYA Profiles’ plan on releasing early November of 2016.
