Glitch Productions started as a small YouTube channel making silly machinimas. Today, they are a fully fledged animation studio about to release their first original series, Meta Runner. This is how two brothers went from their bedrooms to the big time, and are changing the way entertainment is made in the age of YouTube.
Luke Lerdwichagul (Director)
Luke has done YouTube since he was 13. For the longest time he’s done it simply because animation was enjoyable to him. When his channel picked up steam, he began to realize more and more that he wanted to make this his full time job.
In 2017, he began university doing a bachelor of Screen and Sound production at UNSW. Realizing his passion was with animation, he left uni to focus on the YouTube channel full time. He now runs his animation channel with his older brother, Kevin, and the channel is growing faster than ever.
Kevin Lerdwichagul (Producer)
Kevin graduated from UNSW doing a double degree in Computer Science and Mechatronic Engineering. Towards the end of his studies, he saw the rapid growth and success of his younger brother’s channel and believed he needed help in both managing production and handling the franchise.
Kevin later joined as the executive producer and writer for the show with the intention of growing their platform, increasing the quality of their production and delving further into original content. Since then, the channel has seen significant growth, with average monthly views more than doubling from 13M to 30M average views. They now both do YouTube full time, having established a strong brand image and popular internet personalities for themselves.
