Shout! Studios, in collaboration with Real Good Touring, will release How Did We Get Here?, a feature on YouTube star Sean McLoughlin (a.k.a. Jacksepticeye), on VOD and digital platforms in North America March 15.
Directed by Tucker Prescott, the film follows the story of Sean McLoughlin, who was just a kid in rural Ireland who became Jacksepticeye, one of the world’s top influencers. His visibility expands beyond YouTube and gaming and into pop culture at large. Embarking on his first world tour, McLoughlin contemplates his journey, his upbringing, and the nature of modern online celebrity and fandom as he meets the people across the world who changed his life and whose lives he’s changed with his videos and the community they’ve built.
An intimate reflection on life in the digital age, the film follows McLoughlin’s journey through the highest highs — chanting crowds, sold-out shows and marriage proposals — and lowest lows — grappling with loneliness in the harsh Irish winter.
