Can you make money out of YouTube? You bet, just ask these Aussies.
The talent agencies of the YouTube generation are signing up self-made superstars.
Australian Trent Stanley has been making YouTube videos since he was 13 – parodies of the original Thomas the Tank Engine kids' show famously narrated by Ringo Starr.
Now on the cusp of 20, Stanley has never had a day job at all: advertising revenue from his YouTube channel, DieselD199, is his only source of income. It's essentially a five-figure salary, part-time job supporting him through university.
