The amateur style emerged at the start of the new millennium, initially fed from an art context, where the unfinished and found became the theme; as with Thomas Hirschhorn and Pipilotti Rist. It was not until the advent of YouTube that amateur style became genuinely mainstream. This online platform provides a playground for amateur filmmakers to reference celebrity culture, constantly mocking, quoting and creating memes; forming a crowd-sourced documentation of a certain phase of the Internet and online exchange.
